Rory Gilmore meets and falls in love with Chuck Bartowski, you guys.

OK, maybe it’s not Rory and Chuck starring in tonight’s latest Hallmark Hall of Fame Movie presentation but it is the actors who made those TV characters famous. The presence of Gilmore GirlsAlexis Bledel and Chuck‘s Zachary Levi helps make Remember Sunday memorable.

Synopsis for Remember Sunday: A lonely, down-on-her-luck waitress, Molly (Bledel), meets a handsome, quirky jewelry store clerk, Gus (Levi), and thinks that maybe – finally — she’s met Mr. Right. The more Molly gets to know Gus, the more she’s intrigued by him. But she’s also mystified and sometimes miffed. Gus is absent-minded and preoccupied. Is there already a girlfriend in his life? Is he harboring some big secret? In other words, Molly wonders, what’s his problem? Well, Gus’ “problem” is that three years ago he suffered a brain aneurysm. He’d been a brilliant young astrophysicist; now he’s totally lost his short-term memory. Every day is a brand new day and his life starts anew. And every day when he sees Molly, he’s unable to connect the dots and recognize how, exactly, she fits into his life. But there’s something about this beautiful, sensitive, funny woman that makes Gus fall in love with her all over again – every day.

This is one of those TV movies (and they’re rare these days) that as soon as it’s done you’re going to want to watch it over and over again. Yes, it has a very 50 First Dates kind of premise. Depicting a person with an obliterated short-term memory can be frustrating but it’s not here. The movie is cute. Anytime Merritt Wever (Nurse Jackie, The Good Wife, New Girl) is involved we’re on board. Zachary Levi and Alexis Bledel share a nice chemistry. And you definitely root for their characters to fall in love.

Remember Sunday debuts tonight at 9/8c on ABC. Look for the movie to re-air on Hallmark Channel next Sunday April 28. Check your local listings.
