🎬 Streaming Movie Reviews at It's a Wonderful Movie - See Here:




Hello, Movie Friends!

Over the years as I've been blogging here at It's a Wonderful Movie, my main focus has always been on seeking the family-friendly movies airing on TV; however, the streaming world has definitely taken off through the years- full steam (or stream!) ahead.

I didn't think the streaming option would ever work for me since our internet speeds used to be somewhat slow, but as those have improved, so has my own interest in streaming movies.

One of the first streaming companies I purchased was PureFlix, which has now become Great American Pure Flix. I highly recommend this company as a streaming option because it offers faith-based, family-friendly movies and shows with trusted content.

I've also tried or currently own other subscriber-based streamers- Hallmark Movies Now, UP Faith & Family, Amazon Prime, etc... Plus, I'm definitely a fan of FrndlyTV, which lets viewers stream and record. It's actually the one I use the most often, and it's super user-friendly.

There are also many companies that offer FREE movies, which is great, even if we have to watch a few ads here and there.

Given the popularity of streaming, I thought I would give all of us a centralized location to share movie reviews with each other from these streaming services with others.

If you can give your streaming source, too, that would be great.


STREAMING MOVIE REVIEWS:

🎬 Xumo Loving Every Minute unfortunately is *NOT* family friendly. The main characters sister is marrying a woman. ~ Elizabeth Smith (January 8, 2024)

🎬 The Date Whisperer is not family friendly ~Anonymous (January 8, 2024)

🎬 The Date Whisperer - (watched on Dove Channel) In the first 10 minutes or so we learn the lead girl's father has left her mother after MANY years of marriage. The best man (the lead girl's love interest) gave the girl's father the advice to follow his heart - and he introduced him to his UNCLE Frankie. From watching the trailer, I learned the two men get married by the end of the movie. Thank goodness I only watched the first 10 minutes and the promo. ~Net (January 9, 2024)

🎬 Meet Me In New York - Starring Corey Savier & Brooke Nevin is certainly family friendly ~Anonymous (January 9, 2024)

🎬 We watched Love's Fast Lane on Xumo last night. I've no particular interest in cars but it was surprisingly good with a really sweet ending. ~Florence (January 10, 2024)

🎬 Far Haven - I happened upon this movie late last fall when it was on the Cowboy Channel, which we get as part of our paid-for Friendly TV app. I am not a western-type fan, but from the ads I’d seen for it, it looked like a truly wholesome movie and I knew some of the stars in it from other shows, so was really interested to see what it would be like. Well, I LOVED it. As a Christian myself, it had me sit up and take notice immediately when the main character is quoting some scriptures at the very start of the movie. Very cool!

I highly recommend your readers to watch this movie whenever they get a chance. It’s so worth it! And wonderful to fully support movies these days that not only truly wholesome, celebrating high morals and character, but are also well made like this one. ~Anonymous (February 1, 2024)

🎬 Reel One's Love's Fast Lane is clean and quite delightful! It'd make a great fit for UP TV! –Maria (March 13, 2024)

🎬 Reel One's The Perfect Man(icure) is a clean, delightful gem, would make a great fit for GAF or UP TV! (streaming on Xumo Play) –Maria (March 13, 2024)

🎬 Nicely's Law of Attraction is clean, and totally hilarious!! Would be a good fit for UP TV. (streaming on Pluto TV). -Maria (March 13, 2024 )

🎬 Reel One's The Wedding in the Hamptons is clean, beautiful, and AWESOME!! (streaming on Roku). –Maria (March 14, 2024)

🎬 Falling in Love in Niagara (Hallmark Movies Now) yes it's clean. ~Anonymous (March 15, 2024)

🎬 Reel One's Mr. Pawsitively Perfect is both clean and adorable! Would be a good fit for GAF or UP TV. -Maria (March 15, 2024)

🎬 Reel One's Just for Showmance is clean and quite nice. :) (streaming on Roku). –Maria (March 16, 2024)

🎬 Reel One's Steal your Heart is clean, hilarious and heartfelt. (streaming on Freevee). –Maria (March 16, 2024)

🎬 Reel One's The Beauty of Love is clean and delightful. (streaming on Fubo TV) –Maria (March 17, 2024)

🎬 Reel One's Love Amongst the Stars is clean and FANTASTIC!! Would make a perfect fit for GAF, UP TV or even Hallmark! –Maria (March 18, 2024)

🎬 The Beauty Of Love definitely worth a watch - there was good chemistry between the leads and I am a fan of Jonathan Stoddard anyway. Entertaining story. Too long ago now to give it a fair score but around 6/7 – Florence (March 19, 2024)

🎬 Love Amongst the Stars - Wasn't one of my favourite ROE movies. I like Patch May but thought he had an arrogant and unlikeable side to him.

