Movie Reviews:

๐ŸŒน "Watched Warming Up to You. It's family friendly and really cute. Cindy and Chris are great together, once again." ~Allie B

๐ŸŒน "Warming Up to You is a light-hearted and fun family-friendly comedy/romance. Christopher Russell and Cindy Busby have been in many movies together and have good chemistry. I enjoyed watching this movie with my 13-year old daughter." ~Anonymous

๐ŸŒน "Warming Up to You is sweet and fun and made me actually laugh-out-loud a time or two! Enjoyed seeing Cindy Busby and Christopher Russell together again. It's obvious (as others said above) they have an easy-going chemistry together. Also, it's a great movie for encouraging exercise and a healthy diet. Loved Cindy's pretty pink dress near the end of the movie (seen in the poster above). Overall, it's a delightful watch and family-friendly!" ~Net

๐ŸŒน "I enjoyed Warming Up to You and Road Trip Romance." ~dstoutholcomb


Movie: Road Trip Romance

Starring: Natalie Hall, Corey Sevier

Premieres: Saturday, May 14, 2022

Storyline: An escalating series of unfortunate events keeps delaying a young woman’s journey (Hall) to her sister’s wedding -- a journey she is forced to take with the guy (Sevier) who was her biggest rival in high school.

Movie Reviews:

๐ŸŒน "Sad to say it had its sprinkling of wokeness. I guess anything from now on from Hallmark will have its interjection of things that don’t really add anything to the story. Longing for story’s that aren’t cookie cutter themes with predictable endings." ~JoCo

๐ŸŒน "What did you think of Road Trip Romance? I thought that Road Trip Romance was terrible." ~Chris

๐ŸŒน "I'm sure somebody enjoyed "Road Trip Romance," but it wasn't me. In fact, it was one of my least favorite Hallmark movies ever. The part where the couple is in the small quirky town with the Renaissance Festival was just bizarre. But, it was family friendly. ~Amy G.

๐ŸŒน "Road Trip Romance.... I truly enjoyed this film. It was so sweet and funny. Loved the Renaissance Fair and all the kind people. All of it was great, especially loved the kindness and forgiveness she shows to Della. And it was 100% friendly!! And so much chemistry between the too! I thought the actress who played Della looked a lot like Alexa PenaVega if you ignore the curly hair and I thought the actress who plays the bride looked a lot like Julie Gonzalo. Almost like they could be sisters! Another thing I thought was funny... during the Renaissance, no one was using electricity, but the women obviously used curling irons. ;)" ~Abigail

๐ŸŒน "I agree with someone who wrote that Road to Romance was terrible. One of the worst HM movies I've seen. The female lead was not anything as good an actress as most HM channel has as their lead." ~Anonymous

When her well-meaning co-worker tells dog-loving Trevor that Kyra has an agility-trained dog, she plays along. Trevor is excited for Kyra to enter her dog in the upcoming agility contest the store is sponsoring, leaving her with a canine quandary -- she must adopt a dog and get him competition ready, stat. With the help of Mark (Rosner), the head of the dog rescue, she may pull it off and learn some lessons of her own along the way.

Movie: Heart of the Matter

Starring: Aimee Teegarden, Gail O'Grady, Andrew Zachar, Chandler Massey

Premieres: Sunday, May 15, 2022

Storyline: Andie (Teegarden) is a cardiologist who is devastated by the accidental death of a patient (Massey). As she and his grieving mother (O’Grady) overcome their sorrow through forgiveness, they learn that acceptance leads to hope.

Movie Reviews:

❤ "Heart of the Matter is, probably the most emotional HMM movie I've ever seen! And it's also clean. So, if you're interested, might be best to have some tissues handy." -Maria

❤ "Heart of the Matter: Family friendly, but what a heavy topic! A doctor loses her patient because of negligence on her part, and she suffers emotionally for it. Plus, the patient's mother is angry and sues the doctor. Aimee Teegarden has been great in other movies, but they don't hold a candle to her performance in this one! The emotions and the suffering she shows...you can't help but suffer along with her! I recommend watching it if you are in the mood for a very serious, non-light-hearted movie, and as Maria said, you may want to have some tissues handy." ~Mark 25

"I thought that Heart of the Matter was a great film." ~Chris

"I started to watch Heart of the Matter. Got 20 minutes into it, but had to stop watching because it was so sad. I really like the special needs young man. I was glad to hear this film is family friendly. I just couldn’t watch anymore. Did she get married in the end?? And Maria... you are so right. Her acting was terrific, and I only saw a little bit. It did make me grateful that my Dad got there in time during his heart attack last fall (he is doing really well, BTW. Thank you for all the prayers. God is so good!" ~Abigail

"At last, a movie with heart. Could be relatable to anyone that has faced loss." ~JoCo

"Heart of the Matter was a very intense movie, great acting all around. But, for some reason I just couldn't get into it. I watched the whole movie, but almost turned it after about 20 minutes. It's not one I will watch again!" ~Joyce in Carolina


Movie: Rip in Time

Starring: Torrey DeVitto, Niall Matter

Premieres: Sunday, May 22, 2022

Storyline: Sarah (DeVitto) is an organic farmer who meets a man (Matter) named Rip Van Winkle Jr., who claims to be from 1787. Soon, she discovers old-fashioned romantic feelings that might be just as crazy as his story.


After reading through the storylines above, I think I'm most looking forward to seeing the new rom-com premieres on the Hallmark Channel, however the time travel story coming to Hallmark Movies & Mysteries also piques my interest.

I know many may be surprised to see Cindy Busby and Christopher Russell paired together again. They have wonderful chemistry in their prior films, Love in the Forecast and Chasing Waterfalls. Hopefully, this one will be just as cute, but I do wonder if viewers will think their pairing is over-done.

