I fell in love with the movie, The Note after watching it premier on the Hallmark Channel, I couldn’t wait to see the sequel. Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to watch, The Note II: Taking a Chance on Love. This movie brings back the two wonderful actors, Genie Francis and Ted McGinley reprising their roles as a columnist and a sports writer brought together by the power of words and of course, the power of love. This movie is a wonderful love story, which are my favorite movies of all times. I was very entertained with the number of relationship issues that were exposed in the Note II. The movie touches shows the real divorce impact on children, marital infidelity, an actors attempt on suicide, giving up a child for adoption, and a lot of other realistic issues. Here is an excerpt of the story from Hallmark’s Website:
“Having been reunited with Christine, the daughter she gave up for adoption 18 years earlier, Peyton MacGruder (Genie Francis) is still learning the ropes of parenting. She’s also busy writing her “Heart Healer” column, as well as managing a relationship with coworker and boyfriend King Danville (Ted McGinley). But when King asks Peyton to marry him, she’s too afraid to take a chance at a life she deserves. A note to Peyton from a loyal reader of her column leads to a new friendship, one that will teach Peyton that when it comes to making decisions, there’s a time to be cautious and a time to follow your heart.”
I recommend watching the first movie, The Note before watching the sequel, just so you won’ be lost. But otherwise, this movie was great. I liked that it can relate to all audiences and personal issues. I wouldn’t recommend this movie to men though, it is definitely a chick flick. My husband lost interest withing 15 minutes and ended up playing on the computer all night. I was left wondering and wanting a third movie. The Note II will be released on DVD on May 5, 2009, which is just in time for Mother’s Day.
