Summer memories and teen summer love have all the right elements necessary for a sappy movie. Happily, while "Kiss at Pine Lake" (8 tonight, Hallmark) is sappy it isn't unbearably so. Think of it as a summer lark.
The film tells the story of Luke and Zoe. We meet them as teens on the last day of camp; they've been flirting all summer. Just before Zoe's parents come to pick her up, the pair sneaks away to say goodbye. But before they get to share their first kiss, Zoe's dad calls her away. There is no next summer; eventually they lose touch.
Fifteen years later, Luke (Barry Watson) is an entrepreneur with a philanthropic bent; his best friend from camp Tommy (Matty Finochio) acts as his business manager and public face. Zoe (Mia Kirshner) is a standout employee at a development firm; she confides in her best friend from camp Erica (Victoria Bidewell). Both Luke and Zoe still think about the kiss that wasn't.
