Cute movie
27 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jane Seymour is absolutely terrific in this movie, and plays her character near-perfect. The humor she brings to this role is such fun, not to mention a cute touch of paranoia regarding stains and the like. I am watching "Dear Prudence" as I write this comment by the way. The young actor playing Prudence's lab guy is pretty good, and definitely brings his own brand of humor to a role that otherwise would be a little drab. Usually I'm very good at picking out 'who did it' within 5 minutes of a movie, but this one does have me stumped at the moment, which adds to my interest in watching "Prudence" to its conclusion. Hopefully Hallmark will produce additional episodes of "Prudence" with Jane Seymour in the lead role.
