  1. I just adore Jen Lilley, she always likes my tweets when I mention her, she is a sweetheart. I saw this commercial on Hallmark this AM during I love Lucy before I left for work. She is adorable in the movie, and Gidget is in this movie. She was also in Unleashing Mr Darcy and Walking the Dog, among a few other movies. I think this may be my favorite movie of Summer Nights, although Summer in the Vineyard may take the cake :)

    2. This movie looks super cute, and I think Lee Majors and Lindsay Wagner's appearance in it is going to be an even bigger draw for lots of viewers... especially those who remember Lee and Lindsay's shows, back in the day, or via reruns!

      It's going to be so fun to see these two together once again!

      Thanks for sharing the excitement, tvh and Misty!!!

    1. That is such a nice compliment.

      I know I certainly enjoyed Lindsay's performances in the TV movies "Thicker Than Water," "The Thanksgiving House" and "Love Finds You in Valentine."

      Thank you for sharing!

  4. Gidget the dog is one of the most prolific Hallmark stars this year. 3 movies already. She should be in some bumper ads about Fall Harvest this year. :)

    1. Yes, Gidget the dog is quite popular these days! She even has her own resume on IMDB, which says she is 9 years old (in human years!), Height: 1' 1" and she was "named after Sandra Dee's character in Gidget (1959) because she's a small but tough little lady." I love it! She an absolute scene stealer and such a little cutie! Hope we see her in more Hallmark movies!!! :)

    2. Gidget is 9 years old! Wow, she still acts just like a puppy. Hope we'll continue to see her in many more movies. She's a real star.

    1. Are you thinking of the movie, "Eat Pray Love" with Julia Roberts? The title is so close!

  6. I really loved this film. Everyone was great. And the "wrong girl" was really good at playing the wrong girl.

    But boy does the title make no sense whatsoever. Hallmark has a terrible habit of making movies with nonsensical names, but this one takes the cake for me. I suppose they ate at some point and played, but huh??? This was originally titled Countdown to Love which was actually mentioned in the movie, so I think they should've kept it, though when I read about it with that name, I had thought the movie was a New Year's Eve movie so maybe that's why they changed the name.

  7. I've never been a big fan of Hallmark movies that has "right girl VS current fiance" type of scenario. I just can never root for something like that. I wish this movie was not this kind of story line. Jen Lilley was so wonderful and funny. I just didn't like how her character kept questioning and "pushing" the male lead to break it off with the fiance because they aren't a good match, while on the other hand, it's clearly for her own benefit because she also loves him. I also didn't like how sudden it was for the male lead to bounce off from the fiance to the right girl. I know it's not a long TV series which storyline can be expanded but this storyline just doesn't have the "feel good" aspect for me, and i really wanted to like it :(

    I adoreeeeee everything else though.. especially Lindsay Wagner and Lee Majors! Their story line was more interesting and so cute! Lindsay Wagner is amazing and such a class act.

    1. Definitely agree. Not the best story. Although having Lindsay Wagner and Lee Majors trick the younger couple was a hoot!

    1. Oh, yes! He is adorable - the perfect dog to love and share! I'm not an expert on dog breeds, but to me (and this may be wrong) he looks like a rough Collie, also known as a long-haired Collie. Such a sweet dog!
