1st Movie: Hey, sometimes you just want to sit down and watch some feel-good, syrupy Hallmark nonsense. This was perfectly enjoyable, and it was so nice to see Ed Asner again. Probably a daft reason for taking off 1 star, but the lead actor, to me, looked sooo much older than the lead actress and I was confused how they were hooking her up with someone who could be her dad's age, and. not mentioning it. Turns out he's just 7 years older.
2nd Movie: for some Amazon-y reason, the second movie, All of My Heart: Inn Love is under the same reviews as the first, and you can't separate them. The second film is so bad! Like torturing myself to sit through it so I know what happens, in the hopes that the 3rd movie is redeeming! Inn Love has literally *none* of the charm of the first movie, and the plot doesn't even make any sense. Why would you be upset and whiny that your fiancee is doing major heavy lifting specifically to make money to keep *your* dream afloat. It makes you dislike the female character, as she comes across as daft and ungrateful. Also, the blogger character is the first time in all of my years watching Hallmark that there's been someone who literally grates my nerve and makes me want to stop watching, on the spot. Really hope the 3rd movie is better, but not holding my breath.
