Not the best, but good enough
27 April 2010 | by (NC) – See all my reviews

Tia is a leasing agent for Bleekham Development, located in a large city where people drive cars with Washington State license plates. Her boss John is interested in her, but she doesn't really want to date him.

While visiting one of the buildings she is responsible for, Tia sees a painting crew sitting around drinking and threatens to report them to the boss. Turns out Nick IS the boss. And he is attracted to Tia. And she is attracted to him.

Outside of construction, Nick has two major interests, gardening and mountain climbing. After his father died at 40, Nick wants to live life to the fullest. Tia can enjoy working in the community flower garden Nick likes, but mountain climbing is a little too involved. And Nick, who seems ideal otherwise, seems to make that a higher priority than Tia--especially when he gets a once-in-a-lifetime chance to visit Kyrgyzstan.

Tia gets pregnant but is reluctant to tell Nick because she's not sure how he'll react. One thing is certain: she doesn't want to give up the child or not be a committed mother, because she was given up and has only recently found out who her real mother is.

John continues his efforts to woo Tia, and she even accuses him of making the Kyrgyzstan trip possible so Nick and Tia can be separated. Tia, wearing a hot red dress, goes on her first date with John, and it seems pleasant enough.

Then something happens that makes John look a lot more attractive than Nick. Actually, John becomes the only choice. But is John any better? Actually, John could be a much worse choice. He's very controlling, and he even buys the garden to develop it; Tia thinks it's just a reminder she was once with Nick.

And Tia gets put in a situation where she has to choose between following federal laws about inspections or having a frustrated client back out of a major project. The project boss assures her the job can be done safely if she'll just sign certain papers. And so John has ammunition just in case Tia ever crosses him.

I don't see any special reason to recommend this movie. Everyone talks about how beautiful Tia is. She's sort of pretty, I guess. She's very determined.

Jennifer Spence is Tia's pretty best friend, and a little better than the other actors.

Nick is nice enough, yet rugged. John is your typical greedy developer, letting nothing stand in his way, not even pesky government rules.

But this has been done a hundred times before. There are a couple of unusual twists, and the ending is interesting enough.

It's entertaining, just not special.
