Cute...
30 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

Very cute "Lifetime" type movie about Gina (Tea Leoni), a girl who by accident ends up impersonating the life of an Italian Contessa in order to get closer to the man of her dreams, Sinclair (David Beecroft), a man who visits her shop from time to time. I have seen this movie twice and think Tea Leoni gets cuter everytime. You can't help but keep watching just to see how Gina gets out of the situation she has put herself in. If nothing else is on except this movie, I highly suggest giving it a chance.
