A bored bank teller's life changes dramatically when two teams of crazy robbers hold up his branch. The main characters are held hostage and fall victim to the comedic version of The Stockholm Syndrome.
Sylvia, approaching 35, is the "sassy weather girl" at a Seattle TV station. On a live broadcast, she castigates her boyfriend Dale (who's the show's anchorman) for sleeping with his co-anchor; then she quits. She'd been living with Dale, who explains himself by saying she's cold, so she moves in temporarily with her younger brother Walt. His neighbor Byron, a computer programmer, is always in Walt's flat working. While Sylvia looks for a job, Byron offers himself as a no-strings-attached rebound-sex partner, with the condition that she not tell Walt. How will she respond, and what about finding work, living with her brother, sorting things out with Dale, and being cold? Written by
OK, there you are, streaming away on Netflix, and you have watched all of your top want-to-see-list movies - and now you are searching for something else that catches your eye. Been there, did that...and then I clicked on the little Romantic Comedy "Weather Girl", staring an actress I personally never really noticed before. And WOW! Great job Tricia O'Kelley! I really like it when the actors can interact so seamlessly that it feels natural and spontaneous - instead of some rehearsed lines said in a movie. Weather Girl's cast pulled this off perfectly. Watching and listening to O'Kelley and her cast-mates witty comebacks and banter is what really made this movie enjoyable for me. I find myself wanting to watch it again... It would be easy to classify this as another boy-meets-girl/date-night chick-flick, but I found it to be a well acted, clever & entertaining movie. Sit back and watch it.
