Focusing on friendship (and snippets of romance because duh), The Love Club: Nicole’s Pen Pal is a cute movie.
The Love Club: Nicole’s Pen Pal (2022) Hallmark Film Review
Running on fumes and some romantic entanglements gone wrong, Nicole (Brittney Bristow) is ready for college life to be done. Trouble is, she is disappointed by a possible love match gone wrong. She’s not the only one though on this lonely New Year’s Eve. Someone stands up Tara (Camille Stopps) on a blind date; Lauren (Chantel Riley) must decide whether giving her boyfriend Peter another chance is worth it; and Sydney (Lily Gao) is ready to go back to the ex she’s broken up with one too many times. Their chance meeting reminds them of who they are and what they are looking for, and becomes a friendship that lasts for ten years…

Trying some new things is part of the more recent motto of Hallmark. At least on their entertainment side. This one takes the same (but different) idea of the network’s Wedding Veil movies by using friendship as the main element. I did enjoy this film overall and do think it’s fun and yet, I think the scenes between the women are a little too “giddy” for me.
What I do really enjoy is seeing Chantel Riley in this after knowing her as Trudy from the Canadian mystery series Frankie Drake Mysteries. It’s nice to see her outside of that now cancelled show (and with a cliffhanger, too) plus Brittany Bristow has many a fan as well. Especially on Hallmark after playing many a supporting character from best friend to assistant. Plus you’ll see Marcus Rosner too, another familiar name and face.
‘Nicole’s Pen Pal’ marks the first of four in this The Love Club series. It’s fun… enough, so that I’ll likely continue with the movies. It’s just not a favorite from the network.
