love Jennifer Love
8 April 2017 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

One of the cutest inhabitants of Hollywood ever, that's Jennifer Love Hewitt. She made me sign up for PARTY OF FIVE. Yeah, The Raven watched that family saga wading through a tear-fest (oh, that one's fine at first, charming, but loses its flavor by Season Four and then overstays its welcome), and while I make it quite clear that slashers aren't my thing, I even got plunged into fishy old I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER and its even more unlikely sequel, of which the best thing really is that music video for her song HOW DO I DEAL? And then there's HEARTBREAKERS, THE TRUTH ABOUT LOVE, and the wonderful surprise that is IF ONLY. Young Miss Hewitt is one of my favorite people in the whole wide world, obviously.

However, I've checked out GHOST WHISPERER on TV in-between watching DVD, and the bits I've seen by chance struck me as sugary schmaltzy with cloying kids. Okay, that might be based on some single episode. But I am used to "barely legal" Jennifer and it is The Raven's way to prefer actresses' earlier work, so I did wonder about this title, I must admit. Of course, the theme is utterly surprising, Jennifer as a masseuse crossing the line, but as a TV show? it is with some trepidation that I settled in for this 2012 offering. Would Jennifer still be as much magic as in the good old days?

The answer is a resounding YES. Years and years after PARTY OF FIVE, she is still one of the prettiest creatures to inhabit this planet. She is still as charming and every bit as magical. Makes me want to see the original TV movie that started it all a year or so before.

Oh, I have lots to say about the plot development. It is about as realistic as the average guy's fantasy. Girl at masseuse parlor has one muscular hot hunk after the other on her table, they look like Playgirl Tarzans, hoo boy, surely that's as far from reality as can be? Those types wouldn't need to come in and pay to be, er, seen after?* The real-life client list would be ugly old blokes marooned by the flow of society, regardless of being extra-paying customers. And vengeful wives stalking outside (the Mimi Rogers scene) are unlikely to give errant "rivals" the time of day much less give them the opportunity to speak and listen to them. That bit was just too easy, completely too easy, it should at least have taken her a while. Hah, and "the madam" applauds losing a client? Scriptwriters should have taken note of SECRET DIARY OF A CALL GIRL for at least more of a a smattering of reality.

But watchable, very watchable.

*Argh, those close-up full-screen male feet soles and toes and all squirming about in ecstasy... double argh...
