Countdown to the Thanksgiving Parade. The sentimental heroine, Emily(Autumn Reeser), is in charge of coordinating it, but by order of the city, she must work with, better said, contend with a handsome development consultant,"jerk", Henry(Antonio Cupo), who is set on doing drastic changes in order to make the parade solvent.
Heads butt immediately between the two. She determines to convince him of the worth of the parade as is. What ensues is a series of funny romantic situations that the two constantly find themselves stuck in.
Several problems, of course, exist(*Alert-don't read ahead if you don't want to know absolutely anything about the story's premise*): 1. He's still a "jerk" about to sell out the parade; 2. She's has a boyfriend. He's a marine biologist who's always away, and their relationship of 5 years is mostly via Skype. They apparently love each other greatly, and he's coming back to propose to her; moreover, she's already bought her wedding dress. 3. Henry has commitment problems, i.e., after the 5th date he breaks up because the woman starts talking marriage. Her friend sums it up with a true RC maxim: "Men don't know they want a long term relationship. That is until they meet the right woman." *End alert.*
The actors are terrific. Studly, but not focused on it, Antonio Cupo plays the hero as an organized, calculating planner- self-absorbed, no place to call a home, his past haunts him. If they gave out Oscars for Best Actress in a RC, it would go to Ms. Reeser. Her Emily is cute and endearing- energetic, opinionated, deeply felt, she wears vintage clothes from the 50&60's, up for a fight if need be, with a strong front but a deep vulnerable core. She dreams of only one thing(like many of us want and some of us are blessed to have). She seeks true love with a lifetime partner through marriage.
This film uses every RC trick in the book. Well done, nicely shot with characters that one cares about, probably the best RC with Chicago setting since "While You Were Sleeping".
It’s a cute movie without being overly saccharine. Both leads are likable. The ending was a foregone conclusion but it was fun watching the plot work its way in that direction.
