Hallmark's "A Picture of Her" Trivia QUIZ and More on the Movie

A woman becomes the subject of an award-winning magazine's cover and goes on a quest to uncover the identity of the mystery photographer who snapped her photo.

Starring:  Rhiannon Fish and Tyler Hynes

It's Impossible for Tyler Hynes to Make a Bad Movie

There's a reason why Tyler Hynes is one everyone's favorite Hallmark hunks--he's not only ridiculously adorable, but he's one of the best actors in the Hallmark family.  He creates characters who are warm, authentic, and oh so romantic!

Avid Hallmark watchers have been commenting on social media that many newer movies are just "okay" and not up to the same gold standard from prior years, thanks to Woke Wonya Lucas derailing the network with her own political agenda.

Viewers can watch with confidence when Hynes is the headliner--his movies are always stellar and never disappointing.

Just click on the image above to order.

Hynes praises co-star, Rhiannon Fish, for his latest movie magic.  In an exclusive interview with US Weekly, Hynes says, "I could do things, and she would be right there with me.  It wouldn't be thrown, wouldn't get discombobulated, she would just be present with me."  

With a co-star like Fish, Hynes felt he could "have some fun" and "play around," which is where he reveals "all the juicy stuff is."

There are definitely some juicy moments in this movie, including WAY more kissing than normal!

A Picture of Her Is a Realistic Take on Current Culture

We are bombarded every day with viral videos and social media posts, so the idea of someone's photo becoming an overnight sensation is a story within the realm of possibility.  

In the movie, Jake is assigned to capture candid "Spring in the City" shots at the local farmer's market, which are far more genuine.  They don't involve people posing but rather an artist catching something organic in life's unplanned moments.  The beauty of candid shots involves creating art from unidentified subjects who are unguarded, natural, vulnerable, and real. 

Hynes tells US Weekly how much he loves "the idea that [the] art and simplicity of authentic beauty and the finer details [are things] the world still cares about.  That the world is still moved by that."

Beth's favorite flower is the long-stemmed red rose, so when she stumbles upon a display of them at the farmer's market, Jake immortalizes the moment on camera.  When Jake meets Beth at the dog park and recognizes her from the photo, he is completely charmed by her and soon finds himself falling in love.

Jake accidentally includes Beth's picture in the e-mail file he sends to the magazine for which he freelances.  His mistake turns Beth into a media sensation, and she struggles to navigate instant stardom.

My Least Favorite Trope in A Picture of Her

A Picture of Her is a lovely story, despite the fact that my least favorite movie trope is included:  herniating unnecessary conflict over something that can easily be explained and resolved.

Jake and Beth are crazy about each other, so it's simply not believable that he avoids telling her that he's the photographer who snapped her picture.  When she learns his secret, she feels betrayed.  She thinks he used her to make a buck and then lied about it.  He says he had been afraid that telling her the truth would have changed everything and that he had been waiting until she knew him better to explain.

Jake's character is painted to be open, honest, caring, sweet, and loving, so it doesn't track for Beth to  think otherwise.  Hallmark writers need to find more creative ways to create conflict that makes sense.

Hallmark Can't Resist Including Woke Politics in A Picture of Her

Hallmark is compelled to incorporate wokeness in every new movie these days, and A Picture of Her is no exception.

The environment is the cult-like religion of progressives, so viewers are Earth-thumped in this movie repeatedly.
  • Beth's degree is in environmental studies, and her original plan had been to join a high-powered watchdog group to change the world.  (FYI--such watchdog groups are radical, climate-change activists who push hoaxes to seize political power.)
  • Beth says she likes to use her bicycle to reduce her carbon footprint. (In real life, people who lecture on carbon footprints are the elitists who fly private jets all around the world while threatening to ban vehicles for the rest of us.)
  • Even though she works on a fishing boat, Beth says she still "advocates for living in harmony with the environment." (Just as the Bible warned, we are living in a time when people worship the creation rather than the Creator.)
It's admirable to be a good steward of our resources, but Hallmark's fixation on the environment stems from left-wing activism.  We watch movies to be entertained, not indoctrinated.

Lacey Chabert Compromises Her Faith in Hallmark's "Groundswell"

Image:  Crown Media Lacey Chabert Is a Hallmark A-Lister Before Candace Cameron Bure left Hallmark for Great American Family, fans would good-naturedly spar over who should be crowned the network's Queen of Christmas --Bure or Lacey Chabert.  Starring in more leading roles on Hallmark than other actresses, both ladies seemed to retain a firm reign over the network, evidenced by their massive viewing audience. All fans have their favorite Chabert movie, but there's no denying that A Christmas Waltz was the number one most watched original movie premiere in 2020, and in 2022, The Wedding Veil broke Hallmark viewing records by drawing in more than 3.3 million live viewers.  In fact, The Wedding Veil outperformed all of Hallmark's 2021 movies, proving Chabert's popularity shows no sign of waning. Surprisingly, as many familiar faces left Hallmark for Great American Family, like Jen Lilley and CCB, Chabert not only stayed with Hallmark, but she also signed a 2-year deal

Did You Notice THIS Change In Hallmark's "Raise a Glass to Love?"

Starring:  Laura Osnes and Juan Pablo di Pace Released:  2021 (Fall Harvest) Summary:  An aspiring Master Sommelier returns to her family vineyard to study and is intrigued by the natural methods of the handsome new Argentinian winemaker. Magic happens when Hallmark actually uses talented actors instead of inexperienced "newbies." Jenna's Boyfriend, Aidan, Isn't A Weiner When a female lead already has a boyfriend before she meets her true love, Hallmark traditionally casts the secondary male character as a bit of a jerk, someone homely, or a puny fella so viewers won't get attached to him and be upset when he's kicked to the curb.  A recent example is Callie's ex-boyfriend, Joe, in Roadhouse Romance . Played by Adil Zaidi, no one is heartbroken when Callie decides against rekindling her romance with high school sweetheart, Joe. In a refreshing change-up, Raise a Glass to Love pairs Jenna Savern (Laura Osnes) with Aidan Parker (Matthew James Dowden).  Aida

Hallmark's "The Color of Rain" the True Story of Gina Kell and Michael Spehn

Starring:  Lacey Chabert and Warren Christie Released:  2014 Summary:  While consoling each other over the recent loss of their spouses, a man and a woman grow close and fall in love. Image:  Crown Media, United States LLC Gina Kell and Michael Spehn Find Love Despite Tragedy You've seen the movie, so you know the plot, but did you catch that it's based on a real-life story? Gina Kell's husband died on Christmas Day, 2005, from a rare and incurable cancer, leiomyocarcoma, which he battled for three years. Weeks later, Cathy Spehn died seventeen days after learning her painful headaches were a result of a brain cancer called glioblastoma multiforme. It's no wonder the two gravitated toward one another. It's like parenting--people who have never had children can't really grasp what life with kids is truly like on a daily basis.  Similarly, your heart can hurt for someone who has lost their spouse, but you can't relate to them on deeper le
