From Everything.Sucks

Straight from the Heart is a 2003 American made-for-television romantic drama film starring Teri Polo, Andrew McCarthy, Patricia Kalember and Greg Evigan. The film is based on the romance novel by Pamela Wallace and premiered on Hallmark Channel on February 9, 2003.

A dissapointed viewer shares some thoughts about ¨Straight from the Heart¨, "I enjoy Andrew McCarthy, and he has aged fabulously, but this movie made me cringe nearly the entire time I was watching it-- and I'm a romance buff who has seen and read a lot of pretty saccharine stuff! While one wants to feel sympathy for his character and the troubles he has been through, the tired, trite stoicism makes it difficult to care, and the reactions and lines of some of the supporting characters-- Edward, Laurie, etc.-- are also stock sugar, predictable to the very end.

The conflicts of the movie are sparing at best and ill-resolved, and there's a continued attempt at some sort of suspense that falls horribly flat as it falters toward the end. The backdrop of this movie is beautiful, and Andrew McCarthy has never looked better, but on the whole, the storyline and its boring, yawning turns were not up to par."
