Wendy inherits her estranged father’s winery. While learning the business, she battles with a neighboring competitor, while unknowingly falling for the competitor’s son. Starring Marla Sokoloff, Amanda Righetti, Barry Watson, Christopher Lloyd
This film is not one of Hallmark’s better films. The writing leaves much to be desired. Also, I struggled to differentiate actresses Marla Sokoloff and Amanda Righetti in the beginning. They both act well, but they looked so much alike, I kept thinking they were sisters and not friends, which made the story confusing at times.
They start out as irresponsible, partying, drinking, hooking up women, only to suddenly transform themselves into smart and savvy businesswomen in solid relationships, with no transition time or impetus to support it.
The only saving grace to this film was Christopher Lloyd, who played the wacky competitor. I enjoyed his performance and the son refused to turn against his father. However, this wasn’t enough to make this worth watching. It is a pass for me.
