What the World Needs...

More good made-for-TV movies.  And I'm the one to deliver.

Alright, rom-com junkies. Go to Netflix and watch My Girlfriend's Boyfriend.  Three reasons I liked this:

1) No inappropriate material: no cursing, sleeping around, what-have-you.  Extremely rare in this genre, unless you count our hero Jane (Austen), and even she was a little saucy.  All those hushed-up marriages of convenience, such as Lydia and Wickham.  She loved the bad boy  Case in point: watch Mansfield Park. 

2) An honest-to-goodness plot twist.  Really!  I was surprised!  It was great!

3)  Jimmy Olson from the 90s Lois & Clark stars as one of the leading men, and let's just say he's aged well.

So when you're bored folding laundry, look up this little gem, and you can thank me then.

Before you know it, it'll be December and I'll be fa-la-la-la-Lifetime Christmas movie-ing.  That really is the most wonderful time of the year!
