Here's a checklist of all the Hallmark original romance movies from 2018 along with my comments on those I've seen.
Special movies of note are marked Favorite, Good, Okay, and BAD.
✓ Love on the Slopes (Winterfest • Katrina Bowden and Thomas Beaudoin • January 6, 2018)
Thomas Beaudoin is so ovary-scorching hot that even guys fall in love with him. So what's Hallmark going to do with all that hotness? Put him in an annoyingly stupid movie, unfortunately. A magazine writer accepts an assignment to write about extreme sports, but knows nothing about extreme sports, so she gloms onto Thomas Beaudoin, extreme photographer, to help her out. She's annoying as hell, but love inexplicably ensues. Right up to the idiotic "YOU BETRAYED ME!" moment that was weak enough to be laughable. Also featured is something so frickin' idiotic that I devoted an entire blog post to it.
Frozen in Love (Winterfest • Rachael Leigh Cook and Niall Matter • January 13, 2018)
Haven't seen yet.
✓ Okay One Winter Weekend (Winterfest • Taylor Cole and Jack Turner • January 20, 2018)
White Woman and Black Woman Head to a ski resort where, thanks to a misunderstanding, they end up reluctantly sharing a chalet with a White Man and Black Man. If you think that Hallmark would even think about switching things up and giving us some mixed-race couples... you must be new to Hallmark! This is a fairly sedate story which features a good enough cast to make it worth a look... especially if you like watching people snowboard. Also? They mention "Wenatchee Peak" on the radio, which was a nice shout-out to Central Washington (even though the peak itself doesn't exist).
⊗ NO Winter's Dream (Winterfest • Kristy Swanson and Dean Cain • January 27, 2018)
Usually I don't give a crap about somebody's politics. I am easily able to separate an actor from their work, and do so all the time. Democrat? Republican? I'm neither, so I honestly don't care. But there's no way I'm supporting the career of somebody who is in bed with the toxic waste assholes at the Family Research Council like Dean Cain. Guess I'll have to be happy with watching all the Hallmark movies except the handful he appears in.
✓ Okay My Secret Valentine (Countdown to Valentine's Day • Lacey Chabert and Andrew W. Walker • February 3, 2018)
This has one has a concept so bizarre as to be laughable... it's a lo-fi version of You've Got Mail... but it actually does work, thanks to the two leads being charming as all get out. But, helpful hint to Lacy Chabert: If you want to know who the mystery tenant is who has been corresponding with you via a blackboard, JUST WAIT OUTSIDE THE HOUSE AND WATCH WHO GOES IN! It's not like you have to break into AOL and hack AOL Online.
✓ Very, Very Valentine (Countdown to Valentine's Day • Danica McKellar and Cameron Mathison • February 10, 2018)
A shy florist and hopeless romantic named Helen (who hangs out at weddings after delivering their flowers) is convinced to go to a masquerade ball by her best friend, Henry. There she meets the man of her dreams, but has no idea who he is. Determined to find this perfect man again, she asks Henry to help her find him. As they search for her mystery man, Helen realizes that the perfect man might have been right in front of her all along. This one is pretty basic with an absurd second story about a Botanical Garden closing, but McKellar and Mathison are pretty good, so I was able to fight the urge to fall asleep.
✓ Cooking with Love (Countdown to Valentine's Day • Ali Liebert and Brett Dalton • February 11, 2018)
A competent and kind television producer is forever overlooked and having ideas stolen from her until she gets her moment to shine... coming up with a solution when a popular kid's cooking show loses its host due to a back injury. Her big idea? Have popular celebrity chef and all-around jerk fill in as host! Of course his cold, dead heart softens when he's plagued with annoying children being all heartwarming and stuff so he can fall in love with him. Blergh. Of course I am not going to be a fan of a movie with a bunch of kids in it, but it wasn't as terrible as I thought it would be. Brett Dalton really has a handle on playing this type of character.
✓ Wedding March 3: Here Comes the Bride (Josie Bissett and Jack Wagner • February 17, 2018)
Blergh. Yet another sequel to a movie that nobody asked for. Mick and Olivia's inn has been running them ragged so they decide to take a short break and go away for the weekend. But then... UH OH... Olivia's douchey mother arrives to put a halt to that nonsense! And of course that's not nearly enough drama, so Mick's sister and his daughter have to show up to pile on more senseless insanity. Can somebody tell me what the appeal of these films are?
