Douglas Ireland is in one heck of a bind. Michael J. Fox (TV’s “Spin City”) and Gabrielle Anwar (Scent of a Woman) star in this sparkling romantic comedy from the director of Men in Black and the producer of Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
While he caters to the whims of the super-rich, Ireland (Fox) dreams of building his own luxury hotel and hopes that a wealthy but unscrupulous investor will help. There’s one condition: Ireland must “baby-sit” the investor’s beautiful young mistress (Anwar). But soon, he must decide whether the love of his life is worth more than the dream of his life. In the grand tradition of classic comedies, this sophisticated and witty film puts a delightful new spin on love, laughter and romance.

WEBMASTER’S REVIEW :: WARNING — POSSIBLE SPOILERS
I think this movie is better than most people people perceive it to be. It is certainly formulaic, there is no denying that, but as is so often the case, Michael J. Fox takes what would have been a very bland character and brings some life and spark to the part.
This disc was released with no fanfare or any effort. The only special feature it contains is the original theatrical trailer.
The print is quite good and the disc is anamorphic so it is certainly a good addition to any Michael J. Fox fan’s collection or a collector of ‘formula’ comedy movies.
