Lane is nothing more than eye candy...
2 March 2009 | by moviedude1See all my reviews

When beauty pageant contestant Diane Lane wins the state title, she had no idea what lay in waiting for her when she wins the national title and the public demands mount as she carries her title across the country.

To my knowledge, I've never seen this film until today, which might be a good thing, because otherwise I would have had to SUFFER through this movie more than one time. Aside from the fluff, like "Ooh! Ain't I pretty?!?!?" and the stereotypical ideas that this show represents, the only other point I would have about this film is that it is B-O-R-I-N-G!The only thing that Lane has going for her in this film (other than her beautiful looks and obvious grace and charm) is that this film is over twenty-five years old and no one will, hopefully, stumble across this film like I did on Netflix and waste their stamp to return it.

3 out of 10 stars.
