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

14 March 2004 | by (los angeles) – See all my reviews

Imagine Carrie Bradshaw before she met the gals and learned to walk in her manolos. Well thats probably what this movie set out to do. Since it is ABC Family you can expect to see nothing more than Grade C fluff. Yet another case of the pretty, ugly girl ala Majandra Delfino in glasses. Did we learn nothing from the genre spoof "Not Another Teen Movie"? The biggest problem with this movie is the blatant stereotypical gay "CHARACTERS". Just what the world needs to see is some more gay CLOWNS on TV. I look forward to a time when gay characters will be given a little more depth than to simply yell "You Go Girl" every now and then. I say shame on ABC Family--next time they should try and get some input from real living, breathing homosexuals before they put on a gay minstrel show.
