πŸŽƒ Visit the Pumpkin Patch in "Home for Harvest" and see 4 New TV Movie Premieres This Weekend! πŸƒπŸ‚ #AutumnHarvest #FallIntoLove πŸŽƒ SEE HERE:



Hello Friends,

It's the first weekend in October... the season of pumpkin patches, Autumn harvest, leaves turning, flannel shirts and blankets, campfires and s'mores, and so much more. For those of us, who experience the season in all of it's colorful splendor, it is such a beautiful time of year.

Unfortunately, for our friends in Florida and the islands nearby, it's also the season for hurricanes; plus, storms are moving along the Carolinas and up the eastern coast. I pray all of you who visit here at It's a Wonderful Movie are safe and your homes did not suffer any damage. Please know you are continually in our thoughts and prayers. 

I hope many of you will be able to relax after the storm has fully passed and enjoy the new movies airing this weekend. Blessings to you all!

See details on the four new movies below...

My #1 Movie Pick this weekend is "Home for Harvest" on Great American Family. I especially love how it is fall-themed. Can't wait to see this one! Even though it's been available to stream for awhile, it's one I just hadn't caught, yet. So... I'm looking forward to finally doing so this weekend.

We also have this delightful review from Abigail, a regular reviewer here at It's a Wonderful Movie...

🍁 "Home for Harvest is family friendly. I saw it a couple years ago and just last loved it! ...Finally time for pumpkins!😍 God bless!" ~Abigail

Florence, who also contributes wonderful reviews, provided her thoughts on UPtv's "A Country Romance." See her review here!

I also wanted to share, that I am intrigued by the new mystery, Nikki & Nora: Sister Sleuths; however, I wanted to caution that several press images show the characters drinking in a bar setting. I just wanted to be sure you all were aware before watching.

There are only 3 episodes left of Chesapeake Shores. If you'd like to see details on this weekend's episode, titled: I Get a Kick Out of You, then click here.

Disclaimer: Please know when I share a movie, this is NOT an endorsement of any of the actors involved, personally or professionally, with their other TV/film projects.

Please note: I have not pre-screened the new movies airing this weekend. If you'd like to post a review on whether a film is family-friendly, please share in comments. Thank you to both Abigail and Florence for sharing reviews!


Happy Fall and Blessings to you all!
Please take care, everyone...

  2. I personally liked A Country Romance, Nikki and Nora could be interesting.

    I'm not saying anything about Home For Harvest but I can't wait to see the reviews here for it - Florence

  3. Sorry to put this here but want to make sure more people have the opportunity to see it.

    Last month, I got a Roku and recently found what is listed below. I have not yet watched any movies from some of the following so do not know if all of their content is family friendly but definitely feel like these are worth checking out further: (Almost all of the info. comes directly from each source.)

  4. Nikki & Nora looks kinda cheesy. I have a feeling it won't have a strong cast like Aurora, Garage Sale, 101, Hailey Dean, ect. I'll give it a try and will let you know if it is family friendly.

    I don't like alcohol scenes either,(don't like alcohol period) hopefully they will be short. And more of a restaurant than a bar.

    My don't feel comfortable watching A County Romance because the actor Jonathan Bennett is gay.

  8. Girlfriendship is family friendly. 3 friends head Samara Williams’ birthday weeklong journey for Wilding Out Retreat. Renee convinces Stacey for 3 recommendation to book for Wilding Out Women’s Treat - Wilding Our Retreat on her phone by choosing Rewilding Women’s Retreat. After a booking mixup; Renee, Samara, & Eva end up in Editso Island instead Margarita Island. Somewhat booking mixup because oh Stacey books a wrong resort when customer tells her it’s not what’s she saying, Stacey tells her shush! Since Stacey read magazine about Wilding Out Retreat. Samara, Renee, Eva rediscover passion, purpose, romance. They meet Ariella & Dr. Kareem Benjamin. Samara’s passion for painting by using her easel & paintbrushes. Dr. Kareem Benjamin has a Daughter named Joy who wants to to Art School who to paint. Samara & her Mom are painters & also, Joy too. Samara, Renee, $ Eva return home from vacation. Samara is with her Mom who discussing about paintings. Renee returns her own barbershop.

  12. My mom and I watched Nikki and Nora Sister Sleuths tonight and enjoyed it. There is drinking as some had mentioned from the preview, but partially because some of the scenes take place at a cop bar (a source of information). I thought the characters were well developed and the clues to pick up on were good. If you pay attention, you just might solve it before the big reveal. As a side note- the nod to Nick and Nora Charles of The Thin Man murder mysteries (1930s-40s) was subtle but fun.

    1. Thanks, I'll give it a try tonight. Was it family friendly??

      Delete
    2. Nikki and Nora: Sister Sleuths was a good mystery movie, and it was family friendly for teen and up. There is mention of one suspect’s affair (obviously not in a positive light). I hope they make a second movie as I liked the characters. It also does not follow the usual Hallmark formula! I watched it with my mom and 13-year-old, and all of us enjoyed it.

    3. Anonymous reviewers, So nice to hear your thoughts on Nikki and Nora. I'm also glad you were able to watch comfortably with your family.

      I posted both of your reviews here:

  14. OK, friends! Why didn't someone correct me on this site when I posted Benjamin Hollingsworth as Woolsworth? Have no clue where I picked up his last name. I am laughing out loud.

  15. I see they put Christmas CEO on another dvd set. Not a set I would buy for $30. Would be nice to put it on with maybe My Christmas Family Tree or Return to Christmas Creek and Christmas Bow. Now that is a set I would buy.

  16. Over the weekend, I finally watched Splash of Love. Another keeper for me. It was a Benjamin Hollingsworth weekend for me. After watching Can't Buy My Love, Splash of Love, and Romance in Style, ( Benjamin Hollinsworth was fantastic in all 3), but his chemistry with Jaicy Elliot was the best. For me, Romance in Style is near the top of my list for 2022. The messages were subtle, but they were there. The saying,"never judge a book by its cover", is certainly proven in this movie.
