Hallmark Movie Channel
Hallmark channel movies all have a certain level of cheesiness and implausibility. But they are usually fun to watch with decent leads. And I did read this book, long ago, and thought it was not great, but had some good parts. Like pretty much any book I've read by Mary Higgins Clark. But this movie had more than its share of corny dialog even for a Hallmark movie. That wouldn't have been so bad though, if there was any chemistry at all between the leads. I didn't get the sense that they even like being in the same room together, let alone that they were happily married. And Cameron Mathison was not believable at all as a former vice president or former secretary of state or former governor or former whatever else he was. Unless it was a former personal trainer at a gym or former salesman at Best Buy. The opening scene of the movie is so terrible it's almost painful to watch. The rest is slightly better, but not by a lot. And there were way too many lingering close-up shots of Rachel Blanchard making faces... what I guess was supposed to be "emoting." I was actually looking forward to this movie, despite the fact that every time Cameron Mathison said that My Gal Sunday line in the ads it made me cringe. But this wasn't even decent plot-wise. I'd say more about that but I honestly don't even remember what the plot was. Kidnapping the parents of the leads to make them let someone out of prison I think. It was that dull.
