Clashes, Chaos and Cuddles at the Campfire
Single mum, Dana (Danica McKellar - My Christmas Dream), has always been close to her son but now as he becomes a teenager they have become a little disconnected especially as she is a teacher at the school he goes to. To try and connect with him she decides they should go camping, not something she is comfortable with especially when she heads to the camping store to buy supplies only to end up becoming frustrated with laid back owner Steve (Paul Greene - A Wish for Christmas). But it appears Steve, a single father to a teenage daughter, has had the same idea when it comes to taking his daughter camping and at the camp site they discover they are neighbours with a lot more in common than they first realised.
Clashes, chaos and cuddles are the three main ingredients to "Campfire Kiss" a Hallmark movie which for fans of Hallmark movies will be a pleasure to watch. But of course we are talking two other typical things which spring to mind when you mention Hallmark movies, they are predictable and formula driven. As such whilst "Campfire Kiss" is without a doubt an entertaining family movie it doesn't hold many surprises or strays too far from that familiar Hallmark movie formula.
What does that all mean? Well in "Campfire Kiss" we initially have clashes in personalities between single parents Dana and Steve who of course end up bonding not just romantically but also when it comes to sharing their single parent struggles. We have the comedy chaos of Dana not being outdoorsy and so things don't go completely smoothly and of course the cuddles because Dane and Steve fall in love. As I said, "Campfire Kiss" doesn't hold much in the way of surprises as it is simply a predictable Hallmark movie. But it does have lashings of appeal as both Danica McKellar and Paul Greene deliver the looks and likeable nature which good Hallmark characters have whilst the various outdoor locations are beautiful which in turn enhances the stars looks as well.
What this all boils down to is that you get what you expect from "Campfire Kiss", which is all the typical elements of a Hallmark movie. For some that won't be great but for fans of Hallmark movies "Campfire Kiss" delivers all the fun and romantic charm that they watch them for.
