This likeable TV Movie stars the ever-gorgeous HEATHER LOCKLEAR, although yes, she is nearer 50 in real life, than here in her film character's age of 40, BUT, Heather is an actress after all, just playing a part - that being said, she does still look as good as she did in her 'Dynasty' & 'Melrose Place' heydays - so much in fact she could easily pass for a woman in her late 30's, so I think she's perfectly cast here as Jackie Laurens, a recent divorcee & mother of two, whom decides to spend her Christmas holiday alone in Hawaii for her impending 40th birthday.
Once at her tropical paradise, she meets hottie Kyle Hamilton (Robert Buckley), a 20something surf-instructor & the pair embark on a holiday fling...which turns into a real romance, much to Jackie's surprise.
Flirting With Forty is a worthy, feel-good romantic drama that benefits from it's stunning Hawaiian back-drop, along with good performances from the two leads. Definately a solid choice for Locklear's 'die-hard' fans anyway (ahem a bit like me lol) - they'll enjoy it as it's basically the perfect vehicle for the under-rated blonde 'yummy-mummy'...
...Heather be thy name indeed...! hehe
