Writer's Love Block
Dori Shephard (Charlotte Sullivan - Unstable) should have her forthcoming wedding to Philip (Preston Vanderslice - Love by Chance) on her mind but as a junior editor at Heartstrings Press she finds her mind focused on Michael RothchildÂ’s (Corey Sevier - Four Christmases and a Wedding), her favourite author who is facing being dropped unless he comes up with a new novel. Not overly impressed to find himself being switched from his usual editor down to a junior one the poorly mannered Michael only agrees to work with Dori when he realises that if he is dropped he will have to hand back the advance which he has already spent. But with her focus on getting Michael back on track, meaning spending lots of time with him, things start to change in Dori's life.
With that synopsis for "Mr. Write" out of the way with I don't think I need to expend much energy to write a review of this made for TV romantic movie from the Pixl network. I guess that if you have never watched another movie before the storyline might be pleasant and even surprising as Dori ends up close to Michael whose attitude changes when he is around her. But for me "Mr. Write" only managed to deliver not only what I had seen many times before butnothing more than what I expected. As such when Dori begins to question where her heart lies whilst Michael turns from being arrogant to a nice guy you really should not be surprised how it then plays out. About the only thing in the least bit different in "Mr. Write" is the sub-plot surrounding Dori's unromantic colleague who finds herself with a date determined to sweep her off of her feet.
What this all boils down to is that "Mr. Write" is nothing new, it is another made for TV romantic comedy which sticks quite closely to the formula which has been used time again in made for TV romantic comedies. Truthfully "Mr. Write" isn't terrible but neither does it stand out from the crowd by becoming anything special and as such ends up the sort of movie which when it appears on your TV schedule you kind of remember having watched it but not what goes on in it or whether it was any good.
