Did You Know?


Brady tells Susan, "Enjoy the ride; The destination will unfold." She responds by asking whether he had made it up or stole it from an old "Star Trek". His advice is similar to a line from Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991) in which Spock advises, "You must have faith ... That the universe will unfold as it should." See more »

Haunted By An Angel
1 December 2015 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Hallmark ends its first batch of Christmas romantic comedies for 2015 with this highly watchable effort. Jennifer Finnigan writes a story about her family's heirloom wooden angel. In talking to her relatives about legends that have accumulated around it, she comes to understand and accept the nature of faith and, this being a Hallmark TV movie, falls in love with laid-back artist Jonathan Scarfe.

Although the story is nicely handled with a pleasant bit of whimsy -- is the angel actually doing something or is it all coincidence? -- there are a couple of technical aspects that might have been better handled. Conversations between Ms. Finnigan and Mr. Scarfe are shot in a lot of short clips, when a slower cutting speed might have helped; and there is a lot of obvious and poorly executed dialogue looping during the tree-buying scene.

However, the loveliness of the story and the fine performances by the leads render those two complaints minor. This is the best of the batch of Hallmark Christmas romcoms and worth seeing on its own account.
