Customer Reviews, including Product Star Ratings help customers to learn more about the product and decide whether it is the right product for them.
To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzed reviews to verify trustworthiness.
First, it is mind-blowing how someone as stunningly beautiful as Amber Benson keeps getting cast as the 'less-than' girl. That said, this movie is what it is- a Lifetime movie that is pretty light on script and predictable, but the performances make it better- adding charm and depth where they can. It's fluff, but it's charming fluff.
I was not aware(my fault) that I could not play this dvd on a US cd player. It is in Australian format that I guess I was unaware was different. Great movie if I ever get a US version. Recommended but How many Stars? I couldn't see it.

Okay I will set my stall out straight off. Firstly I am a huge admirer of Amber Benson, both as a person and as a multi-talented artist, so any thought I have concerning a movie she does comes with a certain bias. Secondly, I'm a 40 year old guy. and as such I'm clearly not the target demographic for this film.
So with stall set is the film worth your time? I would yes very much so. The film is funny, has a good heart and good performances from a cast who understand that this is pure fantasy and schmaltz but to their credit, dont really play the schmaltz that hard making it much more palatable. A couple of female members of my family have watched the film and they enjoyed it thoroughly and as they are the target of this film, I'd call that a resounding success.
