A dream for fans of romantic comedy, a miniseries, now on one disk, yum!
2 April 2012 | by inkblot11See all my reviews

Clarissa (Sarah Chalke) has enjoyed the high life for quite awhile in Beverly Hills. Although not as wealthy as some friends like Jennifer (Marla Sokoloff) and Gravy (Judy Greer), she has been fortunate to have her parents support her, between rich boyfriends. Now, however, the mirror is cracking, as she is newly over thirty. Its time to forget a former flame that broke her heart, Simon (Paul Leyden) and find a husband to finance her Jones-like habits. Fortunately, a looker has just come to Hollywood with a great script and big bucks. That would be Aaron (Philip Winchester), who has all the ladies saying yum, yum! Since Clarissa does have plenty of connections, Aaron responds kindly to her attentions. Also, the lovely socialite plays a bit of "hard to get", fanning flames, and soon the duo is a hot, engaged couple. But, Simon suddenly steps into the picture again, complicating things, while Clarissa's parents (Gregory Harrison and Maria Conchita Alonso) stir things up, too, with their various problems and issues. Then, too, the circle of female friends needs Clarissa's help with married boyfriends, handsome pool jockeys and so on. Will Clarissa learn any lessons on her road to wedded bliss? Yes, indeed! There is much more to this very fun romcom's plot than can be discussed here. After all, it was a miniseries when first broadcast. But, fans of the genre will just eat it up. Chalke does a terrific job as the title character while all of the others do nice work, too. Special words of praise should go to Greer, for she is certainly the funniest, prettiest second fiddle ever, in this film and in all of her work. Let's hope someday she is truly appreciated. Winchester and Leyden are two immensely attractive actors, also, so hearts will be pounding during a view. Costumes are to die for, as they say, while sets, script, and lively direction complete the movie's road to success. Man, gals, go get this one soon.
