A bored bank teller's life changes dramatically when two teams of crazy robbers hold up his branch. The main characters are held hostage and fall victim to the comedic version of The Stockholm Syndrome.
Sylvia, approaching 35, is the "sassy weather girl" at a Seattle TV station. On a live broadcast, she castigates her boyfriend Dale (who's the show's anchorman) for sleeping with his co-anchor; then she quits. She'd been living with Dale, who explains himself by saying she's cold, so she moves in temporarily with her younger brother Walt. His neighbor Byron, a computer programmer, is always in Walt's flat working. While Sylvia looks for a job, Byron offers himself as a no-strings-attached rebound-sex partner, with the condition that she not tell Walt. How will she respond, and what about finding work, living with her brother, sorting things out with Dale, and being cold?Written by
I saw this movie on video without knowing anything about it and I was pleasantly surprised. Loved the actors, loved the story, loved the humor. Terrific to see a woman grappling with real life issues and even better to see a romance between an older woman and younger man without all that "cougar" baggage. Is it formulaic, of course, but it has an independent feel which makes it seem a lot fresher than bigger movies with bigger stars. The sibling relationship was an especially nice addition. I'm a huge fan of the romantic comedy genre, but so much of it is recycled and cringe-worthy. Most Hollywood rom-coms are a few good scenes amid barely watchable dreck (The Wedding Date, The Wedding Planner, 27 Dresses, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, the list goes on). This was totally watchable and I would strongly recommend it to anyone who likes a happy ending.
