  1. Will it all work out in the end? It is a Hallmark movie, so what do you think? [25 Nov 2005, p.97]
  2. Yes, it's all fairly formulaic.
  3. Despite its pedigree as a "Hallmark Hall of Fame" presentation, "Silver Bells" is only slightly more sophisticated than an after-school special.
  4. Like a Hallmark card, it is a thing of prefabricated sentiment.
  5. 25
