Third podcast review for the #merrythanksgivingweekend on Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries. (I am glad we are almost done.)
This podcast we are reviewing Christmas at Castle Hart starring Lacey Chabert and Stuart Townsend, as well as Time for Them to Come home for Christmas starring Jessy Schram and Brendan Elliot.
We liked Christmas at Castle Hart. It was very reminiscent of Hallmark's 2016 movie "My Summer Prince" starring Jax Turner and Taylor Cole. Loved the sister relationship between Margot and Brooke. Definitely loved the comedy and the river dancing. A few things we want to point out though is that we feel Hallmark is perpetuating a stereotype about the Irish people when Margot and Brooke go to the pub to find their family members, like they expect them to be in the bar all day or something. Why not go to the library. Also this was written by Paul Campbell. We are thinking of renaming this weekend "The Weekend of Paul Campbell" lol. Since he had a hand in 3 of the 8 movies that aired.
Time for Them to Come Home for Christmas was nice. It wasn't memorable. The drinking game of how many times can you hear that song was a missed opportunity. Allison Sweeney made a cameo appearance. And we are left wondering "Can two people fall in love in two days?" Also IT DOESN'T SNOW IN THE CAROLINAS!!!! lol
