Yes, I Do – Review
Yes, I Do – Hallmark – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Charlotte starts to itch as her fiance James talks about their upcoming wedding. After she left him at the altar twice, he knows her scratching is a bad sign. Since he worked hard planning the entire wedding himself, he can’t stand it when Charlotte ask to push it back. So he cancels their engagement. While she still breaks out at the thought of weddings, she is miserable without James. So she asks her friend Hanna to help her plan a wedding for her and James in 30 days. James tells her he MAY show up if she goes through with it. Meanwhile, Charlotte enters into a chocolate competition with a New York storefront as a grand prize run by Nicole who publishes Chocolate Monthly. Charlotte is ecstatic until James sees Nicole. Nicole is James’s ex before Charlotte. Now with a sweet smile, Nicole is determined to get James back. While Charlotte is planning their wedding, maybe.
This movie is a true break from the Hallmark mold. It is a fresh storyline with all the laughs, rivalry, and love you want. Also, this movie is the true definition of “shade”. These women will throw underhanded, backhanded, double-crossing jabs at each other. No matter the cost or who it hurts. While watching this story, you will only have sympathy for one person: James. He is being pulled in 2 directions by two women who took him for granted. This story proves you always want what you can’t have. Watch this movie with a glass of wine, popcorn, and the record button on. You will want to watch again.
I give it 5 out of 5 stars
I’m a reasonable person – Charlotte
I’ll give you a coupon – James
Everything fell into place after you and I broke up – Nicole

A Night to Regret – Review
A Night to Regret – Lifetime – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Chelsea Bilson is a budding director and works hard to get money for her movie. But all her hard work is met with being dumped by her boyfriend, so she decides to have a girls night out. She and her friend Sara hang at the bar when they see Chelsea’s old friend Milla. Milla was kicked out of school and ran off. So Chelsea is happily surprised to see her and see she is doing well. The girls drink, laugh, and party. When Sara leaves, Chelsea and Milla go back to Milla’s place. Chelsea finds out how Milla is making money these days. She is a webcam girl. As Milla, Chelsea, and several other friends sit around men watch and pay for them to do things. On man is Jake Peters. Jake was recently released from jail and has killed before. And he has his target set on Chelsea. He pays $200 to see her dance. Chelsea can’t believe she made $200 for nothing and considers creating her own channel. That one decision will lead to several dead bodies, some kidnappings, and one night to regret.
Ten years ago, this movie would have seen far-fetched but with the boom of social media turning into social stalking this movie is all too real. Now if you are looking for crazy, this movie kicks it up a notch with a dead body in the first 20 minutes. Also, no one is “too naive” however they do make mistakes. As soon as they see the error of their ways, they fix it quickly. In addition, the cops aren’t useless. They follow the leads and carry a suspension for everyone. It’s nice to see this change in a Lifetime film. This movie is a good way to kill 2 hours.
I give it 3.5 out of 5 stars
Just life – Milla
I love you. I want to marry you – Jake
She always “Thelma and Louise”s me – Chelsey

Olivia and Mick try to get some time away and work on their relationship when they are derailed by an antsy bride named Amy. Amy believed she knew what she wanted to make her big day perfect. But as she spends time with her soon to be sister-in-law Kelsey, she starts to doubt herself. Mick tries to handle all the bride’s changes but soon loses control. And to make matters harder, Olivia becomes preoccupied with her newly engaged daughter’s wedding. Even though its a year away, Olivia makes plans for her daughter’s wedding. And her daughter’s head starts to spin. She knows she has to rein her mother in before Olivia goes too far, too soon. With Olivia already planning her daughter’s wedding, Mick tries to handle the load for Amy’s wedding. But as the bride changes the dress, location, and flowers, Mick starts to crack under the pressure. Mick has to pull it together so Amy can have the wedding of Kelsey’s dreams and Olivia can plan the wedding of her dreams for her daughter.
This Hallmark movie is all about communication between loved ones. Whether it’s mother/daughter, lovers, or in-laws, communication is key. Everyone is trying to spare each other’s feelings but its only making matters worst. Once Amy has a real conversation with her husband-to-be and his family, everything is put into place. It takes different events for each relationship to come to that point but they all do and it works out. While this isn’t the best movie in the Wedding March series, it’s still a good stepping stone in the collection.

Home Invasion – Review
Home Invasion – LMN – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Every 12 minutes a home is invaded. And as home invasions go up, criminals are performing them during a different time of the day to throw off suspension. While Chloe spends another night wondering where her husband is, she is visited by her friend Alice. Chloe explains she is trying her best to make a good life for her step-son Jacob with no help from his recently absent father. As the ladies talk and sip, there is a knock at the door. Alice checks the door and is shot. Chloe quickly locks the door and calls 911. She grabs Jacob and hides. She starts to talk to her security company to dispatch help. With her high tech house, her security professional Mike is the eye in the sky. Chloe believes help is on the way soon. However, with a record rainstorm, closed bridge, power outages, and disconnected phone lines, Chloe and Jacob may not make it through the night.
Be prepared to be on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. This movie starts with the start of the home invasion. But cuts to 6 hours earlier to help you understand the family dynamic between Jacob, Chloe, and her husband. While this does take a little time to explain, it’s 100% worth it. You can feel your panic rise as Chloe tries to remain still and quiet. When she is disconnected from Mike, you start to get nervous. And the end will leave you wanting a part 2. Lifetime pay attention: THIS IS HOW SUSPENSE IS DONE!

Wedding March 3: Here Comes the Bride – Review
Wedding March 3: Here Comes the Bride – Hallmark – 2 hours and 0 minutes
While Mick and Olivia’s relationship is still in limbo, Mick is flabbergasted when his sister Bonnie comes to the Inn with big news. She is getting married to a guy she has known for 8 months. If that isn’t shocking enough for Mick, she is marrying his former bandmate Sean. Sean left the band high and dry years ago, leaving a bad taste in Mick’s mouth. Olivia tells Mick to give them a chance but Mick is steadfast in his feeling that this is a huge mistake. And to make matters harder for Mick, Julie wants to leave school and go to culinary school. While Julie is solely focused on changing her father’s mind, he doesn’t see Wyatt falling apart. It will take some flowers and some heart-to-heart talks to bring this family together.
This movie focuses more on Mick’s relationship with his family. He treats is sister more like a daughter because he took care of her after their father died. Meanwhile, his daughter is growing up faster than he wants. So he has to handle a lot of complicated relationships at the same time. While this movie does stand on its own, seeing the other movies will help you understand the complicated past of Olivia and Mick. This movie is good, however, seeing Mick’s expression to Julie’s dress up will leave you laughing until it hurts.
I give it 3 out of 5 stars
Worry about what? – Bonnie
What do you mean just to see me – Julie
Pretty much what she tells me too – Mick

Wow. This is a fantastic movie. If you miss 5 minutes, you will miss everything. DVR this movie so you can rewind and rewatch. You will not believe what you saw. It has OMG and WTF moments. It even throws suspense on Sam. You will start to wonder if she is losing her mind and imaging things because of her grief. Keep track of each person and their motives because this movie gives every person a reason to kill or be killed. It even gives a reason for Kyle to disappear on his own. This is the way a mystery should be done. The lead actress is not just a victim, she is a fighter. Even in her grief, she focuses and starts to rebuild. Sit back and watch this with your full attention, a glass of wine, and maybe with the lights on. Great job Lifetime.
