fork in the tofu
14 September 2020 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Julia Penman (Danneel Ackles) runs an illegal fitness class at the park for moms trying to lose their baby weight. It's her 30th birthday and her sister throws her a party. She's single and hates getting set up. She's considering adoption although she's not really a baby person. She's broke. Widower Scott (Kavan Smith) shows up for her class with baby Mattie. He's overwhelmed at work and needs a nanny. His older daughter Charlotte is concerned with the newcomer.

Ackles and Smith are perfectly bland romantic leads for the Hallmark crowd. There is a moment in the movie when it could have become something compelling. It's the tofu dinner. The problem with Julia is that she's a little superficial and she's gaga over Scott for surface reasons. She could have developed something really deep with Charlotte. The fact that she missed Charlotte's cry for help only adds to that superficiality. Instead, the movie makes it Charlotte's flaw to be fixed. It's an opportunity to show Julia's motherly instincts but the movie missed it. In the end, these are perfectly adequate actors and characters in this type of movie. It could have been more.
