Storyline: "Leigh runs the website "Bad Date Chronicles," which allows people to anonymously post horrible date experiences. When rival blogger Conner becomes the subject of one of her posts, they agree to date each other to see which one is the 'bad dater'."

More via PixL: "Leigh’s (Merritt Patterson) job consists of publishing her viewer’s mortifying dates on her column, The Bad Date Chronicles, until she has a bad date of her own with a rival newspaper’s editor, Connor (Justin Kelly). When Leigh shares her date with The Bad Date Chronicles readers, Connor heads over to Leigh’s office to demand an apology. Leigh refuses to apologize, so Connor decides to publish his version of their date on his website. Things take a turn for the worse when Leigh’s boss and Connor’s boss notice the increased numbers of views to their websites since the battle of the sexes have been published. Connor and Leigh agree to go on another date and write about it in their columns. Leigh and Connor must make a decision if the next story they publish will either showcase the truth or sabotage their love."

  1. I wish I got the Pixl channel. All of us Directv folks need to call Directv 20 times a day and ask them to add it :)

    1. Agree, Sabrina! DirecTV really needs PixL! DISH has it, so why not?

      For those of you who are not aware - PixL is a station that plays Family Movies 24-7 without commercials! Some movies are even from the Hallmark library!!! It is available through Dish, Youtube (with a subscription fee), and other cable providers, but NOT DirecTV.... yet!!! ;)

  2. Hey Net, Gina stoping by to let you know PixL updated their site with stills from the film

    1. Thank you for sharing this update, Gina - I added the three new images above! Hope you enjoy the movie!!! :)

    I think it was better than any Hallmark movie this year. Coming from someone who loves Hallmark!!!
    This movie was Funny and entertaining throughout the whole movie. With no boring parts at all. Pixl really showed with this movie that they can make movies as good as Hallmark or even better. I really enjoyed this movie
