A fun flick!
4 November 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't get the bad reviews here. If anyone tunes in to the Hallmark Channel looking for Oscar material, they're nuts. Most are produced by Larry Levinson and follow the same basic plot. Geez, even my husband recognizes this and asks when did the boy get the girl or vice versa. That said, I love the escapism that Hallmark movies provide, and thoroughly enjoy them. Face it; most of the plots are rip offs of other theatrical releases. That said, this movie is likely the most original, entertaining, and funny plot line I've seen out of Hallmark for a long time.

Just sit back and ignore the negative; enjoy a little feel-good laughter!
