Please note: I have not pre-screened the new movies. If you'd like to post a review on whether a film is family-friendly once they air, please share in comments.

So far... These new movies all look rather sweet. "Chasing Waterfalls" sounds enchanting! Cindy Busby and Christopher Russell will star in this Spring Fling movie; they were delightful together in last year's new premiere, "Love in the Forecast."

Another interesting sounding storyline is Don't Go Breaking My Heart (Previously:"Breakup Boot Camp"), with Italia Ricci and Ryan Paevey. I'm sure sparks will fly when Miranda (Italia Ricci) learns that Ben (Ryan Paevey) has been investigating her business.

Which of these new movies are you looking forward to seeing? Please share in comments below...

Blessings! Net

  1. Is Chasing Waterfalls a Sequel to Love in the Forecast?

    1. Chris, I wondered the same thing, at first, but "Chasing Waterfalls" is a whole new movie. Cindy Busby was a meteorologist in "Love in the Forecast" and in this new movie she portrays a photographer.

  2. I hope there’s full movies for the weekends (Saturdays & Sundays) since somewhat missing Hallmark Movies last year; March, April, May, June, 8 or 9 Fall Harvest Movies. Also, they add new Hallmark movies in July instead Christmas in July

    1. I've been keeping an eye out for many of these movies, too. I think we will see most of them on the Hallmark Channel in time.

      I wonder if they were trying to film some of these in advance in case there might be another major lockdown.

      As for Christmas in July, I personally hope they keep that tradition, at least for a couple weeks in the month of July - on each Hallmark network.

      Thank you for sharing! :)

    2. Yes, I'd love to know what happened to Finding Love In Mountain View.

      You'd think the Jessica Lowndes/Christopher Russell, Jen Lilley/ Christopher Russell and Jessica Lowndes/Chad Michael Murray movies would be certs for Hallmark.

      Delete
    3. Spencer Lord is in Fishing for Love, not Stephen Lord - his co Star Andrea Brooks

    4. Tycoon's Kiss was filmed immediately after their Christmas movie was filmed last year (that aired on Lifetime, producer pitches to both). Based on a book. It already has an IMDb page, but I haven't found official confirmation it's airing on Hallmark.

      Will be a Fall movie wherever it ends up. I saw photos from production.

    5. I love Christmas in July! Weirdo that I am, I enjoy Christmas movies year round.

      None of the above movies appeal to me. I will try a couple of them anyway.

      Delete
    6. I really hope we get to see James Denton’s Christmas movie. I was sad when it wasn’t on the Christmas schedule, but I’m sure that was because of the Good Witch filming schedule which I’m happy is happening. I know NET doesn’t watch Good Witch, but I love it.

    7. At anonymous, in regards to Finding Love in Mountain View, I feel it got taken off for the woke movies they played like Falling for Look Lodge and My Best Friends Bouquet. who knows if we will ever see it. They will probably reshoot a small part where they add in a gay mixed race couple and then put it back on the schedule. all my opinion of course.

  3. Meh...none so far. But, maybe that will change.

    2. I also feel the same.just read hallmark gets movies from other producers and companies, maybe that's why the quality gas took a dive

  4. Fit for a Prince - The two leads are just ok for me but the premise sounds cute.

    Chasing Waterfalls - Cindy and Christopher were great together in Love in the Forecast so I'm very much looking forward to this.

    Breakup Boot Camp - Italia Ricci and Ryan Paevey are two of my favorites so this is a must watch for me.

    1. Kay, Thank you so much for sharing the movies you're looking forward to. I feel the same way about Cindy & Chris together, plus, I really like Ryan & Italia, but I'm curious what they'll be like together.

  5. I was wondering if all of these are spring fling movies, or if only the last 2 were. there is a week between with no new movies. so I thought maybe the prince movie is not spring fling. and they are playing Crown for Christmas that Friday before the Prince movie. so maybe it is royal week or something. I was hoping we could have more movies for spring cause the bootcamp movie doesn't sound very spring like.

