Storyline

Rachel, a part-time call girl, consumed with fairy tales, is taken off the streets of Las Vegas by Navy, a high-class gigolo in search of a new way of life in Montana. Along the way, the couple is sidetracked when they decide to stop at the home Rachel ran away from six years ago. Navy nearly falls for Rachel's gorgeous and "virginal" step-sister, Lilli. Heartbroken, Rachel runs away just as Navy realizes she is the one for him. He dramatically rescues her from psychotic drifters. Written by Amanda Lowe <daro@meditnet.com>

Excellent movie, sweet performance by Yasmine Bleeth
17 February 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Words just can't describe how I feel about this movie... it's one of my favorite. Even though I normally don't like romantic movies, I just love this one. The story is so sweet. Also, the story, the characters, the music, everything is just perfect and the actors (especially the main actors, gorgeous Yasmine Bleeth and Richard Grieco) seem to be made for this movie. The movie is not just a love story, it's more about dreams and despair, you won't get bored.

I'm a fan of Yasmine, but I think even if you are not a fan of her you will most likely love her in this movie. I think it's the best and most touching acting she has done so far. I have to warn you, this might sound silly, but if you're male, you'll probably fall in love with her when watching this movie!

Highly recommended - it's out on DVD, go watch it...
