No Stress and Stiletto Heels
on February 23, 2013
If you like safe, clean, and predictable romantic comedies, especially with a dog, you'll love this movie. Hallmark/Gaiam put out bunches of these films(see recently released, Fairfield Road), and they're well made with good actors and family friendly, this one's Dove approved for all ages.
Here stars Candace Cameron Bure, who's very good at this type of role, as single mom/professor Megan, and hunky guy, Victor Webster as Jake the aging ballplayer. Their paths cross when Jake's dog is mistakened for a stray and adopted by Megan and her 10 year old daughter, Caitlin(well played). Both Caitlin and Jake love the dog, but Megan and Jake are at odds with each other. All parties agree on joint pooch custody.
There's light comedy, and the possibility that the battle between the sexes could lead to an unexpected romance. Our kids were interested during the first half while the dog was the main focus, but got antsy when the romance started to rear its mushy, gushy, head. Hey, at least there's something for everyone!
Sweet and non-threatening in all manner, shape and form, it'll either bore you silly, or you'll enjoy it. Candace Cameron Bure wears her high heeled boots just to barely get up to Victor Webster's shoulders. Cute dog.
