Storyline

Award-winning sports columnist Pete is quite pleased with his slightly sleazy frat boy image and frolicking life style. Alas, the owner forces him to allow ambitious TV fashionista Ashley, who is used to perfectly-groomed fiancé Christopher, to give Pete a makeover by the launch of his book, as his slouchy look won't do on promotion tour. His buddy Marty tests the dating potential. Learning about each-other's worlds, they may even fall in love. Written by KGF Vissers

Not perfect, but wonderful and feel-good
8 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not perfect, but wonderful and feel-good. It is the kind of movie you can enjoy alone (even if you're single!) - you don't have to have a date to enjoy it. It is a good movie for a single hopeless romantic. The beginning half had some moments of incredibly brilliant scripting (I laughed or chuckled several times during the movie). The latter half took some stretching of our ability to believe and somewhat less brilliant scripting, BUT, it was always feel-good and good-natured throughout. Generally compassionate and considerate characters throughout as well. So 1.75 thumbs up from me. I was impressed with all of the actors' abilities as the movie progressed. And I am left smiling after the movie and in a good mood! So overall, it was good.
