Watch with Hallmark Movies Now (PrimeVideo)
This has to be the worst movie from a book ever made. Even if I had not read the books, I would not have liked this movie. It is so bad I will not even give it one star. The characters were nothing like the people they are portraying. Father Tim, who is a portly, balding man in his 60’s, is a young, tall, thin and handsome man. Cynthia, his blond wife, is played by Andie MacDowell. Neither of them are suitable for their characters.
Dooley wasn’t even hardly mentioned while Puny, Miss Sadie Baxter, Uncle Billy and Miss Rose were not even in the movie. They left out the heart of Mitford.
The writers of this movie took a wonderful book, used two characters names, Father Tim and Cynthia, and eliminated the other characters. They ruined what could have been a great movie.
If you follow this blog you know that I love the Mitford Series by Jan Karon. I buy Mitford books the day they come out. I knew better to watch that movie. The movies are never as good as the books. This is the worst book to movie I have ever seen. Andie MacDowell took a wonderful book and turned it into a horrible movie. The movie would not have been good if it wasn’t about Mitford.
If you have not read the Mitford Series, give it a try. They are wonderful books. If you read the first one, you will read the rest. That means all you men also.
Downton Abbey, the award-winning series from Julian Fellowes, spans 12 years of gripping drama centered on a great English estate on the cusp of a vanishing way of life. America fell in love with Downton Abbey’s Granthams and their family of servants, and has followed them through sweeping change, scandals, love, ambition, heartbreak, and hope ever since. Downton Abbey delivers wit, warmth, passion and a phenomenon that is, at its heart, utterly human.
This is the complete collection of all 6 seasons and “Masterpiece: The Manners of Downton Abbey” – a behind-the-scenes look at the series. Rejoin the Crawley family for all six of the award-winning Downton Abbey, featuring intimately interlaced stories centered on the English country estate. The beloved cast includes Maggie Smith, Hugh Bonneville, Michelle Dockery, Elizabeth McGovern, Jim Carter, Joanne Froggatt, and many others.
This series started at I was working until 10 PM every night so I didn’t know anything about it. Years later and another job, it was aired about an hour after I got home. I loved it. It was the highlight of my day. I still haven’t been able to watch the entire series but one day I will be able to buy this series. In the meantime, I really think you will like it too.
This is my mom’s favorite Christmas movie. We watch it every year. It is very good movie starring Ed Asner and Maureen Stapleton. You will recognize most of the cast also.
Adam Thornton is a man who put his business before his family and now is facing his death. He and his family must put aside past hurt and anger to spend one Last Christmas together. It shows what is important in life and how forgiveness needs to be given before it is too late.
This is a very good family Christmas movie.
