Christmas in Evergreen is my favorite Christmas DVD series and this fourth in the series does not disappoint. The DVD plays perfectly and the movie is just as wonderful as the first three. The background scenery is breathtaking and it makes you want to be part of the movie. I could watch it every day of the year. I highly recommend this one.
C'est une très bonne série de Noël. Des films à regarder en famille durant le temps des Fêtes ou même au mois de juillet lors des canicuies. C'est rafraîchissant et les acteurs sont excellents. Je recommande cette série à tous. Merci Hallmark pour tous ces beaux films.
I now have all four of the "Christmas in Evergreen" Hallmark Christmas movie DVDs. I think that this installment may be the weakest of the four films set in the magical town of Evergreen, Vermont. I give the movie a solid 5 Stars for its accent on diversity. Virtually the entire plot revolves around the African Americans who have been gradually been gaining greater importance with each new installment. The movie also reveals how disappointments, even at Christmas time, can be used to make us be stronger and kinder people. The weakness is the plot line. Rather than following one story line, the movie jumps from at least two major couples to a scrapbook-type summary of past love stories in the series. The fourth movie seems more like a quilt of stories rather than a nice warm, fleecy blanket of one love story. Despite this one criticism, I highly recommend the purchase of the newest chapter in a wonderful series. In anticipation of viewing the latest Evergreen story, I watched the first three movies in this series and I was delighted to meet old friends and love a return journey to the beauty of the sets and the high quality of the actors in the series. This now four-volume series is for every family and everyone who loves Christmas. One footnote. Volume four re-introduces young Chloe from the very first chapter in the Evergreen series. She has grown into a lovely young lady who speaks fluent French (She now lives in Paris, but is visiting Evergreen to be with her adopted grandparents for the holidays.) David is also in another appearance and grows into his teen years very gracefully. He is a charmer. The snow globe still contains magic.
Each one has been less than the one before with this one being a real stinker. No aha moment for the Grinch. The first 20 minutes are spent in silliness as they overenthusiastically greet Everyone. Several snowball fights to waste even more time since they had no real plot or big moment to build up to. The two young female leads are excellent, especially Holly Robinson Peet. It's just not interesting or entertaining. And there's a subtle push apparent for a more liberal Hallmark. I watch these to escape all that. So this one is a One watch wonder and into the trash it goes.
I do like most of the actors in the continuing your story, but that was when they left their woke beliefs behind the camera. Hallmark is losing the audience that brought them to the dance. The previous year started the woke train, and this one drove it off the tracks!! It's most likely the last one I will buy or even ask for as a gift. Don't expect the stories from the first 2, or you will be VERY disappointed!! Go to "UP" if you're looking for the type of movies you used to get from Hallmark!! I guarantee that they won't miss any of us who jump off their sinking ship!!
