Then one day a quirky accident puts Madeline in an interesting dilemma...a situation that could solve all of her problems... Written by C. Lim

Two Mops -Way Up!
23 October 2005 | by david-2123See all my reviews

This independent feature is both witty and poignant with rich characters wonderfully portrayed by a talented cast. Set in San Francisco, we follow the life of a cleaning lady who isn't satisfied with her station in life or her choice of a husband. Disappointment looms everywhere however everyone's life is about to dramatically change in a split second. A beautiful romance ensues after a life changing incident in this well scripted film which is peppered with laugh out loud humor. Bravo to Curtis Lim and Nancy Phelps and their cast for producing such an engaging and entertaining film. The cinematography alone makes this a film to see.
