Storyline

A young woman, struggling to become a novelist, has her life go into a tailspin. Her first novel is rejected, her non-committal boy friend decides to take a powder, her best friend moves to Mexico for an acting job, and her mother announces that her long presumed dead father is actually a hippie photographer who has come to town to meet her. Sinking into a depression at being a total failure at 28, she starts fantasizing about suicide. In her depths of despair she meets various eccentric characters including a chain-smoking Santa Claus and an obnoxious literary agent. But her belief in herself is only restored when she meets a patient in a hospital where she does volunteer work. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

This Pfeiffer's a Different Kind of Actress
1 September 2001 | by (Tampa, Florida) – See all my reviews

DeDee Pfeiffer is Michelle's sister, but the name and some physical similarities (blonde hair, good bone structure in the face, small bosom) are about all that they have in common. DeDee has her best role to date starring in this little picture as a sad sack on the edge. She keeps fantasizing suicide, standing over her dead body and commenting on the situation like a muse. Emily, her character, is a very nice girl stuck in this crummy situation at the end of an unnamed year; even her Christmas tree is a puny, miserable affair. Her mom, Mona (Teri Garr), is a rock, as is her best friend (Laura Leighton), but even with their support, Em simply cannot get it together.

Then she begins volunteering (via a goofy setup) with her dog Sam on a terminal ward of a hospital. She meets a couple of elderly people in worse shape than she is and begins to get her spark back. Except for the implied violence of the suicides, this is generally a good family B-picture.
