June in January is another Hallmark chick flick which comes out with a cookie cutter plot and some bland but good looking leads and a small budget.
Alex is a rising lawyer and from a wealthy family. June always planned a dream wedding with her late mother in June. However a job in another city means that they bring forward the wedding to January and have only a few days to plan the wedding. The cog in the wheel is Alex's mother (Marilu Henner) who has her own wedding agenda and shuts out June, she is aided by her new assistant who carries a torch for Alex.
Alex takes little interest in the wedding planning, eventually realises that her mother is domineering and he is at risk of losing his bride. After a brief showdown, the mother eventually has a change of heart.
The film is breezy and inoffensive. Its also very predictable and not very good. The director shows little flair, the script is by the numbers.
