  1. I heard the viewers saying “Christmas with a Crown” is worst movie ever. It’s filmed last 2 years ago

    1. Yeah, I've heard some reviews like that, too. The movie was on YT for awhile, and I was going to watch it there, but it was taken down before I had the chance.

      Delete
    2. IMDB reviewers give it a 6.7 average and except for one review people rate it pretty high. I'm going to give a try because it sounds fun to me!

  2. Lifetime's schedule looks full but according to Reel One Entertainment they picked up the following 3 Christmas movies none of which are in the above list:

    Christmas A La Carte - Erin Agostino, Dillon Casey
    Loving Christmas - Brittany Bristow, Oliver Renaud
    A Snowy Christmas - Elysia Rotaru, Damon Runyan

    They'd hardly show these at any other time of year - Florence

    1. Florence, that's interesting. Wonder if they will add them in somewhere or if the could go to their streaming source or Lifetime Movie Network???

      The last one you mentioned, "A Snowy Christmas" starring Elysia Rotaru and Damon Runyan, is going to air on UPtv, so maybe there has been a change of plans on the other two movies, too.

  3. I'll be honest...I haven't watched many of the Lifetime Christmas movies in past years, and by the looks of the ones above, I probably won't this year either. (Too many same-ol'-same-ol' plots...and who are a lot of these actors??) That said, I will be watching the following four, because of who is in them: Christmas in Tune, The Enchanted Christmas Cake, Toying with the Holidays, and It Takes a Village. Which is fine, because I know I will be keeping busy with a lot of the Hallmark and GAC movies, and my TV (and eyesight) can only take so much!! :)

    1. Mark 25 - YEEEESSSS!!!! I was thinking the same thing, too! Who are some of these actors??? It is an overwhelming amount of movies, isn't it? Like you, I'm planning to watch more on Hallmark and ALL of GAC Family's Christmas!!!

      Delete
    2. Lol...I think Lifetime & Hallmark are both that way. I love my Hallmark movie's, but most of them made today is the same movie over and over, with different actors. Also, I wish they would all stop doing the same things in every movie, especially Hallmark. Every movie, the almost kiss, the couple are about to kiss for the first time, and the phone rings or someone interrupts them. Then you have the food on the face. The couple is eating, and they get a little food on their face, just so the other one could pick it off. Then you have the girl falling in the leading man's arms, she is using climbing a ladder and loses her balance, and falls into his arms. Then there's the plots. The leading actor/actress goes home to stop a family business or home from being bought. While home they fall back in love with their ex. Then there's the leading man/woman who gets a new job, only to give it up for the person they love. These are just a few things that are the same over and over again. The older Hallmark movies were done so much better. I think the problem is, their trying to make new movies constantly, that their not making the best product all the time. It should be quality over quantity.

    3. You are absolutely right, Marlena.
      I feel the same way.

  7. I am most looking forward to seeing “A Gospel Christmas” with Kirk Franklin. With Jesus being the reason for the season, I love that there is a movie with a gospel music theme! I sure hope Lifetime doesn’t somehow make this movie inappropriate. Contemporary Christian Music artists such as Amy Grant, Michael W Smith and Rebecca St James have all acted in movies before and have their own Christmas music albums, so I wish we would see them in movies featuring their music. Married couple Vince Gill and Amy Grant could even be featured in a movie together.

    2. Amy Grant and Vince Gill in a Christmas movie where they sing, that would be a dream come true!

    3. Kathy, I agree! I watched them in a Christmas concert together and it was awesome!

  8. What do you think of this new Christmas TV movie schedule? Do you think it will help or hurt their ratings? I think that with all of the competition, especially GAC, having the movies start late may hurt the network even with the “30 in 30” plan?

    1. I think the new Lifetime schedule is interesting; I agree it is a late start and quite a commitment to ask people to watch a new movie every night in December. Usually people are too busy for that. I don't how that will go.

