Christy: A New Beginning, DVD
The movie was a good wholesome family film. However if you watched the original TV series, this movie and the other ones are a disappointment. Only dr. MacNeil is portrayed by the original actor, about the only saving grace for the films. the actor playing david wasn't nearly as handsome or charming. Tyne Daly is the only actress that could portray ms. alice and the the young actress who portrayed christy did a good job, she just didnt convice me. only a handful of the original students are back. the girl playing ruby mae doesnt even have red hair. This Movie would have been a whole lot better if they could have gotten the original cast. I will give it 3 stars just for the wholesome value, and that we finally see who Christy ends up with. And she picked who I thought she would all along.

Not as disappointing as Change of Seasons for some reason. The acting was a bit better in this movie although the change of actors is a real let-down. I just wish they could have gotten more of the original cast. "David Grantland" is not believable in this movie. He just doesn't have the passion and connectiveness with the audience.
The only reason I bought this movie was to see who Christy eventually marries. My 2 daughters said they'll probably not watch it again. The prefer to keep watching the CHRISTY TV Series over and over.

We bought this for our granddaughter, so she could see the end of the story, so to speak. We previously bought the whole series from CBD and she watched each one (took her several trips to Grammy's to do so). She wanted to know the end (who she marries :) but I wouldn't tell her; so later she begged me and I asked if she really wanted to know, or if she wanted to watch the film, so we got this for her (we already saw it) and it is excellent; Great for tween- agers! They love the excitement and Christian romance (I did, too ) Dr. MacNeill is my fave, as well! She doesn't know yet...her birthday is coming soon. We also bought her the book, because she loves to read. I think the book is more difficult, so it will be easier for her now that she's seen the series. Books usually hold more details and information. I think she will love it.

I missed the characters from the old series, but it is great to learn who Christiy choses for a life mate. I had to remind myself that this is not a fiction, so the characters playing in the movie are only acting out real life events in this true story.
