An omnibus of seven stories, all set in the room 720 of Century Hotel, that illustrate the tense and changing nature of relationships between men and women during each of the seven decades between the 1920s and the 1990s.
Lizzie, a young piano teacher, helps Brad's teenage daughter learn music. As she begins to break through to the girl, sparks begin to fly with Brad, but she is shocked to find out that he may want to buy the school's property.
I happened upon this one, while zapping TV channels. The face of Jonathan Tucker made me stay there. He looks like a young Alfred E. Neumann, the mascot of MAD magazine. He even acts and behaves in a way, which is consistent with what one would expect from the MAD figure. You know: "What, me worry?"
Tucker plays the lead in the movie, as a high school kid allowed to be a music industry exec for a while. The usual stuff happens, you can guess the whole plot without me giving another clue. Just one decent idea in it, really - to put a teenager in charge. That is revolutionary, if pulled through to any extent, so of course it doesn't happen here.
No, the only sparkle in the movie is Tucker, who has the ability to be so darn jolly, and still express a personality, lots of charm, and some real acting potential. It's no surprise to me, checking the IMDb, that he's done more movies later on - scripts and characters of greater challenge, at that. I have to check them out.
