More Detail:

MY BIRTHDAY ROMANCE is a romantic comedy on UPtv about a woman who owns a catering business and must find a “fake date” for her 35th birthday party. MY BIRTHDAY ROMANCE is very funny, charming and playful, with important, positive life lessons about patience, honesty, love, forgiveness, and marriage.

Callie owns a catering business and is about to have her 35th birthday. Callie’s parents encourage her to date so that one day she will find a husband, but she’s perfectly content being single. At the weekly family dinner, Callie’s parents insist on throwing Callie a birthday party and they invite a family friend over who could be a potential date. Callie is uninterested and leaves the dinner to hang out with her brother, Kyle, at a bar.

At the bar, Kyle introduces Callie to his three friends. It’s apparent that Callie and Kyle are polar opposites. Unlike Callie, Kyle is extroverted and goes on many dates. While Kyle talks to two women at the bar, Callie introduces herself to Kyle’s friend, Will. Callie and Will bond over the fact that they both enjoy being single even though they’re constantly pestered “to settle down.” After Callie’s mother and father try to arrange dates for her party, Callie decides she will bring a fake date.

Callie invites Will to lunch and asks him if he will be her fake boyfriend for the days leading up to the party. He agrees with the offer that Callie provides him free food from her catering company. The two go on a “trial date” so that they can get to know each other better. Callie remarks that Will would be a good “real boyfriend” if he ever wanted to be one day. Callie and Will warm up to one another, and Will tells Callie a fact that seahorses mate for life.

At the next family dinner, Callie drops the she’s started dating Kyle’s friend, Will. Her parents are ecstatic and want to meet him as soon as possible. Will comes over shortly after dinner and introduces himself to Callie’s parents and siblings. The entire family likes him immediately and are convinced that Callie and Will are actually dating. The following day, Callie and Will talk separately to their friends and suggest that “acting like a couple was so convincing” that they almost fooled themselves.

Callie and Will spend more time with one another going on fake dates and family outings. Callie invites Will to a catering event, but without the fake boyfriend duties. Will declines the offer, because he has plans to go out on an actual date with another woman. Callie is crushed and realizes she’s developed genuine feelings for Will. Meanwhile, she has no idea that Will has developed genuine feelings fer her. Following her catering event, the two get into an argument and decide to call off the “scheme,” because things have become too complicated.

Callie and Will both attend her birthday party but steer clear of one another. However, Callie’s parents have arranged something special for the couple to bring them closer together. Will it work?

MY BIRTHDAY ROMANCE is charming, playful and hilarious. It offers a variety of character dynamics that add to the story’s excitement and comedy. For example, Callie and her brother Kyle make a perfect duo as Kyle is a stereotypical bachelor, and Callie is more independent and introverted. Also, the character Will is the perfect boyfriend and will leave the audience rooting for his and Callie’s love story. Ultimately, this romantic comedy can be enjoyed by almost any age.

MY BIRTHDAY ROMANCE doesn’t include any explicit Christian, biblical content. However, it’s a positive move with strong or solid moral, redemptive elements. For example, Callie’s parents model a healthy and sustainable marriage, her family has weekly dinners to strengthen their bond, and Callie comes forward with the truth after lying to her family, and they forgive her. Ultimately, MY BIRTHDAY ROMANCE has important, positive life lessons about patience, honesty, love, forgiveness, and marriage. Although there is some miscellaneous immorality such as deceit and white lies, these elements are resolved positively by the end. MY BIRTHDAY ROMANCE is a thoroughly enjoyable, family-friendly movie.
