Signed, Sealed and Stolen
Things are never dull at the DLO with Oliver O'Toole (Eric Mabius - How to Fall in Love) and his team being recruited to help in a case of mail theft with the stolen items being mysteriously replaced by a wedding cake, a can of beans and a goose. But the guys are also asked by a waitress to help retrieve a rather valuable letter she posted to her boyfriend just before he dumped her as it contains a winning lottery ticket. And as it turns out, her letter is one of those which has been stolen and she fears the mail thief might open it. Meanwhile Oliver and Shane (Kristin Booth - A Tale of Two Bunnies) find themselves dealing with the awkwardness of finding themselves becoming close yet also work colleagues, when they go out for a meal together.
All the "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" movies tend to start off a bit daft and seemingly going off on tangents and "Signed, Sealed, Delivered: One in a Million" is no different. We go from a flashback scene of an awkward date between Oliver and Shane to Oliver being called to the main office where he learns of mail theft with items which are stolen replaced by some daft things such as a goose. But of course part of the joy of this is the discovery of how these daft, seemingly random things all end up coming together. On that subject I won't divulge too much as to how "Signed, Sealed, Delivered: One in a Million" plays out other than like a serial killer taunting an FBI agent it seems that these acts of mail theft are targeting Oliver as they all link to the name O'Toole and yes it is worth watching if you have enjoyed all the previous movies.
But what I will say is that whilst all the regular actors such as Eric Mabius, Kristin Booth, Crystal Lowe, and Geoff Gustafson deliver their usual enjoyable performances some of the supporting performances in "Signed, Sealed, Delivered: One in a Million" comes across as trying too hard to be amusing. It is a shame as the forced moments of comedy stick out like the proverbial sore thumb and lets the movie down, ever so slightly.
What this all boils down to is that as a fan of this series of Hallmark movies "Signed, Sealed, Delivered: One in a Million" is still an entertaining movie. But some parts of it end up being a bit off which is a shame.
