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 (1977)). 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 remake just does not live up the the original. No chemistry between the leads, and I can't remember the last time I've seen cleavage (obviously silicone) that was too high on the female leads chest. And she wasn't even a pleasure to look at. The male lead, what's his name, seemed invisible to me in the role.
Do yourself a great favor and rent the original instead.
