The Makeover resally good movie
I was very pleased to see an Americanized version of My Fair Lady. The switch in roles was neat. The acting was great. Julia Stiles was her usual good self. Camryn Manheim has been a favorite of mine since her role in Ghost Whisperer. The roles changing from Prof. Higgins to Hannah Higgens and Eliza Dolittle to Elliot Dolittle worked well. Watching Hannah change from a cold fish to a befuddled woman confused by her feelings for someone totally out of her comfort range was funny and delightful.
I haven't found a Hallmark movie I didn't like. Some more than others. I just wish all of your movies were available on dvd. I already have a large collection but want more. Great job.

Liked the storyline twist and the actors and locations. Nicely filmed. As good as the Good Witch DVD. Wish I could buy the Good Witch DVDs as well.

The Makeover- Not up to other Hallmark movie standards
Very cute and great Boston scenes, but there was no chemistry between the leads. I didn't care if they lived, died, or fell in love.
A better leading man would have helped. His Boston accent was so forced.
I bought this movie because I'm related to one of the extras in this film. He looked fantastic.
On a positive note, it is very clean and pretty family friendly. A few funny lines, too.

Excellent movie. I enjoyed the actors and I think they did a great job. I watched it twice already.

This was a great movie! It was a tiny bit predictable, but still very good. The cast of characters were good, too. I especially enjoyed Camryn Manheim's role. It's a great "date night" movie.

A Modern My Fair Lady
After getting pass the first slow 10 minutes of the movie, the plot picked up and I was undoubtedly hooked. The movie was well paced, with a nice balance of humor and drama. To be honest, I thought I would be bored since I'm not into politics, but the political aspects were fascinating. The actors matched their characters perfectly and made them so relateable. I found David Walton perfect in his role as Elliot Doolittle. He was so cute and a sweetheart that you can't help but fall in love with him. Hannah was harder to warm up to. She didn't change as much as I expected. I was slightly disappointed in the lack of opportunities to make her less stiff. The subtle chemistry between Elliot and Hannah was nicely done. However, I was pretty down that there wasn't alot of romance. The movie was too focused on the campaign to really focus on them.
Hallmark has done it again. A sweet, wholesome romance movie for the whole family to enjoy. This is a clean movie. They only kissed once at the end of the movie. If you are currently loving the Hallmark movies, you have to add this gem to your collection. If you are expecting something with a lot of depth and not the usual romance movie, pass this one by. I highly recommend this movie. I'm definitely going to watch this one over and over.
