I love this film because both the movie and Rebecca De Mornay are bright, breezy, and fun. It's a Cinderella story turned on it's ear with a blue collar Prince Charming (Billy played by Vincent Spano) barely able to stay afloat in contemporary middle income lifestyle, but stable enough to help lift a lovely jailbird Princess (Robin played by De Mornay) out of both a physical and personal prison, but this being a contemporary story she controls her own destiny and plots her own path. An evil politician (played by Frank Langella) adds to the fun as does some laughs that springs from realistic situations. At the heart is an old-fashioned romance. We know from the start that Billy and Robin are meant for each other. The language and tasteful love scenes that give the film an R-rating are overshadowed by the entire atmosphere of the film which more accurately should have been awarded a PG-13 rating (this is not Hand That Rocks the Cradle or Risky Business). Despite themes of feminism and romance, there is enough fun to keep the guys interested too, most notably the sexy but ever wholesome De Mornay.
