Seattle radio talk-show host Emma Silver inherits grandpa Walt's pumpkin farm in Valleyville. She didn't plan to respect his last will, which was to run the farm, but loses her job and is forced to accept hosting a new 'green' program. In order to keep it, she must pay off a $75,000 mortgage. To that end, she hopes to win the pumpkin growing contest using grandpa's winning seed line and cultivation log. Neighbor Seth Cullen, the town's handyman (and actually a Stanford engineering graduate), has a hard time convincing her they need to team up. Written by
A sweet story with gorgeous scenery, improbable events
Emma Silver (Shannen Doherty) is an afternoon radio host with a nice following in the Seattle area. One day, however, bad news arrives. Her grandfather, Emma's closest living relative, has died. Traveling to the Washington State countryside to his pumpkin farm, for the funeral, she is overcome with emotion. After the services, his lawyer informs her that she has inherited the farm but, due to her grandmother's long illness years before, the estate is heavily mortgaged. Sadly, Emma may not have the money to keep it afloat. Then, back in Seattle, the young lady gets another jolt. Her general manager has been fired and the new one is taking Emma out of her usual program and placing her in a new show that is about growing plants. As Em tells this GM about her pumpkin farm, the show evolves into a "report from the field" and the town's annual Largest Pumpkin Contest. Since her grandpa left Emma his precious seeds and the prize money could help save the farm, the life changes seem to be working out. However, another neighbor, Seth (Kavan Smith) will also be trying to grab the monetary winnings for his own aspirations. Also, since Emma and Seth are both single, will the pumpkin competition prevent a love story from happening? This is a sweet, light romance with nice stars and a family friendly presentation. The rural Washington scenery is one of the best things the film has going for it, too, being very lovely. However, the costume designer makes some strange choices, with Emma's funeral dress resembling more of the cocktail variety and Doherty sporting other rather bizarre outfits, too. Script and direction are acceptable but the storyline does have some implausible aspects as well, from radio station matters to farming. Nevertheless, all fans of romantic comedy or drama will find this a nice choice for an evening's view.
