Pretty good...
6 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie overall was pretty good.It follows a middle aged screenwriter Byrdie (Kirstie Alley) who can't sell a pitch because of her age. She gets her 25 year old nephew to pitch her ideas instead. He becomes the next hottest thing, but turmoil ensues.

The main reason why the young man was her nephew was so that he was eliminated as a love interest. It was still odd that he lingered around the house and the very not aunt-like relationship they had. Kirstie's acting was brilliant, however, not everyone was as near as good. The storyline was a little bit predictable and didn't always catch my attention.

The movie was okay. Hopefully, Lifetime will air it again. It was quirky and it's nice to see Kirstie working. It is enjoyable and funny.
