Storyline

After several nasty dating surprises, instantaneous HR executive Sarah compiles a 'complete' list of potential partner requirements. After handsome pediatrician and perfect gentleman Erik meets all criteria and charms her family, wedding plans are soon in the making. Yet one impish voice nags at her, that of LA "barista" Fred, who swears by surprising his customers and usually succeeds. Fred's reproach her drawings show talent but no ambition inspires her to try a fresh style, and she enters him for a national competition, while Erik smoothly keeps doing everything 'too' right.

How Did They Get This Cast?
16 February 2020 | by alyzuSee all my reviews

Another example of a good cast and a terrible script. I really like Jennifer Esposito, and I'd watch Diane Venora read the phone book, but this tried my patience. Once again we have the stereotypical woman with a Type A personality who "needs to be taken down a few notches". Of course, she falls in love with a guy who himself is controlling, defensive, rude, and downright mean. Oh, and has stalker tendencies. Honestly, she's better off alone. (One caveat: As a tall woman married to a shorter man, I did appreciate the wedding scene. 😊)
