It's a Good Time for More CHRISTMAS on Hallmark! See Here:

While I was watching the local news yesterday, the weather-man said most of the United States currently has a dusting or large covering of snow. (See map below...) Since nearly everyone is walking in a winter wonderland - this is a GOOD time it is to revisit Christmas and all the joy it brings!

See details and reviews on the Christmas movies airing this week below...

Good Morning Christmas! - MOVIE REVIEWS:

πŸŽ„"I was looking forward to Good Morning Christmas because I know Marc and Alison are fantastic together, and it did not disappoint. Very cute, romantic, and festive. The characters' connection was palpable. I was grinning through the whole thing and rewatched the ending several times. Family friendly." ~ Amy Lama

πŸŽ„"I really, really liked "Good Morning, Christmas." Really cute, great story, couple had lots of charisma together and who wouldn't love to watch the "Bright and Mary!" show!" ~ Kathy

πŸŽ„It was great! Alison and Marc still have that chemistry that was so evident in The Irresistible Blueberry Farm. One of the better movies this year. I hope they will do more movies together. ~ Joyce

πŸŽ„"Good Morning, Christmas is another great movie. Marc and Alison are still perfect together. Want this DVD!" ~kitkat

πŸŽ„"Good Morning Christmas I love the unique story and the cute banters. I’m not a big fan of a love triangle usually so that’s the only thing that make this not in my top list personally. Alison and Marc were both wonderful in this and truly what I expected them to be, just like in their previous movie “Irresistible Blueberry Farm”." ~CH Mom

πŸŽ„"Good Morning Christmas The Irresistible Blueberry Farm is one of my all-time favourite Hallmark movies and when I saw this I wondered if they could possibly re-capture the amazing chemistry between Alison and Marc. Wow - did they just - it was absolutely off the scale. The banter between the two leads was hilarious, the plot was surprisingly original and although there were many of the usual Christmas scenarios - gingerbread housemaking, ice skating etc they were done with a certain irreverence which was refreshing and placed a new slant on them. Good secondary cast too - I particularly liked Matthew Dowden who played the part of the Deputy Mayor - although he spent a good deal of time with Melissa there was never any hint of anything romantic between them. He has played secondary roles in a few Hallmark movies now and I'd really love to see him land a lead role. And as so often is not the case they had a great ending which left you with such a warm glow as regards the romance. I did have one beef though which actually upset me to some degree I personally don't like proposals which are made in public - I feel they are something intimate and private but that's my problem of course. However to deliberately set up a live TV performance of a very private moment without permission was totally invasive and beyond the pale. This aside one of the top Christmas movies this season." ~Anonymous

πŸŽ„"Good Morning Christmas. I really liked this cute movie. Good chemistry between the leads. Keeper. Family friendly." ~~Jane

πŸŽ„"First of all, just seeing Alison Sweeney and Marc Blucas together again was pure magic! These two just lit up the screen! Like many others, I loved them originally in “The Irresistible Blueberry Farm” and while this movie was different than that, I still enjoyed it very much. The energy both Alison and Marc brought to their characters was electrifying. Since the two had worked together before in real life, it was easier to see these two in these roles as rivaling colleagues. I loved how as time went by - they began to see each other in a whole new light. It was nice to watch as they went ice skating and decorated the Christmas tree – how their normally competitive natures began to dissolve into having feelings for one another. I very much enjoyed this lighthearted, family friendly movie – it’s one I look forward to watching over and over again! Good Morning, Christmas! is very good!" ~Net

Five Star Christmas - MOVIE REVIEWS:

πŸŽ„"5 star Christmas was a wonderful departure from the usual plots. It really felt more of an ensemble script rather than a duet between leads. The film is very family friendly. They really purposed to make this a comedy and it shows. I laughed out loud more than once, and I'm a hard sell. The chemistry between the leads felt genuine as they are friends in real life. My only downside was there just isn't much room for the romance because all the cast gets a good amount of screen time. I would watch it again. Great film." ~ Marie B

πŸŽ„"Five Star Christmas should be fine for viewing by anyone." ~ Ashley

πŸŽ„"The worst (movie) was five star Christmas.i love bethany joy lens but it seemed all thrown together." ~ Anonymous

