Storyline

Samantha, a young woman, frustrated by her unsuccessful blind dates, stumbles into a photo exhibition and sees and likes the photographer. She writes him an email. However, the email is intercepted by the photographer's son, who uses his father's identity to arrange a date for his widowed father, because he does not like his father's blonde manager and fears that she could become his stepmother. The son invites Samantha, still in his father's name. When she arrives, the identity theft is, of course, uncovered, and an embarrassed Samantha turns around and tries to go home. But their fate may still have some unexpected twists and turns in stock for them. Written by Hans-Georg Michna

Great movie
17 June 2018 | by jamanichSee all my reviews

Between the young actor playing Heaths unrelenting scheming son and Erin Krakow makes this movie with her amazing talent and beauty. This movie is a family must see. Any of the character are quite relatable to...yes even that superficial with character that kept being a thorn in Samantha's side.
