Storyline

Simon Roberts and daughter Sydney's advertising agency risks loosing its only major client, MacDonalds, who likes none of their campaign concepts. Simon promises a modern version of a 1980s hit one, starring a major vocal artist. The only option in the given time is haughty Kelly Clarkson, who is promised she can use the video as a launch path for her career shift into sexy. Simon counts on his irresistible deputy Zach Cropper's womanizer magic to talk her over during the recording session. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Reference is made to selling a lot of "hamburgers and reasonably-sized soft drinks." This is very likely a jab at NYC's recent attempt to ban the sale of sugared soft drinks larger than 16 oz. The ban would have been applied to restaurants, food vendors, and movie theatres, among others, but not to groceries and bodegas. The proposed ban also did not seek to ban free refills. See more »

Wow, just wow
5 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

If you take out Robin Williams, Sarah Gellar and James Wolk, cut out the schtick the clichés the hyper kinetic mania the cardboard characters and the sappy sentimental moralizing that is every Robin Williams showcase and it's not half bad. But it's easy to see why it was as one and done. There's only so much weight can pile on Robin's shoulders to carry a whole series and have it not be the Robin Williams show of Robin Williams being Robin Williams. Good Morning Patch Adams-nam. It's unsustainable. When every character is chattering at the speed of Robin Williams it's tiring and tiresome. But mostly it's a sad underline to the fact that Robin Williams career had two gears; manic and depressive.
