My Review:

I liked this movie! I didn’t absolutely love it, but I certainly didn’t hate it either. Hunter King is great and I love her so much. I’m not blaming it on her for sure. Something was off with the chemistry between her and Chandler Massey, and to me, they just were not a couple that worked at all. But the movie was a fun time and I’d probably watch it again!

Plot

Maggie is a professional bridesmaid that gets hired to be in the wedding for the mayor’s daughter, Alexis. She’s to make things run smoothly and perfectly for the bride, all behind the scenes. Meaning she has to assume a new identity and can’t tell anyone her true name, especially with the mayor coming up on an election year.

Henry is a reporter that’s been ordered to cover the wedding and he’s used to more hard-hitting journalism. He continuously tries to get a meeting with the mayor to talk about “real issues” and he’s relentless on trying to get an interview with the mayor.

Actors

I adore Hunter King. And she’s had a BUNCH of movies this past year for Hallmark including “Hidden Gems”, “Nikki and Nora: Sister Sleuths”, and “A Royal Corgi Christmas”. Chandler Massey was newer to me too. He’s been in quite a few Hallmark movies recently, including “Heart of the Matter”, “A Tale of Two Christmases”, and last year’s big Christmas hit, “Next Stop, Christmas.” Oh, and he’s been on a little daytime show called DAYS OF OUR LIVES for the last 13 years!!!!

The Bottom Line

This movie was fine. I thought the chemistry between the lead actors was a little meh. Nothing super special there. I did love the friendship that blossomed between the bride and Maggie. That was a fun part of the story. And I enjoyed the movie. But I think there was a chance for this to be really great and it fell a little short of that for me.

Hot Takes!

Here’s a quick look at what the Deck The Hallmark Podcast Fellas thought about his movie:

  • Bran – “I like Hunter King and I really like Chandler Massey. But this movie was not interesting. Unfortunatley, aside from liking the leads, I didn’t like a lot else about this movie. It was kind of a snooze. Eh, it was fine.”
  • Brian – “This movie was heavy on the wedding facts. It was shot very nicely. On paper the story was nice but it didn’t translate to the movie. It was boring, I wanted more drama. I wanted more of the ensemble cast.”
  • Dan – “I would call this movie inoffensively bad. It doesn’t make any ginormous mistakes, but it’s just kinda there. It’s not doing a whole lot. It’s shot well. I like Hunter King and Chandler Massey just fine, but the movie doesn’t do anything to stand out in a good way or a bad way.”

Location, Location, Location

“The Professional Bridesmaid” was filmed in Vancouver, British Colombia, and also Langley, British Columbia (a suburb of Vancouver). This area of Canada is just gorgeous and I can’t wait till I can visit it one day soon!