    It seems Cindy B and Jen Lilley work a lot with the director Christie wil wolf and Christopher Russell is in most of her movies. I think Jen and Chris are filming another movie together with CWW as director. Jessica Lowndes is in many of her movies too. Sometimes her daughter (CWW daughter) is in the movies and she is so adorable. she is probably growing up now and could fill the teen roles. Hope we see her cause she was so sweet in Poinsettias for Christmas, she had a bigger role and was adorable.

    1. Sabrina, I was wondering the same thing, too... if "Fit for a Prince" would be considered a Spring Fling movie, so I decided to title the post New Movies in March + Spring Fling. I wish they would give some sort of label to the in-between movies, maybe they could use "A Little Romance," like they called the June movies last year.

      However, since Hallmark starts celebrating Christmas in October, maybe we can celebrate Spring Fling a couple weeks sooner! Right?

      That is such a good point about director Christie Will Wolf working with many of the same actors over and over. I guess they develop friendships and get to know who works best together. "Love is Trending" is the movie you are referring to with Christie Will Wolf directing Jen Lilley and Christopher Russell. Course they already starred together in "Love Unleashed," which was also directed by... Christie Will Wolf!" :)

  6. It would be interesting to know whether these were Hallmark originals or brought in from outside.

    I would expect Italia Ricci and Ryan Paevey to go well together and the scenario sounds promising.

    It's not that long since Love In The Forecast which was enjoyable but both Cindy and Christopher are very uneven - they can be brilliant or mediocre so here's hoping this is a good one!

    I'd like to see more of Natalie Hall On Hallmark - while it wasn't universally popular I personally loved her recent Lifetime Christmas movie A Very Charming Christmas Town but I'll reserve judgement on Jonathan Keltz.

    Love At Look Lodge in which he starred was easily the weakest movie on Hallmark last year.

    I see they have nothing scheduled for 13 March - hopefully they'll have something new to fill this.

    1. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the upcoming movies. I also had "Falling for Look Lodge" in mind when I saw Jonathan Keltz's name attached to "Fit for a Prince." Hopefully viewers will like this one much better. I thought he was likeable in "Once Upon a Prince," so hopefully this movie will be more like that one.

      As for your question, Hallmark does work with various production companies and they acquire some of their movies to fulfill their seasonal line-ups, such as MarVista Entertainment, Johnson Production Group, Front Street Pictures, Timeless Pictures, etc...

  7. I haven't been watching hallmark this year...I've honestly lost interest after their latest changes including same sex couples. I do still follow your page to see what new movies are coming out and what people think. I am happy to hear that these three seem okay. Hopefully they don't add any side characters that would be a problem. It's interesting that hallmark is using the same two leads in the Chasing Waterfalls movie, since they will be playing different characters. I wonder why?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I completely understand your hesitancy with watching the new movies. It's been such a blessing to have everyone share reviews here - so we all know which movies are safe for family viewing and which ones are not.

      These new movies above all sound cute, but you're right, it's possible any side character could be added in.

      As for "Chasing Waterfalls," over Christmas Hallmark paired up many actors & actresses that have worked together before... they probably thought these two (Cindy Busby and Christopher Russell) were great together last year, so... why not another one! I agree, it is definitely interesting. Plus, the story in "Chasing Waterfalls" kinda sounds like a mix of "Love in the Forecast," along with "Nature of Love," the Spring Fling movie from last year where Christopher Russell played the outdoor nature guide.

      Anyway, thank you so much for your comment. I'm so glad you enjoy your visits here! We're happy to have you in the *It's a Wonderful Movie* family! :)

      Blessings! Net

    1. I know just how you feel. We have to always be on guard these days, which is really sad when we used to be able to leisurely enjoy Hallmark movies any time they were on. It's sad that has changed, but that's the reality of the world we live in today. It's actually amazing we had it this long.

      Glad you enjoy visiting here and getting our perspective on which movies are family friendly. Blessings to you!

