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.

Lake is a rather chilly and distinctly unpersuasive presence.

You'll be saying 'No, Ricki!' instead of 'Go Ricki!'

It would take a far defter comedic hand to successfully transform Woolrich's story from bleak and horrifying to warm and fuzzy.

This film mistakes action for energy, ridiculous circumstances for comedy, and a mismatched male/female pairing for romance.

This is more of a movie to see on video, on an empty night when you need something to hurl at the gloom.

Lake Goes From TV Talk to B Movie By Suzanne Tobin Washington Post Staff Writer April 19, 1996 In this case of mistaken identity, Ricki Lake's career takes a dubious step from trashy TV talk show to B movie.

Beware the hideous musical number, in which MacLaine and Lake attempt to sing "The Sunny Side of the Street".

An anxious-to-please romantic comedy about mistaken identity that sounds vaguely familiar.

Lake, in the central role, seems distracted and only nominally interested in what's going on around her.

A watered-down star vehicle for chat queen Ricki Lake, the comedy lite has been flicked on none too delicately by director Richard Benjamin.
