Tonight at 9est/8cst on ABC the are showing a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie named Christmas with Holly, based on Lisa Kleypas' best selling novel Christmas eve at Friday Harbor.
This was such a good book, I really hope the movie keeps the magic that was in the book.
I am usually disappointed in "based on the novel....." type movies, but I will be watching regardless.
Yes, the novel made into a movie thing never seems to work out well. Although I will watch them if I've read the book. Sometimes they resemble the book and sometimes they're completely changed.
Yeah, I was so disappointed in it. Lisa posted some BS on her Facebook about the changes being necessary to convey the message. blah blah blah.
Changing Renfield the (ugly) bulldog to Olive the (cute) basset hound conveyed what message?
or changing Nolan to Nagel
changing Sam to Scott
Changing Sam/Scott from owning a winery to being a contractor
Changing Alex from a contractor to some kind of scientist
Changing Maggie from a redheaded widow to a bleach blonde gal who got left at the altar.
I HATE when they change the story for no good reason, why even by the rights to the book if they are just gonna change the entire story