    2. Because they don’t see same-sex couples as not family friendly, sadly. As NET says, it’s the world we live in now. πŸ˜”

    3. I'm getting more and more disillusioned with Hallmark. Somehow I stumbled upon this article where the heads of Hallmark are almost bragging about how proud they are to be gradually adding in (sneaking in!!) more and more homosexual ("diverse and inclusive" -- eye roll!!) characters so that their viewers will start to accept these "families" and "couples" as normal. https://www.christianheadlines.com/contributors/michael-foust/hallmark-channel-promises-more-lgbt-characters-this-is-who-we-are-ceo-says.html

      I'm having a hard time deciding what to do, whether to keep watching and thereby giving them my approval. I'm also torn about continuing to buy Hallmark dvds. I usually just buy all the movies that I've liked, but I'm struggling with the idea of giving Hallmark more money that they can pour into making movies that go against my beliefs and values. I can just imagine the heads of the company laughing hysterically at all us gullible Christians who keep funneling money their way. We're basically paying for them to keep producing these tacky movies. They throw us a few clean, family-friendly "bones" and continue to use our money to make the other type movies. I used to think they would take note that the top selling dvd's are the family-friendly ones, but I'm beginning to think they really don't care. So long as they keep making money (off of us!), they'll probably continue to push their progressive movies. If the money were to dry up, then MAYBE they would pay attention.

      Like I said, I'm seriously torn about what to do. But in the meantime, I'm grateful for you, Net, and all the other folks here who let us know which movies are not family-friendly.

    4. Jane, I understand your heart on this completely, as I've been wondering, too, the direction I should take with sharing movies on my blog. Each time I get discouraged, I ask The Lord what to do, and I always seem to receive a message, either in comments or via e-mail, from someone who appreciates *It's a Wonderful Movie* and the fact that we are taking a stand for biblical morals here. They appreciate knowing the programming they can watch with their families, especially these days when the options are more and more limited. Those responses always uplift my spirit, but please know, I'm still not pleased with the progressive agenda that keeps creeping in on Hallmark.

      Over the Christmas season, I know so many people appreciated the wonderful reviews you gave us here, Jane. You were wonderful at informing/warning thousands of people on what was good and what was not good to watch. I know God used you to reach many, you have no idea how many homes you touched this Christmas with your reviews - and still continue to reach. I certainly was one of those who was grateful for your many, wonderful reviews.

      I've received so many messages from people who used (and are still using) the 2020 Christmas Movie Review list as a guide on what is family friendly to watch - and you were certainly an instrumental part of that.

      God bless you, Jane! Hugs to you, my dear friend!

    5. Jane~ I understand your hesitation with buying the family friendly movies. I added a bunch of the Mystery Movies to my Amazon wish list and was feeling guilty because of the new direction. But I feel that eventually more and more of the family friendly will get pushed out. They may make some money now but if pay $20 for a movie once and then only watch our copy every time they show it they will lose ad revenue which is what they are after. Thank you for all your reviews it helps when choosing what to watch and what to skip.~ Laura

    6. Laura, Thank you so much for sharing our concern here. I so appreciate your sweet comment.

      I was already deeply hesitant, but today I'm even more concerned on the future of Hallmark from the news that is coming out regarding the layoffs of approximately 20 people from the Hallmark network, some who have been at the company for MORE THAN 20 YEARS! According to the article I read on this, during the beginning of the pandemic they were all promised no one would be let go. I guess that has changed. Since they are letting go those who have been with the channel for such a long time, it seems they will surely be moving further in this new direction. I pray not, but it seems inevitable.

