The Makeover


Julia Stiles is Hannah Higgins, David Walton is Elliot Doolittle. She is cultured, educated, he is blue collar. There are other clues if you haven’t already got it that this is a take-off on Pygmalion with the genders reversed. It goes along fairly well, then gets a little overboard as he becomes a viable candidate for mayor of Boston. Naturally romance gets involved. I had forgotten all about this movie by the time I got around to this review, had to go back to the IMDb to refresh my memory, so you can see how much of an impression it made.
