I am not sure whether to call this a Halloween, Thanksgiving or just fall holiday video. Any way and any when you view it, it is a good movie. Yes, it is a bit hoakey in places - and I like hoakey in my life. Shannon plays her part well. The humor in this move is likewise enjoyable. It is also a good movie for the entire family.

Shannen Doherty plays Emma, a radio host at a Seattle based station. After receiving word that her grandfather has died, she drives the 3+ hours to get to the little community of Valleyville (pop. 800) where he had lived. She finds her grandpa's lawyer, a young man who has his office in the back of a store and whose main livelihood appears to be selling his own special blend of fertilizer (aka decomposed manure). He tells her that her grandfather and the community have already made all of the funeral arrangements.

But there is one thing her grandfather didn't take care of. He was deeply in debt and if the debt is not paid by the end of the year his farm would be repossessed and sold to developers. Her grandfather had trusted her not to let that happen. Now she needs to come up with $75,000 to prevent his farm from becoming part of the mayor's development plan.

In the meantime, things have been shaken up at the radio station with which she is employed and she has been reassigned to do a gardening show (about which she knows nothing), broadcast live from the farm she just inherited. Webcams are placed in the farmhouse and around the garden so listeners can even watch her broadcast, and her daily life.

Her neighbor is a scruffy looking mechanic who appears to repair everybody's vehicles, lawnmowers, appliances, etc., and half of his work seems scattered across his yard. His work is threatened by the coming of "Mighty Muffler," also part of the mayor's plan. He is trying to raise enough money to put his own shop on main street to keep up with the coming competition. (Though their relationship is fraught with mishaps, there is more to this guy than meets the eye, as she later learns.)

This is where the pumpkins come into the picture.

Not wanting to be disrespectful, I had trouble grasping what was said about this movie by some. I saw the movie before I read the reviews, then watched it after I read them in light of everything that was said, and, to be fair, I loaned it out to others for their opinions... others who are very picky & extremely conservative with what they watch. None of us felt that this movie had sexual overtones, even covertly. Other than the obvious romance, we could find nothing of the sort but everyone has their own opinion. We found this movie delightfully fun. Another Hallmark treat.

I'm a little biased sinceI wrote it. But when Amazon asked me to review it, I thought what the heck. :-) If you like Hallmark movies, it's a great one. The inspiration was my brother's obsession with giant pumpkin growing, which I always thought was kind of humorous. And the town Valleyville is a shout out to my home town and the nearby area my folks farm, Eatonville and Ohop Valley.

Wow, cannot believe that the reviews feel Shannen Doherty is middle aged. It used to be that you had to be in your 50's or 60's. In this day and age, nice to find a movie, you can just zone out and be distracted, even for a short time. Enjoyable.

I find it odd that Growing the BIG One is billed as a romantic comedy. It fell short on both counts. In fact, the plot was lifted straight from plot central where all the lazy writers get their ideas. You can even check off the points used to make this lackluster film as you watch it unfold. It started with death, debt, a pushy neighbor, job woes, and a dopey plan to solve all the aforementioned problems by winning big bucks......growing a BIG pumpkin. The main character Emma (Shannen Doherty) could just as easily gone the lotto route and gambled her future away on luck, that's how practical this scheme was. Calling the plot artificial from the get-go is putting it kindly. I could have accepted all the snowballing-worse-case-scenarios though, if it was at least funny or romantic. But for some strange reason only the filmmakers know, they held back on everything. The two leads, while attractive enough, didn't have any chemistry because it wasn't written into the story. Their relationship was amiable at best; they were like best buds out to build a clubhouse. They never got mad enough or sad enough, there was no sexual tension! The writers even halfheartedly wrote in the possibility of a triangle between the mechanic, the radio host, and a manure guy, but it went nowhere. The two villains in this piece, the shallow new bossy boss and the mayor of the Podunk town, couldn't even sustain more than an "oh-no" moment each. This movie definitely lacked enthusiasm in all departments. It's beyond generic; it's lifeless. It's also harmless, tame, and uncomplicated and ends with the obvious.
When the credits began to roll, I had to ask myself did they even kiss? I don't remember.
This film is guaranteed not to offend anyone, nor will hearts aflutter. Eh. It is what it is.
