Parallels to Castle

The general story arc was fairly good. I never saw that climax coming. On the other hand, when it comes to specifics, the plot was so full of holes, it would sink an aircraft carrier. The biggest factor in those holes was police procedure. I guess we can't count among them the fact these two were paired up to begin with given Castle went on for how many seasons with a very similar arrangement. But there were so many other obvious police procedure flaws, I won't even start to name them. The acting was decent. Neal and Burns got along about like you'd expect and certainly a lot like Castle and Beckett in the early days. Some critics refer to Maggie as bitchy, but her reactions through all the early scenes are exactly what should be expected when her captain has just handcuffed her to an amateur. Perhaps at the cooking demonstration at the top, she should have just kept her mouth shut, but her skepticism at Henry being labeled a detective is natural. She does eventually lighten up and they seem to almost like each other and end up carping at one another like a married couple. I think in terms of enjoyment, it is fair to compare this to Castle, although in my mind Castle brought a lot more humor to the table through a combination of lame theories and general bumbling.

Canadian version of Castle

Castle was one of my favorite shows (in spite of the female lead) so this was okay (also in spite of the female lead). The plot and details are silly - but that's the genre. Especially on the Hallmark Channel. What I really didn't like, though, were the pretty Hallmark houses. Don't get me wrong - I would love to live in any of the Hallmark Channel homes. But with the setting of San Francisco, they're ludicrous. None of the characters in food service and law enforcement would make enough money to live in a beautiful roomy house in the city. Plus, notice the trees are bare. Trees don't lose their leaves in winter in San Francisco. A few B roll shots of street cars is just lazy.

A fun story almost spoiled by an overly bitchy female lead...

I decided to watch this movie because of Dylan Neal; I've seen him in a few other movies and always enjoyed his performances. It started off great; he's charming, and the movie seemed like a fun little whodunnit with a twist. And then Brooke Burns (aka the sour-faced dragon lady from hell) opened her freaky lips and spewed unwarranted aggressive bitchiness (and I say opened her lips because I've never seen anyone so clenched and uptight that their jaw couldn't move when they spoke). And she didn't stop until about 3/4 of the way through the movie, when she actually seemed human for the first time. Seriously, dial it down, lady! I nearly packed it in after ten minutes because she was so intolerably annoying. But hey, I've watched far worse and this did turn out to be an okay little time waster. Not especially taxing on the intellect in terms of working out who did what, but still a bit of fun. Worth a watch if you come across it.
