A bakery burns to the ground, the work of an unknown arsonist, and the act evokes such unique emotions among a varied group of romantics that just about everyone claims responsibility for the deed except the real culprit. Minor attempt at generating the same loopy romantic sprit as films like Moonstruck; has its moments and some spry performances, but is too slight to make an impression. Feature directing debut for Brand, who co-created the TV series "St. Elsewhere" and "Northern Exposure".
In this movie you can see Erika just in opening 2 minutes and then in last 30 minutes. She plays a girl from rich family who is arrogant and magisterial. This time is Erika in the shadow of Baldwin's, Leguizamo's and Frost's appearances and her role doesn't bring much interesting.
