“Money or not that’s no excuse to behave that way.”

Synopsis: Addison gets roped into traveling overseas with her brother and his picky billionaire boss. It’s a world she doesn’t particularly care for, but she tries her hardest to help if only to save her brother’s job.

Beauty and the Beast meet The Devil Wears Prada and Pretty Woman. Addison Burke (Sashleigha Hightower) is an Office Manager for a medical practice. Very organized, professional, and outspoken. However, her brother Pete (Tanner Gillman), on the other hand, is always in panic mode afraid of losing his position while working for a business-driven CEO, Justin Ross (Chris Reid), who is more concerned with success and winning than the harsh realities of those he considers ‘beneath’ him. Or even recognizing there is more to life than just what exists in his own little world.

Throw these three together in a corporate mix the portfolio skies might not be so bright. Ironically, after Addison’s brother winds up in an electric scooter bike accident, and breaks his leg, that’s exactly what happened. In pursuit of a business deal with Katrina Sawyer (Cathy Ford), they end up going to Justin’s compound in St. Martin where Pete found out Katrina was going to be on a 2-week vacation there with her daughter Annie (Brooklyn Brough).

And after Jason says too many negative things about her brother one time too many—Unlike Pete who is afraid of Justin, Addison has no qualms telling him like it is whether he likes it or not. And she told him just like it was. After which her brother tried to convince her to keep her head down and not stir up the corporate seas to which she replies, “Money or not that’s no excuse to behave that way.”

Because of a previous business deal with Justin, Katrina doesn’t want anything to do with him. He backed out of his word leaving her holding the bag losing credibility and her job. She managed to get hired by another firm, but the numbers are not looking very promising for her company or her position. However, she has an energy source that could revolutionize the industry and Justin was hoping to get in on this ground-floor opportunity. But somehow, Addison manages to forge a relationship not only with Katrina but with her daughter Annie as well. This proves to be more complex than Justin could predict. And there is also another relationship on the horizon that catches Justin by surprise.

Will Justin close his deal with Katrina? Will Pete lose his position? And finally, will Addison’s perspective change Justin’s attitude? You will just have to watch the movie to find out!

The storyline is a composition of all three aforementioned films with some unexpected elemental twists and modifications that prove interesting and intriguing. The actors carried their roles rather swimmingly but it was Addison who was the lifesaver that kept things afloat for this simple storyline.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

This is a delightful family film everyone can watch which drives home the scripture For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? (Mark 8:36 NKJV) A valuable lesson that Justin has to learn. Also noteworthy is sometimes when we stand for right we may feel like we are standing alone, but in that stand, God is setting the standards for all to see. There are many good life lessons everyone in the family can walk away with.