✓ Favorite Royal Hearts (Cindy Busby, Andrew Cooper, and James Brolin • February 24, 2018)
Okay... 99% of the reason that I have marked this movie as a "favorite" is solely because James Brolin plays the rancher who inherits the throne of Merania (yet another fictional Hallmark country). He's glorious (he also directed the film). 1% is probably because of the ovary-scorching stable-boy who's pining after the new king's daughter (played by Andrew Cooper). And, oh yeah, Cindy Busby is gorgeous... the story is good... the locations are stunning... the acting is all on-point... and it was just a darn entertaining film, even if it has fewer surprises than it probably should have. A worthwhile use of your time if you're into this kind of thing.
✓ Love, Once and Always (Amanda Schull and Peter Porte • March 10, 2018)
When a historian living in London receives notice that her aunt has died and left her a massive estate back in the USA, little does she know that half of the estate was left to the son of the estate caretaker... who just happens to also be a childhood boyfriend. She wants to preserve the estate, he wants to knock it down and build a golf course... how ever will they compromise? The answer won't surprise you. Nor will them falling in love. There's not a lot here, but at least they tried to come up with something slightly new. A pit they couldn't find a way to make it more exciting.
✓ The Sweetest Heart (Spring Fever • Julie Gonzalo and Chris McNally • March 17, 2018)
Despite having one of my favorite Hallmark leads, Chris McNally, this was a tough one for me to get through. The red herring romance with an investment banker was a total bust, and the old boyfriend romance wasn't much better. Getting past the "SAVE MY CUPCAKE SHOP" trope that's been run into the ground numerous times already would take a lot more than what's happening here. Which means the movie ultimately failed for me, but not in a way that I hated it.
✓ Royal Matchmaker (Spring Fever • Bethany Joy Lenz, Will Kemp, and Brittany Bristow • March 24, 2018)
The king of some fictional European country named Voldavia hires a matchmaker to be flown in from New York City to find a future queen for his son. CAN YOU GUESS WHAT HAPPENS?!? Not a terrible movie, but really doesn't have anything new to say in the whole "royal romance" genre. This is yet another "royal" Hallmark movie filmed at beautiful Peleș Castle in Romania (a place I've actually been to), which is always something special. The romance going on is kinda dull, and the leads were a weird match, but it wasn't exactly unwatchable.
Home by Spring (Spring Fever • Poppy Drayton and Steven R. McQueen • March 31, 2018)
Haven't seen yet.
✓ Once Upon a Prince (Spring Fever • Megan Park and Jonathan Keltz • April 7, 2018)
When a woman gets a roadside assist from a stranger, she is shocked... shocked I say!... to find out he's not just handsome... he's a handsome prince! Conveniently, she's just broken up with her long-term boyfriend, just as the prince is due to be crowned a king! Of course his mom wants nothing to do with a commoner love interest for her son, so she devises ways to split them up (naturally!). Will true love win out in the end? Oh boy, I sure hope so! Otherwise that pesky paparazzi was for nothing! Not much original here, but not terrible either.
✓ The Beach House (Hallmark Hall of Fame • Minka Kelly and Chad Michael Murray • April 28, 2018)
Well, the scenery was pretty, it was beautifully shot, and it's got awesome baby turtles at the end... but that's about it. When a woman's busy life in Chicago is going wrong, she takes a trip home to South Carolina to hang with her mom for a week and regroup. But things get complicated thanks to a young pregnant girl living at her mom's house, a jerk brother who is controlling their mother's finances, a house that's badly in need of repair, and her mother hiding some kind of health problem. This wasn't a "bad" movie, per se, but it was relatively uneventful. It's all family drama drama drama without any substance or much happening, and I was incredibly bored by it all.
✓ Okay Royally Ever After (Fiona Gubelmann and Torrance Coombs • May 19, 2018)
I'm just going to get this over with: Torrance Coombs, the prince in this movie, has either the most gorgeous eyes I've ever seen... or the creepiest eyes I've ever seen. But anyway... this movie could have easily been "good" but gets knocked down to "okay" because once the girl finds out the guy is really a prince and flies back to his home country to meet the royal family... SHE ACTS stupid, STUPID, STUPID!!! She falls out of a damn car for crying out loud. And what's so inexplicable is that the movie just doesn't need it. Wasn't even remotely funny. Then of course her equally idiotic family flies in from New Jersey as a part of a plot to have the prince lose the throne. Once they get rid of that crap and just have her be sweet and intelligent and adaptive to the situation, everything gets so much better and we get the movie we should have gotten all along.
