Home Fries movie review

Home Fries

From the trailers, one might expect this to be a simple romance or romantic comedy. It is more complicated than that.

Henry Lever suffers a heart attack when he is buzzed by two reservists in an A.H.-1 Cobra Attack Helicopter.

Our pregnant heroine Sally Jackson (Drew Barrymore) inadvertently overhears the crime, and the Army National Guardsmen Dorian and Angus who piloted the craft must discover her identity and remove the threat to their liberty.

Barrymore plays the heavily pregnant working girl who is adept at facing whatever life has to offer her with good sense and humour.

Dorian:You a big country music fan?
Sally:Yes. I dream of being a big hit singer someday.
Dorian: You sing?
Dorian: But you want to be a singer?
Sally:Well, I dream of being a singer. I think that's why it's called a dream.
