A REALLY LOVELY FUN MOVIE
31 August 2004 | by dkrobSee all my reviews

A film with Shelley Long is usually a fun film and this certainly is. Two excellent female co stars one with a beautiful Southern accent Two very good mature male actors one French and another one with a lovely Southern accent make up the romance interest. The icing on the cake is seeing Miss Long with her lovely smile, beautiful wide open eyes and a voice that sounds like she is sucking a plum time and time again. And the end of the film is when Shelley is reunited with her husband who she has missed soo much even though she enjoyed her holiday. This film is so easy and soo enjoyable to watch that I am amazed it isn't seen on television more. The location of the film is a lovely beach called Paradise and it is soo enjoyable that you can forsake your holiday and sit an watch this film instead and loads an loads of 20 year olds thoroughly enjoying themselves too.
