What's the story?
Emma and Lily Valentine are fraternal twins who have the gift of matchmaking. Their relationship is tested when they fall in love with the same boy. Meanwhile, their parents' relationship is falling apart. The sisters indulge in a little bit of competition, a dose of magic, and learn a couple of surprises along the way as they ensure that everyone ends up with their rightful match.
Is it any good?
Tweens and teens looking for a swoony love story with little racy content will gloss over the fact that it’s filled with ridiculous plot points and frustrating twists and turns that make no sense. From the first scene, when a young woman is rescued from a car crash by a romantic figure who appears out of nowhere to the next moment when they're kissing and evidently madly in love, the fantasy elements of this straight-to-DVD movie fails to impress.
