James Patrick Stuart,
An academic in meteorology must decide between her new job as a popular weather girl and her pursuit of her PhD and fellowship. Is her handsome boss interested in her true self or just as a ticket to a network job in New York?
Surprisingly funnier than the average TV movie comedy
This cute but not painful comedy about parents who enroll in college to be near their twin children is surprisingly funny and different. The story is cleverly written without getting slapstick.
The leads are likable too. Kristy Swanson (original Buffy) has now moved into mature roles and she is quite good. Allie Gonino of The Lying Game plays her daughter and is the other familiar face. In less capable hands things might have come across as painful in parts but here things are done quite well and the dialog and scenarios kept fresh.
Worth one watch.
