Great movie, Michele Greene is hot! Would've liked more detail.
7 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

Personal: I could've fallen in love with her myself. Shows that a person really can love more than one person - not that it's morally right: it's not. But for the mistress (played by Michele Greene) to love "Lenny" no matter how often he was away shows her commitment - albeit at the expense of Lenny's wife.

Premise/Plot: A married lawyer - Leonard "Lenny" Harik (Robert Foxworth) - with two kids (and one on the way) opens an office less than two hours away from his home. He needs to hire an assistant. He interviews a number of girls - the movie shows him telling one that he must make a "final review" before making his decision. In walks Virginia "Ginny" Brymer (Michele Greene) to apply for the job. Although she was not on the list of approved candidates from the local high school, she is enterprising enough to apply for the position and show a letter of reference from one of the school's faculty.

It is better left at this point for you to watch what happens, but suffice it to say that there are many "positions" these two characters will get themselves in!
