Storyline

Brett, a young woman from the suburbs, is an associate editor at a small New York publishing house, hoping to be promoted when, on the same day, she meets a literary lion, Archie Knox, who's 50 and who shows an interest in her, and gets a new boss, a dolly-dolly Brit. Brett is soon dating Archie, then moves in with him. He's charming, attentive, and gives advice. He also has a history - ex-wives, a distant daughter, a couple of diseases, and a photo album of former girlfriends. It's no fairy tale: family issues (and more) intervene, and Brett has decisions to make. Meanwhile, she's working with a writer who fears peanut butter sticking to the roof of his mouth. Is Archie dinner, an hors d'oeuvre, or a peanut-butter sandwich? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Cas Coyote: Well, we haven't actually settled on anything yet.
Archie Knox: Well, you better hurry. You have before you the savviest editrix in this town. I've tried to hire her myself for the last couple of years, and she turned me down. You know why? She say's I'm a letch.

A Gorgeous-Looking, Straight to Video Romantic Drama
3 May 2008 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

The oddly named movie about a book editor is lavishly portrayed in this brilliantly colorful movie that has splashes of dazzling array of photographic hues and tones that make many scenes picture-book snapshots. Overall, this romantic drama is a coming of age movie about a young lady who falls for the older man. Along the way Sarah Michelle's character must confront her own family issues as well as the complications of relationships as professional office politics. This is sort of a Devil's Wears Prada (2006) junior version of the book world. A predictable, but entertaining movie, nice to look at, with a few improvements on the older stuff. Seven out of Ten Stars.
