...a slight, instantly forgettable romantic comedy that doesn't possess any real depth...

All but dripping with downhome charm, small-town coziness, and lovable kook overload.

Audience Reviews for Hard Promises

Nothing special here. Girl falls for the wrong guy, marries him, has the kid - big surprise she wants a divorce. If you've nothing else to watch then throw this movie on but don't make a special trip for it.

This earnest comedy has the bland consistency of a TV movie designed to complement commercials for soft drinks.
