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
This "updated" remake involved little rewriting of the original 1977 film (The Goodbye Girl). The screenplay is word-for-word and scene-for-scene from the original script with the exception of a few curse words removed to make it appropriate for television and a line that referred to Richard Dreyfuss's height in the original that wouldn't make sense when said by Jeff Daniels.

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.
