Cupid & Cate is fast-food drama, but you can't turn away from a movie with a dazzling cast including Mary-Louise Parker, Peter Gallagher, Philip Bosco, Bebe Neuwirth, Brenda Fricker, and Joanna Going. This Hallmark Hall of Fame TV movie features Parker as Cate, proprietor of an upscale, second-hand clothing store. In handy dramatic terms, the shop is a gleaming repository of old memories--memory itself being something like emotional quicksand for black sheep Cate, who blames her domineering father (Philip Bosco) for her sisters' over-achieving ways as well as for the suffering of her late, alcoholic mother. Newly freed from an engagement to a chilly Brahmin type, Cate begins her life anew with the arrival of a near-perfect fellow (Gallagher) who adores her but is in an uphill fight for survival. The patchy script is riddled with unmodulated emotional pitches and incredible resolutions, but, hey, those actors are charm personified. --Tom Keogh

I was not expecting much from Cupid & Cate.
After all, after reading that the 2000 film would be broadcast on St. Valentine's week via the Hallmark Channel, I was subjected to the tortures of endless promos for the "Love and Romance" week.
In short, I was expecting the quintessential, dreaded and demonic cash seeking "Date Movie".
You know the drill, a cute little romantic alleged comedy, starring the likes of Sandra Bullock or Hugh Grant or even worse, Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant TOGETHER.
Even commercials or online descriptions of the film, portrayed the film as something like: "The only thing standing in the way of true love for Cate....is her fiancée".
Hand me the remote.... Survivor in the Amazon is on!
To be honest, the film starts off just that way. It was easily predicted that the well meaning, but dull as watching paint drying fiancée would hit the road before the start of the second act. However, it quickly became apparent that the romantic aspects of the film, although genuinely portrayed by an excellent cast, were secondary. The film is primarily about the strained relationship between a father and daughter and how their experiences parallel one another.
It made for fascinating viewing, with outstanding performances from Philip Bosco and Mary-Louise Parker. After struggling to sit through the nearly banal Mr. Wonderful, where Ms. Parker was given 1 descent scene, here she really shines. One can easily see the development in her art over her performances from the early 90's. As good as her performance was in A Place For Annie, she's even better here. A very tender and above all, real performance. Peter Gallagher and Brenda Fricker are also standouts.
Added attractions to the film are beautiful autumn scenes and Ms.

I happened to catch this on the Hallmark Channel and thought by the title is was going to be one of those 'cutsy' movies that Hallmark seems to produce. Well...I was pleasantly surprised! This film was a delight. Mary Louise Parker and Peter Gallagher are just adorable together. The story line is very real, and you could just imagine all the situations happening in your own family. It does not have just romantic overtones, but it is also a family drama. I loved it so much that I immediately got the video as soon as it came out. I now own the DVD as well and I can't count the times I have watched it. I just love romance I guess! If you have the chance to see this sweet film, try it, I think you might like it-

I enjoy Mary-Louise Parker in any setting, from Fried Green Tomatoes to Boys on the Side. This movie was captivating to me because of her unique mannerisms as always, and also because I enjoyed the vintage clothing she wore and sold.

The story line was bittersweet in parts, but the ending was how I had hoped it would be.

The entire cast was excellent in this movie and very well suited to their images.

I highly recommend it unless family turmoil isn't your thing. Mary-Louise Parker at her best.

A bit too frothy, even for HH of Fame movie. The ending? Absolutely terrible. I think viewers should be allowed to enjoy or cry by tying up the story a bit nicer. This probably disappointed me most of the film, despite it's enchanting romantic story.

I have always thought Mary-Louise Parker was a fantastically expressive actress, since I first seen her years ago in Fried Green Tomatoes. The chemistry of the actors interaction on this family-friendly, sweet show is great. I loved it!

We love Hallmark movies, but this is one of our all-time favorites. We watch it several times a year. It is a beautiful love story that encompasses the tragedy of a dysfunctional family and the challenges of a young couple facing leukemia.

Another favorite movie of mine. Mary-Louise Parker is wonderful in each movie she has been in. She owns a small shop with legacy clothes. Another woman who was settling for someone until she found true love. She also has some family problems which gets resolved.

This is a typical Hallmark Hall of Fame TV movie. I enjoyed the story for its twists and turns and the real life lessons it offers. Mary-Louise Parker and Peter Gallagher are both great and have real chemistry with each other. Coming from a family of seven girls I could relate to the family dynamics and a daughters need for a fathers approval. If you like Hallmark movies, this is a must-see.
