Storyline

We all wish we could change the past. For Mel that day has come. In junior high, Mel and Gabby were the biggest geeks. Of course, Mel had a crush on the most popular guy, Drew Hesler. When word spreads of Mel's crush, he plays a cruel joke on her pretending to be interested, only to turn her down in front of the entire school. Eleven years later, our ugly ducklings are now swans and Mel is a PR executive. When Mel is assigned to handle the publicity for a new restaurant, she is shocked to discover that the owner is a handsome young entrepreneur named Drew Hesler. Written by Will N.

This movie is adorable
21 July 2003 | by erum_rocksSee all my reviews

The actors are wonderful, everything is great about this movie, so for a movie on ABC Family, it's pretty wonderful and better than other ABC Family original movies. Carly Pope and Brian Austin Green are attractive and have talent. This movie is not really the average romantic comedy, well it is kind of, but really it's original, and different. To know more about this movie...watch it! I recommend it anyway. Also Mel's friend is an interesting character. To know someone in Junior High that you despised because they were popular and then fall in love with them after 11 years, is pretty cool and understandable. The person is DIFFERENT now, ever heard the expression "people change"? Well this movie is meaningful to a lot of people. The whole idea...is different, and fun to imagine. And you don't even have to imagine it because you can just watch the movie.
