Storyline

Small town waitress Eve Stuckley is stuck. She has spent years pining for testosterone saturate local hunk Jeff Sweeney and yearns to escape from the Hog-Chow Diner she runs. Just when Eve finally decides to pursue her man, drop dead gorgeous Linda Avery blows into town on the hottest day of the year. The heat wave is nothing in comparison with the heat that's on as Jeff and Eve's dimwitted brother Chuck decide to face off for Linda's affections. It's a priceless contest: Linda wants Eve. Eve's confidante Alma Kerns is a sexpert trained by mortician beau Red Bishop. She encourages Eve to use Linda's interest in her to win Jeff's affection but the situation becomes even more complicated when Linda advises Jeff she prefers Eve. Now determined to "save" Eve, the narcissistically injured Jeff elicits Chuck's aid but Chuck, thinking it's part of the game, refuses to believe him. Ultimately, Jeff and Linda square off over Eve's future. Determined to anchor his position, Jeff "marks his ... Written by Sepia Films

There is a nice love story here but there are also elements which some may find offensive
30 January 2007 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Eve is a waitress in a small town. She lives at home with her brother and doesn't have the money to shake things up. Despite being a talented artist and a quietly beautiful and thoughtful girl, a gentleman named Jeff does not give her the time of day. That is, until the day Linda shows up. She is a tall, gorgeous female businesswoman who makes all of the local gentlemen pant. Including Jeff. But, Linda is not interested in the male gender, she has her eye on Eve. Suddenly, in a strange twist of fate, Jeff finds himself looking at Evie in a different way. Is it possible for Eve to acquire what she has most wanted in life? This is a movie that has no tendencies to be sensational but which still may offend those looking for a nice little love story. The lesbian angle is hidden somewhere in the fine print of the box's cover and one may pick it up, thinking it is just a typical love triangle. But, its not. That said, it is truly has a sweet tale to tell, without shoving anyone's preferences in the viewer's face. The actors are all give nice performances, the script is thoughtful and original, and the costumes/settings are quite appealing. Jennifer Tilly and Dave Thomas are on hand to make things lively and funny, even as the story takes a serious turn. If you would be uncomfortable watching a movie with a few homosexual situations, you should avoid this film, yes. But, at its center, this is truly a love story between a man and a woman. For those who are always clamoring for more love dramas, this is an optional choice for an evening, with much to offer its audience.
