The movie opens with Sylvia who works as a weather reporter for the Seattle Daily Morning Show. After discovering her boyfriend, the show’s anchor, has been cheating on her with his co-host, Sylvia flips out in an angry rant during a live broadcast. This outburst results in the loss of her job.
Forced to live with her immature, younger brother, Walt, while trying to get back on her feet, Sylvia, aka “Sassy Weather Girl,” soon discovers the cost of her reckless actions to her career as she is unable to find anyone in television willing to hire her. At the same time, her brother’s best friend, Byron, has taken an interest in her. They begin a casual, no-strings-attached sexual relationship, only to eventually fall in love with each other.
The plot of this story is very simple, so simple in fact that it becomes boring and almost painful to watch as the actors overcompensate for the poorly written dialogue and formulaic directing. Their attempts to make the story more engaging fall short, especially considering that the romantic relationship seemed less than believable due to the incompatibility in the developmental stages of each character. With not much to commend the movie apart from a couple laugh-out-loud moments and the mostly supportive, sometimes dysfunctional brother-sister relationship between Sylvia and Walt, extreme caution is advised due to the strong Romantic worldview, foul language, and implied fornication. WEATHER GIRL also sends the message that people can “become better” by overcoming their own “deficiencies” without God’s help. Nothing could be further from the truth that rests in relying on Jesus Christ, the Word of God who saves us from sin, justifies us and sanctifies us for the good works that God has appointed us to do.

Their attempts to make the story more engaging fall short. Apart from a couple of laugh-out-loud moments, extreme caution is advised for WEATHER GIRL. This is due to its strong Romantic worldview, plenty of R-rated foul language, scenes of implied fornication, and the message that people can “become better” by overcoming their own “deficiencies” without God’s help.
