Starring Ally Sheedy,(Breakfast Club fame); Beverly D'Angelo,(National Lampoons Vacation); and Tom Skerritt(Steel Magnolias).
The movie stars Ally Sheedy (Breakfast Club, St. Elmo's Fire) and was filmed during the 80s. Ally plays a spoiled rich brat named Jesse.
She could careless about her life and those around her. She spends her father's money without care. Her dad doesn't control her because he just wants to make up for her mother's death.
Tom Skerritt(Alien, Contact) plays dad to Ally Sheedy, and he starts to learn that his daughter has no conscience.
He becomes so fed up with her disrespectful behavior that he wishes that he never had a daughter. His wish is granted by a fairy godmother named Stella played by the one and only Beverly D'Angelo (National Lampoon's Vacation).
Jesse doesn't take the situation seriously but learns quick when her father doesn't recognize or acknowledge her. Jesse is forced to take care of herself. Jesse pleads for Stella to fix the situation but Stella knows that Jesse is completely insincere.
Stella tells Jesse that if she wants her old life back, she needs to make some improvements. Jesse asks how and Stella bluntly tells her to get a job.
What does a kid that has never had to work a day in her life do with herself? She becomes a maid. Ironically, she becomes the maid of a rich Beverly Hills couple.
Of course, you know that this movie serves the purpose to teach you a lesson, which is about taking responsibility for your actions and your life.
However, I won't say anymore and let you discover things for yourself.
Watch this movie! It is funny, sweet, and charmy. It's a feel good movie.
The only reason I give this movie 4 stars is for the lackluster transfer of the movie to DVD.
However, I am just amazed they decided to release this film gem on DVD. Thanks to Artisan for releasing this wonderful 80s movie.
