Storyline

Tiffany hosts and her friend Liz produces Renovation Project, the Home Design Channel's platinum standard - in every respect - television show, which is all about presenting restrained elegance, including of Tiffany, as shown by their high end sponsors. The show was originally produced by Tiffany's former boyfriend Haiden, who discovered her, the two who drifted apart as their careers progressed, Tiffany at the time working on perfecting her on-screen image. With increasing competition eating into the show's ratings including from Haiden's newly produced show Flip It Up also on the channel, Kimberly, one of the network executives, without telling Tiffany or Liz beforehand, brings back Haiden to co-produce, he to help usher in a repurposed show which in its current form may now be seen as repressed rather than restrained: instead of just a renovation of a house, the show would be a "renovation" of the homeowner as well, a complete lifestyle makeover if you will.

Get's better
15 January 2021 | by Jackbv123See all my reviews

There are two things I don't like to see in a review. "Worst movie ever" or something similar. And people saying a movie is terrible while admitting they only watched 10-20 minutes. I've watched so many movies where I hated the start for any number of reasons and ended up liking the movie.

This movie started out so that I was thinking it might actually merit the statement of worst movie ever. Then a bit further I decided, maybe it just deserves worst premise ever. Then I wondered if maybe it was a parody on reality makeover shows since it was combining home makeover with a makeover of a person. I haven't completely given up on that last idea.

Here's the awful premise: oh yeah, who wouldn't want to watch a reality makeover that comes in and tells a blue collar guy that not only is his home terrible, but he is a loser personally as well. Insult the guy and expect him to take it. Not only that but force the makeover on him when he doesn't want anything changed in the first place. I loved how they snuck that contract in and not only did he not read it, but neither did Tiffany when she promised him it would be great.

They keep insulting him well into the movie. They want to force a blue collar guy into high fashion, men's style.

The acting was fairly good with the possible exception of Clayton James whose only contribution was to stand around and look either bored or disgusted. Oh and there was Johannah Newmarch's fake smile that wouldn't fool anyone.

I started to like Laura Mitchell in the second half and there was even a little chemistry developing with Dennis Andres even if it seemed like forever before they started to connect. In the first half, they didn't even have that playful banter because Tiffany was completely missing anything Brooks said or felt. Complete disconnect.

Like my title say, things start to get better the deeper we go into the movie. The climax and ending aren't half bad.
