A nice movie, that has you cheering for her success
10 September 2004 | by dkp22See all my reviews

Dyan Cannon plays Annie Hackett, a single Mom who sings and dances to rock music as she cleans the kitchen, adding to the embarrassment of her two children who think she is just trying to act young. She is in an oldies trio "The Sweet Peas" where her friends "trap" her into singing one of her own rock songs one night. A tape of her singing makes it to a record label where Jeff Robins (Michael Brandon) likes what he hears and wants to use her songs for the labels main singer Darcy X. Darcy has a prima dona hissy fit and leaves Jeff with a recording session and no singer. Jeff drags Annie in to fill in for a rough cut so they won't waste the time. Everyone is entranced with her voice and presence, so Jeff puts it into a teaser test, to the rave reviews of the audiences. Unfortunately, Jeff's boss believes no one is going to buy records of a woman old enough to be their mother. So, against the will of his boss, Jeff builds a fake persona for Annie as "Mystere" and promotes a single release. Success seems assured, except Annie is uncomfortable with the lie, and having to hide her children from the public, but she trusts Jeff. Darcy's manager sets up a trap to reveal Annie and bursts the fantasy open. In disgrace Annie runs home to try to "pull the shreds of her life back together". Jeff follows her with an idea to try to show everyone how talented she really is. She agrees, but only on her terms --- her music done with her kids and friends. The movie is a lot of fun, regardless of the improbable circumstances, and you are cheering for her success throughout. Its unfortunate the movie hasn't played in a long time, and isn't available, it is very enjoyable.
