Not very convincing
9 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

It is a remake, so it's nothing new by default. However, if we pretend that it wasn't a remake, it would still be nothing new. A story about an unlikely couple experiencing trials and tribulations en route to some sort of resolution is not a novel approach to romance.

The acting was OK, but not spectacular. Maybe the lead characters did not quite fit the actors or maybe it was something else, but I just did not find them entirely convincing. As a matter of fact, I could not really care less what the final outcome of the story would be and I am the kind of person who watches Christmas Hallmark rom coms.

Granted, the movie does have a message, which is why I am not giving it just one out of ten. However, the message is conveyed in a fairly clumsy manner, borderline ridiculous.
