Trivia

At one time, Emma(Renee) took a book from the book box and scanned it. The book's cover reads "Tom Stanfield's The Diary". The very book was featured in another movie of the same year, The Michaels, starring Larisa Oleynik and Brant Daugherty(who played Tom Stanfield with a photograph on the back of the book).

Horrible Portrayal of A Young Business Owner
23 October 2016 | by jarvisa-75846See all my reviews

I have no idea why this actress was chosen. Is her acting really this terrible or did the producers make her into this awful character?

As if the high pitched, whining, little girl voice wasn't enough, the female protagonist in capable of holding a logical thought or a reasonable conversation. Unable to see past her bias against the only person genuinely trying his best to improve her business. Is this how people see women? As completely closed minded (even in the face of evidence - the guy improved book sales) and done in by fantasy and whims?

No wonder she couldn't finance her bookstore on her own. The only reason this receives 2 stars instead of 1 is because some of the other actors showed some skill.

Absolutely atrocious portrayal of a young woman. I like romance as much as the other woman, but I couldn't stomach more than 20 minutes of this trash.
