Signed, Sealed, Delivered: One in a Million (2016)

Kristin Booth and Eric Mabius in Signed, Sealed, Delivered: One in a Million (2016)

Signed, Sealed and Stolen

Things are never dull at the DLO with Oliver O'Toole (Eric Mabius) and his team being recruited to help in a case of mail theft with the stolen items being replaced by a wedding cake, can of beans and a goose. But the guys are also asked by a waitress to help retrieve a rather valuable letter she posted to her boyfriend just before he dumped her as it contains a winning lottery ticket. And it seems her letter is one of those which has been stolen and she fears the mail thief might open it. Meanwhile Oliver and Shane (Kristin Booth) find themselves dealing with the awkwardness of trying to be more than just friends and work colleagues when they go out for a meal together.

All the "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" tend to start off a bit daft and seemingly going off on tangents and "Signed, Sealed, Delivered: One in a Million" is no different. We go from a flashback scene of an awkward date between Oliver and Shane to Oliver being called to the main office where he learns of mail theft with items which are stolen replaced by some daft things such as a goose. But of course part of the joy of this is the discovery of how these daft, seemingly random things all end up coming together. On that subject I won't divulge too much other than like a serial killer taunting and FBI agent it seems that these acts of mail theft are targeting Oliver as they all link to the name O'Toole and yes it is worth watching if you have enjoyed all the previous movies.

But what I will say is that whilst all the regulars deliver their usual enjoyable performances some of the supporting performances try too hard to be amusing. It is a shame as the forced comedy sticks out like a sore thumb and weakens things ever so slightly.

What this all boils down to is that as a fan of this series of movies "Signed, Sealed, Delivered: One in a Million" is still an entertaining movie but some parts of it end up being a bit off which is a shame.
