3years is a long time.. This movie felt like 3 years long.
I found acting by the lead actress to be lackluster and paled in comparison to the lead male who she is supposed to marry. She seemed to be almost devoid of emotion(which for her occupation, in a way, seemed fitting. Still, It all seemed a bit too modern for me to believe it is the time period of the old west. The costumes and settings were the only thing reminiscient of the time period.
I haven't seen a Hallmark movie lately, but I seem to remember that this is kind of how they are, all the characters mostly reminiscient of others in their movies (lacking in much personality or substance). although this one was more down-to-earth and not all lovey-dovey, it was the same boring style.
Ha, one quote from the main character, "I know that if I tried to live on principles, I would have died a long time ago," was totally unexpected, but true to the story and I'm sure applies to many ppl with life situations similar to hers. This seems like the opposite of what most Hallmark movies stand for, but basically sums up this one.
Every time a chance for engaging/emotional/substantial conversation comes up between the couple, the scene is cut short, rather annoying, and basically any connection to the characters has to be imagined.
Became monotonous and horribly predictable about halfway thru but I grudgingly--and painstakingly- finished it.
There is a great scene at the end and the overall message of not being hung up on money is positive--but it just drug on...
