Rossum shines but the vibe is a little goofy
22 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

Your humble reviewer is supposed to be knowledgeable about what markets films are made for and what the writers were thinking but I confess this one remains a mystery to me.

Unfortunately it is not meant to be a mystery, it is meant to be a light (very light) romcom.

Rossum pretty much carries the film on her back and if you stick it out to the end (a very big "if") you will get a song you will not forget.

The rest of the film you may try to forget. The tone is bizarre. Very odd.

Keep in mind that one of the key themes here is sex and escort services. Somehow, this is not a compliment, the writers manage to tackle that topic without ever leaving the safety zone of a Lifetime movie or, in some scenes, the Disney Channel.

An amazing feat but a feat no one asked for.
