Hallmark has done it again with another great TV movie. Thank you
Hallmark for making this film.
I love this heartwarming, redemptive story about a family that faces trials, yet works things out in the end and that put a smile on my face. The acting was excellent and the movie was enjoyable. I watch this movie over and over every time it is on.
I gave it a 10 because it is one of Hallmark's best movies. It was exciting to the end and the performances by all the actors were outstanding. They are all seasoned actors. This movie will go down as a Hallmark classic. I hope you will love it too.
LMN has made a great mystery movie again. If you like mysteries, you
will love this exciting movie.
Nicole Johnson is a criminology professor who believes one of her students is innocent of committing murder and there starts her journey to find out who the real killer is.
There are many twists and turns in this movie that you keep your attention the entire time. It is suspenseful and entertaining. The acting of all the actors is excellent. Natasha Henstridge is always a skilled actress. The sound was clear and the script was well written.
I would definitely recommend this mystery thriller to everyone to watch and I am going to watch it again on LMN when it comes on. Keep doing a good job, LMN. I gave this movie a 10 because it was excellent. I would have liked a longer ending with more detail and explanation, but maybe LMN can work on that for their next mystery movie.
This is a wonderful, sweet, playful Hallmark movie about romance and
The host of a talk show is funny in a natural sense and not slapstick. Cupid comes along to help her find romance and the true meaning of love. Different relationships intertwine throughout the movie with twists and turns that are enjoyable and unexpected. I really enjoyed the acting and plot of the movie from beginning to end.
The only reason I rated this movie a one is because of the continual music in the background, which was really in the foreground, and louder than the speaking parts. The score is the typical Hallmark "bing-bong" music you hear over and over in so many of their movies. It is like listening to a concert and a lecture at the same time, making it difficult to hear every word clearly. There should be no music when the actors are speaking, unless it is a crucial, moving moment, but not continually throughout the regular speaking scenes. This loud continual music is so annoying. My brother says he just turns off their movies now when the music never stops. If you can't hear it all, then you can't rate it well. Watch some of the classic movies. No music in the general talking scenes.
This was a great and exciting murder mystery. It kept me guessing the
entire time who the murderer was. I thought I knew for sure who it was,
but I was wrong. There were many twists and turns in this thriller. The
acting was superb and I enjoyed watching every one of the actors. They
gave a wonderful performance. I would definitely watch this movie when
it comes on again. I gave this movie a 10 because it was a 10!
Hallmark is doing an excellent job with these mysteries. Please keep them coming. Just wish they would turn off the music when the actors are speaking, so you can hear every word clearly. The music is louder than the voices.
I was eagerly looking forward to an evening with Hallmark. The movie
"Matchmaker Santa" started out magical. The actors were well chosen and
the storyline imaginative and fun.
As I continued to watch the movie, I noticed that the music in the background was louder than the speaking voices. After one-half hour into the movie the music did not stop. It was like listening to a movie and a concert at the same time. You could not hear every word clearly and you had to strain to hear each word, and I have excellent hearing. I call it the ping-pong Hallmark music. It is as if a record is playing the same music for two hours over and over with high and low notes. There should be no music when the actors speak, unless it is for an endearing apex moment. The music in the background was continuous throughout the entire movie, ruining the movie for me.
So, disappointed as I was, I turned the channel and did not view the entire movie. I rated it "awful" because it was awful to watch.

If you love romance, you will love this movie. The season of Thanksgiving and Christmas comes alive in this movie, taking us on a planning tour of the Thanksgiving Day parade. The love/hate work relationship between Emily and Henry is motivating and carefully played out. They get to know each other as their own true selves and realize that they have a strong love interest. Emily is very funny and original, while Henry is supportive and generous. What better combination could one ask for? I would see this movie over and over. I love it. And, yes, I love a happy romantic ending. Love is what we all really search for and I watch Hallmark movies for that reason. Well done, Hallmark, and thanks for not playing music in the background while they were speaking, so you could hear each word clearly.
I love the Good Witch series. They are set in a small friendly town and
Grey House. This last movie in the series was a disappointment,
however, because of inconsistencies and discontinuity.
Where was the grandfather George and his girlfriend from the prior movie?
Where was Derek's girlfriend Betty from the prior movie?
Where was the song that Brandon wrote?
Where was Cassie's old Middleton shop with charm and mystery from the prior movie?
Where was the old Grey House with intrigue and character from the prior movie?
Where will Middleton be without Mayor Tinsdale as mayor?
Where was Cassie's alert intuition to her cousin's schemes?
And where was Brandon's girlfriend from the prior movie?
The attraction of the Good Witch has gone for so many reasons. The only saving grace was that the Tinsdales united in love and there were excellent resolutions for all the other problems presented, but for me the climate changed and Middleton was lost forever.
This could have been a beautiful fairy tale Christmas story, but it
fell short of credible.
The duke played a very important role, however, he was ornery for only a very short time and then there a quick benevolent transformation. The tension should have been played out longer, creating realism of character.
Jules smiled or cried the entire movie. It was one or the other. Her acting was artificial and unnatural. She was not convincing at all in her role. She needs to learn transformation from one emotion to another and that there are other emotions in between that are subtle. Her smile was fixed and wooden the entire movie. Her evening gown was not beautiful as I had hoped it would be and her hair covered half of her dress.
The rest of the actors and actresses were excellent. They made the movie come alive. Roger Moore, Ashton, the children, the butlers, the maids, and Ashton's fiancé made this movie!
I did not like the music while people were speaking. It is very distracting to have loud music in the background during a conversation. Most Hallmark movies have loud background music playing now that is louder than the voices. Their movies are now concerts.
I thought this movie could have been more exciting by expanding the plot line and with true character development. This could have been a great, magical Christmas fairy tale.
The movie was heartwarming and entertaining, as far as I could tell, if
I could hear what the characters were saying over the loud music. The
scenery was breathtaking. The connection between an American woman and
an Irish man was intriguing.
The reason I gave this movie a one was because the music in the background was so loud that I could not hear what the characters were saying and there should not be music while one is speaking. If one can't enjoy the movie, then one might as well not watch it. The music ruined everything for me.
It would be nice for Hallmark to take note of the older movies when you could hear every word and not have to strain your ears, and I have excellent hearing. The music is very distracting. You don't need music when one is speaking.
