2016 Christmas Television Movie Binge Watch #13
Candace Cameron Bure is back with her annual holiday movie for the Hallmark channel. This time she's back as nurse Hanna, a lovely caring person who questions what her life is all about now that her husband has died in the war. On Christmas, a comet approaches and miraculously sends Hanna from 1945 to 2016, in a shed. So imagine how Hanna must feel, being out of time, seeing new strange things, trying…
A widow and widower with lots of children between them fall in love and marry. Of course melding the two families into one is chaotic, heart warming and pretty damn funny.
Extremely charming, great family fair. Henry Fonda and Lucille Ball were spot on and just plain adorable here. They just don't make family movies like this anymore. You can enjoy this film at any age, as it should be. I'm kinda ashamed I hadn't seen this before. Well, in it's entirety that is. I seem to recall bits and pieces here and there.
Jesus Christ. If you like over the top misery, this films for you. I absolutely hated that every male character was portrayed as a villain and every female character was a victim. There's a certain storyline that for me came across as homophobic. Such great actress (not Janet Jackson) giving some really good performances, they gave their all to try and sell the melodramatic tales of woe. The last shot of this film is exactly like the last shot of Waiting to Exhale which is a far superior film. Just saying.
