When Joseph and Claire see Josie with a "loser," they'll give anything to have Richard back in the picture. At least, that's the plan. Over the anniversary party weekend, Maxwell stays with Josie as a guest in the Mayfield home, horrifying Joseph and Claire with his unsophisticated ways.

This is how a fun romance should be

Gridley(Paul Campbell) is a down on his luck drifter who runs into his high school crush Josie(Hilarie Burton) in the park one day. Her boyfriend Richard, who is arrogant and stuffy, knows that Josie's wealthy parents hate Gridley even worse than him, so he pays Gridley to accompany Josie home for the weekend to her parents 40th anniversary party, in order to make him look more appealing.

Yes, there are a lot of standard romantic clichés here: snobby parents, comic mishaps by Gridley, and romantic sparks flying between Gridley and Josie. However, three things make this better than the usual Hallmark romance. First, Tim Conway plays grandpa as a man who fakes dementia to avoid his family's squabbles and is hilarious throughout.

Second, Josie's sister Mindy with her green-streaked hair, which is the result of a Gridley mishap, and her free-spirited, stubborn ways is extremely likable and comes close to stealing the show.

And third, Paul Campbell has just the right amount of quirkiness and makes the viewer both sympathetic and humored.

Of course, Josie and Gridley fall in love, her family accepts him and they end up together as one would expect. But, the journey there is fun and sometimes its nice simply to watch a movie, especially Hallmark, JUST for fun and romance!!

OMG !!!!! The BEST !!!

This is the best non-Christmas Hallmark movie ever!! Someone said the first 15 minutes were not good. Please don't stop watching until you get to the end!! Tim Conway is hilarious!! And Paul Campbell is seriously my favorite Hallmark actor and ranks extremely high on my list of all time favorites! He is flawless in this one! This is the perfect reality~escape movie that will keep you laughing, smiling and quoting when it's over!!

REALLY LIKED GRIDLEY!

LIGHT HEARTED COMEDY REQUIRES A GOOD ACTOR. PAUL CAMPBELL IS ONE OF THE FEW HALLMARK ACTORS THAT CAN DELIVER A GENUINE PERFORMANCE. I HAVE WATCHED THIS SHOW SEVERAL TIMES BECAUSE OF PAUL CAMPBELL'S LIKABILITY.

I THOUGHT 'SURPRISED BY LOVE' WAS ONE OF THE BETTER HALLMARK MOVIES DUE TO GOOD DIRECTION AND A FOCUSED EFFORT BY THE ENTIRE CAST. WHY ARE ALL CANADIAN ACTORS SO MUCH BETTER AT CREATING SEXY,CHARISMATIC CHARACTERS?

AND..... IT NEVER HURTS TO HAVE A TIM CONWAY IN A MOVIE
