Spoilers for 'Advice to Love By'
The movie welcomes us as we meet Kendall Turner, a well-known author and love expert. Except she's not the usual type of love expert you'd meet. The lady is all about science. So it makes sense when her book is aptly titled ' The Science of Love'. Kendall believes love is nothing more than a series of chemical reactions in the brain that can be explained. Nothing but a bunch of 'neuroreceptor signals' as she says. Next we are introduced to Nathan Hart, a reporter who works under the guise of ' Doctor Lovestruck' and writes a romance column. It's pretty easy to guess he is the stark opposite of Kendall. Nathan believes in fate, grand gestures and all things that the brain can't explain. As luck would have it they both find themselves in each others lives. doing a piece about each other. Now we all know what comes next... that's right the feelings.
'Advice to Love By' is a predictable watch, but with the abundance of love stories out there it hard to fault its familiarity. This is a movie you watch purely for pleasure as we see the two slowly fall for each other. Brooks Darnell is sweet as the hopeless romantic while Erinn Westbrook too, does a good job portraying the non-believer. As we watch Kendall the 'love expert' take the love out of everything with her nitpicking, we can't help but chuckle at the irony of her not matching up to her own philosophies. As they both fall for each other, the romantic in us is happy with the assurance of a happy end. Its not like its unexpected, but its still sweet to see two people realize that they mean more to each other than they thought.
'Advice to Love By' is a cute watch you can tune into anytime of the week to relax. Grab your lover or your crush to drop them a hint and watch this romance together. The movie tells us that no matter how hard you try to break down the phenomenon of love or take a detailed statistical approach, the concept is unexplainable and adored for a reason.
'Advice to Love By' is now streaming on the Hallmark Channel.
