A Good Love Story
25 April 2018 | by rutzelbSee all my reviews

Here's the thing: Josie (Jessica Rothe) is left at the Alter by Liam Page (Alex Roth). Now 8-years later we see that Liam Page is a big Country Music Star. He decides to return to his home town. Is it because he realizes he still loves Josie? Oh, no. He sees on TV that his best friend was killed in a car accident and that's why he goes. Now while there he, of course, runs into Josie and she wants nothing to do with him. (Of course, we don't believe that) But here's the other thing: he finds out he has a daughter named Billy (Abby Ryder Fortson) who is 7-yrs old. For once his head is clear. Let the games begin.

Now we know that Josie still loves Liam and Liam still loves Josie. Another thing: Billy figures out that Liam is her father and wants to get to know him. Josie isn't too sure about all this, but is willing to give it a try. So we know, in time, this will all work out. That is until something happens to Billy. Liam blames himself and goes away..... again.

Notables: John Benjamin Hickey as Pastor Brian, Liam's father; Tyler Riggs as Jake, Josie's brother who doesn't like Liam; Peter Cambor as Sam, Liam's manager, who convinces Liam to follow his heart; Travis Tritt as Walt, a singer in a bar Liam goes to.

It was surprising to hear Billy talk like she was wise beyond her years, but that is what we have and, actually, she was pretty good. And we see that she has a musical talent no one knew about.

The acting all around is very good as was the music especially the last song. This is slow paced, but I think that was needed. (Hey, you can't rush these things)

We are all waiting for the reason Liam left Josie at the Alter. And yes, it's kind of a stretch but it is what we have.

This is a very good love story , but I did notice one thing, one GLARING thing: at no time did Liam or Jose say, "I love you." We just have to read into it, and I am sure we will. (Yes, we will) (7/10)

Violence: No. Sex: No. Nudity: No. Humor: Yes. Language: No. Rating: B
