Girl in Progress

Harried single mom Grace (Eva Mendes, Hitch) tries to make a living as a waitress, raise her teenage daughter and have an affair with a handsome (married) gynecologist (Matthew Modine, Vision Quest). Meanwhile, her precocious offspring (Cierra Ramirez, "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody") tries to pattern her life around a clichéd coming-of-age story she's reading in English class. The standard dramedy formula attempts to win points for self-referential humor, but follows an awfully familiar pattern. 90 minutes PG-13.