The subject matter of astrology was a bit dry for me. From what I remember about a 5 – Florence (March 19, 2024 )

🎬 Reel One's The Wedding Arrangement is a clean, and perfectly delightful flick! Would be a perfect fit for GAF or UP TV. :) -Maria (March 19, 2024)

🎬 Reel One's Let Love Grow is clean, and so lovely! (yes, with today being the official start of spring, figured I'd watch some flowery themed movies.) (streaming on Roku). –Maria (March 19, 2024)

🎬 Reel One's Love Hacks is clean (with 1 small exception of the female lead trying to move in with her current boyfriend), funny and heartfelt. (streaming on Xumo Play). –Maria (March 19, 2024)

🎬 Reel One's The Love Gala has a gay best friend. –Maria (March 20, 2024)

🎬 Let Love Grow (watched on Xumo Play) reminded me a lot of Learning to Love, except she was the Landscaper instead of the Nanny. I liked the guy and the girls were sweet. The woman was a little pushy for me, though, and I didn't like how they incorporated her meditation to the universe. I think she also mentioned something about crystals, too, but she was talking really fast, so I'm not 100% sure. It was an okay one-time watch for me and thankfully, wholesome. Wish we could've seen more of them enjoying the lovely new garden. ~Net (March 20, 2024)

🎬 Reel One's "Sparks Over Brooklyn" is clean, but I had a hard time getting into it, almost like I couldn't really buy into the two leads actually falling in love. ~Alicia (March 20, 2024)

🎬 Tried to watch Reel One's Love at first Like on the Pluto TV app on my computer, but it kept messing up, and when I tried to fast forward a bit, it just froze and when I had to reload it a few minutes later, it wouldn't start again from where I left off at.

As far as I know, it's a clean movie. –Maria (March 20, 2024)

🎬 Reel One's The Love Issue is clean and pretty. –Maria (March 22, 2024)

🎬 Reel One's Signs of your Heart has a gay man. –Maria (March 24, 2024)

🎬 Scented with Love (2022) - (watched on Dove Channel) Super sweet and family-friendly. I enjoyed the chemistry between the leads (nice to see Marshall Williams from "When Hope Calls") and the delightful community and family in this film. ~Net (March 25, 2024)

🎬 Meet Me in New York (2022) - (watched on Dove Channel) First, this movie has excellent leads with Brooke Nevin and Corey Sevier. I really can't believe UPtv, Hallmark, or Great American Family hasn't snatched this one up! The chemistry is fantastic, it's funny, entertaining, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! There is one quick comment by Corey's character near the end about living with his previous girlfriend, but beyond that brief mention, the movie is completely G-rated and I loved the interaction between Corey and the young girl who portrayed his niece. This is one I'd love to have on DVD! ~Net (March 25, 2024)

🎬 From Italy with Amore (2022) - (watched on Roku Channel) Okay, I was enjoying this one at first with Rebecca Dalton and Marcus Rosner; it has great banter, love friction, and just really cute overall, but about 20 minutes in we learn that Marcus' brother in the movie is trying to adopt with his husband, Andrew. I quit watching from there. ~Net (March 25, 2024)

🎬 Hearts Under the Olive Tree (2023) - (watched on Xumo Play) I tried to watch this movie beyond 15 minutes, but the acting was rather bad, so I just had to give up. What I saw was family-friendly, but don't know beyond that. ~Net (March 25, 2024)

🎬 The Perfect Man(icure) (2023) - (watched on Plex) This movie is family-friendly and sweet. It's somewhat cheesy at times, but still cute enough for a one-time watch. ~Net (March 25, 2024)

🎬 Wedding in the Hamptons (2023) - (watched on Xumo Play) The lead girl in this is adorably clumsy, at times, which also makes her character likeable and charming. This movie is wholesome, except the lead girl, Jenna, pretends to be someone else (a popular social media influencer) to attend an extravagant wedding being held by a rich family. Overall, Wedding in the Hamptons is entertaining, but I'm not sure in this day and age with technology at everyone’s fingertips, that it's realistic that no one would recognize that Jenna is not who she says she is; however, the movie ended up being an enjoyable afternoon watch. ~Net (March 25, 2024)

