... light-hearted comedy with Frances McDormand and Amy Adams. Frances is Miss Pettigrew, a down on her luck governess. Amy Adams is Delysia Lafosse, a singer-actress using her "skills" to win a part in an upcoming movie by a famed producer. While doing so, Delysia is juggling other men like Nick, a nightclub owner, and Michael, her piano player who really loves her! Miss Pettigrew somehow lands a job as Delysia's social secretary to make sure Delysia gets the part. Over 24 hours, Miss Pettigrew is also called on to help an unfaithful fashion editor patch things up with her boyfriend, a lingerie designer.
Funny moments and a safe first date movie. But, would not put it on the list as a first choice when picking out a movie with your "potential significant other"! Go pick a romantic comedy, better yet a tear jerker.
