Funny, touching, believable, addicting!
I waited six months for this movie, and I was completely thrilled with it! This film was structured to showcase Camryn Manheim's considerable talent, along with her warmth and intelligence, and a few unique quirks thrown in just to make life more interesting.

Scott Cohen was the perfect "Roxanne" for Camryn's "Cyrano" in this modern, feminine twist on the classic Cyrano de Bergerac story set in a comedy club. Cohen was strong, intelligent, funny, sensitive and vulnerable, the perfect man for any woman. His smile and laughter were engaging and infectious. Scott Cohen fans in particular will appreciate his big entrance, which was quite dramatic and breathtaking. "Now the rest of the world will sense how we feel when he enters the room," one woman gushed in a mailing list after this show aired.

The situations in which these characters find themselves are very believable, and the pain Samantha Berger (Manheim) experiences in her daily life accurately represents what goes on in the real world for larger-than-average women. Scott Cohen has a way of looking at his leading lady that makes the rest of us melt in our chairs and wish we were in her place. The chemistry between these two is electric.

I sincerely hope ABC will release this film on VHS or DVD for those of us who would love to play it again and again.
