I have previously bypassed this movie several times because the trailers simply did not appeal to me. This has taught me that I should never solely rely on the trailers to give me a real representation of whether I will like a movie or not.
True to Hallmark style, this romantic movie is somewhat predictable when Kelly Leone meets Tom Malone, but the story is unique.
It is clear from the beginning that they are attracted to each other. However, due to Kelly's New Year's resolution to say "yes" to more social event invitations, their relationship doesn't start with Tom asking her out. He doesn't want her to feel forced to accept. Of course, nothing says Kelly can't pursue Tom. After all, Tom is not bound by any resolution. Plus, they have several upcoming social events in common.
Not only did I enjoy the romantic story, I also found myself laughing over several of the scenes. Truly a nice break and a great way for Hallmark lovers to start the new year.
A New Year's Resolution Movie Synopsis
A New Year's ResolutionKelly Leone is a dedicated morning show producer who has spent the last year working long hours and focusing on getting better ratings for her show. Now that she has finally gotten the show in a safe zone, she decides it is time for her to focus on her personal life. While her friends have been extremely understanding and patient with her busy work life, they do express how much they have missed her and want her back. Kelly recognizes that she has really missed out on some of the changes in their lives, plus the combination of "small moments that makes up the big important stuff in life".
Because of these revelations, Kelly decides to change her standard New Year's resolution. She commits herself to her friends and vows that she will accept any social invitation offered to her until her birthday in February. Her friends don't hesitate to start offering those social invitations, starting with a cold New Year's Day Polar Plunge into Lake Michigan. Other social invitations include the Blizzard Obstacle Course, speed dating, curling, and facing her greatest fear, a magician.
When the morning show cast hears of her resolution, they decide to make her the "star" of their new story. They follow her through her events and film her experiences for the show. Kelly prefers to be in the background, off camera, but she makes an adorable focus for the new series, as well as for this fun Hallmark movie.
