Another season means Hallmark puts out, in this case, a quartet of new romantic-comedies. In Nature of Love, Chesapeake Shores, Emilie Ullerup plays Katie; a journalist who also happens to operate best as a city girl, the only “jungle” she knows. When her latest writing assignment leads her to be given a piece on a “Glamping” experience, she doesn’t count on it becoming so up close and personal.
Once there, Katie’s tour guide Will (Christopher Russell), a man who’s more than first impression, is someone who interests her, only the trouble is a: she’s a city girl, and b: he’s not into journalists. What he doesn’t know is that’s precisely what Katie is…
TV SHOW REVIEW | ‘Outmatched,’ Season One TV Review: A Sitcom to Make You Happy
I’ve only seen one other title in this block of programs, so I don’t think I can say that I have any favorite, but this one is, as usual, fun. I know I’m kind of a broken record saying this, but when it comes to this network, or anytime I say I enjoyed a film, this is true. Even if it is only for its “fun” value. As someone who’s kind of “over” the small town trend, I can see that this gives a bit of that feel for those who like it, without actually being set in such a place.
There’s some pretty scenery though some of the production gets creative given Ullerup’s real-life pregnancy while filming this. There’s some obvious scenes when a double is used, but the enjoyment of this story is still there. The experience of high-class camping is a trendy thing that fits perfectly with the current culture, plus it just makes for a fun little plot.
Ullerup is, as usual, a delight to watch perform; she has a natural talent that makes her characters feel like best friends. Though he’s familiar to the network, it’s been a while since I saw Christopher Russell in anything, but he and Ullerup have a nice, easy-going on-screen chemistry. They share some sweet moments and the supporting characters help to keep things fun and cute.
In the end, Nature of Love might not be my most favorite of the bunch (though I know, I’ve seen a lot), but it’s a fun adventure, and it’s sure to make you smile in the signature way only a Hallmark romance can.
