MR. MIRACLE (2014)

December 6, 2014 2 Comments

One of the most memorable successes on Hallmark Channel was the adaptations of Debbie Macomber’s Mrs. Miracle series. The stories were heartwarming and even if the end seemed bittersweet, the scripts never gifted the viewers with anything less than a happy ending. Two films (Mrs. Miracle and Call me Mrs. Miracle) and four years later the network has again decided to revive the
series with a bit of a twist. 

Mr. Miracle (2014) Hallmark TV Film Review

His first time on earth is proving something of a challenge for Henry Mills (Rob Morrow). He’s an angel who needs to find his guide and as he’s looking her, his guide, Celeste (Michelle Harrison) tells us, she’s in for quite a challenge with this new angel. His mission is to help get Addie Folsom (Britt Irvin) back on track – she’s been living in a state of unhappiness since her father died and her mother hasn’t been able to help her like she needs. As a cover, Henry works as a teacher at the college Addie attends (something she’s doing again to honor her father after already failing the classes in the past), hoping to find a way to help Addie.

While there he does indeed find a cure to Addie’s pulling away from working at her father’s medical clinic. The childhood
neighbor that never ceased to tease Addie relentlessly is back and Erich (Andrew Francis) is suffering from an injury that requires care. Fortunately, with a bit of luck, the person to care for him just might be Addie.

Saying these adaptations are “cute” pretty much sums up what these movies are all about. In comparison to the prior Mrs. Miracle series, this one is more “silly” cute if that makes any sense. The reason being, as this is Henry’s first assignment, his childlike wonderment is too much. Instead of acting like an educated adult, he’s more likely to find excitement in everything he’s exposed to. It makes for an entertaining bout of humor, but what shocks me most is the characterization. I’d just come off seeing Rob Morrow in Numbers and so seeing him play so drastic a different character was humorous.

If you like Debbie Macomber’s novels or are looking for a bright bit of cheer this weekend, tune into the premiere of Mr. Miracle. I don’t think this film was as heartwarming as those with Doris Roberts’ Mrs. Miracle, still that’s no reason not to enjoy this latest Countdown to Christmas film.

    My sisters and I adore the Mrs. Miracle movies and were really excited to see this one as well until watching the trailer. I thought it looked a little sillier, like you said. Thanks for the review it was super helpful! :)

      It was sillier than the Mrs. Miracle movies. Mainly in the characterization of its titular character. It kind of reminded me of the movie Elf in that regards. Or that's what my memory came up with – it's been a while since I saw that one. :)