🎬 A Royal Recipe for Love (2023) – (watched on Plex) Okay, yes this is a Royal movie and I know not everyone loves those, but in this case, it wasn’t that bad. Sure the king and queen were a bit stuffy and snobby, at first, but they softened up by the movie’s end. A baker in NYC, Emma, is invited by the Royal daughter to come bake for her family in Sanovia for her parent’s anniversary celebration. Once Emma arrives, she meets Oliver Batcher, the younger Royal son, who wants to be a chef – so Emma and Oliver have some tension working together in the kitchen. I truly enjoyed actor David Lafontaine as Oliver and his struggle to pursue a profession that he enjoyed, even if that job seemed beneath that of a royal. Initially, I always thought of actor David Lafontaine as the somewhat unlikeable, insensitive boyfriend in Christmas at the Plaza, but more and more, I have been enjoying seeing David and his caring/humorous side in various films as the lead. A Royal Recipe for Love is a delightful, family-friendly film. ~Net (March 25, 2024)

🎬 Reel One's Heart of the Manor is clean. (streaming on Roku). –Maria (March 27, 2024)

🎬 Reel One's Been there All Along is clean (if you ignore the office poster in the hallway with the small rainbow flag), goofy and charming. (streaming on Freevee). –Maria (March 28, 2024)

🎬 I got to watch Falling in Love With Niagara early, and I LOVED it!! –Maria (March 29, 2024)

🎬 Reel One's Vote One for Love is an AMAZING movie!! (streaming on Freevee). –Maria (March 30, 2024)

🎬 Reel One's Made for You with Love is a superb movie!! (streaming on Hoopla). –Maria (April 1, 2024)

🎬 Reel one's Love on the Reef (1 of Ansley's movies) is a cute, clean movie. (streaming on Freevee). –Maria (April 2, 2024)

🎬 Reel One's The PA and the Manhattan Prince is clean, and quite funny! (streaming on Tubi). –Maria (April 2, 2024)

🎬 Reel One's The Happiness Playbook is clean (just as long as you forget that the sister wants to move in with her unmarried boyfriend), and quite relaxing. –Maria (April 5, 2024)

🎬 Reel One's The Proposal Spot is hilarious, adorable, and clean (ish). (Very brief showing of rainbow hearts on the wall during a 'blink and you'll miss it' scene halfway through). (streaming on Roku). -Maria (April 5, 2024)

🎬 I watched the new film on Hallmark Movies Now titled "Legend of the Lost Locket" featuring some cast from WCTH and other familiar faces. It was such a nostalgic watch, very much reminded me of Hallmark the way it was many years ago. Family friendly and the best Hallmark film I have seen in a long time. ~Laura (April 5, 2024)

🎬 Reel One's Hearts Under the Olive Tree (not to be confused with the very similar sounding Hallmark movie from 2020!) is clean and charming. (streaming on Xumo Play). -Maria (April 10, 2024)

🎬 The Reel One Entertainment movie "Team Bride" appears to include 2 men in a relationship, who are in the supporting cast. ~Net (April 11, 2024)

🎬 "Team Bride" (in response to above comment) - Sadly this is so and they do have a fair amount of screen time. This is unfortunate because otherwise it's a decent little movie - Florence (April 12, 2024)

🎬 Net, I wanted to thank you also for a review. We saw Meet Me in New York was available to watch on Xumo Play, and I remembered your review, so we watched it and everyone loved it. Super cute family movie! Wonder why the networks haven’t picked this one up? ~Allie B (April 13, 2024)

    Sam works as a matchmaker, where she assists her clients with advice through earpieces during their dates. However, she has lost her edge after her parents' divorce. Additionally, her father is now getting married to his boyfriend, and the best man is her father's tennis trainer, Matt, who is very competitive. They soon find themselves in a bet where Sam has to succeed with her next client. However, Matt becomes overly involved in the challenge, which is particularly challenging as he was also the one who encouraged Sam's father to get divorced

  5. So, the Dove Channel is no longer family, friendly? How disappointing. We did recently get a mystery movie that was Dove approved and it was awful!!! NOT family- friendly! We obviously didn’t finish it and I threw it away. I don’t remember the name of it but it’s several years old. I don’t understand it with Dove. -Anonymous1

  6. I saw that BYU TV shows "Heartland" with no commercials. I'm going to try to install that on my TV. Also, Karen Kingsbury's "The Baxters" series is FINALLY released and is on Amazon Prime, I believe "free with Prime" to watch. It should be really good!

