very rushed, very confusing ... did I miss something?
Hallmark makes some very good holiday movies, most with a strong moral and/or religious undertones ... but this one had me very confused. Granted I came into it about mid-way through, but I see an old guy fooling around with a younger girl ... she shows up in what could be a compromising clutch between him and his "still" wife in his motel room ... basic G-rated Hallmark fashion, the door is open and everything is above board ... she is confused but understanding and allows it. As someone else said "yeah, right, no." We're supposed to feel sorry for this guy who is getting a divorce so he can go live in the Bahamas with a girl half his age ... he doles out advice to the people around and supposedly blind that he is not taking it himself. Pacing is confusing and the script rushes toward a typical Hallmark ending, dumping plot points along the way to be discarded. The girlfriend is there, then bows out gracefully, or is sucked up by aliens, you never really know. A church service is thrown in at the end, which really makes no sense ... the daughter just had a traumatic birth delivery and she is all grins and smiles days later at a church service? Highly doubtful. I love Hallmark, but this one was a mess and made no sense. Actors were great but the writing was terrible. We watched it because it was part of the stream of holiday movies on the cable channel, but I would not look it up again in the future.
