What a surprise...
Well, initially I must admit that I didn't really expect much from the 2010 movie "Growing the Big One", given the movie's synopsis, the fact that it was a Hallmark movie and because it had Shannen Doherty in the lead. But still, despite it having the ultimate recipe for being sappy, I ended up sitting down to watch it.
And while the movie definitely was a predictable romantic movie, then it actually turned out to be entertaining. So you can't just judge a book (or movie) by its cover. I have to admit that I actually enjoyed the movie for what it turned out to be. Sure, this was as predictable as sappy as these Hallmark movies tend to be, but it was still a watchable movie nonetheless.
"Growing the Big One" actually had a nice cast ensemble, and Shannen Doherty was quite good in the role in this movie. So hats off to her. And I also think that Kavan Smith was quite nicely cast for the role. This movie was primarily an all unknown cast for me, so that was definitely something I enjoyed.
You know what you get when you sit down to watch director Mark Griffiths's 2010 movie, for better or worse.
My rating of "Growing the Big One" is a six out of ten stars. Don't let the movie's presentation fool you, like it did me, because it was actually an adequately enjoyable movie.
