2 Great TV Movies

"I bought this DVD for the Carol Burnett movie "Seasons of the Heart." But we'll get to that in a minute.
The first movie on this DVD (which is one disc by the way and not two like it says in the specs above) is called "A Season of Hope." JoBeth Williams and Ralph Waite lead the cast which also includes Erik Von Detten, Stephen Lang, and Jeremy London. I had never seen this before, and I thought it was very good. It was about a family who owns a lemon grove that is threatened by citrus canker. That is only the least of their problems as that family is falling apart. It was enjoyable, although predictable. The performances were all great, especially that of the wonderful JoBeth Williams.
Now for the reason I bought this DVD -- "Seasons of the Heart." I had seen this film when it originally aired, and I even taped it and have watched it several times over the years. Carol Burnett's performance is pretty brilliant. She gives a very subtle and touching performance. She truly shines, and she looks beautiful! The film also stars George Segal, Malcolm McDowell, and Eric Lloyd (from "The Santa Clause" films). This film was as good and touching as I had remembered, and it made me wish that Carol Burnett worked more! She really is wonderful in this film.
The sound and picture quality looked great to me -- I'm sure it's not up to some people's standards because these are TV movies from the 90's, but I thought they were fine. I definitely would recommend this DVD to others -- especially to fans of Carol Burnett!"
Neither was good...

"I originally bought these b\c I thought that the one was a movie I'd already seen (Season of Hope). It was not. I'm not sure if it's a sequel (a bad one, cuz it doesn't fit w\the 1st) or what it was. The 2nd I thought'd be really good cuz it has Carol Burnett in it. It was full of cursing and had no interest in it. The tags I saw for these movies were 'family', 'clean', 'inspirational', 'Christian', etc. Neither were any of these titles that I could see."
SEASON OF HOPE/SEASONS OF THE HEART

"IT WAS NOT THE MOVIE I THOUGHT I WAS GETTING, WHICH BY THE WAY HAS THE SAME TITLE (SEASONS OF THE HEART). SEASON OF HOPE WAS A VERY GOOD MOVIE FOR THE FAMILY WITH THE EXCEPT OF THE ONE SCENE THAT IS TOTALLY INAPPROPIATE."
