Storyline

Josie Mayfield, a no-nonsense businesswoman working at her father's prosperous cookware company, thinks her boyfriend Richard is the perfect man - handsome, successful and driven. The problem is that Josie's parents, Joseph and Claire, do not agree. When Josie meets up with Maxwell, an underachieving, old high school flame (who still has a crush on Josie), Richard dreams up a plan to make himself look good to Josie's parents: Maxwell will be Josie's date at Joseph and Claire's upcoming anniversary party. When Joseph and Claire see Josie with a "loser," they'll give anything to have Richard back in the picture. At least, that's the plan. Over the anniversary party weekend, Maxwell stays with Josie as a guest in the Mayfield home, horrifying Joseph and Claire with his unsophisticated ways. Though things are rough and rocky at first, Maxwell soon begins to win over Joseph and Clair and they start to appreciate his carefree and spontaneous lifestyle. Maxwell's presence even helps Josie's ... Written by The Hallmark Channel

If you can get past the stupidity....
14 November 2017 | by LuLuBelleKySee all my reviews

I've always felt Paul Campbel has been dealt the short end of the stick when it comes to good roles in Hallmark movies. The character he plays best is in Once Upon a Christmas. Finally he's not a nerd or a loser. He actually is quite handsome as a hard working bachelor.

This movie is painful to watch.... saccharine sweet, and ridiculously stupid story line. Not everyone needs plots spelled out in such detail you get sick of the movie in the first 15 minutes.
