‘EASTER UNDER WRAPS’: A SWEET SEASONAL STORY OF LOVE AND FAMILY

April 17, 2022 1 Comment

When it comes to films that are specific to any holiday but Christmas, they’re rare. Then once in a while, you run across something like Easter Under Wraps, a film from Hallmark about family… and of course, love, too!

Easter Under Wraps (2019) Hallmark Film Review

Despite the degrees and success at marketing her father’s company, Erin Cavendish (Fiona Gubelmann) still hasn’t found her place. Her father (Fred Henderson) runs a successful chocolate company that is entering one of its busiest seasons, Easter, but they’re encountering some bumps. With some updated equipment that is set to phase out some of the personal touches, Mr. Cavendish is concerned about what this may look like. As the face of the company, he’s unlikely to find out any real truth from employees, so instead, he sends Erin, posing as a worker named Veronica, undercover at one of their factories.

Tasked with listening to what the employees really thing, Erin sets out with the task at hand. What she discovers both surprises and energizes her, all with the help of the kind people employed at the factory.

Far as I know, this is the only Easter romantic comedy Hallmark has produced pre or post this 2019 premiere date. It’s heavy on Easter in the themes of baskets and chocolate bunnies, but not much else. That said, the film is still cute. I don’t love all of the styling or “looks,” but the colors and of course, prep of Easter candy makes it all very seasonal appropriate. Though minor, the chocolate making aspect is interesting, too.

You’ll see many more familiar faces in the cast including BJ Harrison and Brendan Penny (a fan favorite from Chesapeake Shores). It’s failing is the film leans a little too much into the you-lied trope which often leads to heavy handed moments. Nonetheless, there’s plenty of bunny rabbits, real and chocolate, and cute moments between the actors. Plus, the little mishaps that pop up as Erin tries to keep her cover are really fun, too!

Overall, the script keeps everything light and fun, and of course, just as with everything on the network, things are happy in the end.
