Hallmark's Happy Wishes
25 August 2015 | by CalabossSee all my reviews

This Hallmark channel movie is for those that can handle overly-sentimental heartstring plucking and forced emotional treacle. It's clichéd and predictable, and once you've watched the first 15 minutes you already know what the last 15 will bring.

A judge calls on a retired, childless boating couple to take care of some problem boys "temporarily". (You can already see what's coming, can't you?). Well worn problems and complications ensue and are solved the way maudlin stories always are, with the power of "goodness" winning the day. None of the drama flows naturally. It all seems overly manufactured, forced, and tacked on. Although, in its favor, we are not smacked over the head with God in this one.

If these Hallmark movies really do it for you, you won't be disappointed here. The production values and acting are OK but not outstanding. Think of a Brady Bunch movie and that's the level of talent we're talking about here. Fine viewing for those that think they might win the lottery, or that life is all kittens and rainbows. For those of us with a more jaded, realistic view of life, this movie grates on the nerves a bit.

Personally, I don't like it when a movie director tells me, "You're going to feel warm and fuzzy. I insist!"
