Storyline

In the glamorous and competitive world of hi-fashion, Veronica Lamar now designs the clothes that she once modeled on the runway. While very successful with the "department store set" she longs to break back into the hi-fashion arena now dominated by Alonzo Palermo, her online mentor and present day rival. Doug Beckwith gets the contract to manufacture the clothes that Veronica designs for a big fashion show. But when he makes a mess of things, Veronica storms out leaving him to his own devices. With fierce competition and some back stabbing by Alonzo, Veronica suggests a merger between she and Doug "in the matrimonial sense" and their partnership is forever sealed.

Not too bad at all
9 January 2003 | by nitflegalSee all my reviews

I was rather suprised when I saw this movie, in all honesty. Many of Ms. Nielsen's movies are guilty pleasures, where one may simply enjoy watching her move about and the movie rarely lives up to her attributes. To be blunt, she's so far been at best a competent actress, but her sheer presence and beauty make even her worst films watchable. Hence, that's pretty much what I expected from this one, especially as it has never been released in the US.

I was suprised to find that it's a rather sweet little movie. It's not laugh out loud funny, and the few occasions where it tries to be (for the love of God, who thought up that horrible circus music when she's in the shower?!) it is kind of painful. It's redeemed by being a low-key, pleasant little film. One thing worth mentioning is how comfortable Ms. Nielsen seems as an actress here. She often seems to overact when really trying to project a strong emotion, something not helped, I think, by the fact that most of her films probably allow her 1-2 takes and then it's a wrap (gotta love low budget!). Here, she seems relaxed in her perfomance and it adds to the film. It makes me think that, had she not been effectively blackballed from Hollywood after divorcing Stallone, that she might have matured into a quite competent actress, and one with a rather unique charisma. An opportunity lost, I think.

It's worth watching. I do wish that Cinequan would release this on Reg1 DVD, as I had to get a Hong Kon VCD to finally see the film. Considering the crap that makes it to DVD, why hasn't this film had a shot?

Matt
