The last in Hallmark’s 2015 “Countdown to Valentine’s Day” movies, All of My Heart is full of mishaps. But it’s still cute.
All of My Heart (2015) Hallmark TV Film Review
It stars TV favorite Lacey Chabert as Jenny. An aspiring chef, for now Jenny works with a catering company, which all changes when she learns she has inherited an old house. Once she makes it to the small town where the home is located, her mood is dampened by unexpected news. In actuality, she’s only half owner of the house. Turns out Brian (Brennan Elliot) also has a stake on the home. Jenny wants to keep it – she has visions of a bed and breakfast, Brian wants to sell it as soon as possible. As a successful Wall Street trader, he has no need for the home.
When things turn sideways for him, the house becomes a place to start over… for both of them.
This story is cute in a traditional way and its familiar faced cast ensures that it has that “likability” quality viewers look for. For me, I have to confess in the back of my mind I had a smidgen of reservation about the leading man because he plays a dude up to no good in a Hallmark series. Putting that aside, this is a nice story that most of us will enjoy tuning into on this Valentine’s Day. Constant in their quest to bring wholesome stories to the world of television, this script is a nice “journey” story about two people who didn’t know what they were looking for and found it in unexpected places.
TV FILM REVIEW | All Things Valentine – Advice vs Adversaries Collide in this Romance
The setting is quaint; lots of small town mannerisms and chatty, friendly residents. As the story progresses, I have to admit this blossoming romance again feel more “natural” in comparison. Some time obviously passes, and circumstances ensure the two spend a lot of time together. It’s not my favorite Hallmark romance, but is fun. Oh and I cannot sign off without mentioning those humorous scenes in whcih Brian attempts carpentry. If you’re looking for a new romantic comedy to stay in, curled up on the couch watching, this one is a good bet. It’s definitely got heart and some spunk to boot!
