Josie Bissett and Jack Wagner in The Wedding March 2: Resorting to Love (2017)

The Inn of Happiness

Having become reunited just before she was due to get married, college sweethearts Mick Turner (Jack Wagner) and Olivia Parsons (Josie Bissett) have been regularly in touch online. And with it being summer season Mick is turning his attention from playing with his band to the running of his Willow Lake Inn which since a competitor opened up has been failing, something his daughter and her boyfriend are not backwards in telling him. Having been living a bachelor lifestyle for so long Mick isn't sure if he is ready for a steady commitment despite missing Olivia when ever they don't see each other. And that becomes all the more complicated by the fact that she wants to work with Mick as a business partner in turning around the fortunes of the Inn and then see where things go romantically.

I was going to say that "The Wedding March 2: Resorting to Love" is what happens to a couple at the end of a Hallmark romantic comedy as it is a sequel to "The Wedding March". But that would be incorrect as instead this is a comedy about a middle aged man who is kind of set in his ways and not keen on change suddenly being confronted by a whole wave of change and confusing feelings. It starts when his daughter returns home with a boyfriend in tow and is followed by his high school sweetheart who he has only just rekindled some sort of romance with showing up to work alongside him as a business partner. And basically everyone wants to change the Willow Inn and make it a destination for weddings. It is all kind of fun but also kind of obvious as Mick comically struggles with all these changes which include requests for him to sing at a young couple's wedding.

The things if that whilst "The Wedding March 2: Resorting to Love" is some typically pleasant Hallmark romantic comedy fun it isn't overly memorable. In fact this is very much on a par with the first movie which was as equally unmemorable to the point I wasn't entirely sure I had even watched it and had to dig through my reviews just to find out if I had let alone find out what I thought of it. That isn't though a criticism as very few Hallmark rom coms are that memorable and the combo of Jack Wagner and Josie Bissett are an entertaining distraction who work well with a young couple who book the Inn for their wedding.

What this all boils down to is that "The Wedding March 2: Resorting to Love" is simply a fun Hallmark romantic comedy which actually feels like someone had an idea for a rom-com and found a way to use two characters from an earlier movie. The thing is that whilst fun it isn't overly memorable and as such if some how the characters of Mick and Olivia returned for another movie I know I would have to check what I thought of this movie first.
