My Hallmark Obsession

Bad Date Chronicles: Hallmark Movie Review

My Hallmark Christmas Movie Showdown Peeps will totally get it, but for those of you who didn’t join my Hallmark Christmas Movie Bracket this past year….here’s the thing:  

I LOVE HALLMARK MOVIES.  I don’t care if you think they are cheesy or predicable.  I will watch them all.  Even if they suck (which some do).  I love LOVE.  I love happy endings.  So, come along for the feels of Hallmark with me.  I’ve got a ranking system all planned out….Enjoy!

Oh boy.

If this is your first Hallmark Movie review/recap with me, I’m going to apologize right now.

It’s not good.

In fact, I’m going to take a bold stance here and tell you to go back to Christmas, Winterfest, OR Love Ever After movies from this past season…like, ANY OF THEM and start watching there. This was one of the WORST things I’ve watched in a very long time.

As I started watching this I had an odd feeling……I felt like I’ve seen this movie before. The plot sounded so familiar….This couldn’t possibly be a brand new movie, right? So, I googled it….and SURE ENOUGH. I HAD seen it before! UGH!

Didn’t like it then either. :/ Sorry Hallmark Lovers….this one just didn’t live up to the content they’ve been putting out lately.

The thing is, if you can get past Connor’s Milk Mustache…..I mean, I’m sorry, I’m trying not to be petty….but dude’s got a dirty upper lip…if you are possibly able to turn your attention away from that for even a minute…you’ll be as disappointed as I was to realize that was one of the most intriguing parts of this whole movie.

Friends, if you have a boss that meddles in your personal relationships as much as these two…quit immediately. It’s wrong in so many levels. I don’t even care that they tried to redeem these characters later on, it didn’t work. I still don’t like them at all.

I really wanted to like this movie…the concept just didn’t work…it gave me so few Happy vibes I struggled to power through. It was the typical “Hallmark” movie that give Hallmark movies a bad rap.

So here’s how I’m going to break it down:
5 categories, 5 hearts possible in each
barely there, even the big moment at the end felt weird
I wish I could give it a half of one heart. It was cheesy.
Bosses could not be redeemed. Friends…I just didn’t buy your side romance.
uncomfortable, and a bit angry to be honest
this is the highest ranking out of all and only because I was surprised that the Connor and Leigh actually were adult enough to confront each other face to face many times there was a misunderstanding.

6/25 ❤️. Would not recommend 😒
