‘Appetite for Love’ – Favorite Andrew Walker in Reunion Romance

February 6, 2016 1 Comment

Unlike previous weekend’s, this go round, Hallmark debuts only one new original. This time we see familiar faces co-star in a delicious new romantic-comedy, Appetite for Love. Cute as this one is, I must say I think my favorite, Dater’s Handbook remains the top ranked.

Appetite for Love (2016) Hallmark TV Review

Returning to her small Southern hometown is the last thing Mina (Taylor Cole) wants to do. She is made for the hustle-bustle of the big city and Atlanta is where she thrives. As an executive at a prominent company, Mina’s latest assignment is about to be her best career move and worst enemy. Her boss has just handed her an important account involving helping a small-town diner re-brand… back in her hometown.

Worse still, her ex-boyfriend, Clay (Andrew Walker) is now running the diner following the death of his father. What Clay doesn’t realize is, his father made the acquisition deal with Mina’s company. Fighting her all the way, Clay refuses to comply with any of the new rules – including a new cookie-cutter menu, making Mina’s job even more confusing (and infuriating) than it already is!

TV MOVIE REVIEW | All Things Valentine (2016) – Advice vs Adversaries Collide in this Romance

Small town shenanigans, pesky exes, and Mina’s aversion for a high school nickname is the stuff Appetite for Love is made of. With its familiar leading man (Walker is in everything from Bridal Wave to Dashing Through the Snow) to its leading lady who is cast well, Hallmark again strikes a kind of nostalgic charm. In their pursuit to provide quality romantic-comedies that really are a special kind of delightful.

This one has a feel of something akin to New in Town though I like that these two characters share a past. This trope helps to make for a more realistic relationship and chemistry. Their back-and-forth banter is cute without taking the “battle” of he-said, she-said too far. So often this can become “slapstick” to the extreme. Clay’s kind ways remind Mina of all she left, which creates some great on-screen moments and scenes (this includes a certain rooftop scene); and the ways she reciprocates makes this one irresistible. Safe to say, Hallmark serves us yet another winning comedy that’s sure to be five-stars for all of us who crave this kind of wholesome entertainment.
