Flirting With Forty… Lifetime Original Movie

I will be using the DVR on the new Lifetime Channel movie Flirting With Forty tonight.  Seeing that I’m 40 something and like Heather Locklear, the star in Flirting With Forty, I really want to see this movie.  From,

Jackie is a divorced mother of two on the brink of her 40th birthday. When her kids go to stay with her ex for the holidays, Jackie decides to go on a tropical holiday. While on vacation, this divorcee winds up having a scorching romance with a much younger man — one who is seriously sexy too. It’s not long before Jackie discovers that life is just beginning for her at age 40. Starring Heather Locklear and Robert Buckley; it’s based on the hit book by (and the real-life adventures of) author Jane Porter.

With so much talk about Cougars (the term used to describe older women with younger men) these days, I’m sure many women will be able to relate to Locklear’s character.  You may also find Robert Buckley, who can most recently be seen on Lipstick Jungle with Brooke Shields, very pleasant on the eyes; he plays a sexy 20-something surf instructor who captures Jackie’s (Locklear) heart.

Since the fascination with older women with younger men (which is not new at all) I’m curious about two things:

Are you a cougar or would you ever consider being a cougar?  And…

Do you like the term cougar?

You can go to and see photos, take a quiz, see other celeb cougars and more.  It seems like a fun and entertaining way to spend a Saturday night. 

You can watch Flirting With Forty on the Lifetime channel December 6, 2008 at 9:00 pm EST.


  1. I really hope I am as hot as Heather Locklear when I am 40!

  2. @Bridget: Well I am in my 40s and I wish I was as hot as Heather Locklear. 😀

  3. Does anyone know how I can still see the movie? The exact events that I hear happened in the movie are happening to me right now! I’m over 40, met a guy slightly younger from Hawaii. He came to MN for the summer and when it was time to go home, he said you need to come to Hawaii, you belong there with me! Daughter not happy with me. I leave in 5 days!
