CAREFREE DOES NOT MEAN WORRY FREE!
ANNA CHLUMSKY AND WARREN CHRISTIE STAR IN "THREE WEEKS, THREE KIDS," A HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE WORLD PREMIERE, MAY 7
Chelah Horsdal, Susan Hogan, and Kevin McNulty Also Star
Young Artist Award winner Anna Chlumsky ("My Girl," "The Good Guy") plays a free spirit who has to finally embrace adulthood when she is suddenly saddled with taking care of her sister's kids in "Three Weeks, Three Kids," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere Saturday, May 7 (9 p.m. ET/PT, 8C). Chlumsky stars alongside Warren Christie ("October Road"), Chelah Horsdal ("Debbie Macomber's Mrs. Miracle"), Susan Hogan ("Battlestar Galactica") and Kevin McNulty ("Robson Arms").
Twenty-five-year-old Jennifer Mills (Chlumsky) lives her life without commitments-she rides a bright red Vespa, she makes her own hours at work, and is confident and relieved her boyfriend isn't even close to putting a ring on her finger. Not at all like her older sister, Mandy (Horsdal), who married young and settled into family life, Jennifer loves being carefree. But her mother, Kathryn (Hogan), sees Jennifer's wild ways as a fear of settling down, and hatches a secret plan to take her from playful to parent in just three weeks. When Mandy and her husband plan a three-week European vacation without their three kids, Kathryn convinces Jennifer to help watch them until she can get into town, feigning her husband Russell's (McNulty) broken hip as an excuse not to travel.
Jennifer quickly finds out playing house isn't for kids. From sneaking out to schoolyard bullies and boyfriends with motorcycles, Mandy's three kids make Jennifer realize she has to go from cool aunt to strict parent if she's going to keep her sister's trust. But, with a little help from the handsome new neighbor across the street, Will (Christie), Jennifer manages to pull it together to prove to everyone, and even herself, that taking responsibility can be rewarding.
