Storyline

Kathleen's a hard-working single mother, who's saving to buy a house for herself and her daughter, Zoe. Sam's a businessman who has to pretend he has a family in order to close a deal with the mysterious Javier Del Campo. Sam owns the company that Kathleen works for, and as her boss, manages to convince her to help him out. But Del Campo is more than he seems, and it just might be Zoe who's making the real deal to get a new home for herself, her mother, and Sam. Written by Kathy Li

Quotes

Sam Field: What do I have to do to get you to forgive me?
Zoey Russell: [nonchalantly, with an innocent wide-eyed but slightly crafty "I've got you over a barrel here, don't I?" smile] A **pony** would be nice...
Sam Field: [disbelievingly] A **PONY** - -?
Zoey Russell: [nods and shruggily raises her eyebrows in a casual "Well, you **asked**" manner]
Sam Field: [with a short mirthless chuckle] You're one heck of a negotiator.
[pauses to think about this]
Sam Field: I could use you with Del Campo...!

Romantic Fluff But Fun
22 September 2012 | by WackyKackySee all my reviews

I liked this movie. Yes, it is formulaic. There is no doubt in your mind this is going to be a boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl. It is simply this: a feel good movie. And if you don't mind seeing a movie that has "been done before", slightly different plots, different actors, cute kids, at Christmas, and you love the moment the boy and girl realize they love each other, then get your mug of hot cocoa, grab some holiday presents you need to wrap, and watch something that doesn't require your rapt attention. I personally am a sucker for romance: corny, Disney, Classics, Jane Austen, Bronte, TV shows/ movies, etc, etc. As long as boy gets girl, happy ending, I'm in! It's okay to like movies like this: fluff entertainment. Every movie doesn't need to be deep.
