Storyline

After her company was taken over, Charlie Mackenzie has the right profile to get her old executive job back, except that her new boss Ed(ward) Walcott insists on being a 'family company', so when he thinks she's wearing a wedding ring (which just got stuck when she tried it on) she dares not tell him the truth. When she has to invite that boss and his wife, she hires actor Buck Maddockx to pretend being her husband Frank, the father of her (actually the friend who lend her a fine house) daughter Nicole, without any rehearsal. They get by with some daring lies, but then the Walcotts decide to rent the house next door while their Malibu residence is being remodeled... Written by KGF Vissers

Make some popcorn and cocoa and sit down & treat yourself to this nice, funny love tale
5 May 2008 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Charlie (Tori Spelling) has worked for a baked-goods company for quite awhile. Very talented, she has earned the respect of her fellow workers. However, her company has just been bought out by another cookie enterprise, one that has a very particular business philosophy. The owner places family as a top priority, along with other important work ethics. This means that bachelorette Charlie is not the most desirable of employees, for she is seen as having a life "out of balance." Therefore, when the takeover owner (Greg Germann) arrives to interview his new employees and make decisions about their futures with his firm, Charlie is advised by a close friend to "pretend" to have a husband and children. Against her best judgment, Charlie does so, telling her new boss that she has a hubby and a young daughter, but she also impresses the big man with her smarts. In short order, Charlie is given a higher level job and a big office. But, things get complicated when the CEO asks to have dinner with her family and, even worse, may move into a home very close to "hers". Although Charie hires an actor, Buck (Jordan Bridges) to pose as her better half and "borrows" a darling daughter, Nicole (Abigail Breslin) from her friend, it is a ruse that is hard to sustain. More complications arise when the handsome Buck thinks Charlie is a very attractive female. Can Charlie save her job, even if the truth surfaces? This is a very nice and funny love tale for those who never refuse a romcom. Although Spelling may not typically be everyone's cup of tea, she is quite warm and engaging in her role as the self-sufficient Charlie. Bridges is also a very attractive love interest while Germann is likewise good as the conservative boss. As for Breslin, in an early role, she is enchanting and one can easily see why she is a much sought-after young star these days. All of a film's niceties, from costumes to scenery to script, are well above average. I happened upon this film at K-mart, in a cheaper-movie bin, so my advice is to take a stroll over to this fine store. When the work day is done, get a group of ladies together for popcorn, cocoa, and the sharing of this very enjoyable romcom.
