Storyline

Mary Horowitz writes crossword puzzles for the Sacramento Herald. She's loquacious to a fault. When kids at a career day make fun of her for being single, she accepts a blind date with Steve, the cameraman for a CNN-like news network. Within minutes she decides he's the man for her. He's quickly put off by her constant verbiage and over-the-top advances; he makes an off-hand remark about going on the road with her, and splits. She's moonstruck, writes a sappy crossword puzzle, loses her job, and decides to follow him as the news team crisscrosses the Southwest; Steve's team eggs her on. Then she falls in a mine shaft, and she and Steve become a story; is it a love story? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Great Movie!
2 February 2012 | by wlippincottSee all my reviews

I can't understand all the bad reviews for this film under Rotten Tomatoes. It was awesome. Maybe one needs to be a bit wacky to like it or have sympathy for the character Mary, but it had me in stitches several times. You realize this women is missing some basic social graces and is probably autistic, but she is so likable too! All the acting is fantastic, and it gives insight into being a roving reporter and all the nonsense associated with that, as well as the whole crossword puzzle thing. And it's a cute journey around the outer fringes of the country and plays like a slightly weird Wizard of Oz journey with interested characters popping up along the route. Thank you Sandra for this one! It will be kept in my library to watch again every few years.
