Very cute romance!
28 May 2004 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I wanted to see this movie because I'd read the book by Kristin Gabriel, and I'd liked it very much. While this movie adaptation was different in more than a few ways from the book, it had a similar sense of humor to it and I really quite liked it.

The two main leads (Kim Huffman and Alex Carter) were both well cast in this movie. Huffman plays a pretty caterer with a wholesome but lovely "girl next door" look to her. She's very likable and doesn't have that "self conscious of her beauty" attitude about her. She seemed very natural.

At first you think that Alex Carter is going to be playing one of those somewhat surly "brooding serious cop" types (like we haven't seen enough of *those* types), but instead his character has this dry wit and a smile (when he chooses to show it) that is dazzling. Both these actors make a great couple on screen!

The plot is kind of weak in some ways, but who cares? It's cute. It's funny. It isn't one of those dreary "relationship" movies where the characters don't have enough to do. This tale is full of action and humor. I laughed out loud quite a few times!

Now, granted, this is not up there with the great romantic comedies of all time. But of all the TV-movies based on a Harlequin Romance that I've seen, this is by *far* the best. If you didn't know it was based on a romantic novel, you might not even guess it. It's got action, adventure, mystery, the whole enchilada! And a cast full of eccentric and entertaining characters. Very enjoyable!
