A reporter's dream of becoming a news anchor is compromised after a one-night stand leaves her stranded in downtown L.A. without a phone, car, ID or money - and only 8 hours to make it to the most important job interview of her life.
Meghan Miles is a TV correspondent who works at a local Tv station. She gets an opportunity to work at a network. She goes home to celebrate with her boyfriend. Her friends show up to celebrate with her. But they find her despondent. It seems like her boyfriend left without saying good bye and the network is leaning towards someone else. Her friends convince her to go out and get drunk. They get her to put on a hot dress. She eventually gets so drunk that a guy offers to take her home but she prefers to go to his place. And she spends the night. When she wakes up she gets s call telling her that the network is reconsidering her so she has to go to work but her car was towed away and her wallet which in her purse is also in it. And she left her phone at the guy's place. She then finds herself wandering around downtown LA and runs into drug dealers and people think she's a hooker. So she has to find a way get to work. And even the police are after her.Written by
The uniformed station officer in the police station scene is wearing Captain's bars, and he tells the two police officers to report to the [plainclothes] lieutenant. Captains outrank lieutenants pretty much everywhere. Further, the captain mans the radio in other scenes. It is very unlikely that a police captain would be working at the station's front desk, and it's more likely that the officers would be told to report to the captain, not the lieutenant. See more »

.. in fact the dress deserves casting credit
No matter what else is said.. the movie officially begins at the eleven minute mark when she puts on that 'can't hardly describe it' yellow dress. From that point on, it is the honest reason why you're staying watching this movie. Overall the film is cute, and has a chuckle or two (some scenes are in fact very funny).. but it's that dress sticking in your mind keeps you watching. That and the perfect hair... that's 'wanna own up to it or not' is the essence of this film. You'll watch all the rest, and not very long after will not easily remember any of it. But should the vision of that dress come back to mind, it'll bring back much more than you thought you'd ever recall.
