Girls Gone Hallmark: Sweet Carolina
Megan and Wendy are back with this Girls Gone Hallmark bonus episode where they recap and review “Sweet Carolina” starring Lacey Chabert and Tyler Hynes. Where does this movie rank considering it’s a stand-alone Hallmark movie? Does Tyler Hynes deliver his trademark sexiness in this devastatingly sad movie? Let’s discuss it all. What did you think of Sweet Carolina? Are you a self-proclaimed Hynie? Email us at email@example.com. Megan and Wendy review the new Tyler Hynes movie “Sweet Carolina” which premiered on May 15, 2021. News and Notes about Sweet Carolina “Sweet Carolina” took place in North Carolina but was actually filmed in British Columbia, including Vancouver and Maple Ridge. The story was developed by Lacey Chabert and Jonathan Prince. Related: Listen to our reviews of other Tyler Hynes movies – On the 12th Date of Christmas and It Was Always You. Did You See That? One of our favorite segments of the podcast is Did You See That? where we point out, scrutinize and sometimes ever critique specific scenes from the movie. During this episode, we talk about this scene several times. First, because it was truly funny and felt organic. Lacey Chabert gets nailed in the face with a handful of baking flour and her reaction is priceless. We also talked about the candies on the countertop. The characters are supposed to be baking cookies for a fundraiser. While chocolate chips and other candies like M&Ms are reasonable choices to add to cookies, it looks like one container is full of hard candies like Runts. Tell us those aren’t Runts bananas in that center container. View this post on Instagram A post shared by 🎥🏴🔌📓 (@tyler_hynes) Did you love Sweet Carolina? This movie made Megan cry so hard that she had to wash her face and re-apply makeup!

Girls Gone Hallmark: Baby, It’s Cold Inside
Megan and Wendy recap and review Hallmark Channel’s “Baby, It’s Cold Inside” starring Jocelyn Hudon and Steve Lund. This is the first movie Wendy couldn’t finish. Megan is left with the burden of reviewing the whole movie but not before Wendy melts down about pancakes. Email the podcast! We read every email: email@example.com News and Notes About Baby, It’s Cold Inside Baby, It’s Cold Inside was filmed on location in Quebec at a real ice hotel. In fact, Hotel de Glace is the only ice hotel in North America and is operational during the months of January to March. Would you ever stay at an ice hotel? Email us. Actor Steve Lund said the filming location was so cold that electric socks were a must have. Electric socks? Who knew electric socks were even a thing? You can get them on Amazon for less that $40. What is a Kransekake? It was mentioned in this movie that the Ice Hotel was trying to wow the travel reviewer guy with some traditional Nordic desserts, specifically a kransekake. A kransekake is a tower of delicate cookie rings and is commonly served at weddings, parties and holidays. The kransekake used in Baby, It’s Cold Inside was a stack of pancakes. It wasn’t even close to what a kransekake looks like. Hanna then tried saving the day with an Aebleskiver recipe which is a round pancake ball typically served for breakfast. She somehow made a whole bunch of them using a cake pop pan. Nope. This what an Aebleskiver pan looks like. I’ve never ever heard of making Aebleskivers in a cake pop pan. Finally, the travel reviewer guy is presented with the classic French dessert: a croque-en-bouche. This whole scene in Baby, It’s Cold Inside was such a mess. What Next for Girls Gone Hallmark? Stay tuned as we’ll be back next week to review Sweet Carolina starring Lacey Chabert and Mr. Hynie himself.

Girls Gone Hallmark: Don’t Go Breaking My Heart
Megan and Wendy watch and recap Hallmark Channel’s Don’t Go Breaking My Heart in today’s new podcast episode. Listen in as they share their first impressions of the movie formerly known as Breakup Boot Camp, what they liked, what they wished for, and their favorite segment called “Did You See That?” We love to hear your thoughts on these movies too! Email the show at email@example.com and tell us how many stars you’d give Don’t Go Breaking My Heart. Megan and Wendy share their thoughts about Don’t Go Breaking My Heart which premiered on Hallmark Channel on March 27, 2021. News & Notes on Don’t Go Breaking My Heart Don’t Go Breaking My Heart was originally titled Breakup Boot Camp (and we think Hallmark should have kept the original title). Nina Weinman wrote this movie. She also wrote Playing Cupid (Love Ever After), Two for the Win (New Year, New Movies) and Never Kiss a Man in a Christmas Sweater (Countdown to Christmas 2020). The movie took place in Portland, Oregon but was filmed in Langely, British Columbia. As someone who has visited Portland several times, it was fun to see some familiar landmarks in the exterior shots. Italia Ricci (Miranda) has starred in hit shows like Designated Survivor, Chasing Life, Supergirl and coming soon to The Good Doctor.

It’s called Wonder by Shawn Mendes. A NOOM sign was displayed at the rock climbing gym where Miranda and Ben squared off in a climbing challenge. A commercial for NOOM was played after that scene. Nina Weinman writes some of the funniest lines for Hallmark Channel movies!
