There’s a lot going on in Becca’s life. Not only is she about to take over the insurance company her parents built, she’s also walking down the aisle – again. This time it’s for her cousin’s wedding as she continues her walk as “always the bridesmaid.” But it’s okay, because Becca (Rachel Boston) is happy. She’s proud of her family’s company, even if it isn’t her passion.
Her already good life becomes a little more interesting when she meets Kyle Taylor (Paul Campbell). A wedding photographer, Kyle is hired to shoot the latest wedding opposite Becca’s maid of honor. As a filmmaker, her uncle wants every single event of his little girl’s wedding festivities preserved. This means that whether she likes it or not, Becca and Kyle are about to spend a great deal of time together.
The Last Bridesmaid (2019) Hallmark Review
This is like a compilation of all the fun romantic-comedies we enjoy. But the primary story it’s best reminiscent of is 27 Dresses. Since that’s easily a favorite of mine, naturally it’s fun to see what Hallmark does with the concept of the “always a bridesmaid, never a bride” motto. Happily, this one is easily one of the most entertaining I’ve seen.
TV FILM REVIEW | Sister of the Bride – Whirlwind Romance Leads to ‘I Do’
Unlike some of the adorable, but formulaic TV scripts, this one gives its heroine a unique hobby, which is jewelry making. Not only is this on trend (in a world of Etsy shops, and handmade goods), but it’s also a creative outlet that’s fun. Another thing I admire is that Becca is so respectful of her parent’s legacy, and that the dreaded love triangle doesn’t take shape.
Acting is good from the main cast as well as the supporting; you’ll spy all of the familiar Hallmark Channel faces. I like Paul’s character in this one quite well. He plays a good leading man to Rachel’s Becca; and that’s always something to applaud as is the old-fashioned romance of these scripts.
Beautiful settings, and fun wedding planning to-dos keep the film looking pretty and humorous. Plus, it never hurts to see an ending that’s extremely swoony. In the end, The Last Bridesmaid is one of those films that may go unnoticed in comparison to its dance partners, but it’s without question a charmer.#TVMOVIE REVIEW: @HallmarkChannel’s, ‘The Last Bridesmaid’ - A Girl, A Dress and #Romance Click To Tweet
