Sobieski plays a small town country girl who is very happy with her small town country boyfriend, Jasper. At least, she thinks she is - until a rich kid from a nearby school comes screaming into town in his expensive new car. He and Jasper exchange insults, and decide to settle their disagreement by racing their cars at a breakneck speed. Soon enough, they crash into a gas station, and while no one is hurt, the ensuing explosion and fire burn down a diner.
The two mad drivers are sentenced to help rebuild the diner. Great idea - make two guys who dislike each other work together. It's no surprise they soon get into a fight.
Then Sobieski falls for the rich kid, and can't decide who she likes better. The two fight for her attention. Each tries to convince Sobieski that he's the right guy for her.
What I don't understand is why neither guy is upset that Sobieski is a two-timing cheat. All they do is practically beg for her attention. They don't even mind that she cheats on them and can't make up her mind!
Okay, plot spoiler ahead. In the midst of this love triangle, Sobieski gets terminal cancer. I think the writers decided to kill off her character because they were running out of material and couldn't decide how to wrap it up. They figured it would be easier to settle the relationship issue if she was dying.
Here On Earth is boring and predictable. And although I'm not big on happy endings, the end of Here on Earth didn't impress me either.
