An Extra Star for Bethany Joy Lenz and the Lack of a “Frolic” Scene

This one follows the Hallmark template almost perfectly. All of the plot points and characters are straight off the mix and match stock list and hardly one left out. The only thing it didn’t have was a cutesy snowball fight, snow angel or snowman session, baking flour fight, food fight, splashing or dunking in the water etc. etc. etc. Of course I did doze off for a minute or two so I may have missed the frolic scene. Bethany Joy did manage to snag herself with a fishing hook, but that was actually kind of amusing. So why a 6? That’s my grade for Ho-hum but not blatantly insulting or cringe-worthy. Lenz’s comic timing and likable portrayal bumped it up at least one star. Her love interest was an non-entity, and the romance was unbelievable and practically non-existent. I hope she goes back to Portland.

  1. Your review is so good. I like that you’re to the point. I’ve seen several of Bethany Joy Lenz’s Hallmark films. Maybe it’s just me, but sometimes she seems like a chameleon. Is it her changes in hairstyle?? She had bangs in the one with Andrew Walker in Bottled With Love. Liked that movie better than Just My Type (yawn).
