  • A wacky TV weatherman loses his job after taking off yet another weekend -- after all, he figures, L.A. weather never changes, does it? And his personal life is a mess too, because his relationship with his long-time girlfriend has gone kaput. Everything looks pretty dismal, when he unexpectedly meets a British journalist on assignment in L.A. and falls instantly in love. He fears he has no chance with her, though, and in desperation he starts a relationship with a ditzy young shopgirl who introduces him to the wonders of rollerskating and colonics. All the while he pines away for the journalist. Then, while driving down the L.A. freeways, he suddenly realizes that one of the highway signs is trying to communicate with him. He stops to read the messages, takes a risk, and trusts in them to save his life.

    Entertainment Weekly

    "...Decent, intelligent, and sweet..."
    New York Times

    "...L.A. Story has a completely original spirit. It's wiggy yet deeply, helplessly romantic....The imagery has a spin to it, as if we too were being enswooned by it all..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "...A film which suffuses the world's most plastic city with a sense of wonder, giving this underrated feelgood comedy an irresistible glow..."
    Total Film

    "[A] thoughtful comedy about life and love in the city of angels."
    Widescreen Review

    4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] sweet and surreal romantic comedy..."
