Storyline

Small town girl Celeste Blodgett moves from Bangor, Maine to Manhattan when she gets a job with the New York Examiner, but hears there it's only fact checking, with little prospects for real journalism. Her welcoming young flat neighbor Kyle Halley in an interior designer, who helps her to give her apartment a make-over. At a party she learns her cousin is gay and goes by the new name Dana Harrison; he promises to teach her the city way with a fashionable image transformation, which succeeds with the help of various gay friends. Now she's ready for social life, hoping to impress her boss, reputedly womanizing magazine section editor Mitch Tanzer. He accepts to read her work, but says he can't use it because it's unethical given their personal relationship- then she finds reality is different... Written by KGF Vissers

Worth every minute of your time.

This is the funniest movie ABC family has shown in years! I truly loved it. I hope more comedies of this caliber will be aired on that channel. Ethan Embry was great for the role of Kyle, in his past work in other comedies, he has shown his ability to make people laugh and fall for his natural charm. Apart from good casting, the humor of the movie itself was refreshing. The plot was light and amusing, making the movie fun and enjoyable to watch after a long day. Nazemian and Schraft have clearly demonstrated their talent for writing light and ironic comedy, I look forward to seeing what they come with next. Now that they have proved themselves in this genre, I am eager to see their more serious and creative work. I'm sure we won't be disappointed.
