  2. I thought Harvest Moon was really cute, though I'm not sure why it had to end with an engagement when, as far as we saw, they hadn't even been on an actual date yet. Though maybe there were some deleted scenes because we saw him kiss her on the cheek once, like, maybe they were dating but we never saw it. It seemed to jump straight from he hates her and can’t stand to think of anyone but his deceased wife and boom, he loves her. Anyway, I have zero issue with keeping it G-rated, but just end with a big romantic kiss. Why do you have to jump to marry me? Maybe I’ve seen too many Hallmark movies lately but they really seem to endorse spur-of-the-moment marriage which, let’s face it, does not usually have a romantic happy ending in real life. I’m not looking for real veracity in these, but a tiny bit of common sense every now and again would be nice. New romance is romantic enough, we don’t need every movie to end with a guy down on one knee to be wholesome.

    Anyway, Jesse Schram was cute and quirky and really held the story together. Unfortunately, I thought the male lead could definitely have been better. He struck me as handsome enough but fairly personality-free, and I'm not sure if that's the writing or the actor, but it detracted from the film.

      Jesse Hutch (the lead actor) played the same sort of character in his movie "Let It Snow," with Candace Cameron Bure. So I expected that kind of acting style from him, I suppose. I guess people either like him in his roles or don't.

      The story fast-forwarded one year from when she decided to not sell the farm (when she got the offer for the cream), so even though we didn't see the dating scenes, we are to assume that Jen and Brett were together that whole time, for that whole year. I felt that the proposal after one year made much more sense than the proposals I have seen in some of the other movies, which seemed to come after a short time.

  3. I guess I missed the one-year-later bit, which does make it make more sense. I hadn't recognized the actor from Let It Snow, but probably because I also recall that lead being extremely unremarkable (ok, very dull and wooden) in an otherwise cute film.

    Hallmark definitely seems to focus on the actresses over the actors in these movies.

      I think there is definitely more variety in the actresses than in the actors, even if just in physical appearance alone (not to mention acting ability), and they each seem to bring their own special qualities to the roles.

      Too often I think it's easy to mistake one male actor for another, as they can sometimes seem wooden or cookie cutter-ish and don't really stand out, but the actresses are more easily discernible. For example, no one is going to mistake Alicia Witt for Katrina Law, or Candace Cameron Bure for Sarah Lancaster. They're all different -- somehow they all manage to fit into the Hallmark mold and vibe for the movies, but they are not carbon copies of each other (which is good).

  4. They all mostly have SOME name recognition from former projects (usually TV series) which, with the occasional exception (Brandon Routh last year, Dean Cain in years past, Eric Mabius, etc.), the men do not. Usually they are working, often Canadian actors who probably live in/near the location shoot. Generically handsome, but you can tell they spent the money on the ladies.
