Such a frustrating disappointment
People are voting emotionally.
Best movie ever!
The performances transcend the film's tropes, grounding it in characters that feel more complete than this subgenre often produces.
Whoever the casting director was needs to be fired. Mia Kirshner's acting was so dry, expressionless and void of emotion, that she pulled the movie down. She is aptly named Mia because her personality was M.I.A. in this movie. Barry Watson did a great job and really played his role well. This movie would've been a lot better with a strong female lead and someone that had chemistry with Barry Watson.
One summer of teenage love ends with the summer itself and we then fast forward to 15 years later.This is still another wonderful Hallmark film as it deals with the reconnecting of the past, and putting good times over money. It's also the story of land Realtors and their greed.When our young lady, now grown and working for the developer, goes to Pine Lake as the representative of the boss, who wants to buy the land and take apart the camp, she meets her summer love who now owns the camp from his retired uncle.The two seem to connect and all goes beautifully until he finds out why she came up to the lake.This is a story of following your dreams, hopes and ambitions. The ending might have been a little inane but it made a very good point.
This one was awful even for the stereotypical Hallmark movie. The script was awful, the acting was weak, the editing was bad, the continuity was terrible....It was either this or an NBA playoff game the other night. I should have watched the NBA (and I hate pro basketball).The actress who played Zoe as a girl was taller than the one who played her as an adult (that's great casting for you).Most Hallmark movies are overly sentimental and sappy, but are at least entertaining. This one was almost campy funny in places (no pun intended).
This Hallmark Channel TV movie about two kids who had a summer camp romance and in some ways moved on, but in other ways did not is a pretty good romantic comedy for the channel. It is strengthened by some nice photography of the woods-and-lake scenery around the camp and by a change from the usual way that the characters are handled. Like most of them, he's a bit goofy, but successful in the world with a wide streak of philanthropy that leads him to rescue the failing camp where he first met her; she is trying to buy the property for development, but is not the usual brittle-but-ready-to-fall damsel that populates most of these Hallmark romcoms.The plot line, including the message that we must accept our pasts and not move on, but build from them, is fairly well foreshadowed early on, but it's all very pleasantly executed and if you have any taste for this sort of movie, you'll have a fine time.
