    I could go on about how this is your standard Hallmark movie and how unsurprising everything in it is, but this isn't your standard romance, and for one reason only and that reason is Michael Ironside. Yes, that Michael Ironside.

    As usual I was pretty zoned out during the intro, but I almost choked on my peanuts when I noticed his name on the screen. I thought it must be some kind if mistake, but no, it's really him. Older…

    Other than that I was having a few laughs and the mostly female perspective was a nice change of pace while not losing out on the humor. That ending, though.
