Storyline

Small town high-school lovers Michael Foster and Grace Holland née Anderson lost sight after choosing separate careers. Each's marriage to another failed in a few years, but Grace has a perfect son, Scott Holland, who realizes her steady date, terribly nice accountant Phillip Walsh, just isn't a romantic match. Just before their high-school reunion, Michael's employer sends him and assistant-buddy James Mitchell to that town to supervise the chain's latest hotel being decorated, as turns out by Grace's firm. James falls in love with Grace's assistant-confident Lindsay Taylor. The old lovers keep denying the obvious, but get incessant help from Michael's in-laws, Scott and the assistants, despite Grace's mother efforts to make her marry Philip, who gracefully prepares to give way to true love.

What happens when past and present collide
29 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's Saturday evening of Memorial Day weekend, and there's "nothing" on TV, so I'm filling up on Hallmark movies. Most Hallmark movies, in my experience, fall into the 7-8 range (on a scale of 10), i.e., above average. This is the first one I recall ever having rated below average.

The summary line I've supplied for this review is not my own; it's a line from the movie, and it could well have been the tag line, if there were one. Finally, the one previous review here summarizes the plot sufficiently that I can skip revisiting that.

So much for background.

My first problem with this film was seemingly incompatible casting. I like Rena Sofer, but I wouldn't say that she's in my top tier of favorites. And up to now, I've never been all that impressed with Dean McDermott; but then, this is the first time I've seen him in a lead role. Therefore, I had to try hard to wipe away everything I'd ever thought about him, and to see him through fresh eyes. Their pairing, therefore, as the lead romantic couple, seemed rather incongruous, as "Philip" appeared to be a much better match for "Grace" than did "Michael".

Secondly, the whole execution seemed rather superficial, even for a "formula" film. The best thing about the script is its self-realization that some of the characters are behaving like teenagers, not adults. Unfortunately, this observation inadvertently applies to some of the actors as well.

Supporting players worth seeing in their roles here include the ever-reliable Barbara Eden, Jonathan Chase and, particularly, Hillary Tuck. And by the end, I even warmed up a bit to the loving leads.
