A Funny little TV Number that will leave you smiling

Confessions seemed like a cute little chick flick based on a best selling novel so I gave it a try along with my beautiful girlfriend Sarah. We were both pleasantly surprised in the humorous and well performed low budget TV Film that I think could have easily been released theatrically without many changes at all. It far exceeded some of the other crap I've seen make it to theaters. I have no doubt that part of the film's charm and the reason why it works is female director Dana Lustig. Most certainly a male director could not have pulled off the same level of humor and content that Lustig manages. Definitely made with women in mind, I still enjoyed the humor of a woman who is more or less the most imperfect human being on the planet and gets what's coming to her while still becoming the hero in the end.

Jennifer Love Hewitt is nearly astonishing as the delightfully horrible Katya Livingston. She's shallow, materialistic, self-involved, and not to mention a liar, thief and flakey. Not many take to her with the exception of her gay best friend. This is Hewitt's best role to date I think. She manages to be completely horrible to everyone and yet still be the heroine that you feel sorry for and root for. Colin Ferguson plays her love interest, her love god, Charles Fitz. If nothing else he's any woman's dream man. He's good looking, romantic, sentimental, and sensitive. His performance is good but not stand out. He's more there to be a pretty face and certainly accomplishes that. His chemistry with Hewitt and her character is very good which is something considering how awful her character is. Another surprise and stand out performance is the long missing return of none other than Joey...I mean...Joseph Lawrence...WHOA!! Lawrence plays Hewitt's gay best friend who is searching for love, Ferguson. Although his role is very small he plays gay very well (yes that's a compliment.) This is his best role possibly ever as well. Hewitt and Lawrence have great chemistry as well and he is comedy relief as well. Character actor Daniel Roebuck is great as Hewitt's boss and Sonja Bennett also does a good job in her small role as Eliza, Hewitt's other best friend and co-worker.

The combination of a fun cast that really work well together and a good story that is also tons of fun makes this a nice little TV treat. It won't blow you away but it's fun and it'll surprise you with it's cute little characters. I think I would love to see Hewitt reprise this role again, in fact I think a TV Series or film series would be very profitable. The film is a little bit tasteless and dips into sexual promiscuity and really for Hewitt's character to find redemption is pretty far fetched but it's still worth seeing, especially if you've read the book because I would think it's a worthy follow up to reading the novel. 7/10

A good made-for-t.v. movie!

Saw this one the other night. I thought it was pretty funny. It stars Jennifer Love-Hewitt as Katya, an ad exec. with a couple close friends. She tries to talk to people throughout this movie trying to be the "in-crowd." She learns in the end that it's not really worth trying to be there after she meets a nice guy that falls for her. She ends up hurting him and regrets making a huge mistake. I like Love-Hewitt movies and the characters that she plays in them. I think this movie could/should be a DVD with some extras thrown in. Definitely a movie that you should watch with your partner after you put the kids to bed! 7/10 on this one!

A risqué little romcom that, nevertheless, has its moments

Katya (Jennifer Love Hewitt) is an advertising executive with an abundance of talent. However, she is prone to coming in late, taking early and long lunches, and pursuing personal interests while at work. Most importantly, she is driven to become a somebody in San Fran and is constantly searching for that rich, high-profile husband. Oh, and she is ruthless to those who stand in her way. On the elevator, she meets a dreamboat named Charles (Colin Ferguson) but plays it cool. In the meantime, she is fixated with getting an invitation to THE social event of the season. One day, again on the elevator, Charles stops the contraption and insists she have dinner with him. She accepts. That big spender, Charles, he takes her out to sit by a fountain and snack on hotdogs from the stand. Is this man really the stepping stone to her big plans to be the "it" girl of this season and of those to come? Doris Day fans, beware. You will probably enjoy this romantic comedy, as I did, but this is not your mother's romcom. It has some risqué ideas and situations that make it a bit of a walk on the wild side, at times. However, Hewitt is adorable and beautiful as the girl with a mission and Ferguson is quite a pleasure as the love interest. The script has some marked originality, which is always welcome, and the costumes and San Francisco setting are to be greatly enjoyed. If you decide to watch this film, do make sure teenage girls are not hovering over your shoulder. This is not a good choice for impressionable girls. But, for those adult romance fans, add this one to your viewing list, by all means. True love and happy endings are still what most of us live for and this movie delivers on this account, yes.
