No plans on February 14? The network has got you covered with classic favorites, as well as new movies.
In a perfect world, a dream Valentine’s Day would probably involve one (or all) of these activities: a private helicopter ride to an amazing destination, an elegant five-course dinner at the hottest restaurant, a private performance by your favorite singer, or a scenic and romantic carriage ride. But we’re in the real world, so your Valentine’s Day plans (if you have any at all) are probably more low-key with dinner at or takeout from a favorite restaurant, a trip to the movies, or even something simple like exchanging cards and small gifts.
If your plans are a little lackluster this year, or even nonexistent, the Hallmark Channel has got you covered with its Countdown to Valentine’s Day. Like any holiday, Hallmark is going big and starting the countdown on February 3 and airing romantic comedies every weekend until February 14. So if you’re a sucker for these always formulaic and cheesy, but 100 percent entertaining romantic comedies, you have plenty of opportunities to crash on the couch with a bottle of wine and binge.
This year, the Hallmark Channel is adding three new movies to the lineup with some Hallmark movie veterans like Party of Five’s Lacey Chabert and The Wonder Years’s Danica McKellar. Take a look at them below, with descriptions from the network:
My Secret Valentine
“A young woman takes advice from the chalkboard notes that her mysterious house rental tenant leaves when a slick sales rep arrives with plans to buy her family’s prized winery.” It stars Lacey Chabert and Andrew Walker, and premieres on February 3rd at 9 p.m./8 p.m. central time.
Very, Very, Valentine
“When Helen, a kind hearted and shy florist, meets the perfect man at a Valentine's Masquerade Ball she enlists the help of her best friend Henry to track him down only to find that her perfect man may already be right in front of her.” It stars Danica McKellar, Cameron Mathison, and Damon Runyan, and premieres on February 10th at 9 p.m./8 p.m. central time.
Cooking with Love
“Optimistic and cheerful TV producer, Kelly, doesn’t have time for love. Bad boy celebrity chef, Stephen, doesn’t have time for anything besides cooking. Fun with a side of love ensues as Kelly and Stephen are paired on a children's cooking show.” It stars Ali Liebert and Brett Dalton, and premieres on February 11th at 9 p.m./8 p.m. central time.
We know, we know—you can probably guess the entire plot of these movies. It usually involves an unlucky-in-love woman who meets a dreamy man, there’s chemistry, some misunderstanding occurs, and a big, romantic gesture solves the day. But isn’t there something so comforting about that? Knowing exactly what you’re getting into? Take a look at the rest of the lineup at hallmarkchannel.com and get the popcorn ready.
