Different directors, different feel
Verified purchase
Finding Father Christmas was an awesome movie, and from the reviews I hoped the Sequel, Engaging Father Christmas, would have the same effect for me. After thinking about the sequel, I looked to see if the movies had been directed by the same person, and they were not. I think the main difference in the movie can be found in the difference in the scenes where the couple kisses. Watch the first movie where the hero makes an impassioned plea to the heroine to STAY. Compare that to the second movie where the couple kisses as if they had first met, not like they had known each other for a year. I felt the second movie to have that same hesitant, reserved feel that showed the first movie to be so much more full of deep and honest feeling. In the second movie, why have the heroine withhold full information about the boyfriend; that seemed almost like high school, not two adults. Each scene seemed more stilted and staged. It doesn't mean that the second movie is not good, just not as terrific as the first movie. The first movie of course could draw you in deeply about the mystery of the father, whereas the second movie could not, and it is more difficult at least for me to watch romantic movies where the couple has known each other and there is more struggle than to stay in that romantic world that ends with happily ever after. Sometimes sequels are better than the first movie, but not in this case. I have watched the first movie over and over, but I just feel more lukewarm towards the second. Maybe if the projected third movie is directed by the person who did the first movie, there is more hope for similar. There were such rave reviews for the second movie, I don't mean to spoil it for anyone, just wanted to add my own thoughts that the reviews for the second movie misled me a bit.

Finding Father Christmas, Engaging Father Christmas, and Marrying Father Christmas
Verified purchase
I enjoyed watching these three Hallmark Christmas movies so much I bought the trilogy for my own video library. Now I can watch them anytime I choose. As far as I am concerned, they are the best love stories I have watched yet by Hallmark Movies Now. With Hallmark Movies, you don't have to worry about sex or cursing because there is none. So all females in a family can enjoy these watching them together. Twenty dollars for the 3 dvd downloads is money well spent for a Christmas gift to myself for my Prime Video Library. I highly recommend them to all females, regardless of age.

Great Sequel to Finding Father Christmas
Verified purchase
This sequel was as great as the first moving, "Finding Father Christmas." The story and characters drew me in and I loved this Christmas story of truth and grace. I highly recommend both movies. Now I'm going to read the books by Robin Jones Gunn, and the third in the series, "Marrying Father Christmas."

Cold and snow and yikes, trouble

What is wrong with these people. Where are the head scarves, toboggans and gloves? If it is so cold, why do they always dress improperly? As much as I love Hallmark, that is one detail I would like to see them improve on. Otherwise how stupid can Miranda be? She told a man she has not seen in two years a huge family secret she would not even share with her closest friends. That is going to cost a lot. Enjoyable so far. Erin and Niall sure have good chemistry. Enjoy!! :)

first in series much better
Verified purchase
I find that they are beating a horse that should have been left alone. first movie was good, sweet and light but they made this for some reason and then ...... yet another. sometime it is better to make one movie well and leave it at that. i find no chemistry between the leads so rather dull..

Great Movie!
Verified purchase
This is the sequel to the movie, "Finding Father Christmas," which we watched earlier. This continues the story of two lovely people who fall in love, but not without some "hurdles" to get over. We enjoyed this movie very much and look forward to the "final" sequel, "Marrying Father Christmas" (which should be available soon)!

The best movie series on Hallmark
Verified purchase
I wish all of the Hallmark movies could be like this. There is so much chemistry between the lead characters. All three movies are on my top 10 list of Christmas movies.
