Storyline

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 KGF Vissers

Reborn in the Pumpkin Patch
24 October 2010 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Shannen Doherty's grandfather has died and left her the farm..... with a big mortgage that is about to come due. She is also undergoing great stress at work, where she has just been reassigned from a talk radio show on urban living to gardening, and her goal for the movie is to grow the world record pumpkin using her grandfather's seeds and win enough money to pay off that mortgage.

This pleasantly mild Hallmark channel romantic comedy is a very decently executed woman's movie, and the performances are certainly competent -- although I am a bit tired of the seemingly uniform direction of urban women as rather brittle and the writing does not permit any overwhelmingly interesting performance. Still, the scenery is pretty, the story while predictable, is nice, the jokes match the venue and the result is a very pleasant time-waster.
