Always good to see her acting. But even better would be some sort of OLTL V3.

I know some feel this is dead issue… but TV land can surprising… my fingers will remain crossed.

Just finished this movie… honestly I thought she would have more that a 90 second appearance.

They should have made her role much larger.

Will be so happy to see her work again. As a rule I don’t watch Hallmark movies, but I will definitely make an exception for this one!

LMN; I think it’s the Lifetime Movie Network, always has soap actors in their movies; probably a built-in audience for them. Always notice when I’m channel surfing…

As long as Hallmark keeps using our soap stars I’ll continue watching. The last one with Jen Lilley, Rayn Paevey and Linda Dano in it was a joy to watch. I so enjoyed watching Ms. Slezak on OLTL, so I’m sure I’ll be thrilled to see her in this movie, too!

Great news. Watching Erika Slezak is always a wonderful treat. Not a day goes by that I don’t miss her and our beloved One Life to Live. I’m not big on Hallmark movies but I’ll certainly tune into for this one. Please keep us posted on the air date.

I saw the movie wondering what year it was from? Its brand new in 2021!
A Christmas Hallmark movie is just the thing to capure the warmth and charm, the special sparkly magic of Erica Slezak. If you love Erica from the debths of your soul as I do(!) this reunion is all you could wish for to set your hear aglow. Merry Christmas Erica Slezak!

Ugh… I was hoping this movie would be a little more like “Back To The Future” (with Lea Thompson & Christopher Lloyd both involved, no less) and less of the typical Hallmark Helliday sappiness.

Sadly, I was wrong. Time travel elements aside, it’s the same formula as every other movie they air the last three months of the year, every year.

Thank Hell it was the only such movie I suffered through this Helliday season.
