Before You Say I Do
Network: Hallmark Channel
Original Air Date: February 14, 2009
In a situation when every second counts, George has to rework some history in order to make sure Jane ends up with him and doesn’t make the same mistake twice. Jennifer Westfeldt and Lauren Holly costar in the time-twisting romantic comedy.
I wasn’t sure about this one when I saw the promo of.. The guy going back in time to “get the the Girl” but I couldn’t help myself from instantly liking it. Maybe it was the characters or their witty conversations! I was laughing so hard… especially at how different life was in 1999 when George Murray went back in time to try to capture the woman who he knew was the love of his life, Jane.
There are a few cautions with this one, however. Jane’s friend, Mary, although misguided and laughable in her future predictions, often says things about being psychic. This didn’t bother me much due to the fact that she was very wrong in her ideas. Also, there are no sexual situations but an unmarried couple does fall asleep next to one another twice. There is a mention, however, that Jane’s first husband had a fling with the wedding planner.
Children will probably not be entertained with this one… and I don’t recommend this one for them. However, if you ever loved Back to the Future, Bridal Fever, or Father of the Bride… then this is the kind of movie you should easily love!
The best part of the movie is when George Murray and Mary are trying to catch Jane’s first husband in the act of cheating… but he overhears them and does not follow through with the fling as planned and George is perplexed as to why things didn’t replay now as they had in the past and Mary simply says – “Maybe he’s from farther in the future than you.” This line is so hilarious – I was laughing out loud so hard! The casting was great – the writing was superb! I loved it! Hopefully, you will, too!
See or Skip: See! It's a perfectly sweet Romantic Comedy!
