My Hallmark Obsession

Hallmark Movie Review: A Maple Valley Christmas

A Maple Andrew Christmas…..


So here’s how I break it down:
5 categories, 5 hearts possible in each

CHEMISTRY (between the leads) ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Andrew Walker. ‘Tis the season for us all to enjoy your presence on the screen. And enjoy we did. Apparently so did your co-star….that early movie, bold move by Ericka on Aaron really shocked my whole family into this one. Woah……..WOOOOAHHHHHH NELLY!!!! I mean, even if 95% of the viewers are thinking that’s what they want to happen….it was a tad jarring. As always, Mr. Walker brings the smolder to almost every scene. I enjoyed witnessing that……however, apart from the kiss I just wasn’t prepared for….the rest of this pairing was too one-sided for me :(. I’m so sad I have to type that.

STORYLINE (overall plot of the movie) ❤️❤️❤️ Cripes! Give AW a fresh script! I know the man can carry any and all things Hallmarky on his back….but a version of this story has been told so many times….in fact he’s even done one or two….I did love the scenery..the horses, the woods….that barn dinner….all the decor though.

SUPPORTING CAST ❤️❤️❤️ Meh. There was a lot of tension happening all around….and honestly EVERYONE in both these families needs some serious therapy. What didn’t make sense to me is that by the end nothing really seemed resolved.,

FEELS ❤️❤️❤️ Once my heart and other parts calmed down after that kiss on the porch…..the romance portion was really lacking. The dance was alright…the horse ride was ok…the final scene was beautiful….but I have to be honest, if it wasn’t Andrew Walker in this flick, I would probably forget about the whole movie.

HALLMARK SURPRISE (what made this different from typical Hallmark movies) ❤️❤️ ❤️ I’ve now mentioned it multiple times. Huge HUUUUUGE move my Ericka right away ….wowzers. that took all my surprise right outta me.

16/25 Andrew!!! Please don’t read this. I WILL watch this again….just up until the porch kiss though 😉

P.S. if you do ever read this….I would never make you earn my hat
