Perabo plays a small town girl named Violet Sanford who moves to New York City to become a songwriter. This romantic comedy film is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. While waiting on her big break and attempting to get over her stage fright, she takes on a job as a bartender and meets her boyfriend Kevin O’Donnell played by Adam Garcia. Movie critic Roger Ebert describes her:
So fetching she sort of stops the clock. She has one of those friendly Julia Roberts smiles, good comic timing, ease and confidence on the screen.
