Storyline

L.A. TV news anchor Diana Downs is replaced by younger colleague Amber Sullivan. Findind nobody hires a 'dinosaur' of 45, she gets a complete make-over, including sports car and plastic surgery, which she always loaded as shallow. She cuts her CV accordingly and moves in with her daughter, whose career means her hunky husband, Tom, has to suspend his to mind their two kids. Thus she becomes rival station boss Hilton March's secretary and tries using female charms too for a change. Opportunity knocks when the weather man is indisposed. Amber and daughter join the station. Written by KGF Vissers

Classic tv-movie material. I liked it.
30 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

I am a Mel Harris fan, so I might be biased but I really enjoyed this movie. I especially liked the relationship between Mel's character (Diana) and her daughter (Libby). They were friends and that was nice to see. In a lot of movies the mother and daughter have issues and do nothing but struggle with each other. I also liked the vibe at the news studio. The people looked like fun to work with, a job you would find enjoyable. The movie had a lighthearted, friendly spin that was nice to view. It was a treat to see Dick Van Patten playing Diana's loving dad, and it didn't hurt that Colby from Survivor played Libby's husband ;)

Main Story: Diana Downs, an award winning anchorwoman (Mel Harris) is replaced by a younger, attractive anchorwoman (Julianne Morris). Frustrated that looks are valued more than intelligence, Diana reinvents herself. She has a facelift, gets a new hairdo, drops some weight, dresses younger and drives a sports car. She moves back to the town where her father (Dick Van Patten) and her daughter (Julie Ann Emery) live, shortens her resume, drops her first name and gets a job as a secretary at the local news studio. Now as Beth Downs, she works her way up from the inside employing good old work ethics. There is the hint of a budding romance between Beth and another aging anchorman, Michael Bennett (gorgeous Perry King), but besides a kiss and the idea that they will eventually get together, the focus of the movie is not on their romance.

Side Story: Libby, married with a toddler, is battling the decision to pursue her blossoming career as a news producer or stay at home with her daughter. Colby Donaldson has a small role as Libby's husband Pete.

In the end, it all comes together in a predictable, but touching way. You can check out more on the movie at paxpressroom.tv.
