Aired: 4/2/16 on Hallmark Channel
When I sat down to review this movie, I couldn’t remember the name of the movie. Maybe it’s because All Yours is so generic a title and it has nothing to do with the movie, though perhaps it is apt since the movie is so generic.
Cass McKay (Nicollette Sheridan) is a widow (Hallmark – home of the jilted fiancé and the dead husband) and a lawyer. Her kids are little hellions that force out nanny after nanny. Vincent is a journeyman – he graduated from Stanford Law, and sailed around the world. Vincent’s father is building a complex at the local marina, one that would cost jobs (not sure how this would cost jobs and not create them, but that is the story). Vincent and his father come to an agreement. If he sticks around and nannies the Cass children then the marina project will get cancelled. I don’t know why you would give up a multi-million-dollar project for someone else’s kids, but it’s Hallmark.
Perhaps the most offensive part of this movie (other than the absurd plot) was Cass’s reaction to the “manny,” stating that she doesn’t want a man to take care of her kids. Seriously? What do you think a father does? Cass also reacts poorly to finding out that Vincent took the job as an agreement (they called it a bet, though it didn’t feel like a bet) with his father. She flips out and fires him. Why? Who cares why he took the job. Your kids like them, wouldn’t that be enough?
Other than being offensive, having a silly plot, and an impossible to remember name, All Yours is just fine.
