Storyline

Stephen Hitchcock is a divorced accountant who has a clever son, Kevin. Stephen's sister Vivian wants him to go on a blind date with a friend of hers called Sandy. They arrange a meeting in a shopping mall. Norman Byers is a computer expert. He has broken into a computer and has found some very important numbers. He arranges to hand them over to his accomplice Kelly Jordan in the same shopping mall where Stephen is supposed to meet his blind date. But Norman is chased by two shady looking guys and hasn't got time. He decides to put the numbers in Stephen's shopping bag and tells Kelly to retrieve it. When Stephen assumes Kelly is the blind date he is looking for, he takes her with him to a restaurant. Little does he know he's carrying all kinds of trouble around in his bag. Those numbers are wanted by a lot of people, or so it seems. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Nice little film, with an attractive leading couple in Baio and Nelson
2 April 2007 | by inkblot11See all my reviews

Steve (Scott Baio) is a divorced accountant with a young tweenage son named Kevin. Kevin is smart as a whip and loves playing cards for money. One day, the two head off to a shopping mall, waiting to meet a blind date for Steve, having been set up by Steve's sister. However, a bizarre set of circumstances leads them to meet a woman named Kelly (Tracy Nelson), who decides to pose as the supposed date. Kelly does this because her partner in an undercover investigation dropped some evidence into Kevin's shopping bag as he was fleeing the mall. Whew! Steve does buy Kelly lunch and appears smitten. What will happen when the truth surfaces? This is a nice little film. Baio is very attractive and congenial as the single father and Nelson is as pretty as a picture in her role as the love interest. The supporting cast, including Eileen Brennan, Richard Moll, and Hal Linden, is quite nice. There is also a lovable dog in the movie, adding to the film's enjoyment. If you stumble across this film, on late night television or at the dollar store (that's where I nabbed this small gem), give it a whirl. Without any pretentiousness, this minor film will have the whole family watching and smiling as they munch on the proverbial popcorn.
