Great Scenery, Great Actors, Valentine's Story
4 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Falling In Love With The Girl Next Door" is definitely worth watching just to see the scenery of beautiful Catalina Island. You do get to see quite a bit of the real island in this show, and nothing is really 'faked' there - as many TV shows tend to distort the actual area where they're filmed. Quite a line-up of talent too. Patty Duke, Shelly Long, Patrick Duffy and Bruce Boxlietner all do well. Story line is a little on the weak side, but it's still cute nonetheless. It's a good Valentine's Day story, and okay as a TV movie, but not Emmy-award winning material by any means. The lead actress is quite good and I look forward to seeing her in future movies. Overall, a good movie to watch on a winter's day. Story is a little predictable, so I won't tell you any more about it, other than you'll have to watch it for yourself.
