I love this movie, and I recommended it to some friends who are fans of the 80's tv series Scarecrow and Mrs. King. Like the heroine of that series, Cathy accidentally gets swept up into a world of intrigue and discovers that she has abilities that she never fully realized that she had. Along the way, she finds adventure and romance.
As the result of a car accident in Paris, Cathy is convinced she is Rebecca Ryan, a female James Bond-like character, who is the heroine of her favorite romantic thrillers. "Rebecca" sneaks out of the hospital and goes "home" to the hotel suite she shares with Demetri, her gay sidekick in the thrillers. Alan McMann, played by a not-at-all-ho-hum Tom Conti, the son of the purported author of the Rebecca Ryan novels, lives in the hotel. Naturally, Rebecca believes he is Dimetri. Although he protests most of the way, Alan is swept up in Rebecca's fantasies. When someone tries to kill the pair, however, he begins to believe there is some truth to Rebecca's constant warnings that they, and most of the people with whom they interact, are in danger. A frustrated policeman, dubious diplomats, the eccentric author of the Ryan series, a super obnoxious husband, and attempts on Rebecca's life add color and humor to the story line. Although neither the plot nor the dialogue is brilliant, American Dreamer is a satisfyingly pleasant comedy. The attractive Conti and Williams are very watchable, playing their roles with a tongue-in-cheek charm that is pretty much irresistable.
