Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing... it's Theater Thursday! This week's featured movie is, Don't Tell Her It's Me.
Don't Tell Her It's Me stars Steve Guttenberg as Gus, a cartoonist who is just getting over being seriously sick. His sister Lizzie (Shelley Long), a romantic novelist decides to set him up on a blind date with a reporter, Emily (Jamie Gertz) that she met during a press event. Emily however is sorta engaged to this dead beat guy who's out there cheating on her and looking for his next lay. 

Once Gus and Emily meet, Gus becomes infatuated with Emily and you could almost call it love at first sight. Too bad Emily doesn't feel the same way. She's not attracted to Gus at all and she doesn't know that he just got over cancer. Gus feels dejected and alone so Lizzie decides to give Gus a complete make over and change everything physically about him. She believes she knows the type of guy that will make Emily be attracted to him. 

Gus takes on a whole new persona and becomes Lobo. He works out, he's tan, he's got great hair and he even has a New Zealand accent! When Lobo meets Emily, she's completely thrown for a loop. She doesn't even recognize him or realize that it's Gus. So the lie begins and Lobo tries to win her over. When an accident brings them closer together and fast, Gus begins to wonder if he can really lie to win her heart and what will it cost in the long run? 

If you've never seen this cute movie then check it out! Steve Guttenberg use to be a hottie! And of course Shelley Long is funny as ever! I wonder what she's doing now?!
