Storyline

We all wish we could change the past. For Mel that day has come. In junior high, Mel and Gabby were the biggest geeks. Of course, Mel had a crush on the most popular guy, Drew Hesler. When word spreads of Mel's crush, he plays a cruel joke on her pretending to be interested, only to turn her down in front of the entire school. Eleven years later, our ugly ducklings are now swans and Mel is a PR executive. When Mel is assigned to handle the publicity for a new restaurant, she is shocked to discover that the owner is a handsome young entrepreneur named Drew Hesler. Written by Will N.

Nothing Special but pretty cute
22 June 2003 | by (Somewhere Over The Rainbow) – See all my reviews

This Time around is your standard tv movie fare which is always fun when you're in the mood for it. The previews aired on ABC Family all weekend long back to back and made the movie look really cute. Carly Pope plays a girl who as a eighth grader was a dead ringer for Heather Matarazzo in "Welcome to the dollhouse" (thats not a good thing). She grows up to be cute and runs into the boy who made her life awful in junior high. She and her best friend played by the highlight of the film, funny Sara Rue, decide to make him fall in love and then dump him. If you've ever seen a movie before in your life you know exactly what will happen. This was cute but not nearly as good as it could have been. A very interesting concept that could easily be adapted to the big screen. Watch it when its on television but don't bother recording it. 3/10
