Storyline

Call him a city slicker. Call him a tenderfoot. But don't call him a member of the family--yet. Rising L.A. lawyer James White is going home for the holidays with his fiancée, Sadie Ryder, to finally meet her family in rural Pine Gap. After blundering through a bad first impression, James attempts to win over Sadie's lawyer-loathing father Karl by pretending to be a horse-riding, hay-baling, game-hunting, seasoned square dancer. But a pair of worn jeans and a ten-gallon hat don't make a cowboy, and it's going to take more than mere posturing to charm Mr. Ryder...in fact, it just may take a miracle.

What I Did For Love was beautiful
10 December 2006 | by wildbillfisherSee all my reviews

What I Did For Love has everything. I laughed and cried. My favorite parts are: 1. When Karl Ryder (James Gammon) tries to cheer up Sadie (Dorrie Barton) by giving her her mother's wedding dress. 2. When Travis (Jonny Acker) shows James (Jeremy London) how to start a fire without matches. 3. The rabid wolf part was very well done. 4. All the strikingly beautiful outdoor scenes with the rock formations and the snow capped peaks. 5. The hunting trip was hilarious. I liked all the Ryder family it was well casted, acted, and directed. I sure would like to see a sequel. Even the little dog was cute. The ending is lovingly warm, full of holiday spirit and family values. I think it's another Hallmark classic.
