Did You Know?


The Bear float they are building throughout the movie, was based on a real float that appeared in the real rose parade the year before production. The actual float appears in the footage of the parade at the end of the movie. See more »


The entire movie was built around creating a float for The Rose Parade, especially a bear they struggled to make move. But the one the cast created wasn't even close to the one that was shown at the end with footage from an actual parade. See more »

Very boring, very average
4 February 2017 | by namtrac-97938See all my reviews

This movie is predictable to a T. It follows the typical romantic comedy recipe where the female lead and male lead are at odds and fall in love in the end. The female lead is your common daddy's girl who likes art, and the male lead is supposed to be this hotshot Mr. Business city boy type who ~~just doesn't understand ART!~~ You pretty much know they're going to end up together as soon as the male lead walks into the room.

Another huge problem is that the movie fails at creating any tension. Okay, so Rose needs to build a parade float because her father is too sick to do it. And if she doesn't make the float on time...what happens? She's just not in the parade? Why wouldn't she be able to do it next year? Why should I care about this float and how it's made?

Part of the movie is just them advertising for help they need to build the float (which begs the question: how has Rose's father has been making this float for a while if he's not getting the same people or amount of people every year to make it, and why is it a problem this year?). This brings in a bunch of side characters who I suppose are adding a little comedy to the film (like how the blonde college girl sneezes a lot while making the float), but all the jokes just fall flat.

There are also some details that the director and crew overlooked while making the film. For example, in the beginning of the movie, Rose is welding something together. She wears the suit and the mask (in a way that hides her face so we can have the clichéd joke where the male lead thinks Rose is a man because he can't see her face and she is doing something some people consider masculine), but she doesn't tie her hair up in a ponytail or bun. (I would've given this movie two more stars if her hair had caught on fire in the middle of the scene.)

Overall, this movie is boring. You know how it's going to end, and the writers don't add anything different or unique to try to make this movie stand out. Give this one a skip.
