Sweet Home Sycamore Springs

Taylor Cole and Andrew W. Walker in Appetite for Love (2016)

After High School Mina Jones (Taylor Cole) broke up with her sports jock boyfriend and left her hometown of Sycamore Springs for a career in the big city. And a few years later and things are going well for Mina as she has a great job with International Corporate Brands and she has a handsome boyfriend who has their future mapped out. But then Mina finds herself having to go back to Sycamore Springs for work as an owner of a restaurant which her company wants to take over won't play ball and if Mina can convince the owner to sell she will be up for a promotion. Trouble is the owner of that restaurant is Clay (Andrew W. Walker), her former high school sweetheart who having inherited the restaurant when his father died will not sell. Whilst Mina won't take no for an answer it seems sparks still fly between them.

One day I will make time to wade through all my reviews of Hallmark movies to make a list of those which feature someone from the city returning to their hometown and finding sparks fly between them and their childhood sweetheart. And when I do "Appetite for Love" will be in that long list as that is all this is with of course the obligatory subplots from Mina in town on business which makes things awkward to the handsome boyfriend in the city whilst of course being back home bringing out some small town girl in her. I could go on but I would take a guess that most people who watch this will have already watched other Hallmark movies which use the same storyline and know exactly what to expect.

But like a broken record I have to say when something isn't broke why fix it and this storyline is entertaining enough for the intended audience. On that note both Taylor Cole and Andrew W. Walker have that right easy going appeal for that same audience adding to that sense of familiarity which makes it easy to watch which is part of the movie's appeal for the Hallmark movie loving crowd.

What this all boils down to is that "Appetite for Love" is just a typical Hallmark romantic comedy which re-uses that old storyline of hometown/high school love when a city girl returns home. It won't be for everyone due to its easy going nature but will work for those who enjoy Hallmark movies.
