Marry Me

With my current job, I have been working 14 and 16 hour days and had no energy for movies. I did see the DVD for Marry Me a Lifetime production written by Barbara Hall, who created Judging Amy and Joan of Arcadia. Since I like her work and this seemed like some light entertainment, I got it.

Well, it took me like two months to watch this 2 part (4 hour with commercials) romantic comedy.

Marry Me stars Lisa Liu as a social worker who’s boyfriend doesn’t propose as she hoped. Instead he announces his big news is that he’s off into the wild to photograph frogs in the wild. So she finds herself rebooting and re-evaluating her love life. Before you know it, this smart social worker who always wanted to be an artist is dating again and soon has three attractive men pursuing her.

I can hear you saying, “Yeah, right.” I get it and agree. Marry Me is definitely far fetched and somewhat predictable. The lessons in love aren’t new and some of the romantic lessons are just too obvious. For example, at one point Liu is traveling around Europe with her new beau’s best friend who literally owns a castle. She’s literally walking the path of a princess. Of course, she learns that a normal life is more her style.

So Marry Me is sweet, rather too sweet. It includes some good lines, and diverts, but doesn’t quite fill the bill as entertainment. It’s just a bit too predictable and too cute.
