Storyline

Small town girl Celeste Blodgett moves from Bangor, Maine to Manhattan when she gets a job with the New York Examiner, but hears there it's only fact checking, with little prospects for real journalism. Her welcoming young flat neighbor Kyle Halley in an interior designer, who helps her to give her apartment a make-over. At a party she learns her cousin is gay and goes by the new name Dana Harrison; he promises to teach her the city way with a fashionable image transformation, which succeeds with the help of various gay friends. Now she's ready for social life, hoping to impress her boss, reputedly womanizing magazine section editor Mitch Tanzer. He accepts to read her work, but says he can't use it because it's unethical given their personal relationship- then she finds reality is different... Written by KGF Vissers

This movie is wonderful. The cast put in some great performances. Nick Brendons performance as Dana is a particular favourite. The lines are funny and witty and the stereotypes, while exaggerated to the hilt, are obviously done very tongue in cheek. Celeste is wonderful, though I did find the transformation to be a little over the top (Turn her into a mirror image of her sister and suddenly she's hot?). Dana's friend's are particularly amusing, very three stooges. And of course there's Celestes neighbor who for a while could be seen to fit the stereotype of a gay man but the message of the film is clear, don't judge a book by it's cover.
