A city girl moves to Montana for work and she sets out to photograph 12 men for a fundraising calendar.
Honestly, pretty predictable stuff. I don't think it would be a huge spoiler to say she becomes interested in a man and adjusts to her new way of life.
Quite nice Japanese movie about events over one night in Tokyo during… MoreQuite nice Japanese movie about events over one night in Tokyo during a power cut.
Several characters cross paths as we discover their stories.
It is long at over 2 hours, maybe a little too long, but it is an enjoyable story.
It's set on Xmas eve, so there are some pretty scenes too in the first part of the movie.

And she's an airhead. But it was light viewing and mildly entertaining.

It maybe could have been slightly shorter, and Cassie's voice irritated me, but mostly good.

It's kind of weak as adaptations go, I think it's a little miscast and it hasn't aged very well, either.
Kristy Swanson is an okay Cathy and the grandmother is also effective. The boys fail to convince and the mother is weak (her acting, I mean. Obviously the character is weak).
It is watchable and the story is so horrific it does draw you in.
I know another adaptation has been made and also one of the sequel, so I am very interested to see those and see if they were able to improve on this.

Adrienne Shelley and Martin Donovan are both perfect in their roles.
I just love the style and the understated way the movie is written. Fantastic.
Pretty lame TV movie.

Best thing about it was the opening shots of the cakes. Pity more wasn't made of the baking angle instead of the lame "love triangle" between mother, teenage daughter and douchebag younger boyfriend.
Fails to convince on all levels. And I am not especially demanding in my expectations of a TV movie, either.
Excellent! Got to admit, my attention started to waver in the last… MoreExcellent! Got to admit, my attention started to waver in the last part as I just couldn't figure out what all the stories had to do with each other.
The song is pretty cool and I managed to stick it out to the end.
Glad I did.
Wow, did not see all those tie ins coming right at the end when I thought the movie was actually over.
I loved the story of the book being a scam too, yet all that impact. Awesome.
Little bit disappointing. Had its moments, but wasn't consistently… MoreLittle bit disappointing. Had its moments, but wasn't consistently funny. It was okay, I guess, but I wish I hadn't bought it unseen. I usually like Jennifer Anniston's rom coms.
Re watched 6/15
I still don't like this movie. It's actually fine up until they reach the commune. I like the beginning set in New York. I think it's the setting that doesn't work for me. I don't know people like this and I don't want to.
