Originally meant for a theatrical release, this Lindsay Lohan vehicle winds up on TV instead. Well, it's just another ill-fitting piece in the puzzle that is her stalled, sloppy career. She's a secretary who fakes pregnancy to avoid getting fired. There are no real laughs, even with Cheryl Hines as her office buddy. As usual, you can't help being struck by the contrast of Lohan's auburn, sharp-featured beauty—she's like an enchanted fox—and her air of being peeved at everyone in sight.