✓ Marrying Mr. Darcy (June Weddings • Cindy Busby and Ryan Paevey • June 2, 2018)
This just in from the Completely Unnecessary Sequel Department: this sequel was completely unnecessary! I thought the first one was okay... if, for no other reason, that it at least tried to be a little unique by reimagining Pride & Prejudice with dog shows. Unfortunately the romance was not with the dogs, but with their human handlers. This time around Mr. Darcy has asked Elizabeth to marry him and unnecessaryness ensues. To be honest, there just wasn't enough here to hold my attention. Something about awful Aunt Violet coming onboard to make their small, intimate wedding explode into an idiotic spectacle or something like that. Two different worlds or something like that. We shouldn't get married (or should we?) or something like that. Then a big EVERYBODY COME TOGETHER FOR AN UNNECESSARY WEDDING MONTAGE or something like that. You know, something like that.
✓ The Perfect Bride: Wedding Bells (June Weddings • Pascale Hutton and Kavan Smith • June 9, 2018)
I honestly have not a single clue why Hallmark decided that last year's The Perfect Bride deserved a sequel. The first one was so bad... and Pascale Hutton's character was awful (I never understood why she'd play it the first time, let alone want to play it again). This time she is planning her own wedding to the photographer guy, which is kind of dull despite everything going wrong... so they tried to spice it up with some absurd plot twists that weren't even interesting. Oh noes! The guy who dumped her at the altar of her first wedding is back and wanting to invest in her company when her bank loan falls through! =yawn= Will they ever make it to the altar? Lord, I hope so... I couldn't possibly sit through another one of these.
✓ Love at First Dance (June Weddings • Becca Tobin and Niall Matter • June 16, 2018)
Manhattan's most eligible bachelor is getting married! But he can't dance for his wedding's first dance as man and wife so he signs up with dance lessons with Hope, a woman he had a run-in with earlier. She thinks he's entitled and spoiled... but he's also wealthy, handsome, and charming, so of course she falls in love with him. And he starts falling for her. But what about his fiancé? Who cares about her? This is Hallmark and we don't do that. I liked the two leads but was kinda bored with everything else.
✓ Wedding March 4: Something Old, Something New (June Weddings • Andrew W. Walker and Merritt Patterson • June 23, 2018)
TWO SEQUELS IN THE SAME YEAR?!? Please, for the love of God, just stop with these movies already. The original didn't deserve a sequel... let alone the 4(?) 6(?) 20(?!?) that followed. There are literally a dozen Hallmark movies I'd rather see a sequel to than this seemingly endless series, but here we go again. At least the tired pairing of Jack Wagner and Josie Bissett is supplemented by the awesome Andrew Walker and Merritt Patterson, the both of which should have had the sense to do a different movie together. But, then again, at least their presence made this one a pleasant outing of sorts. Otherwise it would just be more drama at the inn which never seems to get enough drama.
✓ Yes, I Do (June Weddings • Jen Lilley, Marcus Rosner, and Jessica Lowndes • June 30, 2018)
This groan-inducing bucket of awful is not horrendous, but it's pretty close. Adorable flighty nut-case Jen Lilley is a chocolatier so lovable goofy that she keeps blowing off her wedding to a guy who inexplicably keeps giving her new chances. But third time might be a charm when she plans on marrying him yet again. Will she finally go through with it? Or will the guy's ex-girlfriend who happens to own a chocolate magazine steal him away with her lies? Or will this movie slide into idiocy so deep that you want to set your television on fire? Only Hallmark knows for sure! Well, and you, if you decide to watch long enough to find out.
✓ Love on Safari (Summer Nights • Lacey Chabert and Jon Cor • July 28, 2018)
Like I would pass up a new Lacey Chabert movie! This one is a bit disturbing in that it's a not-so-thinly-veiled white savior story that didn't have much to say. Just think... for one damn minute... if Hallmark had any interest at all in making good use of actually going to Africa. But nope! More white people doing white shit in yet another "SAVE THE RANCH!" story which uses the native Black population as background scenery. Lame. But, it's also Hallmark, which means that's expected.