  18. "The Wedding Rule" from Reel One (Peacock streaming) – not family-friendly. Around 20 minutes in, a barista behaves like a silly middle school girl to convey his homosexual attraction to the uninterested male lead, even writing a heart and his phone number on the coffee cup. We see him fawning in a couple more scenes. Then, some language is tossed in: playing pin the tail on the donkey at a speed dating event, the two leads joke about being bad*** and jack***; later she exclaims "d*** it" when he correctly guesses a secret ingredient. There's also a scene with the male lead in nothing but a towel.

    Beyond the disappointing content, the movie just didn't draw me in, hitting neither a particularly sweet nor fun note. I was game for an unrealistic plot, but the whole marry-a-stranger-in-3-weeks never even got believable traction in the script. Feels like this one should have sped straight to marry-each-other-to-save-the-restaurant-then-grow-to-realize-it's-actually-for-real as the bulk of the movie. Overall, it left me bummed about the squandered talent. Oh well!

    1. Alicia, I actually quite liked this but then I particularly like Dennis Andres although certainly it's one of those where you have to suspend belief but there wasn't enough "unfriendly" content to spoil it for me.

      The scene where Max had a bare chest was nothing you wouldn't see on a beach anywhere and the towel completely covered his lower half.

      Not that it would have changed your opinion of the story line but you were unfortunate to watch it on Peacock.

      I saw it through UP Faith & Family and they had done a bit of editing - taken out bad language and there was no scene where the barista wrote his phone number on the coffee cup for Max - Florence

  34. I recently watched The Boxer and the Butterly on YouTube. I skimmed through it, but I did notice at the end, during the dance performance, one of the lines in the song says something like "I don't give a da**" or something along those lines. I felt that was surprising

  35. I also watched "Been There All Along" on YouTube and thought it was a cute movie. However, towards the end, the lead actor is in an airplane chatting with an older man who is telling him that he regrets not spending as much time with his kids when he was younger, and now he is visiting his grandkids as often as he can to make up for it. But he mentions going to see his son and his partner...there is nothing else said or shown, but I'm not sure what they were trying to imply there...

    1. I thought Been There All Along was one of the better ROE movies.

      Nothing you wouldn't have seen before but a nice little watch, imo family friendly, simply because the chemistry between the two leads was good which for me is the main criteria - Florence's rating 7

    1. That's right! Dear Viola is such a sweet, family friendly movie starring Kellie Martin. It originally premiered on UPtv in 2014. I've been noticing a lot of movies that previously aired on UPtv are now available to stream.

      Here's my original post for Dear Viola with my review:

      Thank you for reminding me about this delightful rom-com! I'll have to look it up and watch it again sometime. :)

  37. Divine Influencer – (streamed through Great American Pure Flix)

    At first, the main girl, Olivia ‘Liv’ Golden (portrayed by Actress, Lara Silva), is rather conceited and self-centered as a social media influencer, but when she loses her apartment and ends up working and living at the local homeless shelter – we begin to see the incredible influence this has on her life as she opens up to caring for others and discovers a renewed sense of faith.

    Overall, the entire cast is spectacular and the production quality is excellent. It was also nice to see Jesse Metcalfe have a role in this, as well, in the supporting cast.

    This inspirational, family-friendly movie is heartfelt, humorous, and uplifting! I would love to see this movie also air on Great American Family! ~Net

  51. New reviews:

    I tried, but The Engagement Dress (Tubi original from Reel One) is just too silly. Plus, I think 1 of the girls mentioned having a female lover.

    Reel One's The Love Hunt is a clean, and very interesting adventure! (streaming on Freevee).

  54. If anyone is looking for an intriguing mystery show with great friendships and a mature feel, then I recommend Nicely's 1 Season YA Aussie series 'Dive Club'. It's on Netflix, and I've seen the 1st 5 episodes, no offensivive content so far. -Maria

    1. And speaking of YA Aussie content from Nicely, 'A Second Chance: Rivals' has some mature content, but it's gay-free and is quite inspiring! (also on Netflix). -Maria

    2. Finished the show, and it ended on a very shocking cliffhanger that was never resolved. -Maria

  56. Vote One for Love – (Dove Channel Streaming, Tubi, Plex, Xumo Play, etc...)

    First of all, I loved Actor Jesse Hutch as Derek Casey, the small town good-ole-country rancher turned local politician, who just wants to make the world a better place for his family and community by running for mayor.

