Making its debut elsewhere, this unusual romantic comedy features a Hallmark star, which is appropriate since its about to debut on the favorite network.
How to Train Your Husband (2017) TV Review
A successful marriage counselor, Jillian James (Julie Gonzolo) doesn’t recognize that the marriage she may be in need of fixing is her own. Her husband, Justin (Jonathan Chase) finally has enough, and leaves their home. All of which comes in the aftermath of a rough patch that Jillian refuses to recognize.
Operating from a place she never expects to be in, Jillian works to discover if this is to be a permanent change or if it’s something they can heal. Or if, the many misunderstandings that stand in the way will be their downfall.
As the title suggest, this is really something of a tongue in cheek comedy that plays by unusual “games” to inspire cute trope antics. Something which How to Train Your Husband excels in doing.
BOOK REVIEW | ‘Stay with Me’: One Lovely Romance Novel of Redemption
On one random weekend night, I watched this with my mother because we’re all about fun comedies that have a Hallmark Channel effect. Available on Amazon Prime, I’m not sure where this made a debut, but it’s a good fit for its latest network. The plot closely mirrors the romantic-comedy If A Man Answers. It’s so much alike that it works as a kind of re-make even if I don’t see it tagged as a re-make. Something I just learned since I recently watched the 1960s film.
Gonzolo is a solid player in these roles though I don’t recall seeing Jonathan Chase in anything before this. It’s not something I see often, but I do like that this is a marriage story. The love story is always better as a result. In the end, this is another cute romance for us to enjoy. However, just in case you’re still on the fence, did I mention there is an adorable puppy, too?
