Meet My Valentine online movie review - TV movie, strange rom-com story.
My wife and I caught this movie on Network TV last night, on Valentine's day. The novelty is the main character's wife is Valentine.
Tom and Val seem to have a nice marriage, with a young daughter, but there doesn't seem to be much passion left. While that is pretty common among couple who have been married 20+ years, it is not common among young couples.
He is an artist, who seems "stuck", and she is a chef with a catering business, but she probably could do more. Like have her own restaurant.
One day Tom gets a severe head pain and when he goes to a doctor finds it is a brain tumor, and for purposes of this story's focus, inoperable. He can get chemo, but probably has no more than 9 months or so to live. So he does what anyone else would do, he sets about finding a suitable replacement, to make sure his wife and daughter stay happy and safe. It is a very unusual approach!
We enjoyed the movie as light entertainment, and all the actors are attractive. We asked each other what we would do in a similar circumstance, and neither of us would do what Tom did. But then our lives are not good TV movie stories either. LOL ...
