Movie Description: Poppy Summerall is hired near Halloween as a temporary nanny by Ryan Lawson, a widowed, work-obsessed executive. Through a series of adventures, the eternally optimistic Poppy sets out to teach Ryan and his two young children what’s important in life – unconditional love, family and the joy of everyday occurrences.
- Anytime the kids were with Poppy and their dad (walking to school together, playing football, spending Halloween together.) I loved it ALL!
- Poppy’s sometimes “quirky” behavior.
- The workaholic father, who gets his priorities in check.
- There was only one scene that bothered me in this movie. The scene where Poppy is passing out candy to the trick-or-treaters, and there are two kids who are wearing identical outfits as Zoey and Zach. She then starts rambling to them about how they looked like her friends and that Ryan is the man for her. I would have liked to see her realization play out in a different way.
My overall thoughts on this movie: I thought “October Kiss” was an enjoyable movie. I loved the two leads, and their moments together were adorable. When they were joking with each other about how they looked like an old married couple, and then danced. Seeing their feelings for each other was quite sweet. It was nice to see Poppy and the children’s relationship grow. When Zoey and Zach tell Poppy they love her, and she loves them, with Ryan overhearing is perfect! I’ve seen this movie several times, and my feelings for this movie haven’t changed. I still have fun watching this movie whenever it’s on Hallmark.
Would I recommend this movie to others: It was cute, so yes.
My rating: Even though I enjoyed this movie, it’s not one of my favorites. I’m giving this a 3/5 (Good)
