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

I disagree with Chris Winston
23 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I disagree with some of the comments made by Chris Winston. I agree that some of the Celestes's cousin Dana's gay friends could have been left out of the movie. I also think that Debbie Gibson could have been left out. As for leaving out her cousin and/or the fact that he is gay I disagree with. I know that this is an ABC Family Channel movie but changing Dana's sexual orientation and lifestyle I feel the movie would have lost something especially in the makeover scenes. I think that Chris has to realize that homosexuality is all around us. In New york where Celeste moves there is a very large gay and lesbian population. This is something/ a lifestyle that Celeste is unfamiliar with -being from a small town in Maine. She is supposed to be a little shocked when she meets her cousin and some of his friends and also realizes that she is in a gay club. I also think in the scenes at the skate boarding park- when Celeste and Kyle make up and kiss-the gay "groupies" on the park bench in the background could have been left out.Over all I really liked the movie(an no I am not a lesbian).