✓ A Summer to Remember (Summer Nights • Catherine Bell and Cameron Mathison • August 4, 2018)
Catherine Bell, whom I obsess over, took a break from filming her Good Witch series to film this movie, which was almost a good use of her time. Filmed on location in Fiji, this is a beautiful production that makes very good use of one of my favorite places on earth. The story is straightforward and has no surprises but, given the Fiji local, it really didn't need them. Still, there are some cute moments thanks to Catherine Bell being Catherine Bell that are worth your valuable time.
✓ Love at Sea (Summer Nights • Alexa PenaVega and Carlos • August 11, 2018)
Love at Sea AKA A 2-Hour Royal Caribbean "Harmony of the Seas" Commercial is another Hallmark movie starring the PenaVegas (the first was last year's Enchanted Christmas). They're both kinda over-the-top in their acting, so it's a little bit weird (they even put their baby in the movie). She's an event planner (groan) in charge of a culinary cruise who sticks to a schedule... he's a brand new cruise director who marches to the beat of his own drum and likes to shake things up. Some of his first words to her are literally "You need to be less rigid," so it's fairly obvious where we're sailing. Inevitable romance courtesy of the "OPPOSITES ATTRACT!" trope ensues because Alexis finds out that you can't schedule love! The story is a bit of a snooze and the twists are completely obvious... this is the equivalent of thumbing through a Royal Caribbean brochure with dopey romance sprinkled on top... and I felt it was pretty lame overall.
✓ Pearl in Paradise (Summer Nights • Jill Wagner and Kristoffer Polaha • August 18, 2018)
Nothing quite like spending serious money on location shoots, then muck it all up with a boring-ass story like this Romancing the Stone wannabe. And don't get me started on the general idiocy of the details. When the camera lens ends up in the mud, there's all this concern about scratching the lens by cleaning it wrong. Except the lens had a clear lens filter over it, FOR PROTECTION AGAINST JUST THIS KIND OF THING, so all the drama that ensued was just stupid.
✓ Season for Love (Summer Nights • Autumn Reeser and Marc Blucas • ugust 25, 2018)
Well, it's got Autumn Reeser in it, and that's something. High school sweethearts return to their home town to compete in a BBQ cook-off. He's a New York City celebrity chef. She's just been fired from her assistant chef job in San Francisco. Sparks fly in and out of the kitchen. It's disappointing how Autumn Reeser keeps getting stuck in these uninspired, tired stories. My guess is that Hallmark knows they've got a snoozer, so they put her in it specifically to make it better. Well, she does, but holy cow... can't she get a movie that's as good as she is for once? I think she's earned it.
Wedding of Dreams (Debbie Gibson, Robert Gant, and Pascale Hutton • September 8, 2018)
Haven't seen yet.
✓ Love in Design (Danica McKellar and Andrew W. Walker • September 15, 2018)
When the host of an interior design show heads back home to restore an old manor, she runs afoul of the local historical home preservation committee. WHO JUST HAPPENS TO BE AN OLD FLAME, OF COURSE! Not surprisingly, as the renovation goes on, their conflict leads to their flame being rekindled. The leads make this one worth watching, though the story itself is just so stale.
✓ Truly, Madly, Sweetly (Fall Harvest • Nikki DeLoach and Dylan Neal • September 22, 2018)
Yet another cupcake romance. Natalie is a cupcake baker selling her sweets out of a food truck. Eric is a single dad and financial advisor. When these two random kids inherit a building... WHICH HAPPENS TO BE THE SITE OF A FAMOUS SAN FRANCISCO BAKERY... things get off to a rocky start because HE wants to sell it and SHE wants to move her cupcake business in. WHATEVER WILL HAPPEN NOW? Oh... he loses his job and they are forced to work together because the building is a historic landmark and nobody wants to buy it because of building code restrictions (or some such nonsense). Yada yada yada... happily ever after. I like Nikki DeLoach well enough, but this one was kinda uneventful and forgettable.
