You will start to feel little to no sympathy for the couple and cheer the Evil Doctor on. This is the Lifetime movie you have been waiting for. So, grab some wine, DVR, and watch it twice to relive the craziest moments. But don’t miss one second, or you will miss the crucial set up for the entire movie.
I give it 5 out of 5 stars

Party Mom – Review
Party Mom – LMN – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Brittany is the new girl in town but she has made a new friend Ashley. Ashley invites her to a pool party at her mom’s huge home. Brittany is in awe of the home and Ashley’s mom, Jackie. Jackie has dubbed herself the “Party Mom”. She throws parties because the sun came up, supplies alcohol, and has people over 24 hours a day. Brittany loves Jackie’s carefree lifestyle and wishes her mom Caroline would be more like Jackie. But Ashley has grown tired of her mom’s partying ways and want her mom to relax more like Caroline. When Caroline gets a whiff of Jackie’s lifestyle, she restricts Brittany’s interaction with Ashley causing Brittany to sneak out.

Caroline and Gary find Ashley has been thrown from a crashed car and the only survivor. Now Caroline and Gary are on the warpath to end the Party Mom’s ways. Come jail or gunshot.
This movie will make you yell at the screen but in a good way. You will be shocked at the party mom’s behavior before and after her trial. Even after hearing the toughest news imaginable, her reaction will leave you stunned and dismayed. This actress has succeeded in making you so angry at her character, you forget she is acting. But while everything is going on, you see that Ashley is embarrassed and even disgusted by her mother’s actions. Even though Brittany wants her mom to change. Brittany will earn that the grass may be greener but its loaded with manure. So get ready to spit out your wine and get mad.
I give it 4 out of 5 stars

That’s what I love about you. You are so unaware of everything going on around you – Ashley

With a pair of new boots, a woodpecker, a phone, and one overacting boyfriend, the truth will come to light.
To sum up this movie: Slow and predictable. Even by Hallmark standards, this movie just follows the formula too much. It offers little laughs and minuscule reactions to big reveals. It just doesn’t give more than the expected “leave town and love behind to find them later” storyline. This movie is background noise for your day.
I give it 2 out of 5 stars

No plan survives contact with the enemy – Ms. Bennet

This a sweet comedy with a secondary couple you will not see coming. You won’t see it because you will cheer on another secondary couple but when a history is revealed; your dreams will go to the waist side. Although it does supply the typical Hallmark romance, there is a lot to be desired with quick quips and jabs. This movie is good for a quick laugh and a decent story.
I give it 3 out of 5 stars
