Storyline

Gwen, a director of television commercials, has mapped out her life in an attempt to be in control. That plan was devised as she never wants to be thrown for a curve like she was when she was thirteen when her father unexpectedly died. That plan includes being engaged by the time she reaches thirty, which is just around the corner. That engagement and imminent marriage will be followed by moving to Los Angeles to further her career. Alex, an image conscious on-air weatherman and Gwen's boyfriend of three years, knows of Gwen's plans, he who seemingly factors perfectly into those plans. When what Gwen envisioned will be the perfect romantic proposal from Alex not only does not materialize on her thirtieth birthday, but that a proposal from him doesn't happen in any form at all on that day, Gwen makes an off the cuff secret birthday wish to be able to see ten years into her future. Gwen does end up seeing a vision of what she assumes is supposed to be her in ten years, that vision which... Written by Huggo

Fun, and enjoyable with one or two eye rolls.
24 February 2019 | by MIssM19See all my reviews

This is not a new concept for me. I have seen movies with this kind of "magical realism" before and I love it. I like that Hallmark used it, but the only thing I ask is that they don't try to use this concept again, otherwise this original movie will be ruined.

Jessy Schram is a pleasure to watch, she is fun, energetic, and I adore her characters. Luke MacFarlane is a a refreshing face to see. (I know, I'm watching this two years later). And the chemistry was wonderful. The plot was, indeed, stupid, but fun and enjoyable. I like these movies because you get away from the real world for an hour and half.

I only had two problems with this: the fact that the character was desesperate to get married and I get it, it was part of the plot but I couldn't help but to roll my eyes in more than one ocassion. And the other thing was the classic cliche that must be in a Hallmark movie: characters assuming thing they shouldn't and just running away. The less cliches there are, the better.

What I did like, and a lot, was the humor in the movie. They don't tend to include a lot, but this did. And the characters, being a contrast to each other was beautiful: Dave encouraging Gwen to just live and don't let herself carry away with her life plan. And both of them motivating each other to face their fears, it made it look like a real relationship. And I always like when they know each other beforehand. It makes the romance more realistic.
