I Love Trouble (film) Sabrina Peterson, a cub reporter on a Chicago newspaper, has a resourcefulness and quick wit matched only by her competitive spirit, which spells trouble for seasoned columnist-turned-novelist Peter Brackett who works for a rival paper. They try to outwit and outscoop each other when they are both sent to cover a train wreck, where they unearth evidence of corruption and murder. Running into each other everywhere they turn, they nearly get themselves killed scrambling for the ultimate front-page story. Along the way, they gain new respect, and love, for each other.
