Truly Awful
5 February 2015 | by brown_steveSee all my reviews

A neat idea betrayed by a script that manipulates the characters like puppets. These Hallmark romances have a predictable arc, but there's usually a certain measure of believability in the complications that block culmination of the romance and in the emotional and intellectual competence of the contending not-yet-betrothed-partners.

The leading woman-puppet, despite being a book, film and theatre critic is given the emotional maturity of a middle school girl, and the the pseudonymous runaway-best-selling romance novelist child of movie star parents leading man-puppet is awarded the emotional competence of a high schooler with the most crippling case of communicative lockjaw I've ever seen.

Only the night before I'd seen another Hallmark movie, sweet and maybe a little sappy, but still lovely, "Away and Back."