✓ Okay All of My Heart: The Wedding (Fall Harvest • Lacey Chabert and Brennan Elliott • September 29, 2018)
Terminally sweet baker and inn proprietor Lacey Chabert is back and planning her pending wedding to that guy who was a wealthy Wall Street deal-maker until he inherited half the inn with her and they had to work together to build a business. Unfortunately, though the inn is doing good business, they are blindsided by a distant relative who shows up and wants to be bought out of her share of the inn RIGHT NOW! Oh noes! Now they won't have enough money for the wedding AND they'll have to sell the inn! Guess Wall Street guy better go back to Wall Street to earn some much-needed cash! Too bad this temporary situation puts an inexplicable and senseless strain on their relationship. Will they ever get married? WE JUST DON'T KNOW! Or do we? This one is okay, I guess. I really like Lacey Chabert and Wall Street guy has a sensibility about him that's lacking in other Hallmark leading men. Plus? BABY GOATS! Awww, who doesn't love baby goats?
✓ Falling for You (Fall Harvest • Taylor Cole and Tyler Hynes • October 6, 2018)
In order to save the failing radio station she works at, a woman comes up with a “bachelor bake-off” to raise money. It’s a nutty concept... guys baking stuff to get women to bid on them for money... made even crazier when you try and wrap your head around how the radio station could possibly raise enough money from such an absurd concept to survive. Fortunately she convinces a businessman who’s in town to enter as a last-minute replacement despite their antagonistic first meeting. Hallmark ensues. This is not a great story, but I did like the leads they got to play in it... despite the fact that that relationship between the guy and an intern at the station is more interesting than any romance going on.
✓ Under the Autumn Moon (Fall Harvest • Lindy Booth and Wes Brown • October 13, 2018)
Wes Brown is his usual charming self, but Lindy Booth, while beautiful, seems weirdly miscast in all these Hallmark films. She was "Night Bitch" in Kick-Ass 2, for heavens sake! Here she's a corporate climber who wants to turn a struggling ranch into a private corporate retreat (YES, IT'S YET ANOTHER "SAVE THE RANCH!" STORY, FOLKS! BECAUSE THAT NEVER GETS OLD!). And, of course, as she spends more and more time at the ranch (and in the company of the handsome guy who owns it) she falls in love with the ranching life and wants to help. Too bad her boss shows up with other plans! WHICH WILL SHE CHOOSE... THE RANCH AND HER NEW LOVE... OR HER BOSS AND CAREER?? Would it shock you if I said that she picks her career? It would? Well it should. This is Hallmark and we just don't DO that here. Charming in spots, but has a largely yawn-inducing story. Fortunately there's some pretty scenery to be had.
✓ Love, of Course (Fall Harvest • Kelly Rutherford and Cameron Mathison • October 20, 2018)
So there I was, settling into this latest Hallmark offering, when all of a sudden... IS THAT OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST GABBY DOUGLAS?!? And, sure enough, it totally was! I always like Cameron Mathison in these things, and he's good as usual... but this movie was just so slow and so plodding that even his easy charm couldn't save it for me. Though the MASSIVELY HUGE CORN MAZE did score some points. Because, seriously, how frickin' ridiculous was that? PEOPLE COULD DIE IN THERE! And wouldn't that make for an awesome movie?
✓ Favorite Christmas at Pemberley Manor (Countdown to Christmas • Jessica Lowndes and Michael Rady • October 27, 2018)
An event planner assistant (Elizabeth) looking to impress her boss and get ahead in her career heads to a small town so she can plan their annual Holiday Festival. But when disaster strikes and the town square is flooded, she has to turn to a billionaire (Mr. Darcy) so she can have the festival at Pemberley Manor... an estate owned by his company which, oh noes, is going to sell it so it can be torn down and made into condos. While there's an abundance of Christmas in this one, it's not beating you over the head, and makes a nice backdrop for the story. The leads are good and even the background stories are fun to watch. Easily one of my favorite of the Christmas films, this is a pretty good benchmark for where Hallmark should be landing with these things.

A woman protesting the destruction of a local park by a big developer has an accidental run-in with a guy whom she helps find a job at a food truck she works at. Little does she know, the guy is actually the millionaire son of the developer. Can their budding relationship survive such a deception? Steve Lund is absolutely flawless in these kind of movies, and really makes the whole thing worthwhile. The story, which nothing exceptional, is pretty good as well.
