Amazingly Awesome for a romance movie

It reminded me so much of: PG: mild romance scenes

Refreshingly clean

I found this entertaining, even while being your very typical romantic comedy. It had some good laughs and no dirty jokes or implied sexual conversation, which is hard to come by nowadays. There is a gay couple that runs the cafe and some drinking.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (4 ):

Without a single inventive character or original situation, the film almost succeeds on the merits of wholesomeness alone, but the stale final sequence makes it finally irredeemable. There's more romance than comedy, unless seeing someone repeatedly being scared by the unexpected presence of a goat makes for laughs. And while it's fun to see a person (or "inn") go from ugly duckling to swan, Falling Inn Love skims over the beauties of transformation and avoids any mention of the challenges of funding the protagonist's pricey project, so it's simply a means of advancing the plot. Taking center stage are the quirky folksy folks, and the "girl meets boy, girl loses boy, girl gets boy back" through-line. Even that is made is made silly by the ridiculousness of what separates them. Okay for a diversion, but otherwise not recommended.
