Storyline

Virginia small town local Ford Sawyer, a comics artist, takes an instant liking to his new neighbor, Cilla McGowan, a former child TV starlet who moves from L.A. to renovate her Hollywood celebrity grandmother Janet's rural last residence and start a career after passing the local contractors exam. Grumpy old neighbor Carl Hennessy is suspected of the vandalism on her garden, garage and home, even knocking friendly ex Steve Chensky. Seeking comfort and security, Cilla comes to depend on Ford, who elected her as model for his next hammer-swinging Celtic comic heroin, and they fall in love. Janet's stuff yields intriguing information which proves relevant for the present aggression, with unexpected ramifications. Written by KGF Vissers

It's all about the lips
22 August 2009 | by (Thousand Oaks, CA) – See all my reviews

Tippi Hedren is in this movie so I was watching for her. I didn't know Tippi Hedren was going to be in the movie until after it started and I saw her name in the credits. I'm not actually a Tippi Hedren fan so I didn't expect I'd recognize her - because it's been 46 years since The Birds and when you've got 46 years between watching one movie to the next then you can expect there's going to be some changes. So I'm watching this movie trying to figure out who Tippi Hedren is. I know it's not the main character because she's young and Tippi's got to be, well, at least 46. The main character is this young girl who looks kind of like a duck. I don't mean to be rude but I don't know how better to describe the new Brittany Murphy look; which I do not like. It couldn't possibly be what Ms. Murphy wanted the day she when into her doctor's office and said, "Big lips please". Any doctor that would take that pretty little face and do what he did has to be a quack. So, to be honest I was having as hard of time recognizing Brittany as I was Tippi. It kind of ruined the movie for me, because I went in knowing it wasn't going to be a guy movie anyway, but then when I found that Brittany had gone all platypus I was really thinking, what's the use? Because the story is weak, the movie plods, and Brittany has duck lips.
