Storyline

Claire has worked for Denny for four years, and been in love with him from afar. She believes she can never have him, so she doesn't try. When his brother Regan comes to town to help sell the family vineyard, they agree on a partnership: in order to get Denny away from Margo's influence (Regan believes she is giving him bad advice), Claire will pretend to be his girlfriend, which Regan promises will make Denny unbearably jealous. Only problem is that when Regan turns Claire into the belle of the ball, he begins to fall for her himself, and it's up to Claire to convince Regan that they can have it all.

Diamond Girl is a decent distraction
1 August 2005 | by mickeyrat77See all my reviews

This is actually not that bad of a movie. While certainly the script and the acting leave much to be desired, there is actually great chemistry between all of the actors. I feel bad for Dyan Cannon, who is a surprise to see in this and horribly underutilized. If you happen to catch this movie (I saw it on WE - formerly the Romance Network) plan on doing something else while you watch it - like opening a bottle of wine and working on a puzzle or something. And make sure no men are around as I doubt they'd be able to stand anymore than 5 minutes or so. The movie "Diamond Girl" is sort of like pizza rolls, so terribly bad for you and greasy, processed and cheaply made, yet you find yourself consuming the lot until the very end.
