A lonely, down-on-her-luck waitress meets a handsome, quirky jewelry store clerk and thinks that maybe, finally, she's met Mr. Right. The more Molly (Alexis Bledel) gets to know Gus (Zachary Levi), the more she's intrigued by him. But she's also mystified. Gus is absent-minded, preoccupied. Is he hiding something? The short answer is: yes. He's reluctant to share with her that since suffering a brain aneurysm, he's totally lost his short-term memory. Every day is a brand new day, his life starts anew. Every day he sees Molly he struggles to remember who she is and what she represents. Every day, he has to fall in love with her all over again. Written by
Hallmark Hall of Fame
I'm not generally one to like these Hallmark movies. My mom watches them all the time and usually I think they're stupid. But this one actually caught my attention enough that I stopped doing homework to it down and watch it.
I think it was the characters. Obviously Alexis Bledel is pretty and talented and this character could easily be a "grown up" Rory, however the writing was good enough that it kept her from sinking into that familiar role too much. She was still quirky weird, but in an endearing way that made me care about the character. The guy, who I've never seen before in anything, was convincing enough as his character, Gus.
This was an interesting take on a familiar formula and played out as more of a drama than anything. To be honest, I'm not sure why I liked this movie so much. But I recommend it in any case since it's just a feel-good all around movie.
