  1. When do ion movies actually start?

    1. November 26th. I have the new and past ION family Christmas movies throughout November and December on the Christmas TV Schedule! Includes A Golden Christmas, A Cinderella Christmas and more!!!

  2. I just posted this on another page on this blog but figured this page would be a better place to put it. Here are my thoughts on this movie. While the story line was nice, there were several spots where they used God's name in vain as well as used the words D*** and A**. While those aren't hard core swear words, it's not something I enjoy listening to in a friendly feel good movie. Just thought I would pass it along in case anyone is interested.

  3. The storyline was nice...about love and forgiveness. There were a few scenes that struck me as out of place for the family movies I'm used to (i.e., Hallmark movies). There was an insinuating make out scene...where the actors popped out of the hay after making out with hay in their hair. There was also the garter removal. Neither scene was overly scandalous but still noticeable. Those scenes gave the movie a different feel and to me, really didn't need to be there.

    1. Thank you for sharing this information. It's too bad this sort of stuff has to be included in a Christmas movie, that otherwise would be an enjoyable watch. I appreciate you, and the above Anonymous commenter, sharing this info!

      Blessings, Net
