You sometimes see the same actors and actresses in Lifetime movies. In those movies, they can show off their “bad” sides, or play the victims.
Quite a number of the Hallmark regulars co-produce their movies.

My husband LOVES LOVES LOVES Hallmark Christmas movies. It's one of many things I find endearing about him.

The Hallmark movie I watched today, Winter in Love, starred unknown actors. It was bad. This is one of the examples I mentioned earlier about Hallmark going downhill. The acting was so over-the-top to the point that the bit players were by far much better actors than the main characters. And the writing? Clearly, it was one of those crank-em-out scripts written in 14 - 30 days based on the basic formula. No wonder it starred unknowns. The main actress wasn't even likable!

In the past, when Hallmark came out with a movie, it was an absolute treat! You knew you were going to be get that warm fuzzy and strength of determination that only Hallmark could deliver. You were going to finish watching the movie, wanting more, but leaving with hope.

As I said in my first post... Hallmark moviess are ALL about casting these days. When you get your regular, feel-good Hallmark actors, you're in for a treat. When you don't... it's a crap shoot.

You may remember the “Hallmark Hall of Fame” movies that used to be broadcast about a few times a year on ABC, CBS, or NBC. They used to get A-list talent.

I may be an old fogey, but I think television was better when there were fewer networks. When most broadcast the same thing around the clock, there’s less memorable programming.

I couldn't agree more.

Just to balance out the negative post I made about Hallmark movies (with unknown actors) being hit or miss (mostly miss), I did just watch one that I enjoyed. It's called Winter Love Story. It helped that it was about writers, too!
