Fling yourself down on a sofa, all you Ritter, Sellecca, and romcom fans, and enjoy this nice little piece of fluff
15 July 2008 | by inkblot11See all my reviews

Gloria Franklin (lovely Connie Sellecca) lives in the city of Angels, where she is about to marry her longtime, snobbish boyfriend. Although she detests his overbearing attitude, at times, such as the moment when he tries to tell her how best to load a dishwasher, his business prowess means that he will be a good provider for the future. Yet, when she telephones her fiancé at his hotel room (he is on a work-related trip), a female answers. She concludes, rightly, that he is cheating on her. This makes her see red and she decides then and there to have her own "last fling" 8 days before the actual wedding. After all, didn't she meet a funny, charming man, Philip (John Ritter) at the zoo and doesn't she still have his phone number? Lawyer Philip, meanwhile, has been waiting for her call, for he was instantly smitten with her beauty and kindness. They arrange to travel to a beach in Mexico, where Gloria has access to a condo. But, after an idyllic day and night of romance, Philip wakes up to find that Gloria is gone, leaving him a video which explains her impending marriage in a week and her decision to break off all communication with the young attorney. Philip is in agony. However, he soon resolves to "find" Gloria and try to stop her from marrying a man she does not love. Can he succeed? This is a made for television movie that successfully entertains fans of romantic comedy or fans of those attractive stars, Ritter and Sellecca. Sellecca looks most beautiful and her sweet nature is very charming, although one would like to shake her for choosing to marry an unfaithful snob. Ritter, as can be expected, is likewise charming and fetching, with his abundant talent for humor on display in every one of his scenes. They are the reasons to see this film, as the production is definitely average, at best, with merely adequate, and decidedly dated, costumes, scenery, and camera work. The script, too, although romantic, is nothing to write home about, either, and only comes to life through the hard work of the two stars. If you, like many other fans of humorous love tales, are always looking out for the available films in the genre, here is one to try. So, grab it at the nearest outlet and fling yourself down on the sofa for a nice little reprieve from the cares of daily existence.