πŸŽ„"Five Star Christmas. This one was a lot of fun, I enjoyed it. Fantastic ensemble cast. I've not been the biggest fan of Bethany Joy Lenz, especially when she's over-acting (like she does in the very first scene of this movie); but when she finally settles into her role, she's very natural and realistic. I'm starting to really like her. This movie was kind of light on the romance, but I almost liked it better because of that -- less sappiness and more about family relationships. Not sure yet if I'd buy the dvd but this is definitely a keeper for the dvr. Family friendly." ~~Jane

πŸŽ„"Five Star Christmas with Bethany Joy Lenz and Victor Webster was cute. The beginning was somewhat confusing to me. Paula Shaw as the grandmother was so funny as the Russian guest. The actors worked well together. I have to commend Mr. Webster for "putting himself out there" and singing in one scene. He sang Elvis' Blue, Blue Christmas with the help of Ms. Lenz." ~ Namegirl

πŸŽ„"Five Star Christmas was a another favorite over the last week. I really enjoyed the focus on the whole cast and the characters felt more fleshed out than usual. Bethany & Victor did a great job and I found myself laughing out loud more than once." ~Kay

πŸŽ„"Five Star Christmas - I just love Bethany Joy Lenz. I wish there’s more chemistry but this movie was still cute to watch. I chuckled many times when they were pretending to be the guests of the inn. Loved the unique story." ~ CH Mom

Happy Christmas movie watching!

  1. "Good Morning Christmas" will remain on my DVR until a DVD is available. This movie tied with "The Angel Tree" as my #1 movie for 2020. Watched this so many times! I love movies with romance and comedy. Marc Blucas should have been paired with Alison Sweeney in her mysteries. The two of them together have the "it" factor that is treasured on TV.

    Still praying for all those in the deep freeze. My heart goes out to all of you who are involved. May God bless and take care of you.

      Oh my goodness Kitkat! You have no idea how many times I have spoke that same sentiment, should have paired Marc Blucas with Alison in the Chronicle Mysteries! Actually said it again last night to my husband! I like Benjamin Ayers, but he and Alison don't have that WOW factor she and Marc have! And as Net can tell you I love Marc Blucas!!!

    1. kitkat, How sweet! Glad you liked the map... I was amazed over how much of the US was covered.

      You're right - Alison & Marc are absolutely fantastic together! Would be great if they could do more movies - somehow. Maybe he could guest star on Chronicle Mysteries and they could do a love triangle, like they did with Hannah, Mike, and Norman on "Murder She Baked!" Love that show, too!

      I added your review to the main Christmas movie post - here!

      Thank you for praying with us... God bless you, too, honey!

    2. Joyce in CarolinaFriday, February 19, 2021

      Net, if they put Marc in the Chronicles as a triangle you know I would be rooting for Marc!!! Lol!!

    3. Me too Joyce! I love Marc Blucas also!

  3. I still haven't seen Five Star Christmas in its entirety. Perhaps, tomorrow.


    1. Denise, Oh, I hope so! I only have 3 or 4 left from Hallmark and that's one of them! I don't know if I'll watch Friday night, though, or save it 'til last? Haven't decided, yet.

  4. The other day when it was snowing like crazy here in Washington State, I watched Pearl and Paradise, Moonlight in Vermont, Bridal Wave and Pride Prejudice and Mistletoe while knitting and relaxing. Hallmark always makes me feel cozy. It was a great day!

    1. Melissa, That sounds like such a nice, relaxing day! I get that same cozy feeling when I watch the older Hallmark movies that I love.

      Love the movies you picked- with Jill Wagner, Kristoffer Polaha, Andrew Walker, and Lacey Chabert! What great company you had on your snow day!

      Thank you for sharing with us! :)

  5. I watched Love at First Bark yesterday

    This Jana Kramer’s first movie with Hallmark

    Is there more of hers

    1. Jana Kramer only has that one Hallmark movie, which is very sweet with Kevin McGarry!

      However, you should look for her in her Lifetime Christmas movies. I especially enjoyed her roles in "Christmas in Mississippi" and "A Welcome Home Christmas." Both are family friendly and fun! :)

  6. The first episode of When Calls the Heart was very exciting! I'm so glad they didn't have a Christmas special this year. Now there's more interesting episodes:)
