‘SOUTH BEACH LOVE’: A SWEET & ENTERTAINING NEW VIBE FOR HALLMARK

October 25, 2021 2 Comments

Most of their premieres are all about hometown, quiet settings. But once in a while, the writers at Hallmark throw us for a loop and write something like South Beach Love.

South Beach Love (2021) Hallmark TV Film Review

Running her own restaurant as chef has been a dream of Sara’s for a long time. But in the getting here, Sara (Taylor Cole) had some detours. Now she operates one with a unique and fun atmosphere, all while planning for her niece’s quinceañera. As an Irish girl, Sara doesn’t exactly know a lot about the traditional Cuban foods of the family her brother married into over fifteen years ago. As a creative, she’s always eager to learn and for her niece, Lola, she’s willing to play chef to 100+ guests.

Coinciding with Lola’s event is that of her former best friend, and niece of Sara’s ex. Over ten years ago, Tony (William Levy) and Sara had big plans; plans that included business and personal. Now he’s back and their plans may still have a spark.

This is one of the Fall Harvest titles that surprisingly, was still on my DVR. I expected it to be missing since the Hallmark network tosses any season but Christmas aside from here on in. Needless to say I’m glad to have seen this one as it was one I was curious about. In the end, this isn’t my most favorite, but I appreciate much about this title.

There’s a new kind of energy to this film. Largely this is due in thanks to the setting, which is Florida. Everything I see suggests it’s actually filmed in Florida as well and I think that’s always way more authentic to see the story film in its setting. Sadly, while the same traditional things are here (family, romance, values), there’s something I don’t love about this title. I’m also quite sad about this.

Taylor Cole’s styling is pretty cute and classy which I love, however I don’t love the new network face in leading man William Levy. I wanted to, but he just didn’t quite work. That said, again, like 90 some percent of titles on Hallmark, South Beach Love is another charmer. There’s lots of color and “pop,” and the old school values, too. All in all, it’s still a cute 90 minutes.
