Movie Info

Divorced mom Kathleen Russell (Roma Downey) needs a lot of money in a hurry in order to afford a decent home for herself and her daughter Zoey (Sarah Rosen Fruitman). Meanwhile, Kathleen's boss, swinging bachelor Sam Field (Eric McCormick) must pretend to be happily married, and with children, if he wants to close a major business deal with mysterious Mexican financier Javier Del Campo (Hector Elizondo). At first, it seems as though Kathleen and Sam come up with the notion of posing as man and wife all by themselves; but as this made-for-TV romantic comedy-fantasy progresses, it is clear that two other people are actually pulling the strings--and there's a third character looming in the shadows!

Audience Reviews for Borrowed Hearts: A Holiday Romance


Borrowed Hearts is a Hallmark type of movie - a poor single mother with a cute daughter find a rich single guy who can't stand them, but needs them to act as his family. By the end of the movie, the business is saved, the couple is in love, and everyone lives happily ever after.

A very cheesy, corny, b-list Christmas movie. It was awesome. McCormick's hair looked a little dirty when you don't take a shower for a while. But by doing this, your hair retains a lot of the oils that shampoos will strip from it. So I understand where he was going with that.

Very sweet and enjoyable holiday movie. I particularly enjoyed the comedy and the ways both Sam and Kathleen overcame their walls they used to shelter themselves. I would consider this a "Lifetime Movie Network" movie, but that doesn't mean they are all bad!
