Part of Hallmark’s 2022 original premiere lineup, Marry Go Round will be a familiar rom-com trope to anyone who loves the genre.
Marry Go Round (2022) Hallmark TV Film Review
A busy career girl with a high powered job, Abby Foster (Amanda Schull) is making big changes in her life. She’s about to make a movie and marry the best man, Edward (Zak Santiago). Her wedding dress is perfect and her plans are going smoothly. The one wrinkle in her plan is that her teenage marriage that she thought ended in divorce was never finalized. Now he has to return to her hometown where her ex Luke (Brennan Elliott) still lives.🎠‘MARRY GO ROUND’: POPULAR ROM-COM TROPE IN HALLMARK STORY🎠 Review of 2022 film. #BrennanElliott #Movies #HallmarkMovies #Hallmark #Hallmarkies #HallmarkReview Click To Tweet
Familiar to anyone who likes romantic comedies, this plot is a cute one with more than one familiar trope. From the hometown return to still being legally married, Marry Go Round is, well, cute. The characters are likable and it’s entertaining to meet them. Edward is a cool guy rather than evil, and Amanda plays the consummate career professional perfectly.
“A journey that starts at forever and ends at never.”
The film has sweet moments between the characters and if anyone loves those hometown stories, this one is brimming with these kind of quaint moments. There’s lots of nostalgia for the characters as they relive their lives and like any TV movie, there’s a festival that is central to the plot. This isn’t a favorite of mine with little things I don’t love, and honestly, I don’t really root for Luke and Abby. As is the conclusion for almost any of the films I review from Hallmark, this is another winner if you like this genre.

Content: there’s not much to note outside of the usual TV-G content. There’s kisses and some may not care for the marriage angle trope and the about to marry someone else.
