My rating is positive, its a nice film, although its a bit confusing, at times
Rebecca (Alyssa Milano) lost her father when she was a youngster. Fortunately, her loving uncle (Beau Bridges) stepped in to help care for her and he's still looking out for her interests. Now a waitress in a cafe, Uncle stops in to encourage his stung-by-divorce niece to take a leap of faith and start dating again. She promises to try. Unbelievably, two men enter the cafe within 30 minutes, with requests for her phone number. One is Ethan (Christopher Gorham), a gifted writer who has just been told by his editor (Carol Kane) that his latest work will NOT be published. He is hurting and is contemplating a career change. Rebecca tries to cheer him up and does her job so well, that digits are exchanged. Not ten minutes later, another gentleman, Troy (Michael Landes), a rising ad writer, drops in for a carry-out order and ends up charmed by Becca, too, especially when she tells him how much she enjoys a certain ad he wrote. Again, Rebecca writes down her number. Over the course of the next few weeks, Becca's schedule is a whirlwind of dates and kisses. Ethan, poor as a church mouse, nevertheless takes her on picnics and hikes, even hustling Becca over to his sister's house. There, they all romp with Ethan's three active young nieces and nephews. Meanwhile, Troy entices Rebecca with fine dining, wine, and concerts. How ever will she choose between them? Also, to be honest, how can she string two men along, when its obvious both of them are getting very serious? This is a sweet film and an unusual story. Viewer, be prepared for a twisted ending that is satisfying but unexpected. Milano, very beautiful, is touching in the lead role while Landes, Gorham and the others do fine work, too. Romantic drama fans will also like the costumes, sets, script, photography and direction. Yes, the cover looks more like a romcom but, while there are funny moments, the story has a serious undertone. However, fans of romance should seek this one out before a new moon appears.
