Picks and Pans Review: Lucky 7

ABC Family (Sun., July 20, 8 p.m. ET)

Contrived, cutesy and occasionally maudlin, this TV movie is lucky to be redeemed by its attractive cast.

Kimberly Williams-Paisley (According to Jim) plays Amy, a lawyer who orders her life according to a time-line provided by her dear, departed mother. Mom's scenario calls for Amy to marry her seventh boyfriend, but she's one short of that mark when she meets Daniel (Brad Rowe), a handsome venture capitalist who seems perfect for her. What to do? Spend one weekend with Peter (Patrick Dempsey), a Wall Street whiz turned humble bagel-shop manager, and call him No. 6. Then she'll be free for happy-ever-aftering with Daniel—unless, of course, she falls in love with Peter. The sentimental conclusion is foregone, but Dempsey and Williams-Paisley make a winning pair.

BOTTOM LINE: The stars save it
