I don't know how many times I've written almost identical words about various Hallmark Channel comedies, but it really doesn't matter. When the basic story is good, what matters is how you tell it. The people who made this decided to run it as a broad farce with ridiculous details and pulled out all visual stops, including the way they change Jamie Kennedy's outfits and the way that Joely Fisher as Eve is willing to mug it up. The script has a goodly number of funny situations as Miss Fisher and her crack team foul up bit after bit.

That, however, is my taste and I am sure that for those who like to think that love is never ridiculous this will be a real winner. Even by my standards, it's pretty good.
