Janetta's a snobby fashionista who thinks Bob's a gnocchi—a pale, doughy nerd.
When they travel to Rome together, what could possibly go wrong?
Janetta's life has been bouncing along the gutter like a Brunswick bowling ball after a series of disastrous relationships. When her girl's getaway is abruptly cancelled, she is left with nothing. No vacation. No fun. No men.
Bob is headed to Rome to sell his invention to an Italian businessman with his girlfriend, who is fluent in Italian. When she suddenly dumps him, he is left without a translator or a clue as to how to conduct business in Rome.
Bob reluctantly arrives at Janetta's salon, Bella Figura, which means "beautiful figure," in Italian, for the complete makeover his girlfriend had scheduled for them prior to their breakup. When he balks at receiving a new hairstyle, facial, and spray tan, Janetta explains to him that Italians value a bella figura, presenting a beautiful appearance, and that he will need a complete makeover if he has any hope of succeeding in Rome.
Asked how she knows all this, Janetta reveals that her parents were born in Rome, that she has been there many times, and that she speaks fluent Italian. When he also learns that she has two weeks off, he presents her with an offer she can't refuse: He will pay her to accompany him to Rome to serve as his translator.
Once in the Eternal City, her reckless ways ignite a catastrophe, and she comes to realize that there is more depth to Bob than she'd assumed, and that she is the one who is all style and no substance.
Can Janetta makeover her life? Can she find amore in Rome?
