With big plans to leave their small Iowan town, teenage lovers Annie (Jill Wagner) and Ben (Colin Egglesfield) elope. Their big city plans are halted, though, when Annie's parents have the marriage annulled, and Annie stays behind in Iowa to help her family. Fifteen years later, when Annie is engaged in Iowa and Ben is engaged in New York, they discover that their annulment was never finalized. Annie and Ben reunite to make their divorce legal, but find themselves reminiscing about what could have been if they had stayed together. As romantic feelings resurface, Annie and Ben must decide if their past love could also be their destined future. Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

Did You Know?


The character name for the chauffeur, Hector (portrayed by Bill Dow), is a reference to the chauffeur character in The Princess Diaries (2001), named Joe, but portrayed by Hector Elizondo, Other than the obvious commonality of both characters being chauffeurs; both characters are also fully bald on top; both are later middle age; both drive black Lincoln Town Car limousines; both are fiercely loyal with clear affection for both their employer and their fish out of water new female charge; both generally only speak in response to a question or otherwise being spoken to, until taking the initiative to offer advice at one crucial turning point late in the film, first to one leading character, and then separately to the other leading character; both knowingly watch the back seat through the rear view mirror, occasionally nodding approval; and lastly, both are confirmed to be members of the leading character's family, and that they always will be..

Wrong note in classic song

I love Jill Wagner and this was an ok Hallmark but during the movie the classic tune Beautiful Dreamer was played on a piano and the played a wrong note. I thought maybe it was just a thing to make the player appear rusty. However later another character plays the same tune and plays the exact same wrong note. I am wondering did they play the wrong note because they didn't have permission to use it? I don't think one note changes the tune enough to avoid copyright infringement. Or the person in charge of the music just doesn't know Beautiful Dreamer correctly.
