2.0 out of 5 starsCute but an inferior remake of a 2012 movie. Not long enough ago

Remakes happen all the time, but this is too soon. This movie is an inferior remake of the same story in a 2012 movie. The plot, every scene, every flow, every conversation, even the supporting actors and their roles and dialog are borrowed/copied. Alter the script slightly. Alter the careers and hobbies, remove the Christmas parts, replace Arielle Kebbel with Karissa Lee Staples, replace Andrew W Walker with Peter Mooney. Replace kennel volunteer with scout volunteer. Gees. Do all this and the movie "A Bride For Christmas" becomes this movie. The same number of Ex fiances. Her most recent shows up in exactly the same situations and says the same things. Client goes to parents house, Mom invited the X. The competition, the bet. The kiss. The proposal. This could be a better movie except every scene and every event is parallel. Standing by itself, this is a cute movie. Not as entertaining as its predecessor, not as well directed. And by the way Peter Mooney is completely unconvincing as a basketball player. Awkward. This script is more shallow, and the emotional scenes not as well directed. Well if I had not seen the predecessor, perhaps I would have enjoyed this more. Standing by itself this movie is a 3 star. The predecessor was a 5. The ending scene of this is cheesy.

Post script: I re-watched this hoping to be able to revise for the better my previous comments. Unfortunately I could not. The script is where this movie has so may sore spots. It is as if the screenwriter took the original script and referenced a thesaurus to discover how to say phrases in a second best way.

Re-watched this again because the person I was with wanted to. It got WORSE the third time. One word: CONTRIVED. That's it. I demoted this to 2 stars and removed it from the watch list.

1.0 out of 5 starsHorrible movie- This is what's wrong with society

Besides the bad acting, music, and camera work, The plot of this movie was stupid, it shows 2 people getting married after a month and in no ways shows how they are the least bit compatible for each other. People getting married so quickly is why there is such a high divorce rate in America. Blahhhhh waste of my time. Were the writers (who copied a bit from how to lose a guy in 10 days) completely strung out when they wrote this? Was the producer having a stroke when they signed on to make this movie???

4.0 out of 5 starscute, cheesy, kinda dumb, but entertaining
Verified purchase
Runaway bride tropes; guy tries to date/marry a girl for a bet, then falls for her and drops the bet but she finds out trope; being forced to spend time together because one is injured/ill trope...there's nothing fresh or new here, but the acting is good, the characters are likeable (other than the ex-fiance who comes across as a selfish, stalkery jerk), and it has a happy ending.

Few people fall in love and get married in under a month, and those who do often end up regretting it, so it isn't realistic to find "The One" and True Love so quickly. Toss realism aside, and it's cute and enjoyable.

1.0 out of 5 starsRomcom for idiots
Verified purchase
Horrible plot, horrible acting. What they fell in love after a week. Some of the scenes are just so ridiculous. Dumb ending. They should have at least saved enough in the budget for some decent entertaining dance choreography.
SPOILER:
So they get married at the end but he doesn't care that none of his family, friends get to be there. And everyone thinks its a good idea to get married even before they know anything about each other. This film is such garbage

5.0 out of 5 starsFresh, even though familiar
Verified purchase
Sure, I recognized the plot. It was the plot of a relatively recent movie that also had a bet and a disgruntled fiance trying to wreck marriage plans.

However, when I saw THAT movie, I could only think about the Runaway Bride, which starred Julia Roberts, who is so much more a celebrity star, teamed up with Richard Gere, who only brought 'Pretty Woman' to mind whenever he appeared next to her.

It doesn't matter. The plot is simple, but the characters are new and fresh and have their own strengths and weaknesses. I liked all three of these 'reluctant bride' movies. Peter Mooney is so attractive and fit. He's the perfect suitor for this bride. I hope they cycle off into the sunset together, training for a triathalon. It makes so much sense!

It makes for an even better match than Julia Roberts and Richard Gere, to be honest. Gere was a little too intellectual for that gangly small-town girl Roberts. I was not convinced that she matured quickly at the end into the person who would match his level of sophistication.

'Betting on the Bride' may be the best of the three similarly themed films, but then, check back here when the fourth and fifth remakes have been made. It's never going to get old.

3.0 out of 5 starsSuperficial Plastic Girl
Verified purchase
This movie was filled to the brim with overused plot devices. The heroine is very superficial and lacks any real depth. Her major 'flaw' being that she has had three fiances in the past and has 'runaway' from the alter each time. The hero is described as a womanizer and yet we do not see this in action at any point during the movie. Congrats for actually getting this made into a movie in the first place. I would consider this mediocre at best and have no desire to rewatch.

The most annoying part was when they were doing yoga and he pokes her in the rib and somehow she hurts her ankle---cliche cliche cliche.
