Sweet

This is a family-friendly romance about a couple set up by his son. The rural, small town setting was idyllic. It's kind of cheesy, but entertaining nonetheless.

Ryan McPartlin is delicious as usual. Loved seeing Erin in this as well.

Warm, fuzzy. Ignore the attitudes of those that didn't like it. It's great and you need to feast your eyes on a great love story.

This was so cute and funny I laughed every minute. It was one clever quip or visual joke after another. I loved the characters and the directing and music and scenery were great.

Great movie

This is one of the best romantic films I have seen. Also the female protagonist is one of the most charming girls I have ever seen on screen, ever. There is a great chemistry between the protagonists.

One big problem keeps me away from this one
Ryan McPartlin and Erin Krakow are good together. This movie premiered on Hallmark in 2014 under the title "Chance at Romance". The plot is boiler plate in some respects, such as the widower with one child meets single girl and the kid approves. I joke around that no single Hallmark girl should ever consider marrying a never been married man. Or if she does, she should avoid having children. Otherwise, she is destined to leave him a widower while he is still young enough to find someone else, so Hallmark can make a movie about it.

But seriously, this version of that plot and the acting overcame the repetitive story line. I enjoyed this the first time and recommend it for an entertaining one time experience.

But at one point it went off the rails of plausibility such that I cannot suspend disbelief and ever watched it again. Each time I think about watching it again, I remember how hard it is to swallow the idea that a celebrated but struggling photographer can host a successful photography show consisting only of pictures of just one woman. Ridiculous !! Most people would never buy a picture of a random unfamiliar woman. What wife or girlfriend would even allow it? Why would any single man do it? Rhetorical question. Thus is born the "ridiculous" factor. The writer needed a better solution; this one lacked creativity.

For the acting and plot uniqueness this gets good marks. Because I cannot watch it repeatedly, it gets reduced marks.
