Ferro Olivetti (Victor Alfieri) is a Californian self-made billionaire who has of late enjoyed the good life that has come with his wealth - which in turn meant that his life has become a bit meaningless. Then his father, on his death bed, insists that Ferro goes poor for one month to learn about the actual meaning of life and find true love in a woman who doesn't know about his money but loves him for himself. So Ferro flies over to New York City with hardly a dime to his name and is forced the first night on a park bench. The second day though he hits a stroke of luck when he's hit by a delivery truck, and the driver is so worked up by this that he gets Ferro a job as a chauffeur for rich realtor Curtis (Gerry Bamman). Sure, Curtis is an absolute asshole, but the job pays well and he can stay at Curtis's place. And he makes the acquaintance of one of Curtis's employees, Diana (Ione Skye), whom he's quick to fall in love with, and vice versa. But of course, he can't tell her who he really is. There is another problem, Curtis's wife (Meredith Patterson), his daughter (Sarah Steele) and even Curtis himself want to get intimate with him, and especially his daughter can't handle rejection well and has Ferro fired. And Diana leaves the company in solidarity, which leads to the two of them starting a business of their own. Then though, Ferro learns his company will be taken over by competitor Dunbar (Ron Silver) if he doesn't show up in court at a court-appointed time - and since he still can't tell Diana who he really is, he just leaves for California for a day without explanation, and when upon his return of all people Mrs Curtis shows up to welcome him warmly, Diana suspects the worst, and of course leaves before Ferro can explain. So can there be a happy ending for the two of them?


A very sweet romantic comedy that might not be half as profound as the heavy themes it tackles, but it's told in a charming way and flows very nicely, both on a narrative and a cinematic level, and manages to entertain the audience throughout without falling back on too many clichés while adding the occasional element to make even a cynic smile. In all, maybe no Citizen Kane, but good genre fun throughout for sure.
