Just hasn’t got ‘IT’!
I gave this movie a 5 and that only for the parents, sister and niece. They were real and easy to watch. BUT the main couple had no spark whatsoever. Dreadful casting. Like a pair of teenagers giggling their way through a weak script. I almost turned it off several times but kept hoping it would pick up. It didn’t. Hallmark you must try harder. You seem to be losing ‘IT’!
Feel Good Movie
This is a good feel-good Hallmark movie. Hallmark movies are feel-good movies with low drama, sometimes spiritual, happy ending movies. If you need drama, action (world coming to an end), mystery, sexy love scenes, Hallmark movies are not for you. This is a sugary warm apple fritter with coffee in a good ole Canadian coffee shop feel good, picker upper movie.
The location is Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The maze is located in a small town just minutes away from Winnipeg in the upper northeast area. That maze is real. It really happens. The main street shots with the beautiful buildings and bridge over a river thing are Winnipeg. And there’s much more to the city. Skyscrapers, anyone?
Jessy Schram did an amazing thing; she had very little makeup on. Did you notice? She’s one of those, hmm, not-so-knockout beauty at first site kind of girl. Without the aid of makeup, her beauty slowly penetrates your mind, and before you know it, she hooks you. Suddenly, you find yourself looking forward to close-ups… and for myself, I wished I was thirty years younger.
The chemistry between Julia Miller and Nate Perry was not over the top; you’ve got mail, impossible to find in real-life connections. The chemistry was simply natural. And that makes it easy for you, the viewer, to put yourself in their snowshoes. Typically, Hallmark has a tough time with chemistry, but this was acceptable.
Julia Miller and Nate Perry’s acting was natural. In movies, one person completes a sentence and then the other starts theirs. One sentence here…. and another there…. and another. But in real life, we often start a sentence in the middle of someone’s sentence. It’s like, we get the gist, now for the next point. In several scenes, this movie did just that. And that’s unusual. And refreshing. Once again, it’s real enough that the viewer can imagine being there.
One thing I like, as a born Canadian naturalized American, is the phrases that popped up here and there by the Canadian cast. Nate Perry, in one scene, used the phrase, “Hometime.” That’s a phrase I grew up within Toronto and haven’t heard since my move to the States (Chicago, Boston, Orlando). That’s not surprising. One of the writers was from Montreal. So, for Canadians viewing, it comes off as a bit of a kick. While we’re on the subject, Jessy Schram has a Chicago accent. Most of the cast have a Canadian accent. See if you can hear it.
The supporting cast was superb. Came across as natural and unforced. And they did what was needed, support the main characters without trying to steal the show.
Often, especially with Hallmark, you expect the shoe to drop two-thirds in. In this movie, it didn’t happen. What did happen was character development. Julia Miller slowly fell in love with Nate, overcoming fear, and Nate’s character developed to overcome rejection. The crescendo was typical Hallmark.
Which reminds me… I suddenly have a craving for an apple fritter and coffee… in a Canadian coffee shop.
