Editorial Reviews

An accountant, who never quite grew out of his awkward teenage years, finds himself with a dating coach. He gets a pretty woman he has his sights on for some time, but realizes they are incompatible. Meanwhile, his dating lessons with his teenage crush reawaken old feelings. Not realizing the feelings are mutual, he finds himself unable to act on them due to his fear of being rejected by the one he truly loves.

To my shame - for I am a manly man - I find myself hooked on the Hallmark Channel. To offset those times when I'm out chopping wood or whittling with my Bowie knife or recaulking stuff, I sometimes take my ease by taking in diverting romantic comedy films like 2012's HOW TO FALL IN LOVE. Eric Mabius and Brooke D'Orsay star in this one and you're probably having the same reaction I did: "Who the heck are they?" I had never heard of Mabius & D'Orsay - they sound like a French magic act or an occult detective agency - but it's okay. We navigate thru what could've been a pedestrian narrative made exceedingly watchable, thanks to fine performances by Mabius & D'Orsay. Or if we don't care about hurting Eric Mabius's feelings, thanks mostly to Brooke D'Orsay.

The plot revolves around a painfully shy accountant who hires a dating coach to help him gain self-confidence. Except that this fledgling dating coach, Annie Hayes (D'Orsay), turns out to be the same girl on whom Harold White (Mabius) once had a crush years ago in high school. Harold, back during his formative years, was a social misfit. And, distressingly, Harold has never outgrown his awkward teenhood. It's depressing when your local waitress greets you with this sort of familiarity: "Let me guess. Table for one, right?" So that's Harold's plight. He makes Rainman seem like a wild bon vivant.

Not that the "dating coach" has got her sh-- together. Annie Hayes is an event planner by day, but times are lean, and so she supplements that by waitressing. Annie by nature is happy-go-lucky and seems stuck in inertia and relies on her older sister's good graces. Except that her sister has dropped an ultimatum. She wants Annie to move out already.

Possibly one of my favorite movies. I like good clean movies (or as clean as you can get nowadays). How to Fall in Love was really quite clean. I originally saw this movie on Hallmark Channel and bought it as soon as it came to DVD. Most people would skip it because they think it is too predictable or "lame", but I like movies like that because I know I will be watching something that won't make me feel like I have just been "slimed".

Every time Harold White asks a woman out it ends in disaster. He still suffers from an "ugly-duckling syndrome" in his youth that has haunted him ever since. He thinks that he hasn't changed all that much. However, Annie, the pretty/popular girl he knew and had a crush on in high school (who he asked out once and she didn't pay much attention to) meets him again and wants him to hire her to be his dating coach (and help him gain some self-esteem). It is very cute how Annie draws Harold out of his shell and teaches him about who he is and who he wants to be. Lesson #1: Self-Confidence. Lesson #2: Breaking the Ice. Lesson #3: The Art of Conversation. Lesson #4: Start Sharing. Lesson #5: Make Her Feel Special. Lesson #6: Getting Close. Lesson #7: Compromise. Lesson #8: Follow Your Heart. She thinks she is helping him to ask out the girl he has seen in the coffee shop, but Harold still likes his "teacher" and as Annie gets to know her "student" better, they find that they like their lives so much more with each other in it. And they would like to keep it that way.

Overall, I really love this move and will definitely watch it over and over again.

How often does anyone make a romantic comedy rated G these days? I was intrigued by this offering, I was not disappointed. This was a sweet, cute film. My family enjoyed watching it together. No bad language. No inappropriate scenes or immodesty. No innuendo. (The only "adult" element was some drinking; however, the scenes were not "partying scenes," so it isn't highlight as a main story component.)

If you're looking for great cinema, head to the next aisle, there's nothing here. On the other hand, if you're looking for a nice romantic comedy, you've come to the right place. Harold White (Eric Mabius) is a flop when it comes to women, so his best friend convinces him to seek a dating coach. After being turned off by the one his friend suggested, Harold ends up giving his high school crush, Annie Hayes (Brooke D'Orsay) the job. What follows is a predictable, but nonetheless enjoyable, series of life lessons.
The chemistry between D'Orsay and Mabius sizzles and the relationship between teacher and pupil is delightful. Oh, and there's good solid wisdom in Annie's lessons, to boot!
All in all, it's a fun Hallmark movie. Enjoy!

This is one of my favorite Hallmark movies. Anytime it's on I watch it! I love the story and the characters. It's a sweet movie and though it does remind me of "Can't Buy Me Love" in the theme of ugly duckling guy gets the pretty girl...it's done in a more mature way.
*may contain spoilers*

Harold is an awkward fellow with vivid memories of his awkward teenage years, and the girl that broke his heart. Harold is an easy going, simple, and quite man who works as an accountant and has a passion for photography. He's quite content being the shy, but lonely guy until his well meaning friend Willie suggests that he find a dating coach to help with his crippling awkwardness with women.

Annie was the carefree, popular, pretty girl in school. The girl who every guy fawned over. She was so busy having fun, she didn't see the hearts she broke. Annie is all grown up now, but is still carefree....restlessly jumping from one career and one relationship to the next. She leaves the city to come back to her hometown and live with her married sister and her family while she tries to save her money up to start an Event Planning venture. In the meantime she gets a job as a waitress in a diner and counts her pennies as she's desperately trying to pay her bills....and repair her car that is on the fritz.

Annie's sister Claire, reintroduces Harold and Annie at Annie's niece's birthday party. Harold awkwardly greets Annie and remembers vividly the dance they attended together as teenagers, while Annie struggles to put together just who this guy is.
Annie runs into Harold again at work, when she mentions that her car is broken down and she doesn't have ride home. Harold shyly volunteers to drive her home after her shift.
