Wonderful!
28 October 2001 | by Marie-62See all my reviews

This is a wonderful film. I loved Gig, David, Shirley, and even the guy who played Ross! They were GREAT! Meg Wheeler (Shirley) goes out into New York nieve and innocent and planning to stay that way. Little does she know that she's going to run into three men, two of them who plan on change her more...well....romantically. Little does she know that she's going to meet one guy...Sophisticated, a little snotty, but very reliable and when the time comes...He wants to change her physically so that she can hook up with his brother! It obviously takes a lot of talent to play a girl who has to be so many women at once to please one man and Shirley is your girl! You will love me. Trust me, ask any gir- Well no. Ask ANYBODY!
