Kate Duncan: I'm sorry I got all upset with you. To be honest I'm actually jealous of the time that your spending with Michelle. God, I feel like a teenager again.
Sara Jacob: I know how you feel. You have an amazing daughter Kate. She's you. You can't see it because it seems like too long ago but she's you and at seventeen there was nobody like you Katie.

cheap looking

It's 1990. Sara Jacob (Katee Sackhoff) is 17 with a best friend Kate Duncan (Kim Poirier) and running for class president. She's somewhat clueless when it comes to the dumb class jock Brian Porterson (Sage Brocklebank). They get put together in a marriage assignment. She makes a wish on a full eclipse and she finds herself in the church getting married to Brian 17 years later. Both of them are transported into lives as written in their assignment. He's a successful investment banker after a successful college career and she's running for Lieutenant Governor. However they find that their lives aren't as idyllic as they first thought.

Katee Sackhoff is a bit off as a clueless teenager and she's not the type to play flighty characters. Sara is a bit too dumb. Also it's not as compelling to have both characters transported. These types of movies are about the lead characters learning about life. His character has no rooting interest. This is her movie after all. Then there is the really cheap look of the production. It's another Lifetime TV production that seems slapped together. It's usually an uphill battle for these types of movies even without any problems.