      Lots of people like to watch classic Christmas movies, too, on Hallmark and movies & cartoons on Freeform, local stations, etc... throughout the week- so that will have an effect, as well.

      Hallmark attempted several years ago to do new movies on Tuesday and Thursday nights - and obviously that didn't go as great as they anticipated, so they switched back to weekends.

      Guess we'll see how this goes for Lifetime! :)

    2. I kind of like the idea of new Christmas movies not being all bunched together on one night. Instead we get to watch them as a one a day treat. At least they are trying something new!

    3. I agree with your faves to see, especially REBA MCENTIRE'S CHRISTMAS IN TUNE and the ENCHANTED CHRISTMAS CAKE. I am also looking forward to HOLIDAY IN SANTA FE with Mario Lopez and his 11-yr-old daughter and PEOPLE PRESENTS: BLENDING CHRISTMAS with several Brady Bunch alums. I actually find at least a couple of faves on Lifetime every year and hoping for the same this season. SNOWED-INN CHRISTMAS is an example of a wonderful Lifetime Christmas movie and I had to own it.

  9. Has anybody heard if the networks will air Christmas movies 24 hours a day from the time the first movies air through Christmas Day or New Year’s Day? Of course, Lifetime says 24 hours a day, but it never is. Lifetime is airing a couple of movies on Friday, 10/07 and Thursday and Friday, 10/07 and 10/08. However, they are definitely not all family-friendly. However, having this sprinkling of holiday movies make makes me wonder if some networks will start earlier than advertised as they have sometimes done in the past. I sure wish LMN would air their old Christmas movies. I can’t look it up because I am typing this, but I remember an old one with Nancy McKeon, something like “Comfort and Joy”. Although its premise was not family-friendly, it is an example of a movie that could air on LMN.

  11. Sorry if it sounds harsh but in the majority of cases I really find a lot of the pairings in the Lifetime Christmas movies decidedly strange.

    However, during January and February we will work our way through most of them and we will have the advantage of knowing to avoid them if they are not Family Friendly enough - Florence

  12. When I read the lineup yesterday, I thought it was interesting how they are doing a new movie each night instead of starting in October. Wonder if they're hoping to get the market away from HC on those nights where HC has re-airings of the movies.

  13. Between Lifetime, Hallmark’s three channels, UP TV, and the two GAC two channels , and specials on PBS, Networks, TBN, Freeform, CMT, TMC, AMC…. goodness, a lot to sort through and decide what is worth watching. Which will lift my spirt? Which really give me goosebumps, and sweet memories? Oh my, and adding in old favorites. No shortage of things to watch!

  14. I didn't even realize that Lifetime had Christmas movies until about 3 or 4 years ago. Then one night I sat down to watch that channel (on a recommendation from someone else) and Christmas movie that was airing was not what I wanted my little ones to be watching. I hadn't watched it again until last year when a movie was recommended. I did like it and I wish I wrote it down. Some of the ones that Net wrote as possibilities are the ones that seemed interesting to me too. ~Mary~

    I'm interested in seeing Christmas With A Crown with Lisa Durupt and Marcus Rosner. So good to see them cast as leads, especially Lisa! My husband and I have said for years we didn't understand why Hallmark had not featured Lisa in a lead role. I hope that one is family friendly!!! tThanks for the list Net!

  17. Since Hallmark Channel or Hallmark Movies and Mysteries doesn't do Christmas movies that takes place in a church will Lifetime have Christmas movies that are religious and takes place in a church?

    2. Well, yet again I had to turn the station. Lifetime's Saying Yes to Christmas had a scene 30 minutes in with a psychic and a mention of something about exorcism. I couldn't turn it fast enough. I was having a hard time getting into it in the first place. Just wanted to share to let others know. Merry Christmas Net and thank you for being a family friendly place to visit!

  19. "A Christmas Village Romance" is family-friendly and pretty cute. Its budget wasn't huge and they shouldn't have bothered with throwing in the snow at the end, but the creative storyline and period costumes made me smile! :-)
