Just the Way You Are (2015)
I'm a fan of Candace Cameron Bure and all her Hallmark movies, which is why I chose to watch this movie. Candace has that cute, bubbly personality that works really well in the Hallmark feel good movies because you just always want to like her; you can't help it.
The problem with this movie is that I just didn't get the feel good part of it, and I didn't buy the two main characters as a couple. They didn't have any chemistry and just didn't seem like a good fit, even from that very first scene.
The movie had the potential, but I think it was just missing that something to tie it all together. It was a bunch of random scenes that didn't work together as a whole.
SPOILER: I thought the blind date idea was cute, but do you really have to buy your husband a helicopter ride before he falls in love with you again? I enjoyed the ending, but like I said earlier... there just wasn't a lot of chemistry with the leading lady and her leading man. He was somewhat likable, but nothing made you think that they should be together. It wasn't a good fit. That kept me from enjoying it more. Maybe if the opening was more than a couple minutes and you actually had a chance to see them with chemistry as a young couple, the whole thing might have worked a little better, for me at least.
Bad acting, empty plot, just plain bad
I'm surprised this movie has such a high rating (a 7.1,when we watched). I really wanted to like it. The acting was bad (with Ma-Ma being the worst), and the plot was pretty empty. The lead character sounded as if he was trying to sound like Clint Eastwood. The best thing about the movie was the set. Beyond that, it was as if a group of 12 year olds directed and produced the movie. Unlike the original, there's nothing very futuristic about it. Not much to say...I hated it. Now that I think about it, I'm not sure it deserved the 2 stars I gave it. If you read this and haven't watched the original movie, check it out...much better.
