Writer-helmer Rita Merson's first feature offers a heroine whose whininess is meant to be a lot more endearing than it plays, surmounting obstacles so weak they practically roll over and play dead for her. Even by its genre's comfort-food standards, this movie feels blandly circumscribed, almost child-proofed, as if any sharper reality or wit might be harmful to the intended audience. It opened in 10 U.S. markets (and Toronto) on Friday, but its modest surface polish and familiar supporting-cast faces will serve it better in ancillary sales.
