The Convenient Groom (2016)
I was halfway through watching this when i realized that i watched it before. Clearly it was not impressive enough to be especially memorable. The casting for this is where the cringe-factor begins. The two leads are way too old for this story. Sorry, but a couple of people approaching fifty who are behaving like a bunch of ditzy teens who are unsure about what is happening as they are falling in love is just... cringe!
Seriously, the male lead is about 15 years younger than the woman who plays his mother... and almost 30 years older than his little sister. Meanwhile, the two main characters are carrying on like they are experiencing being attracted to someone for the first time in their lives, and they don't know how to handle the situation.
While we're at it... what is up with the characters in these types of movies always needing to be extra-exceptional? He can't just be the humble carpenter guy she knew from back in high school. Naturally he has to have graduated with top honors from an ivy league school, and now he lives a simple life... in a home that looks wayyyy outside the budget of a humble small town carpenter. Give me a break!
What annoyed my most of all was the decision to have the (former) fiancé cheating on her with another woman already lined up with another woman on the side. Imagine if he just left because he didn't want to be in a relationship with a shallow blogger? In fact, I think the ex-fiancé made the wisest decision of his life by getting away from her, and the writers seem to realize that, which is why they had to poison the viewers against the ex-fiancé.
The first twenty or so minutes of her getting triggered by every little thing was mildly amusing, but it went downhill fast once it got to the murdered boyfriend part of the plot. It was not even watchable as a 'so bad, it's good' movie. I tapped out less than halfway through.
