Sweet and sappy
15 September 2020 | by Jackbv123See all my reviews

I like sappy. I prefer to call it tender, as in tender moments.

I love Jewel Staite. Besides being a Firefly alum and Stargate Atlantis, she was well cast for this role. I think she can do that unexpected strength trait well. And it was easy to identify with her pain. Her speech in the second to last scene was a good one.

Travis Milne was solid and Stephanie Bennett played an important role as Sarah's sister-in-law who was unexpectedly hiding her own pain, but only showing a strong face for Sarah.

The relationship between Ryan and Sarah is perfect. They progress from cautious to something deeper seamlessly. It makes sense. Sometimes the progress is shown through little things like the ring.

The story may have a predictable outcome and even some milestones along the way, but it isn't an overused plot line. It's a good story. In addition to tender moments there are some funny moments, but most of them are dry humor and some are funny because of how bad the jokes are (and they are meant to be).

I enjoyed this movie and I'm sure I'll watch it again. If you don't like this kind of movie, then don't watch it, or switch channels, but don't criticize it for being what it was meant to be.
