| Pleasant comedy with good interpreters
This is a predictably sweet comedy, with a mildly nasty turn. Moore is great as usual, as spinster teacher Linda Sinclair. She lives in her world and finds reality distasteful.

Linda goes on blind dates, but the men are not up to her standards. Until one day former student Jason comes back in town from New York. Jason is a gifted writer, but he's planning to give up writing to become a lawyer.

Jason's father is blamed for his change of heart and surely Linda does blame him. Things take a different turn when Linda insists to have Jason's first play performed in her school.

Complications ensue, but a happy ending is on sight. If anything, this should "teach" anybody never to believe somebody's version of facts, until you get further proof.
