Storyline

A washed-up 80's pop star suddenly has a new direction in life when he discovers that he has a teenage daughter, Olivia, in Cardiff, Wales. The result of a weekend affair he had back at the height of his fame produced Olivia, a newspaper delivery girl for the South Wales Echo. He arrives in the small Welsh town, unsettling the life of his ex-lover while inspiring his newfound daughter to follow in his footsteps with a musical career of her own, against the wishes of her mother.

A Nice Surprize
29 January 2004 | by moviechic_CarrieSee all my reviews

I had heard nothing of this film until I saw it arrive at the video store. It was a cute movie and the casting was great. I enjoy all of Craig Ferguson's work and he did a wonderful job once again. I don't think acting will be Church's forte nor singing anything other than her main lineup of music (I realized while watching this how different singing styles vary and if they can be pulled off by one person) Catch this film if you enjoy a nice, pleasing film and a good soundtrack.
