  3. Ummmm, this looooooks cute, but I'm also confused? How in the world did she get to 2016? Where is her husband? I don't get it. I love Candace and I'll definitely be watching but this storyline is baffling!!!!!

    1. I went to the Hallmark Channel's web site and it gives you the description. It happens during the Christmas comet and she hits her head and wakes up in 2016. You see the comet in the poster.

  4. Does Candace have a love interest in this? If so, who is he?

    1. That's a good question! I need to look up the IMDB to see who her husband is!

  5. Certainly sounds different and I really don't know what to make or expect of this.

  6. I think most people will watch because they are curious. Candace usually wheels out the standard Rom-Com, Sappy, Happy Christmas movie, but this one has some interesting element that makes it unique. Will we like it? Well, that is yet to be seen. Guess we need to take Haley's Comet to the future to find out!!!

    I'm awfully curious as to who Candace's love interest is - in this, too!!! Is it somehow Oliver Hudson??? Or, wild idea, is Tom Skerritt her husband - in the future??? Just guessing!!!

    My completely random guess (because I really have no clue) is that there are a few ways this story could go...

    In one scenario, Candace ends up in the future, temporarily distracted by handsome Oliver Hudson, but by the end of the movie she is back in 1945, and her husband (who went missing) has returned to her.

    If that occurs, I think that 2016 Candace will help steer Oliver Hudson and Brooke Nevin together (assuming they're not playing siblings or family of some sort, of course! Lol). We would probably see that Brooke has secretly been in love with Oliver's character all along, and while he is temporarily captivated by Candace, Candace will do something to help him see that Brooke loves him before Candace heads back to 1945 to greet her long-lost husband.



    The other/second scenario could be that someone in 2016 is a future relative/descendant of Candace. Candace's character wants to stay in 2016, but then learns that if she doesn't go back to 1945 and start a family with her long-lost husband, somehow the family that she has just been living with in 2016 will never exist.



    OR... maybe being in 2016 will somehow help Candace figure out what happened to her husband in 1945. For example, maybe we will learn that Tom Skerritt is a descendant of her husband, and he will talk of what happened to his grandfather or great-grandfather in the war, giving Candace a clue of how to find her husband when she returns to 1945.

  8. Your second scenario sounds the likely one.

    I would say it's odds on that someone will be a descendant of hers.

  9. I wonder if she's talking to her 'future self' in that one picture of the elderly lady in the wheelchair?

  10. This sounds very intriguing and I am looking forward to it. I like it when HM incorporates a bit of mystery and Christmas magic into their movies instead of the usual scenario of boy meets girl, girl hates boy, then they end up in love. Not that I don't like that (I do) but a change of pace is good, and this sounds like it will definitely be a change! Enjoy the movie as well as the remainder of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend everyone!

  13. This is REALLY good; head and shoulders above the average (and too often formulaic) Christmas fare.

  14. Wow! The best Christmas movie since, "It's A Wonderful Life". Candace Cameron Bure, deserves to win an Emmy for her performance.

  15. I noticed that it doesn't appear as if this movie will run on the Hallmark Channel again this year, only HMM. Is that so? I really hope not. :( My friends and I were looking forward to watching it but were unable to when it premiered, and none of us get HMM.
