Hamburger joint waitress Sally Jackson is pregnant. When Beatrice, the wife of the father, finds out about his infidelity, she sends her sons from a previous marriage, military pilots Angus and Dorian Montier, to scare the living daylights out of him. Their gunship does such a good job, without hitting him, that he dies from a heart attack. Worrying about radio interference that night, they investigate who might have heard too much within the fairly empty reception perimeter, and soon discover only Sally could, still ignorant about her affair with his step-dad Henry. Dorian takes a job there to be sure, but soon falls for her himself, while mother-obsessed moron Angus would do anything to anyone for her honor... Written by

Dorian and Angus claim to be AH-1 cobra pilots in the "Air National Guard". The Air National Guard, which is a reserve component of the U.S. Air Force, however, does not have cobra helicopters in their inventory. Only the Army Natinal Guard and the U.S. Marine Corps fly the AH-1 attack helicopter. Dorian and Angus though, are wearing Air Force lieutenant bars (blue colored) on their flight suits, not Army rank (black or gold colored) as an actual cobra pilot in the Guard would have. See more »

Oh, can you sing?

This Movie Is Much Better than the Marketing of it would have you Believe.
I just caught this movie on cable, this was the first time I saw it. I remember seeing the adverts for it and thinking it looked mildly interesting, but that it was a piece of romantic comedy fluff that I could wait and rent or something and watch at home without inflicting $20 in movie tickets and an evening of "Chick Flick" on my Husband. BOY! I wish I'd slipped a tape in, cause he would've loved it!!! It was definitely a movie worth full admission in a theatre. The Marketing Department, apparently didn't watch the movie, they sold it all wrong.
I have noticed an increasing trend in that direction, I've skipped some because the marketing made them look AWFUL only to find out they were real gems.
If you are in the mood for skillful mix of mystery, romantic comedy, and dark humour then I strongly recommend you rent this movie, or catch it on Cable.
