Another winner

In my opinion, Nikki DeLoach is Hallmark's best actor. Her movies aren't the fluffy ones that are stereotypical romance movies.

This movie has echoes of other movies. A beloved deceased relative leaves evidence behind of a first love before marrying the spouse that all the family knew. There's a beloved family store. This one isn't going bankrupt, but it's gotten disorganized. Widowed mom meets someone. The leading lady has a boyfriend and there was an aborted proposal at the beginning. Then back at her hometown she runs into an old flame that didn't end well when they were young.

But there's more to this movie. The title refers to Clara's expressed wish for 5 more minutes with her late Grandfather. That theme isn't a casual one. But saying more is definite spoilers.

There is a major twist with subtle clues foreshadowing it. I was very lucky to spot the clues and interpret them from the first.

Very nice ending. Sappy, but I love sappy.

Based on a Country Song, but No Beer, Guns or Dogs.

I approached this one with a lot of misgiving. I mean, a story based on a country song? By Scotty McCreery? But to my surprise, it was pretty good. Nikki Deloach, who is good as always, is a dedicated Art teacher who is losing her job and is having doubts about her relationship with her boyfriend. She wishes she could have just five more minutes with her beloved late Grandpa who always gave her great advice.

When she goes home to celebrate Christmas(?) Thanksgiving (?) I don't remember, she finds a journal written by Grandpa when he was a young man detailing his first lost love. She gets together with an old ex-boyfriend, and they decide to try to find her. Or was that another movie, Christmas Together with You? They're already starting to run together a bit. At the same time, a young man shows up for a job at her store because he said her grandpa was going to hire him. He turns out to be a wonder and is the best employee ever. It's pretty clear from the get-go that something spooky is going on. There are lots of clues, which I'll keep to myself.

Sherry Miller plays Bonnie, Clara's mom, who lost her husband about a year ago. She looks great. I always think of the actress with fondness because she was in one of my favorite TV romcoms, This Matter of Marriage, back in the late '90s when she was a young whippersnapper. Highly recommend. She has her own romance along with her daughter finding love with her ex, Logan, and dumping her current beau. I liked that Bonnie did not approve of the ex, who behaved badly dumping Clara when they were teens, and kept giving him the stink-eye. She came around though.

There were a couple of things I did not like. Despite both Clara and Logan being established as Hallmark paragons of niceness, they both behaved badly. Logan kept putting the moves on Clara even after she said she had a boyfriend. And Clara totally dumped Logan and canceled an invitation for the family-less guy to spend Thanksgiving (?) Christmas (?) with her family just because he was called back to active duty. This was really low behavior and hardly patriotic or compassionate. Also contrary to the Hallmark ethos. The third thing I didn't like was the under-use of Leanne Lapp who played Clara's sister and a favorite of mine.

A wonderful lesson about how precious time with your loved ones really is.

Five more minutes gets right to the heart of the matter...time with loved ones is precious and so often people are wishing for just five more minutes when they should be living like these are their last minutes , so their loved ones always know how they feel.

Clara goes home for Christmas to help her mother at the bakery her recently deceased grandfather owned and ran, for Christmas. While home she wishes she had just five more minutes with her grandfather, reconnects with her adventurous first love, and finds out about her grandfather's first love through his journal.

Overall message of this film is great and the country song about five-more minutes make this a much watch holiday film.
