As mismatched as one can possibly get
The 2016 June Wedding Hallmark films were a bit of a mixed bag. There were ones that were good, ‘Wedding Bells’ springing to mind. There were also ones that were real misfires, ‘The Convenient Groom’ being one. The 2016 Hallmark films varied, some good ones (‘Love in Paradise’, ‘Summer Villa’), some bad ones (‘Unleashing Mr Darcy’, ‘The Convenient Groom’) and many of them somewhere in between. The premise for ‘Ms Matched’ did sound quite cute.
Unfortunately, the execution was anything but. Really do have to agree with everybody that has said that ‘Ms Matched’ is terrible and has almost nothing to recommend it. Personally have seen worse films overall, but as far as Hallmark films it is somewhere in the bottom end. It is definitely too one of their worst from 2016 and the worst June Weddings film from that year. Have liked Alexa PenaVega elsewhere but this is not a good representation of her or anybody else involved.
‘Ms Matched’s’ least bad aspects are the production values and Shawn Roberts. The production values, especially the scenery are quite attractive.
Roberts, despite being an unusual choice for a love interest and maybe could have played the role softer, does inject some charm and charisma.
PenaVega is however completely flat as a character that is very sketchily developed (never rising above typical Hallmark cliche) and dull in personality. She and Roberts are hopelessly mismatched, do agree that they have nothing in common and the development of their very under-utilised romance is non existent to the extreme, they wouldn’t even be believable as acquaintances. Neither of the two characters are interesting or likeable, with the film really overdoing Roberts’ character’s cluelessness. The supporting cast were clearly under-directed and act as if they had no idea how to play their roles, which to be honest gives them practically nothing to work with.
Furthermore, the direction is barely routine and is often static and aimless. The music is used too much and is too loud, also badly lacking in variety. The script is very stilted and is filled to the brim with the pongiest of cheese, cavity inducing sugary sentiment and dreariness, there is no wit or spark or anything emotional. There is no charm or heart in the storytelling, and the film badly suffers from the over the top lack of realism. Very little makes sense here, especially in the final act. Worst of all is the very rushed and sudden out of the blue-like complete 180 of an ending, which feels like an over convenient cheat.
Concluding, not worth bothering with. 2/10.
First off – I love Hallmark movies, both genuinely and to riff on. I even have a Hallmark Movies Now subscription. This movie is not enjoyable in any sense of that word. It looks beautiful, yes – some great cinematography and acting! But the script is almost incomprehensibly bad, ESPECIALLY the characters. “Libby” (short for Liberia) is one of the worst-written leads I have ever seen. I found myself hitting my head with my hand multiple times after watching many of her scenes. She is psychotic… and not in the good way. Liberia also rude, spiteful and quick-to-anger, and it’s truly difficult to root for her – the MAIN character!! Whoever wrote her deserves to be kicked behind both of their knees when they least expect it. I’ll volunteer to do it. I’ll fly to LA!
I don’t even care!! Avoid this movie >:(
