Hallmark Movies 2014

Last Updated on Monday, September 2nd, 2019

Dave!Here's a checklist of all the Hallmark original romance movies from 2014 along with my comments on those I've seen.

Special movies of note are marked Favorite, Good, Okay, and BAD.


   

Hallmark Channel Originals 2014

June in January (Brooke D'Orsay and Wes Brown • January 18, 2014)
Not seen yet.

Chance at Romance (Erin Krakow and Ryan McPartlin • February 8, 2014)
Not seen yet.

A Ring by Spring (Rachel Boston and Kirby Morrow • March 8, 2014)
Not seen yet.

Lucky in Love (Jessica Szohr and Benjamin Hollingsworth • April 5, 2014)
This movie has... Diedre Hall in a guest role! Which is pretty great on its own, but the story is fairly decent as well (the children's book title in this one is the worst one I've seen yet, however: Peggy the Tidy Pig? WTF?!?). When all her wishes come true on April Fool's Day, Mira thinks she has the life she's always dreamed of. Alas, dreaming about a life and living that life are two different things, and she may have been better off before her luck changed. Can she end up lucky in life and love? Well, it's Hallmark. Jessica Szohr (from The Orville) is a compelling lead, which is why I'm surprised she hasn't been in more of these things. In other news, the guy that gets the girl is a straight graphic designer. So nice to finally get representation!

A Lesson in Romance (Kristy Swanson and Scott Grimes • April 19, 2014)
Not seen yet.

Mom's Day Away (Bonnie Somerville and James Tupper • May 10, 2014)

Angels Sing (Harry Connick Jr. and Connie Britton • July 12, 2014)
Not seen yet.

For Better or For Worse (Lisa Whelchel and Antonio Cupo • July 19, 2014)
Oh gawd. A movie starring Tootie and Blaire from The Facts of Life that’s almost as bad as you’d expect. Except... the story itself is actually not terrible once you get past the coincidence upon which the entire movie hangs (A man opens a divorce lawyer office next to a woman’s bridal boutique which is a source of instant tension, but they have to band together when their kids get engaged to be married). A mostly idiotic movie, but still better than it has a right to be.

Stranded in Paradise (Vanessa Marcil and James Denton • August 9, 2014)
The only reason I suffered through the TV show Las Vegas was because the amazing Vanessa Marcil was in it. She is infinitely watchable, and her toughness is more than a little appealing. Obviously getting her for a Hallmark movie is the coup of coups, and I have no idea why she’s not in more of these things, because she delivered exactly what I expected as an HR executive who flies to a conference in beautiful Puerto Rico so she can get a new job before her disapproving mother finds out she was fired. A hurricane ensues... as does a relationship with a random guy she keeps running into. I don’t know much about James Denton outside of him being the evil Mr. Lyle on The Pretender, but he was very good in this one as well. All in all, a pretty decent flick with the best possible “message” to take away. If only it wasn’t all tainted by Marcil’s toxic mother character, who is garbage right up to the end, regardless of how they try to spin it.

Perfect on Paper (Drew Fuller and Lindsay Hartley • September 20, 2014)

Not seen yet.

Not seen yet.

PixL Originals 2014

Sweet Surrender (Arielle Kebbel, Haylie Duff, and Adam Mayfield • August 16, 2014)
Fresh out of the Army, Tom has to return to his childhood home to run his grandma's bed and breakfast while she's in the hospital. Things get complicated when he starts falling for a local police officer. Things get REALLY complicated when he finds out the B&B owes $92,000 in back-taxes. But no worries... his grandma dies and his truly awful ex-girlfriend (who is now the mayor) is conspiring to screw him out of the property. And a great time was had by everybody! The cast is good, the story isn't terrible, and they made a decent imitation-Hallmark movie here... but it was a bit of a slog to get through.

Unknown Others 2014

Saving Madison (Alona Tal and Ethan Peck • August 16, 2014)
I don't get it. I recorded this on Hallmark Channel... there's the Hallmark Channel logo on it... but I don't think it's a Hallmark Channel Original movie? So I don't know what's going on. Anyway... Madison Park is a famous singer who is rescued from a fire by a down-to-earth fireman named John Kelly. Of course she falls for him while the world is watching (and her jerk manager tries to tear them apart). What's significant about this one is not the story (it's tired and kinda crap), but the actors they got for it. Ethan Peck, Sherilyn Fenn, Ted McGinley, C Thomas Howell, and Kadeem Hardison... it's a dumping ground for the 80's. A fun, predictable diversion, but not a necessary one.
