Hallmark Movie Review #1 - A Country Wedding




Sooo, I can guess your type. 

You're a romantic. Sort of. The Notebook is one of your all time favorite movies, but you can't stand those cheesy-as-a-mozzarella-stick hallmark movies. 

That's why I'm here.

Renewing your faith in comfy blankets and no-strings-attatched Hallmark movies, one cheesy line at a time.




About the movie

A famous country singer set to marry a glamorous Hollywood actress returns to his small town roots. When he crosses paths with his childhood sweetheart – and finally feels inspired to write songs again – he reevaluates his life, his values and his opinion of true love. As his wedding day approaches, he must decide if he has chosen the right woman to be his wife.


Cast

Jesse Metcalfe - Bradley Suttons



Autumn Reeser - Sarah Standor 



Laura Menell - Catherine Mann



Lauren Holly - Margaret Feldburg


The cast...was perfect. Jesse fit his country role perfectly. Autumn was perfectly believable as a sweet, small town girl. Laura fit city slicker girlfriend to a t. (Although for whatever reason, her hair looked like she had a wig on to me...) And Lauren Holly fit the movie like a glove.



Predictability

Everyone says that hallmark movies are predictable...right? Check out where A Country Wedding is on the scale! (5 being the least predictable (best!), 1 being the most predictable (worst!))


It is a hallmark movie...of course you're guessing at what's going to happen within the first 20 minutes! That being said, it's definitely not the worst on the scale, so it gets 2 stars on the non predictability scale.


Storyline/Cheesiness

Romance aside, it's what we're all here for, but we cannot staaaand all that cheese. A frequent fault of Hallmark critics, some stories are so cheesy, we can't even finish the movie. Check out where A Country Wedding is on the scale! (5 being the best, 1 being the worst)


As you can see, at 5 stars, the cuteness level was OFF the charts. Literally. I've watched this movie somewhere around 15 times after I first saw it. In essense, I fell in love. No pun intended. 



Reality Check
Sometimes movies just are NOT realistic. Check out where A Country Wedding is on the scale! (1 being the most predictable, 5 being the least)

It is absolutely possible to grow up next to someone who will become famous, and equally possible for that person to come home and reconnect with said neighbor. Well done, Hallmark. 

Humor/puns

I happen to adore funny movies! They keep me engaged and add something to the story, although sometimes it's better without it.(5 being the most humor, 1 being the least)

One of the many reasons I loved this movie was probably how engaging it was. The characters had endearing nicknames, ribbed eachother, and were just overall very funny, earning every bit of their 4 stars!

                       
Romance/Ending

I'm going to go out on a limb here, and say this is the MOST important part of a romance movie. Duh. So where is A Country Wedding on the scale? Check it out! (5 being best, one being the worst!)


I did. From Brad's adorable country accent and beautiful voice, to Sarah's determination to hold onto what you believe in (especially, in love!, I absolutely adored A Country Wedding. 

Hallmark, give me more.
