Hallmark Hall of Fame, so very family friendly. I had read the book and the movie was not a disappointment. The scenes between Francis and McGinley are very sweet.

"What a wonderful film! I loved it! Genie Francis and Ted McGinley are smashing!! In The Note, Francis is Peyton MacGruder, a human-interest columnist told to increase her readership or move on. When a plane crash nearby kills everyone onboard, Peyton happens across a note addressed simply to "T." Peyton holds close the note's contents. She simply pledges to find the intended recipient and chronicle the search in her column. . . and readership zooms. Along the way, through the people she meets--and her friendship with McKinley's character, a fellow reporter--she finds her "voice," herself, and more. No spoilers: just know that no life is left untouched . . . and twists abound. Leaves you better than it found you! Buy this one, you'll want to see this one over and over again!"
Must Have Movie

"I am looking forward to this movie being on DVD. I fell in love with it when it premiered on the Hallmark Channel in 2007. I caught it each time it came on and was delighted when it was shown again this past summer. Its message is timeless. It is well written with a twist of romance and a hint of humor. Genie Francis has been one of my favorite actresses and does an amazing job. She brings much emotion to the story and makes it so real. Ted McGinley became my favorite leading man. He and Genie have great chemistry. This is a must see for all."

"This will be buried among all the glowing reviews, but I wanted to share my thoughts. The message of forgiveness in this movie comes through loud and clear. It is uplifting and inspiring in many ways.
But for me the chemistry between the lead characters lacked something. I know that is in direct contrast to what so many have said, but it was my honest reaction. I do not watch soap operas or today's sitcoms, so I have no history with either of the lead characters--I just based my feelings on what I saw in this movie and I had a hard time believing they would end up together.
Another comment, about the "edited movie" review. That is what actually convinced me to buy this. I had heard that when first aired on TV the movie contained multiple uses of the Lord's name as an exclamation, so I had avoided it. After reading the complaint that it was edited I figured, "What else would they edit?" and I gave it a try. I was pleased to be able to watch the movie without profane language."
