Aired as the third of four original films in The Hallmark Channel's 2016 "Fall Harvest" lineup. See more »


The fields in the opening shot are full of CGI pumpkins. Pausing the action reveals that there are only a handful of pumpkin images that have been copied and pasted over and over, made to look different by flipping, re-sizing, mirroring, etc. them. In many spots, several of an identical image are even bunched together with no effort made to differentiate between them. See more »

Above the average Hallmark movie
24 October 2016 | by jonathanrspaldingSee all my reviews

Hallmark now produces movies at almost soap opera pace. In fall 2017 it appears there will be six of the Autumn/Halloween movies. This volume means a lot of them are hackneyed and redundant. However, some are better than others and this falls in that category. Of course we all know how they will end. The joy is in the journey I guess. That being said I think there are four factors that make or break a Hallmark Movie.

First, are the lead roles good characters with depth and well acted. Second, does the romance seem to be real or contrived. Third, are the comedy portions of the movie actually funny. (I would say this is an oft neglected factor for Halmark) Fourth, are there a few nice quirks to the story line to add some drama. All four are true here to one degree to another. Here too the actual dialogue was of better quality than most Hallmarks. Meaning you don't have characters constantly saying thingsthat no human being would ever say to another.

The negative to this movie is that there were no neat subplots or side characters to round out the story. On the positive side it was consistently well acted, paced, with a nice twist at the end that make it a movie to see next Fall.