      I'm so glad you enjoy the reviews here, Laura. Please feel free to share your take on movies with us anytime. God's blessings to you! :)

      Delete
    7. Laura, Thanks for your note. I agree!! All the reviews and the collective insight from everyone on this blog are such a gift! And you do make a good point about purchasing a dvd vs. the ad revenue.
      Net, I wonder if it would be possible for you to have an arrangement with Christianbook.com like you have with Amazon where you get a percentage when folks from your blog make purchases? I truly know nothing about the beliefs of the folks who run christianbook.com or other such websites, but I'm under the impression that I would rather give my money to them whenever I can instead of Amazon. (I give WAY too much money to Amazon and really need to cut the cord soon!!! :))

    8. Jane, this reply is a few days late but my thoughts on buying the DVD's; we might have limited time to get those DVD's that are acceptable by us before they will not be available. If Hallmark continues on the path they have chosen, these DVD's will be all we will have to watch.

      When a movie I love comes on again, I watch it from my DVR so Hallmark won't get the ratings for it. With them letting employees go must mean they are losing lots of money. Low ratings=low advertisements. No advertising=no income for Hallmark.

      Folks, there are more of us than there are of them. Stand firm in your faith! God is watching.

      To you Net, please continue what you are doing. God will act in due time! Now is the time for us to trust the Lord.

    9. Jane & kitkat, Hugs to both of you! I treasure your friendship and value your perspective on what is taking place. It means so much to me.

      Jane, I looked into CBD a year or so ago. I wasn't sure if it was well known for others to purchase there. It's hard to beat Amazon's prime shipping, but if you're interested, I will definitely look into it again. I have purchased there myself many years - Christian books, Bibles, devotionals, t-shirts, etc... It's a great, reputable Christian business. I've always received my packages in good condition - and there is always scripture on the boxes! I can never get rid of them, so I have several of them in my garage!

      kitkat, Thank you for sharing your heart with Jane. I love when you all share with one another - it makes us feel like one big family here! And, your enthusiastic support for this blog means the world to me! :)

      God's Blessings to you both!!!

    10. Everyone is so sweet on this blog!! Net, please don't go out of your way to sign up with CBD just for my benefit, I was just trying to think of options other than Amazon. I have a love/hate thing with Amazon!! They sucked me in with their customer-friendly service and easy way to shop and now it's sooooo very hard to cut the cord. I'm not impressed with their politics and unfriendly stance toward people of faith, so I'll keep trying to sever my addiction and one of these days I'll do it (I hope)!! I need an Amazon recovery program! :)

    11. Jane, awe... I understand completely! 100%! I've been feeling much the same way. It's so hard. It seems nearly every place we shop seems to have some sort of agenda these days or, at least, they are pressured into doing things. I look for alternatives, too, when possible, but it seems like these big stores have the better supply and generally, best prices. It's no problem looking into CBD, at all. I am aware that they do have an affiliate program. Like I said, I just wasn't sure enough followers here would be aware of them. I'm happy to look into it - because I'm glad to give you and others another option.

      God bless you, Jane!!!

      Love Never Fails was an originally title for A Valentine’s Date

    2. Yes, "A Valentine’s Date" was the title Hallmark used for the movie when they first premiered it.

      However, if you're looking for the DVD, it is listed under "Your Love Never Fails" at Amazon and Hallmark has it listed on their web-site under "Your Love Never Fails." I think they changed it back in 2011 so it didn't seem strange to play a movie with Valentine's Day in the title year round. Now they don't seem to care about that as much - since they play seasonal movies out-of-season any time of the year.

      By the way, I have a review of this sweet movie - here, if you'd like to see it.

  13. Looking forward to One Perfect Wedding (wish it was One Winter Wedding), I love Taylor Cole and Jack Turner together, that series is awesome! Also looking forward to Cindy Busby and Christopher Russell, I really enjoyed Love in the Forecast. I think they're a great match. And also Italia Ricci and Ryan Paevey in Boot camp. It should be good. Thanks to the reader for the list of the movies that are coming down the road, looking forward to the Kayla Wallace one. I think we'll be seeing a lot of her soon.

  14. I don't know about you but I would like to see a Christmas movie either on Hallmark Movies and Mysteries or Hallmark Channel maybe 90 percent of the movie that takes place in a church.
