Hallmark's "Time for Him to Come Home for Christmas--" Is Holland Roden the Best Co-Star for Tyler Hynes?

Four days before Christmas, Elizabeth receives a voicemail from a number she doesn't recognize from a man who makes one final plea to the love of his life. Starring:  Holland Roden, Tyler Hynes, Tenille Townes  Image:  Hallmark Media Time for Him to Come Home for Christmas Is a Compelling Story The movie plot combines tragedy, triumph, love, and mystery--there's a lot going on to keep the viewer engaged.  Time for Him to Come Home for Christmas also uses my favorite trope:  The Misunderstanding . Elizabeth (Holland Roden), Josh (Tyler Hynes), and Andrew (David Lennon) have been best friends for years.   After college, Elizabeth has big plans to be a writer for The New York Times .  Three years later, she is working as an executive assistant at her mom's company instead of following her dreams.

Review: Hallmark's "Take Me Back for Christmas" Is One of Their BEST New Movies!

Renée (Lengies) has always dreamed of running her own business, and her husband, Aaron (Sevier), reluctantly sells insurance despite longing to be a chef.  The couple initially move to New York to follow their vision but return to the suburbs after only three months to care for Renée's mother,

Review: Here's Why Hallmark's "A Royal Christmas Crush" Is a Disappointment

Ava accepts the opportunity of a lifetime to work at the Royal Ice Hotel which leads her to a surprise whirlwind romance with the most important guest of all, the Royal Prince himself.  Starring:  Katie Cassidy and Stephen Huszar  Image:  Hallmark Media A Royal Christmas Crush Premieres During Hallmark's 2023 Christmas in July Event   When Hallmark premieres dozens of new Christmas movies in the fourth quarter faster than Mrs. Santa cranks out sugar cookies, you expect a handful of duds.  Hallmark's business model is quantity over quality. Hallmark fans eagerly await  Christmas in July.  They adjust the air conditioner to chill the house, snuggle under a fuzzy blanket, sip hot chocolate, and get swept away with the magic of Christmas, even during the hottest month of the year. As a special treat, Hallmark premieres one or more Christmas movies each July to add a delightful twinkle to summer--and not the blinking kind from all the lightening bugs in your backyard. A lot of buzz
