Product Description

When do you take a chance on love? It's a question columnist Peyton MacGruder (Genie Francis, "General Hospital") asks herself and her readers. Haunted by past mistakes, Peyton hesitates to take the next step with the man she loves (Ted McGinley, "Hope & Faith"). But a note from a reader warns about the regret caused by passion denied. Peyton uncovers the author's secret history involving a doomed romance? and a love which may yet live again. The characters created by bestselling novelist Angela Hunt return in romantic tale of love that just might change your life.

Amazon.com

Genie Francis, though perhaps best known for her successful run as a wee lass on General Hospital in the 1980s, is a gem of a dramatic actress, and the Hallmark TV movies based on Angela Hunt’s The Note novels are a testament to this. Francis is easy in her skin, which makes her disappear into any character, and this is a key reason why The Note II: Taking a Chance on Love is, like its predecessor, so incredibly engaging.

Francis again plays reporter Peyton MacGruder, a woman trained to observe and be in tune with minute details, except where her own heart is concerned. A note from a reader warns about the heartbreak of the romantic road not taken, and as Peyton investigates the mystery behind the note, her own romantic possibilities lie yet undiscovered. Francis has easy chemistry with her costar, Ted McGinley, whose character, King, tries to give Peyton the room she needs to discover how--or whether--to take the next steps in their relationship. McGinley is hunky yet believable, and he’s patient, though his patience can be strained. The reward of The Note II: Taking a Chance on Love is the genuineness of the cast and their interaction. Life, and love, must be grabbed.

Extras include winning interviews with Francis and McGinley talking about their characters, a peek at the mother-daughter relationship (with Katie Boland's Christine), and the history of novelist Angela Hunt's magical The Note, which inspired the series. --A.T. Hurley

I saw this movie on tv and then ordered it. It is a great movie as a followup on 2 families with diferent circumstances brought together almost by chance to develope close interpersonal relationships to unite them making them each a part of the other. If no one had known the circumstances, you would have thought they belonged together to begin with. Wished it could have lasted longer.Or maybe a sequel to growing older together with grandkids????

Format: DVD
"THE NOTE" was the #1 Rated Hallmark Channel Original Movie which stars Genie Francis and Ted McGinley as Peyton and King return again with the the sequel, "The Note II: Taking a Chance on Love".

VIDEO & AUDIO:

"The Note II: Taking a Chance on Love" is a cable movie that is featured in anamorphic widescreen (1:85:1 aspect ratio) and featured in English 5.1 (Dolby Digital). Whereas the last film featured Peyton everywhere and ths more location shots, you still get a good amount of outdoor shots between her and King but also within the storyline of Eve Miller and her friends.

As for the audio, it is Dolby Digital and because the film is dialogue driven, it's front channel heavy but dialogue is clear and concise. Not much use of rear channel or subwoofer audio but there is no need for it.

SPECIAL FEATURES:

The following special features are included on the DVD:

* Heart Healers: Genie Francis and Ted McGinley - (4:52) Interviews with Genie Francis and Ted McGinley about the sequel and having to work together again, talking about their characters and taking a chance on love.
* Mother & Daughter - (4:12) Interviews with Genie Francis and Katie Boland about their characters and the relationship between Peyton and Christine.
* How It all Began: Notes on "The Note" - (4:02) A summarized version of "The Note" into four minutes.

JUDGMENT CALL:

"The Note II: Taking a Chance on Love" was another heartwarming film and for those who enjoyed the first film, it was pretty enjoyable to see the characters reunite again.

I really enjoyed The Note - but was disappointed in The Note II. The first one offered a more conservative viewpoint but the second one had suggestive behavior and language that the first one did not have. They just didn't go together.

We romantic viewers cheered the wonderful characters played by Genie Francis and Ted McGinley and their supporting cast in "The Note". The Note II is another beautiful rendering of people who not only love deeply but have great integrity as well. Hooray for another fine piece of work!

My wife & I enjoyed the movie very much. While the first one was better, this one is nice because it continues with a small twist. Nice family and couples movie.

Taking a Chance on Love was charming. I enjoyed it even more than The Note. I thought the acting was better in this one and much more endearing. Genie Francis was much more relaxed in the role.

I love the movie and watch it a couple times a week. The music is fantastic. I have done endless searches to identify the song played during the dance scene with no success. I will continue my search. I actually bought both of these movies and would reccomend them to you.
