The San Francisco Sun is a newspaper owned by a media conglomerate. Tom Lane writes a column for the Sun and his face is on a lot of billboards. Liz Madison works for a community newspaper, the Marin County Voice. She writes an advice column called Dear Madison. Tom Lane is hoping to get his own television program and shoot a pilot. On November 2, the employees of the Voice learn that the owner of the Sun has bought their paper. He intends to stop publication of the voice to boost his bottom line. Tom and Liz start a column war, which raises reading numbers for the Voice.
I wish this movie were a little less predictable. More subtlety is needed so I don’t see right away most of what is going to happen. I would like to have some surprises! The scenes of San Francisco and Marin are nice. 3* (This movie is OK)
