Charming Halloween film
16 July 2002 | by (Brentwood, California) – See all my reviews

I don't really know how to tell you how interesting this movie is, so I'll just lay out a few of the facts. The setting in "Under Wraps" is realistic. The characters' friendships were truthful. And this was funny. I especially like Clara Bryant, the actress who played Amy. She is very funny and a good performer. She also stars in "Tru Confessions" that came out in April. This has a Halloween kick to it and a realistic feeling to it. All the people in my family like it, so I think that everyone should see it around Halloween. It can be sad in some spots, and with great music, you got yourself a movie!
