Maxwell Tyler is an overworked single artist in the need for a new love and a new life.
21 March 2005 | by bethlaubenthalSee all my reviews

Maxwell Tyler is an overworked single artist. His girls, Emily and Tess, see how much he has changed since their mother died. The girls are on a mission to help their father find true love again. They paint a billboard to advertise their dad. It makes the news. Their father is not all that happy about it. Maxwell's agent is a shady character. Maxwell's agent tries everything to discourage potential relationships between Maxwell and other women. Emily and Tess soon catch on to that. Although I don't watch many Mary-Kate and Ashley movies, I really liked this one. Emily and Tess have a sense of duty to their father, to help him regain a part of his life that was destroyed when his first wife died. It is a touching story with a surprising ending. This movie is aimed at the younger generation of viewers. However, I would recommend it to anyone.
