The City That Never Sleeps is about to meet the girl that doesn’t quit. Jessica Simpson stars as Katie Gregerstitch, a small-town Oklahoma beauty who’s come to New York to visit her long-time boyfriend. But after finding him in the arms of another woman, Katie decides to lose her cheating man and to find herself. With the help of two scheming co-workers (Andy Dick and Penelope Ann Miller), she lands a job at a top construction firm where she meets and falls for a great guy (Luke Wilson) with an even greater secret. Now, nothing is going to stop this go-getter from getting exactly what her heart desires in the romantic comedy that proves you can’t keep a bright, beautiful down-home girl down. Also starring Willie Nelson.
TRIVIA & FACTS
– The movie became a hit in Ukraine grossing more than $253,000 in the opening weekend.
– This film was intended as a wide theatrical release; however, the film tested poorly and studio executives then considered going direct to DVD as a result. Ultimately the studio decided to give it a limited theatrical release in Texas (the home state of Jessica Simpson and Luke Wilson) in an attempt to generate interest and more accurately assess the film’s box-office potential. After the film grossed only $1190.00 on eight screens, the studio decided not to expand the limited theatrical release any further.
– The second movie Jessica Simpson and Willie Nelson have been in together.
