Falling in love is never a smooth ride, as a pair of mismatched young lovebirds are about to find out. When a stuck elevator brings a free-spirited woman and an uptight lawyer together, they are faced with the reality that their separate worlds might be too different for their relationship to get off of the ground floor. "Mean Girls" star Lacey Chabert and Ryan Merriman ("Final Destination 3," "Taken"), winner of five Young Artist Awards, pair up to discover what happens when opposites attract in "Elevator Girl," a Hallmark Channel HD Original Movie World Premiere, Saturday, February 13 (9p.m. ET/PT, 8C) .

Workaholic attorney Jonathan MacIntyre (Merriman) is too busy at the firm to make time for himself or any personal life. But when he gets trapped in a stalled elevator with carefree, eccentric Liberty Taylor (Chabert), they discover that opposites really do attract. The sparks are there, but after Jonathan finds out that Liberty is on a career path consisting of only odd jobs and unfinished degrees, he grows conflicted over whether to follow his heart or settle down with a professional woman who is more like himself. It takes his motherly secretary, Rosemary (Patty McCormick, "Frost/Nixon") to intervene as matchmaker to set the two up for a second chance.

After a successful first date, Jonathan and Libby start to fall for each other, but the two can't help but seem mismatched as Libby's disorganized creativity clashes with Jonathan's rigid professionalism. Their less-than-supportive friends, Tessa (Hedy Burress, "He's Just Not That Into You") and Nick (Jonathan Bennett, "Mean Girls") are all-too-eager to notice this, and try to convince the two that their relationship won't last. Eventually, Libby and Jonathan butt heads over their different lifestyles, and ultimately must decide whether their love can rise above their differences.

"Elevator Girl" is an LG Films production in association with Larry Levinson Productions. Larry Levinson is the executive producer. Randy Pope and Amanda Phillips are the co-executive producers, and Lincoln Lageson and Erik Heiberg are the producers. Bradford May directed from a script by Jennifer R. Notas.
