Predictable But Watchable
This TV movie has a predictable and formulaic story, but if you are looking for a good-natured romance, it will fit the bill.
A booking mix-up has two strangers renting the same house at the same time. This is a familiar scenario, complicated by the fact that they own pets that don't get along. Laura Haley (Cassidy Gifford) has a dog named Frank, and Spencer Hodkins (Wyatt Nash) has a cat named Mozart. It seems the stars are aligned against this pair with the dueling pets and the competing leases. Plus Spencer has a girlfriend.
But we know that love will find a way, especially in a Hallmark film. Unfortunately, though, I did not feel much chemistry between the two leads. Cassidy Gifford is the daughter of Frank and Kathie Lee. She is a beautiful woman with lots of energy who is very likable. Wyatt Nash is an alumnus of the "Survivor" series. He plays an uptight character---so much so that it interferes with the credibility of the destined relationship.
There is a twist at the end, but you might see it coming from far away; that doesn't spoil the story, however.
The best part of this film is Cassidy Gifford. Coincidentally, she was in two films with the same title. This one is from 2017.
