A poor woman is the beneficiary of a case of mistaken identity in this comedy.

For a Cinderella story, it's sorely without magic.
The brazen sentimentality at work here -- while effective in the context of what some might call "a chick flick"-- doesn't give the material much weight.
This film mistakes action for energy, ridiculous circumstances for comedy, and a mismatched male/female pairing for romance.
A watered-down star vehicle for chat queen Ricki Lake, the comedy lite has been flicked on none too delicately by director Richard Benjamin.
This is more of a movie to see on video, on an empty night when you need something to hurl at the gloom.
Cute and relatively inoffensive. At times, even funny.
Completely artificial and charmless
A waste of Fraser and MacLaine, utter failure of tone.
It would take a far defter comedic hand to successfully transform Woolrich's story from bleak and horrifying to warm and fuzzy.
Beware the hideous musical number, in which MacLaine and Lake attempt to sing "The Sunny Side of the Street".
