Heart and Head
21 September 2014 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Lindsay Hartley is a book editor working out of Portland Oregon with a great head for pulling the best points out of a book and a lousy heart for picking guys to fall in love with. So, when her best friend calls her down to Los Angeles to edit best-selling author Morgan Fairchild's latest trashy romance novel, she finds herself trapped between Miss Fairchild's take-it-or-leave-it attitude and two guys. One of the guys looks perfect on paper; he's a rising entertainment lawyer. The other is a nice ne'er-do-well.

Well, it's a Hallmark romantic comedy, so we know how it will turn out, complete with the well-mannered Black boy Lindsay and the nice guy mentor. Nonetheless, director Ron Oliver gets some good performances out of his actors. Morgan Fairchild shows some subtlety and frozen humor in her role, quite at odds with the writing. In fact, the script seems to have extraneous issues stripped out to pace the whole show faster and funnier than it rates to be.

It's still not great, but it is a very watchable time-waster.