Speaking of good pairings, I'm just loving the idea of Natalie Hall and Corey Sevier together. Natalie is always so fun and energetic on screen and Corey is a favorite of mine, as well. In fact, I was just recently watching him in a movie on another network and was thinking how much much I would like to see him more - and then this movie popped up in Hallmark's May schedule. I'm beyond thrilled, to say the least!

As for Andrea Brook's new movie, Romance to the Rescue, you may recall, she mentioned this movie in our interview, just a few weeks ago. At the time she couldn't mention where it was airing, but she did reveal it would be coming soon. It's great to finally know we will be seeing this movie about pet adoption on Hallmark in May!

Blessings to you all, Net


  1. What a great start to April - this is a fantastic line-up for May by Hallmark - they only had 2 new movies on the main channel last year.

    I would have to say that Aimee Teegarden is probably my favourite Hallmark actress at the minute - her face is so expressive.

    The synopsis for Heart Of The Matter doesn't give much away so it will be interesting how that movie develops, no mention of a love interest.

    The brilliant My Family Christmas Tree was let down slightly by the lack of definition in the relationship between Aimee and Andrew Walker.

    While I'm iffy about time-travel movies Rip In Time sounds intriguing.

    The movie that most captures my interest is Road Trip Romance - Natalie Hall and Corey Sevier have been undervalued by Hallmark for a long time - this sounds like a rip-roaring good old-fashioned Rom.Com - can't wait for it - Florence

  2. Interesting background to Warming Up To You with Cindy Busby and Christopher Russell.

    This was originally shown in Portugal last October under the title Love In Action - Florence

  3. Looks pretty good. -Maria

  4. What of these movies are you looking forward seeing?

  5. I’m most excited for Rip in Time. I love Niall Matter and I think he will be fun to watch in this role. I imagine it might be similar in nature to A Timeless Christmas, which also had a unique and similar plot.

  6. Not a Cindy Busby Fan so do not watch her movies. Looking forward to the other movies.

    1. Did you like A Godwink Christmas: Meant for Love where Cindy Busby has MS?

    2. Chris, That is personally one of my favorite Cindy Busby movies. I also like many of her other movies, as well... Royal Hearts, Autumn Stables, Unleashing Mr. Darcy, Marrying Mr. Darcy, Love in the Forecast, Heart of Down Under, Chasing Waterfalls, Toying with the Holidays, Joy for Christmas, etc...

      I'm looking forward to this new movie! :)

    3. I like Cindy Busby; she seems very sweet!

  7. Road Trip Romance with Corey Sevier and Natalie Hall is my pick. Love watching Corey Sevier in anything.

  8. I’m still waiting for Meet Me in New York
    Starring Brooke Nevin & Corey Server

    Scented by Love
    Marshall Williams

    I hope it Hallmark

    Bummer if there’s no June Weddings

    Those movie will air in June

    Expect for May 28, 2022

    1. I'm hoping for those two movies too but if they air anywhere it will surely be on UPtv.

      Waiting a bit apprehensively to see what UP will air in May - they only had 2 Rom.Coms last year - Florence

  9. I can't wait to see "A Rip in Time." Love this plot and I love watching Niall Matter(almost typed Nick Miller ;) So glad he joined the Aurora Mysteries. He is always involved in a good mystery and such a gentleman and good to Aurora. So nice to see.

    I love all of Natalie's movies as well. Loved the food truck one the most. Think it was called "You Bacon Me Crazy."

  10. Not interested in the Cindy Busby/Christopher Russell one. Thanks for the updates!


  11. Are you looking forward to seeing Love, Classified which premieres the day before Easter?

    1. Chris, I'm not watching that movie based on the content.

    2. Same here; it also seems very contrived and obviously stupidly woke. I hope that Hallmark gets past this pandering to loudmouthed special interests.

  12. It’s finally literary movies for Hallmark & I hope GAC Family does too

    Rip Van Winkle is literary

  13. I wonder about Nancy Drew & The Hardy Boy Mysteries for Hallmark on HMM

    Bailey Madison as Nancy Drew
    The Hardy Boys are Brothers or Cousins

    If someone says there’s spin-off Nancy Drew & The Hardy Boys - I think actually a young girl to solve cases of mysteries

  14. If I was asked who my favourite Hallmark actress was I think I'd have to say currently Aimee Teegarden.

    I'm confused though about Heart Of The Matter.

    It is described as Drama/ Romance so I was excited when I saw that Chandler Massey was in the cast as I really liked him in Next Stop Christmas but reading above he is the patient who dies.

    Net, who is the actor photographed above as the airline Captain - he would look to be Aimee's love interest?

    I have a sinking feeling he could turn out to be the boy's father and I 'll be ready for screaming if it's another previously married lead - Florence

  15. Watched Warming Up to You. It's family friendly and really cute. Cindy and Chris are great together, once again.

    1. Allie B, Thank you so much for sharing this review with us! Good to hear how much you enjoyed this movie.

      I posted your review above. ^

  16. I'm sure somebody enjoyed "Road Trip Romance," but it wasn't me. In fact, it was one of my least favorite Hallmark movies ever. The part where the couple is in the small quirky town with the Renaissance Festival was just bizarre. But, it was family friendly.

  17. Hallmark better sit up and take notice.

    Looks like the theme of Heart Of The Matter was too heavy for most viewers.

    Overnight viewing figures were a total disaster of less than 600k - I think this makes it the least watched Hallmark movie ever.

    Meanwhile on the main channel Road Trip Romance only pulled in a dismal 1.52m.

    Worrying times.
