Storyline

Jonathan Younger, a slick, cool and flashy owner of a self-storage business loves two things the most. His job - and female customers. His hardworking common-looking wife and business partner Penny does not approve of this at all and even fantasizes about killing him. One day, after flirting with a pretty customer, Jonathan hits a huge Wurlitzer organ (musical instrument) which releases a thundering sound that terrifies unsuspecting Penny and she instantly dies from a heart attack. Jonathan and his son Winston must now run their business together. Winston wants things to work, but series of quirky and annoying customers brings him to the edge of sanity. Meanwhile, Jonathan starts seeing Penny's ghost, but the more he sees her, the hotter and younger she looks. She is also as flirtatious as ever, so he falls in love with her all over again. Will Winston manage to save their business or will he completely lose it? Is Jonathan really seeing Penny or is he losing his mind completely?

A gem of a film and a wonderful song
17 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wonderfully acted, an interesting story, and a song that is so good (and, dare I say, commercial?) that it's surprising it hasn't been better discovered along with classic show tunes. It's not the "Show Me Your Face" that appears in a Google search; it's an original song, with music by Bob Telson (also did Baghdad Cafe) and clever lyrics by Lee Breuer. One real treat is Donald Sutherland's singing of this love ballad. Another nice aspect is that it is a his-and-her song, which makes for two person performance in the same way as "Baby, It's Cold Outside." Such songs are pretty rare and valuable. And yes, I'm writing mostly about the song and not the movie - that's because while I enjoyed the movie (a random find on a dusty shelf in a video store), I loved the song to the point of transcribing the lyrics and creating a lead sheet for it.
