Don’t Go Breaking My Heart (2021) Hallmark TV Film Review
Miranda (Italia Ricci) makes broken hearts her business. She owns and runs a kind of boot camp for those with broken hearts, and are unable to move forward. Her business model is successful helping people heal, but some are skeptical. When Ben (Ryan Paevey) is talked into going with his sister to one of Miranda’s sessions, he does so having recently been broken up with, but also distrust.
Miranda intrigues Ben, but he makes the choice not to return until his work interferes which may just cost him the friendship he didn’t know he’d need.

It’s always fun to see Ryan Paevey in any of these titles as he’s such a good leading man. I also really enjoy seeing Italia Ricci in these, too. She and Ryan are fun together as are the myriad of familiar faces you’ll see. This brings together a group that learns how to open up and fosters trust among those who must trust again. Ricci does a good job as a kind of self-help character and as usual, I thought the dance scene was cute (yes, I know, I have a thing for dance scenes). Another pro is how the characters meet. I appreciate this as it allows some separation from their, later on, professional relationship.
There is the usual break-up trope, but this one seems more authentic and if you like a kind of epilogue end, this one gives us that. There’s plenty of cute romantic antics, plus a title that’s perfectly cute and suited to this title. If you like these happy kind of romantic-comedies, make sure to add this one to your DVR. It’s dang cute.
PS: Also does this song, Don’t Go Breaking My Heart, always make you think of the cheerful Ella Enchanted credits scene? No? Just me then? Cool.
Content: There are two-three brief mentions of a same-sex relationship, but otherwise, this one is the same kind of sweet romance. The film is TV-G.
