Storyline

Musical dancer on the way out (at 36) Paula McFadden had it swell with actor Tony DeSanti, but instead of taking her to Hollywood he gets a European movie part. He even sublets their (his) New York apartment to Elliot Garfield, who generously lets her stay, even keeping the master bedroom. Pragmatic pre-teen daughter Lucy soon takes to his charm, but Paula remains determined to hate all actors. Despite the stress of a Broadway Shakespeare lead he must play too queer for Frisco, he's determined to snatch romance from ingratitude. Written by KGF Vissers

This was actually one of the better made-for-television movies I've seen. It was a good love story and a few laughs here and there. The only problem with is it got sort of confusing while they were fighting. When I thought they liked each they were really mad at each other. I also thought they could have done more to the ending. The people at the studios left you hanging. Other than those thoughts though, this was a movie a person should see. I would not recommend it to people who dislike romance movies.
