Hallmark Channel heats up January with romantic movies
The Hallmark Channel is featuring two movies with varying degrees of success in implementing an effective romantic formula to warm up to this cold winter month.
“Fixing Pete,” which airs at 8 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 7, starts out a bit shaky, but gets better before its conclusion.
“Fixing Pete” stars Brooke Burns (“Melrose Place”) as Ashley Boyd, an ambitious fashion editor at the Los Angeles Post who has just been given her own column by her boss Nan (Valerie Harper, “Rhoda”), but has to make over sloppy, unsophisticated sports writer Pete Camden (Dylan Bruno, “Numb3rs”) as her first assignment.
Ashley also specializes in being a perfectionist and thinks she has found her soul mate in her boyfriend Christopher (Brian McGovern, “The Game”), a perfectionist as well, whose goals include being a newscaster and living in a penthouse in New York.
Pete doesn’t want to participate in the makeover but is given no choice by his editor Clayton (John Ratzenberger, “Cheers”). Clayton believes an image makeover for Pete will help in the promotion of his new book.
Of course, Ashley and Pete with their clashing personalities don’t see eye-to-eye at first, but they grow and learn from each other as they work together.
They also get a little assistance from their best friends, Mandy (Stacy Keibler, “Dancing With the Stars”) and Marty (Charlie Schlatter “Diagnosis Murder”).
This movie starts a little slowly and too predictably, and the wig that Bruno wears before Pete’s makeover is distracting.
