The 411 by Maria:
I just finished watching The Seven Year Hitch due on DVD March 5th. In two words, it was adorably sweet.
Jennifer and Kevin have been best friends since he moved onto her block when they were both 6. Fast forward to Jennifer graduating from college as she talks to her two friends about allowing Kevin to live with her for about two weeks while he gets his feet on the ground. Fast forward another 7 years, and we see a professional Jennifer getting ready for work while her friend Kevin hands her her lunch. They are still roommates with Jennifer moving up the career ladder, while fun loving Kevin works on a board game idea and works as a golf caddy. When Jennifer's cheating boyfriend Bryce of six months proposes, Kevin must figure out a way for Jennifer to see on her own what a bad move it would be for her.
I thought the movie was a adorable. Darin Brooks (Kevin) is charming, quirky and sweet. He reminded me of Johnny Depp in Benny and Joon without the cane and long hair. He has a sweet smile and was perfect as the long time loyal "guy" friend.
Natalie Hall as Jennifer was as adorable as Darin with her super white teeth and sweet smile.
The Seven Year Hitch is exactly what I would expect from A Hallmark Movie. Charming, funny, sweet, and soft. Although predictable, I enjoyed every moment especially Kevin using their "common law" arrangement as a way to keep Jennifer from marrying Bryce.
The movie also received the Dove Family Approved Stamp so feel free to watch around your kids!
