Despite its unusual trope-y mess, this romantic-comedy has a fun premise and a decent cast. Both of which makes the film more entertaining to watch.
An Hour Behind (2017) Film Review
Building her bakery business keeps Trish Harper (Emily Rose) busy. She’s a bit of a scatter brain, but baking and keeping busy is when she’s happiest. All much to the dismay of her sister who perpetually tries to set up her little sister. Her latest attempt is an attorney friend of her husband’s. The date is set and Trish makes it to Sunday morning brunch a little late, but still on time to meet “Adam.”
Only trouble is, Trish is actually meeting Parker (Barry Watson). Parker is a little bit surprised to see this stranger sit at his table and start chatting as if they have plans. Once he realizes her mistake, he plans to correct her until something about her stops him. Still healing from a trauma, Parker and Trish spend the day together, only trouble is, Trish thinks Parker is someone he’s most definitely not.‘AN HOUR BEHIND’: WHEN YOU CAN ENJOY A TIME CHANGE #MOVIES #ROMCOM #ROMANCEMOVIES #DAYLIGHTSAVINGSTIME #MOVIEREVIEW #CUTEMOVIE #CUTEMOVIES Click To Tweet
This is one of those titles that continues to crop up on my weekend scrolls through Prime. For some reason I never clicked on it, though I think this is partly due to thinking I’d seen An Hour Behind already. One night I finally hit play to realize not only have I not watched this 2017 dramady, but it’s also a cute little concept.
I don’t think it’s giving away any great spoiler to say the story centers around Daylight Savings Time which is where the more unique aspect comes in. The story always uses this to its best advantage with a longer timeline, and as always, I appreciate any movie that gives its characters more time. It never ceases to help “sell” the relationship as more authentic and genuine. The cast is good too. Barry Watson may not be everyone’s idea of a solid leading man, but I’ve liked him since the short-lived UPtv show Date My Dad. Again he fits this role well and he and Rose share a sweet girl and boy next door chemistry.
It’s safe to say I quite enjoyed An Hour Behind. Rare though it is, in this case, Prime did know a title I might like.
