Storyline

Small town waitress Eve Stuckley is stuck. She has spent years pining for testosterone saturate local hunk Jeff Sweeney and yearns to escape from the Hog-Chow Diner she runs. Just when Eve finally decides to pursue her man, drop dead gorgeous Linda Avery blows into town on the hottest day of the year. The heat wave is nothing in comparison with the heat that's on as Jeff and Eve's dimwitted brother Chuck decide to face off for Linda's affections. It's a priceless contest: Linda wants Eve. Eve's confidante Alma Kerns is a sexpert trained by mortician beau Red Bishop.

Now determined to "save" Eve, the narcissistically injured Jeff elicits Chuck's aid but Chuck, thinking it's part of the game, refuses to believe him. Ultimately, Jeff and Linda square off over Eve's future. Determined to anchor his position, Jeff "marks his ... Written by Sepia Films

Eve Stuckley: Define decent.
Jeff Sweeney: I don't know. But a boy at least.
Eve Stuckley: You're a boy.
Jeff Sweeney: Yeah, I'm a boy. And half-way decent, too. At least sometimes I feel like I am.

So adorkable!!
27 April 2012 | by Carladc16See all my reviews

Okay, the acting is slightly subpar -- but it is romantic, funny, sweet and sexy -- what's not to like?

Set in a small town, there is a new girl in town who is shaking some things up.

This is the kind of movie you could watch again and again -- better with a girlfriend that for date nights though -- unless your girlfriend is your date, then you'll love it!!

Take a chance on this light-hearted feel-good movie, you won't regret it. Know that it is not an "artsy" critically acclaimed movie. Just good fun!
