"I rented this because of Diane Lane. I have to admit I didn't think it would be too good and I got what I excepted.
Diane Lane plays a naive Texas girl who wins a national beauty contest. She realizes that it isn't all it's cracked up. She has to leave behind her loved ones and live up to the phony image. It doesn't take her long before she's disillusioned. It's like an after school special minus the cheese. Cloris Leachman is her mentor and she does her usual eccentric character well.
Diane is pretty here and does the best job she can with a weak cliche script. There is one serious scene with a blue eyeliner that was unintentionally hilarious. For an example of a young Lane the charming A Little Romance is a better recommendation."
