My Hallmark Obsession

Hallmark Movie Review: A Kiss Before Christmas

Were you a Desperate Housewives fan? I watched it for awhile back in the day…but it’s been so long, I can’t really say I was super into it…..but that doesn’t mean I forgot my love for Mike & Susan!

So, we already know these two have what it takes in the chemistry department….it was just a question of what Hallmark hand they got dealt…

CHEMISTRY (between the leads) ❤️❤️❤️❤️ I love these two. So why am I having a hard time giving 5 hearts? So glad you asked. Imma tell you. A huge draw for me is the woo-ing….and the way this storyline was written (which I loved btw) there wasn’t a lot of “woo” But, oh, the last 20 minutes had me in tears! And it was all due to the love Ethan and Joyce poured out for each other! So freaking sweet and beautiful! 😍

STORYLINE (overall plot of the movie) ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Don’t question God’s plan! Now I know they didn’t make reference to the Good Lord…but that’s all I kept thinking while watching this. “What if…” I loved this plot! Getting to see how your life would be different if you turned left instead of right…and realizing in the end what’s truly important.

SUPPORTING CAST ❤️❤️no one aside from James Denton & Teri Hatcher stood out for me. Is that horrible? I mean, it almost felt like the other characters could have been completely switched out and I wouldn’t have noticed. 🤷‍♀️

FEELS ❤️❤️❤️❤️ I can tell you the exact moment this whole movie blew me into “ALL THE FEELS” cuz up until this point, the only ache in my heart I got was when Ethan saw his kids and realized in this alternate life they weren’t his 🙁 the moment: at the Christmas Eve party when Ethan doesn’t remember his old life and Joyce remembers for him. Oh my goodness…the scene made this whole movie worth the watch! Of course when he got “home” was amazing too! 😉

HALLMARK SURPRISE (what made this different from typical Hallmark movies) ❤️❤️❤️ I loved that our main couple resolved their conflict very quickly. The misunderstanding didn’t last very long at all….and LOVED the scene I described above…it was just the twist needed to make the storyline unique

NEW (ungraded) CATEGORY no hearts given, but I feel like some of the “traditions” or decor in these movies NEED a little spotlight. I mean…


  1. That COFFEE MAKER! Where do I get one of those???? ☕️

18/25 Solid flick. Gave me all the family feels …..different twist on the “be careful what you wish for” plot. I liked it.
