In the lonely American Southwest, life is slow for the desert inhabitants of Coyote County. Although it reflects the diversity and pride of the Coyote County residents, local talk radio station K-RAP struggles financially, withering like a tumbleweed on its way to oblivion. Meanwhile, a rising radio personality from Los Angeles reluctantly drives through the hot desert toward Coyote County. His name is Jack Proctor. Upon visiting K-RAP, Jack meets the motley crew that works to keep the place running. These odd but charming individuals are a snapshot representation of the population living in this desert region. Jack meets Mr. Sanchez, the "maintenance engineer" and host of a "fix it" show; Raymond, the former-military accountant and host of an alien and paranormal phenomena talk show; Doyle, the sound engineer and host of a technology "geek" show; Mrs. Hopps, host of a cooking show and owner of a local café where everyone loves to eat and hang out; and Lauren, the assistant station ...

A Nicely Done Romantic Comedy
16 January 2019 | by tabunoSee all my reviews

7 August 2013. This romantic comedy follows in the footsteps of Doc Hollywood (1991), He Said, She Said (1991), and more recently has elements found in Morning Glory (2010). What seems to be memorable about this movie is the nasty and almost acidic and cold relational encounters between Lauren and Jack that almost tears the comedic tolerance tone of the movie. However, as such romantic movies mostly go, the bad goes with the good, and the polar extremes allows the good to be a might better because of the contrast. There is happiness and sadness in the movie's plot, there's relational insight and a comparative offering about romance and love.

The movie focused primarily on the two stars in the movie, with brief glimpses into other characters, though the other on the air broadcasters were indeed pretty much ignored and cut short in this 90 minute movie. In some respects the ending might have been more intriguingly different and the opportunity was there, but the script didn't risk being more independent and different in its approach to the classic romantic comedy. The movie was great about avoiding stereotypes, incorporated ultimately a balanced perspective about relationships with integrity, nevertheless, it still seemed to be overly convenient and a tad simplistic in its overall presentation of its major theme about love.
