Product Description

Following a tragic plane crash, newspaper columnist Peyton MacGruder discovers a note that was from one of the passengers onboard. She sets on a quest to find the person for whom it was intended, and discovers the life it will change is her own.

Amazon.com

The Note is vaguely reminiscent of the 1999 Kevin Costner film Message in a Bottle--in which a newspaper reporter finds a letter in a bottle and tracks down the author. In this movie, newspaper columnist Peyton Macgruder (Genie Francis) discovers a note that appears to have been written by a father to his child just minutes before his plane crashed. Peyton--who lost her own husband in tragic accident--is compelled to figure out who the letter was intended for and deliver it to that person. Floundering at work and unable to find true love, she figures she has nothing to lose. Peyton is the kind of heroine who appears the most comfortable when she is experiencing a bit of misery. As she writes about her progress, she is surprised that her nearly-canceled column is now attracting national attention; readers turn to her column hoping to learn for the identity of the note's recipient. The movie (which was Hallmark's No. 1 rated picture for 2007) is designed to tug at viewers' heartstrings and Francis is more than up to the task to achieve this goal. After spending years owning the character of Laura Spencer on General Hospital, Francis eases into the role, making Peyton believable even in unbelievable situations. Ted McGinley (Married with Children) does a nice, understated job as her colleague and potential love interest. Based on the novel by Angela Hunt, the film is faithful to the film's core. It ends as it should--on a positive (albeit expected) note--with our plucky heroine rediscovering how to love and forgive herself as much as she does others. --Jae-Ha Kim

What a wonderful film! I loved it! Genie Francis and Ted McGinley are smashing!! In The Note, Francis is Peyton MacGruder, a human-interest columnist told to increase her readership or move on. When a plane crash nearby kills everyone onboard, Peyton happens across a note addressed simply to "T." Peyton holds close the note's contents. She simply pledges to find the intended recipient and chronicle the search in her column. . . and readership zooms. Along the way, through the people she meets--and her friendship with McKinley's character, a fellow reporter--she finds her "voice," herself, and more. No spoilers: just know that no life is left untouched . . . and twists abound. Leaves you better than it found you! Buy this one, you'll want to see this one over and over again!

This will be buried among all the glowing reviews, but I wanted to share my thoughts. The message of forgiveness in this movie comes through loud and clear. It is uplifting and inspiring in many ways.
But for me the chemistry between the lead characters lacked something. I know that is in direct contrast to what so many have said, but it was my honest reaction. I do not watch soap operas or today's sitcoms, so I have no history with either of the lead characters--I just based my feelings on what I saw in this movie and I had a hard time believing they would end up together.
Another comment, about the "edited movie" review. That is what actually convinced me to buy this. I had heard that when first aired on TV the movie was clean, but contained multiple uses of the Lord's name as an exclamation, so I had avoided it. After reading the complaint that it was edited I figured, "What else would they edit?" and I gave it a try. I was pleased to be able to watch the movie without profane language.

I am looking forward to this movie being on DVD. I fell in love with it when it premiered on the Hallmark Channel in 2007. I caught it each time it came on and was delighted when it was shown again this past summer. Its message is timeless. It is well written with a twist of romance and a hint of humor. Genie Francis has been one of my favorite actresses and does an amazing job. She brings much emotion to the story and makes it so real. Ted McGinley became my favorite leading man. He and Genie have great chemistry. This is a must see for all.

I was very pleased with THE NOTE. I bought it to put in our church library so the standards I measured it by were more stringent than a person might have for viewing in his own home. It met those standards.

I agree with all of the positive reviews and have nothing to add except to note the sub-text of the beautifully written script...
Forgiveness is a key that can open doors to blocked lives...Especially the need to forgive ourselves...While very entertaining, I felt this was a truly spiritual film with a buried treasure. I strongly suggest that you watch the included interviews with the star and the author...

Have you ever wondered about what goes through the minds of people who had only a few minutes left in their life before a tragedy?

This question is explored through an uplifting and touching film which was the #1 rated Hallmark film in 2007.

The film stars "General Hospital" Daytime Emmy award winner Genie Francis who plays the part of Peyton MacGruder, a newspaper columnist, who is on the verge of losing her job due to low readership.

On that same day, a flight crashes in the ocean and while she sits alone on the rocks near the ocean, she finds burnt wreckage and floating along the wreckage and stuck between the rocks is a plastic bag with a note.

From that moment on, Peyton knows that she needs to write a story to keep her job, improve her readership and what best than to write an ongoing column about finding out who the writer was and find the person who the letter was written for.

But during the process of writing the column, the note seems to have a positive affect for the people affected by the death of a love one on that flight but also through the journey of writing these columns and meeting these people, it opens up old wounds for Peyton and for her to confront emotions she has harbored inside her broken heart.

Also starring in the film is actor Ted McGinley ("Hope & Faith") who plays a fellow award winning sportswriter who helps Peyton by giving her advice, encouragement but most of all, his loving heart.

VIDEO:

The film is featured in 1:75:1 anamorphic widescreen. A lot of the scenes are shot indoors but for a Holiday film, a good touch of winter and everything looks pretty good.

AUDIO:

Audio is presented in English 5.1 (Dolby Digital).

This is the second movie that I purchased from Amazon that has edited content. The Note aired on the Hallmark Channel with words that have been substituted in the DVD that I purchased from Amazon. It is disconcerting to watch the actors say words that are not reflected in the audio of the DVD. I wouldn't have purchased the DVD from Amazon if I had known they would not carry the original version. I will be purchasing a DVD of this movie from the Hallmark Channel, but will ensure that it is the full original version before I buy it.
