About the Movie
When smart, independent woman Wendy (Marla Sokoloff of THE PRACTICE, DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES) learns that her estranged father has left her a beautiful winery in California’s Napa Valley, she is thrown head-first into managing the struggling business. Along the way, she must contend with a shrewd competitor (Christopher Lloyd of BACK TO THE FUTURE) while sparks fly with her local winemaker mentor, Chris (Barry Watson of SAMANTHA WHO?, 7TH HEAVEN). But when Wendy discovers that Chris is actually her competitor’s son, she questions her true feelings and must learn to follow her heart to save the winery.
Better than I anticipated...
Ok, I'll admit I didn't have high hopes for this movie-- many of these "types" of movies disappoint and the storyline is predictable and boring. However, I was pleasantly surprised (and proven wrong)! The characters are well-developed, the story may have predictable elements but the storyline is charming and the cast does it justice. It's a fun movie that is easy to watch and has some subtle humor and twists to keep it interersting.
Rent it first...
Sadly not anywhere near as good as it could have been...
It’s predictable but the actors are charming. The fact that the script keeps referring to “San Francisco” as “San Fran” makes me laugh because most San Franciscans are horribly offended by “San Fran."
