Review

Our Score
You'll need wellingtons to wade through all the slush in this contrived and rather sickly romantic drama. Eager to push the obvious buttons, it sees struggling pulp fiction author Dean Winters inadvertently receive an entire life makeover when he's asked to look after an ex-girlfriend's six-year-old daughter (Emily Mae Young) for a few weeks. But though the youngster's precocious problem-fixing is undoubtedly meant to be ultra-cute and amusing - particularly when she's matchmaking with former Baywatch babe Yasmine Bleeth - in truth her mini-adult act is increasingly creepy and unbelievable. That said, none of the performances are very convincing, a fact compounded by writer/director Bryan Michael Stoller's weak execution and frequently cheesy script.

Summary

A pulp-fiction writer forms a strong emotional bond with his former girlfriend's six-year-old, unaware the child is in fact his own daughter, and realises the time has come to make a fresh start. The little girl inspires him to write a successful series of children's bedtime stories, while playing matchmaker between her father and the beguiling woman next door. Drama, with Dean Winters, Yasmine Bleeth and Emily Mae Young.
