THEN CAME YOU is a romantic comedy about an American widow who starts a world tour with her husband’s ashes to visit places they loved in the movies, but her first stop, at a lovely lakeside mansion in Scotland, changes her life. Starring Kathie Lee Gifford and Craig Ferguson, THEN CAME YOU is a funny, engaging romantic comedy, but the movie contains a fair amount of unnecessary foul language and several bawdy jokes, and some viewers will find the story a little predictable.

The movie opens with the widow, Annabelle, writing to Howard, the owner of the lakeside mansion who’s turned it into a Scottish inn, asking about visiting the inn. He writes back that she’s welcome to come.

Cut to Howard picking up Annabelle at the local train station. The two don’t hit it off, however. She doesn’t like his jokes, especially when he makes mild fun of some of the things she says.

As the first days pass, it becomes clear that Howard, who’s actually a noble Lord, is actually hurting financially because of the costly upkeep on the inn, which also is his family home. Annabelle and Howard start to grow on each other, even though Howard’s comments still sometimes grate on her. However, a surprise development makes Annabelle re-think starting a serious romance with this sarcastic but funny and appealing man from Scotland.

THEN CAME YOU is a funny, engaging romantic comedy. The script, which was also written by Kathie Lee Gifford, is nicely structured, with smooth, funny dialogue. Gifford has also written a couple great songs for the movie. The songs are truly Oscar worthy.

That said, the second of our two reviewers screening the movie found the story a little predictable. The movie has a mixed worldview. The two lovers sleep together, but they also get married. THEN CAME YOU also contains a fair amount of unnecessary foul language and several bawdy jokes. So, MOVIEGUIDE advises extreme caution. Please consult the CONTENT section for more information.

THEN CAME YOU is available on DVD and through some streaming services, such as Amazon Prime.
