Storyline

A pop star for approximately thirty years since she was fifteen, Debbie Taylor has led a superficial life without really knowing it. She begins to understand it when everything in her life falls apart. Her singing career already almost non-existent as a so-called has-been, the record label which was established on her name drops her, with no other ready to sign her. She is a jet setter who has gone into debt in the expectation that she could always release another record to make more money. On top of these professional problems, she and her actor boyfriend Liam break-up on the discovery that she didn't mean as much to him as he did to her. Not knowing what to do, Debbie heads to Youngstown, Ohio to live with her sister Denise, her husband Tim and their adolescent daughter Natalie, who eventually come to realize that her stay is not just a simple vacation as she had implied. Denise had already suspected something as Debbie and she never really understood each other's lives, Debbie who ... Written by Huggo

Surprisingly Good
5 March 2018 | by beachy-38431See all my reviews

I missed this movie when it first came out. I never was a Debbie Gibson fan. And I agree with several of the things the other reviewer said. Plus I really don't think Debbie Gibson is all that pretty (Pascele Hutton is very pretty), she is not a great singer or actor. But she was perfect for this part. I agree that the good story was the renewed friendship between the sisters, but the love story was pretty good too. I also disagree that it is unrealistic that Debbie can develop into a good teacher in one day. No matter what the politicians say, good teachers are born, not created in a college. My wife and daughter were born to teach. I found out I was not, though I had a master's degree in the subject. When I did finally find my calling, I inspected schools. We had a governor who actually said, "anyone can teach". I saw many people come out of industry and the military who could not. A few could. So to me, the real story was her love for her students and how she found her true calling, to teach.
