Unsure exactly why, he feels compelled to return to Glenville for the first time since he left eleven years ago. He finds that the town has not changed at all...Written by
This was a sweet, bit of nothing movie that won't leave any lasting marks about a journalist who quits his job after publishing an unconfirmed article about political corruption that causes the politician in question to commit suicide. "Richard" has a penchant for running away from his problems and this latest turn sees him returning to his hometown after an 11 year absence.
He is immediately hired back at his old job at the local paper where he meets a creepy, stalker dude who turns out to be his future self. Future Richard (AKA Dick) is played by Richard Thomas and the two actors couldn't look more different, but whatever, its a Lifetime movie. Anyways before long Richard also runs into his high school sweetheart and realizes the spark is still there despite her beaning him in the head with a frozen chicken and being engaged to the town Doctor (yawn).
There are some fun twists and turns as future "Dick" remains mysterious and tries to get Richard to turn his life around, stop running away and get the girl because, well, he's been there and knows how it will turn out if he doesn't. There's also a weak sub story regarding preserving the small town image and not allowing big business "Sir Save-A-Lot" in.
A couple things: Richard wears the same leather jacket/clothes for the entire movie, as do most of the cast. His wife also doesn't age in the 20 year gap we are shown. Duncan B.C plays small-town "Glenville" USA. 12/15/14
