Quite Disappointing
24 September 2016 | by itsallidoSee all my reviews

I have watched Hallmark movies for years. I cannot recall ever being this disappointed. Though I liked the story concept, this was extremely slow and boring from the start. The biggest reason, possibly the only reason I watched the entire movie is that I like the leading actors.

I've enjoyed watching both Vanessa Marcil and David Sutcliffe in a number of films over the past few years. Because of this, I was surprised at how bad the acting seemed to be. Then, I realized that the directing was where the problem must be. I believe the script must be sub-par as well.

At least some of the makeup in the film left a lot to be desired. On more than a few of the shots, Vanessa's makeup looked as if it was "caked up" on her face. The only reason I mention makeup is it seemed to be sloppily done and made her look older than she is.

The biggest reason for rating this as high as 5/10 is that I liked the concept.
