Last night, my sister and I felt so bored watching TV, we changed one channel to another. So, we decided to select a movie from our file of DVD's. And we have decided to choose the movie "Beauty and the Briefcase".

Lane is a freelance fashion writer living in Manhattan whose two goals in life are to write for Cosmo and meet her "magic man." This is one of those movies in which the attractive leading lady cannot find a man in a city teaming with professionals. Poor Lane! This is because Lane has a lofty list of ten criteria she seeks in a man. Things such as a sexy foreign accent, spontaneous nature, going to exotic places and fashion sense. Through her best friend (Amanda Walsh), Lane gets a meeting with Cosmo editor Kate (Jaime Pressley) and is given the opportunity to write a cover story about finding love in the workplace. To accomplish this, Lane must go "undercover" in an investment firm where she has to bluff her way was a competent executive assistant.

Much of the movie's humor is derived from the somewhat airhead Lane being agog over an office full of men, her fabricated resume and turning her work station into a fashion statement cubicle. The rather staid Tom (Michael McMillion) is her boss and Seth (Matt Dallas) is the hot prospect for office romance. But Lane meets the sexy Liam (Chris Carmack) who throws a monkey wrench into her scheme. Liam appears to be her perfect magic man but he is not a co-worker. Tom eventually gets wise to Lane who naturally gets the hang of this office work stuff and helps save the day when the big boss (James McDaniel) wants to terminate Tom's department. Which man will capture Lane's heart and who will be the rotter? That is fairly obvious early on and the movie wraps up in a predictable happy conclusion.

I actually see myself in Lane because I love writing too. The movie inspires me in so many ways. I recommend this film to all the striving writers to uplift your spirit and bring out the best in you.

Enjoy watching.
