The story is totally based on the formula where mom and dad are selling the business Sadie grew up to love. But it’s like the formula got lost in translation from another language. The elements are obvious, but so many things don’t flow right. They don’t make sense.
It starts out fine. I liked that Sadie not only didn’t get fired, but she wasn’t under any pressure from her boss. All the pressure was her own disappointment. Immediately her jerk of a boyfriend calls her and tells her he is too busy to join her for Christmas. At that point, Sadie is done with him. Then mom and dad drop the bombshell. And Sadie accidentally runs into Alex, the new owner, without knowing it’s him. Then she has to train him. They grow closer together. Sadie meets Francie the daughter and of course they hit it off. And Sadie has to plan a big party on short notice and a snowstorm throws a wrench in her plans. All good. It’s totally by the numbers, but it’s going as the viewer would expect..
Then things get strange. There’s the usual misunderstanding, but that’s treated like a tiny blip. The ex-boyfriend comes into play, but why? The way it’s done is totally pointless and the screen time would have been better used smoothing out the climax. The climax is a total cluster. The outcome is predictable, but it makes no sense how it gets there. As another reviewer points out, the character development explaining certain things is totally lacking. All of a sudden, the characters are just there. The epilogue is another thing that seems pointless – the way it’s done, it’s almost pointless. But then maybe it’s artsy.
The acting is mostly good. Malone Thomas and Jason Burkey have mixed chemistry, but mostly it’s good.
This was an odd movie. The lead female character was unlikable. She was spoiled, pouts, and is very sore loser, who changed her major in college because she did not win a contest. She did not seem interested in the store or chocolate until her boyfriends stands her up and she goes home and discovers her parents are selling the store they have owned for 40 years, without even consulting their spoiled only child. This whole plot was sloppy and full of holes and awkward. Also why does Lifetime constantly list their movies under different titles? To hide the bad ones from people? This is the 5th movie I have looked up in their 2020 catalog that has a different title then the final title they run it under.
