Jennifer's Going Through the Motions

Lori Loughlin in Garage Sale Mystery: The Wedding Dress (2015)

It's just another day for Jennifer (Lori Loughlin) as she heads to an estate where everything is up for sale and along with her business partner and daughter they return back to their shop with a range of goodies including an old wedding dress. The discovery of a blooded secret pocket spikes Jennifer's curiosity and as she sets about discovering who once owned it she stumbles across an old mystery involving a groom who just seemed to disappear, never to be heard off again.

So far I have enjoyed the "Garage Sale Mystery" movies as whilst only a stereotypical take on the civilian turning investigator theme they have had a light entertaining side which has managed to keep them entertaining. Sadly "Garage Sale Mystery: The Wedding Dress" doesn't quite have the same vibe and I hate to say it but this 4th "Garage Sale Mystery" feels like it is going through the motions with a story built up of scenes which are only there because they worked in the earlier movies.

As such what we get in "Garage Sale Mystery: The Wedding Dress" is Jennifer snooping, going to the library to look through the records, asking questions and trying to hide things from her husband Jason. In a way if I stumbled across this before watching the previous movies I might find it more entertaining but having watched the previous three movies all it seems now is too typical and a bit of variation is needed. And even more sadly is the fact the mystery surrounding the disappearing groom and the wedding dress isn't enough to keep your interest.

Of course there are other things going on; there is Jennifer's daughter's romantic tribulations but these are not that interesting and there is as already hinted at Jennifer trying to keep her amateur detective work a secret from her husband. But none of this is that entertaining that it adds a layer of freshness to what ends up a too familiar movie.

What this all boils down to is that as of writing "Garage Sale Mystery: The Wedding Dress" is the last movie in the series and I hope they don't make another as the characters have run their course and now it just feels like they are going through the motions. For some that won't be an issue but for me it just felt like all those involved in "Garage Sale Mystery: The Wedding Dress" were just going through the motions.
