Storyline

Plus sized and 30 years old, LEXIE IVY is a feisty Bed and Breakfast owner who desperately needs a date to her sisters wedding. In small town Nova Scotia, thats no easy task, especially when the most eligible bachelor is JOSS, the rough handyman fixing her roof. When ADRIAN, a handsome and charming guest, arrives and seems to take an interest in Lexie, she thinks all her problems are solved. But she misreads the situation and is soon reeling, believing her romantic dream has slipped away, maybe forever. After a series of hilarious mishaps and a reality check or two, Lexie opens her heart and eyes to see that love may be a lot closer than she thought. Written by Anonymous

Cliché plot has warmth and sweetness
3 January 2016 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Lexie is the bounciest and most interesting of three Nova Scotian sisters, but also overweight and unlucky in love. Not so much in sex; but usually that happens when she's drunk. Her sisters and mother are strongly supportive of her despite their relatively conformist lives. The interactions between the sisters are loving and real. Also, Lexie worships her father, and no man she encounters lives up to him. So while she runs her own business and is otherwise a happy if mate-less singleton, she continues to dream of the man who will give her all that her father has. At the opening of the film, there is a handyman whom Lexie tolerates, then a dreamboat customer with whom she rapturously falls in lurve. Plot device: she needs a date for her sister's wedding. Yeah, we've seen it before ad nauseum, but the energy and verve Melissa Bergland brings to the role, and the supporting cast's capable acting, keep the film going. There are also some surprise plot turns involving Lexie's family, hence 'relative' happiness. Just the thing for a dark winter's day, or in the Kiwi world, a rainy summer one.