    Natasha Wilson portrays Candace, who is sent by Washington insiders to elevate Derek’s campaign and fast-track him on his way to running for Mayor, then for Senator. She also grew up in the same town, but it’s been awhile since she’s been home.

    This is a family-friendly movie, with one brief caution… in the first 20 minutes or so, Derek explains that he was lost as a teenager, so after high school graduation and breaking up with his girlfriend, Amy, he decided to join an organization in Africa to help build schools, hospitals, and such and when Derek returned home to Heartstone, Wyoming, he met his newborn daughter, Naomi, who he didn’t even know about. Since Amy wanted a career over being a mother, Derek raised the girl with the help of his sister, Stacy, on their family farm. It’s obvious Derek wants to right the wrongs of his youth as he has become over the years an honorable church-going citizen, a hardworking man, a caring father, and now a mayoral candidate.

    Overall, “Vote One for Love” is a nice, feel good story, of the local guy trying to compete with Washington corporate figures and big donors. The romantic spark between Candace and Derek was somewhat low-key for me, but still sweet.

    My favorite scene is when Derek gives an impromptu impassioned speech to a group of potential local supporters at the local church and he mentions how hard the community of Heartstone, Wyoming works giving back to others, and he includes two Bible verses, which he says later on to Candace that he must’ve remembered from his Sunday school days.

    Derek paraphrases Galatians 6:9, by saying “We must never grow weary of doing good,” and he quotes Proverbs 27:17, “Iron sharpens iron,” which is key in in explaining how each person in Heartstone influences the other by doing acts of kindness every day.

    “Vote One for Love” is one of those movies you’ll likely enjoy watching at least once. ~Net

  59. The Blind – (streamed on Great American Pure Flix)

    The production quality of the movie, The Blind, is excellent, as it depicts the early life of Duck Dynasty stars, Phil and Kay Robertson, and their young sons at the time, Alan, Jase, and Willie.

    The actors who portrayed Phil and Kay are phenomenal, as well as the supporting cast. Unfortunately, though, there were times that the background music drowned out the dialogue, and in spite of the fact that I have great hearing, I couldn’t make out what they were saying. Thankfully, Great American Pure Flix allows closed captioning, so I turned that on to catch any dialogue that was muffled by the music.

    This movie is not for young children and best-suited for a mature audience, as it does include violent and immoral behavior – heavy drinking, driving drunk, an automobile accident, a man shakes a woman and threatens her, there are accusations of infidelity, unwed teen pregnancy, and one character contemplates suicide.

    This impactful film is also a true redemption story, which shows that anyone can turn their life around – if they choose to ask for forgiveness and follow God. ~Net

  60. Finding Faith – (streamed on Great American Pure Flix)

    This is an impactful story with a heavy plot that deals with marriage difficulties and infertility for Victoria (an anonymous Christian advice columnist) and her husband, Billy, who is a musician, often traveling away from home.

    Victoria uses the pseudonym Faith, when giving advice to others, but she’s struggling to deal with her own life issues and finding her faith.

    Actor John Schneider portrays Victoria’s father; he’s trying to cope after losing his wife of many years, while Victoria grapples with the pain of losing her mother and a painful secret from the past.

    It is revealed that one character had an affair many years ago, and how grace and forgiveness have healed this person’s heart.

    Throughout the film, we see the wounds and scars of these characters – and gradually we see their healing after surrendering and turning to God.

    Due to the subject content, this is a movie best-suited for a mature audience. ~Net

  61. Love’s Second Act – (streamed on Great American Pure Flix)

    This is a lighthearted, family-friendly rom-com. The movie was a little slow, for me, at times, but it was still a nice watch. It’s the standard story of a woman (Jamie, played by Jodie Sweetin, "Full House," "Craft Me a Romance," "The Jane Mysteries"), who leaves her hometown years ago, then she returns and reconnects with her family and her childhood sweetheart (Nick, played by Tilky Jones, "Christmas Love Letter," "The Charm of Love").

    Of course, the family business, the local theater, is also in danger of being sold by Nick’s father (played by George Wendt, famously known as Norm on the sitcom, "Cheers"). The theater is a special memorable place for Nick and Jamie, where they worked together as teenagers.

    Overall, it is a pleasant, feel good movie with a happy ending.

    A side note for "Full House" fans… I thought it was kind of funny that Jodie played the older sister, and her sister’s name, of all names, was Stephanie.

    I wonder if "Love’s Second Act" might be one of the movies we’ll see on Great American Family later this Summer or early Fall. ~Net
