Editorial Reviews

Set in early twentieth century Tennessee, this touching family film tells the story of a schoolteacher, Christy Huddleston, who learns lessons in loyalty, faith, and friendship when she attempts to force a small community into progressing with the outside world.

Considered an outsider by the residents of Cutter Gap, Christy is beloved as a teacher but begins to stir up conflict with her pleas for progress and stories of an outside world of skyscrapers and modern conveniences. When a free-spirited woman aviator crash lands in Cutter Gap, the attention is taken off Christy . . . until a series of robberies occur. Believing the thieves would never have come if it were not for the new road that Christy had built, the town unites against her. Faced with this series of setbacks, Christy contemplates returning home to North Carolina, but is persuaded to stay when she realizes she has much more to learn about her new friends . . . and herself!

4.0 out of 5 stars A new "Christy" story August 14, 2001
Format:DVD
You're either a Christy fan or not, so I'm not going to bother summarizing the plot. If you're a Christy fan, you'll like it. However, I don't think I'd start a new Christy viewer out on these movies. They start after the series' end, with first "Return to Cutter Gap" and then "A Change of Seasons" and "A New Beginning." Start a Christy newbie with the first few series episodes. However, for returning Christy fans, this is another enjoyable movie with no objectionable language or behavior, and a pleasing addition to the Christy canon.
What is new to these movies from the series (besides cast changes) is the envelope, discussions between the aged Christy and her daughter "Catherine" as Catherine brings her mother to revisit Cutter Gap. (Those who have read Catherine Marshall's book _Christy_, on which the series and now the movie are loosely based, know that the Christy character is somewhat based on Catherine Marshall's mother.) And the whole Margaret McNeill sub-plot is ignored as if it had never happened (which, in the book, it didn't -- Margaret died before Christy ever came to Cutter Gap and didn't keep popping up to torment Neil and Miss Alice.) But the envelope and occasional voice-overs by the "older" Christy are okay and the story is involving, with poachers and an early aviatrix descending on Cutter Gap. Interestingly, the aviatrix Harriet Quimby was a real person and this episode left me wondering whether she and Catherine Marshall's real-life mother ever met.
The cast changes are neutral to slightly disappointing. Lauren Lee Smith's portrayal of Christy is as perky and naive as Kellie Martin's was.

2.0 out of 5 stars Shocked and disappointed! May 31, 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I can't believe how much the quality of this series has gone downhill. Seeing someone other than Tyne Daly playing Miss Alice is almost enough to drive me to tears. No one can play Christy as effortlessly as Kellie Martin did. Thankfully Dr. McNeil is still played by the same actor, and he has become the only good reason to keep watching. The producers should have done anything, everything, whatever it took to re-assemble the original cast.

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointed fan May 3, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
I came into this movie with lots of expectations and sweet memory from the original tv series but only found myself shocked and heart broken.
The previous viewer was right about the problem of charactors inconsistency which was the main reason that destroyed everything good left from the original series. In my heart, Kellie Martin is always the Christy I remembered in the smoky mountain who was willing to fight for her children and Rand was the pastor who shared God's love in whatever he said or did.
All of the above was missing in the movies and to my worst nightmare, what the charactors portrayed was just the opposite!!! The only actor I like is Dr. Neil McNeil. Please bring back the original cast back to the film production.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is not Christy August 18, 2007
Format:DVD
This movie just was not Christy if you want to see Christy watch the original series starring Kellie Martin now that's how it should be played. There was so much about this that I didn't like that I won't even waste time saying it all lol. I don't usually give bad reviews but this one deserves it and I would hate for someone to waste their time and money on this one. Just a bad rendition of the story imo and I agree with a lot of the other reviewers it just doesn't work at all.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disapointing August 29, 2007
Format:DVD
This series is a sorry replacement for the original. Aside from Stewart Finlay-McClelan, the acting is terrible! I would only reccomend watching the last episode for closure from the original, but that's it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Realistic Expectations August 18, 2010
By Rodie
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I loved watching Christy when it was on t.v. Why an Emmy-winning series deserved to be cancelled, I'll never understand. After purchasing the series on dvd, I was again in love with the series and wished beyond all hope that there would be more. I was so excited to learn that there were movies. Though I knew that many (read: all but ONE) of the main characters did not return (Alas!), I thought that the story line would be enough to carry it through to the conclusion--especially since Stewart Finlay-McLennan returned. I am Very Disappointed. Most of the acting is atrocious - especially the New Christy (Lauren Lee Smith) and Rev. Grantland (James Waterston). The new main characters just do not present the convincing embodiment of the characters. How I wish I could turn back time and cause the series to continue for several more seasons! If you are a devoted follower of the television series, don't bother buying the movies. If you must judge for yourself, rent the movies before deciding to purchase them.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could have been so much better March 23, 2002
Format:DVD
This uneven first entry in the "new" Christy movies has some good points, but falls down in character consistency. Lauren Lee Smith displays the necessary perkiness and innocence as Christy. The story is believable: Cutter Gap families resenting Christy's promotion of "progress," an attractive aviatrix making a forced landing in Cutter Gap and attracting male attention, thieves stealing the little that the Cutter Gap families had. Harriet Quimby was a real person, and I'd love to find out if she ever actually landed in the real Cutter Gap.
The big problem in this movie is characters acting in ways inconsistent with their established personas. Miss Alice blasts Christy when she is asked for advice (and frankly, Diane Ladd does not project the combination of earthy realism and spiritual concern that made Tyne Daly's performance so believable). David is obsessed with building a road to the exclusion of his pastoral duties. Neil spouts off lines like "I'm not a monk and I'm tired of living like one." None of these mis-characterizations were essential to the plot lines, so they just seemed sloppy.
This movie would be a good gift for confirmed Christy fans, but I can't recommend it to introduce anyone to the Christy shows.
