| Background music too loud
This is a heartwarming Hallmark film about a family torn apart and reunites after the father dies from an accident. The scenery of the lake was spectacular and the acting was excellent. You could really relate to each of their parts.

The only problem I had with the film was the loud music playing constantly in the background. Music is supposed to be in the background, so you can hear each word clearly. Now Hallmark has the music louder than the speaking and continuous. It is like going to a concert and a lecture at the same time and trying to give attention to each equally. Years ago the classic films did not have music when there was speaking unless it was at a climatic point in the movie. I love Hallmark movies, but if I can't hear it clearly, I turn it off half way through the movie. My family and I all have perfect hearing, so it has nothing to do with that. It just annoys all of us and is very disappointing.
