A boy and a girl fall in love during summer camp and promise to stay in touch, but they don't. Fifteen years later they meet again in the same camp under very different circumstances. What will happen to the camp and will they try again?
After several nasty dating surprises, instantaneous HR executive Sarah compiles a 'complete' list of potential partner requirements. After handsome pediatrician and perfect gentleman Erik meets all criteria and charms her family, wedding plans are soon in the making. Yet one impish voice nags at her, that of LA "barista" Fred, who swears by surprising his customers and usually succeeds. Fred's reproach her drawings show talent but no ambition inspires her to try a fresh style, and she enters him for a national competition, while Erik smoothly keeps doing everything 'too' right.

Cute, light and easily watchable - it made me smile
The story here is cute, light and easily watchable, which was exactly what I was looking for when I put it on. David Sutcliffe is charming and Jennifer Esposito does a great job with her role as well. Sure it's also a bit silly at times, predictable and mindless but still totally enjoyable and I'll admit brought a smile to my face.
The story follows Esposito as an HR executive and perfectionist who makes a (comprehensive) list of the qualities she's looking for in a mate and soon hooks up with the seemingly ideal guy (good looking, child, animal loving Doctor) in the meantime she also finds herself drawn to the kooky barista from her local coffee shop who encourages her to loosen up.
On the downside this was draggy in parts due to the fact that there isn't much story to speak of and they fill it up with drawn out barista competitions & 70's dance offs. I also got tired of all the split screen shots, sometimes up to 4 at a time, which I don't usually even notice but they were used so much here it started to drive me crazy.
Wish List has been put on by Faith & Family and Hallmark entertainment so there are a couple of bible verses randomly thrown in which did feel out of tune with the movie. Guess there was a faith quota? 12/20/15
