Candace Cameron Bure: ‘Sick To My Stomach’ About Hallmark Christmas Movie

Hallmark Channel, News

Candace Cameron Bure may be the Queen of Hallmark. However, this royal moniker does come with a lot of pressure. She says that this is so stressful, she was was “sick to my stomach” about her last Hallmark movie.

Why does she feel this way, and how did that Christmas movie, If I Only Had Christmas do for Hallmark?

Candace Cameron Bure Is ‘Sick To My Stomach’ Over Recent Hallmark Movie

Recently, Candace Cameron Bure was on the Christian podcast, The Call To Mastery with Jordan Raynor. Candace shared how much pressure it is to need to be at the top. The expectations are high at Hallmark, where she is the Queen of Christmas.

She admitted that “I actually got sick to my stomach on this last Christmas movie that aired in November because I’ve created an anxiety for myself. Because my movies have been the top-performing movie seven years in a row, and you know one day, you’re going to slide off that pedestal.”

Her 2020 Christmas movie was If I Only Had Christmas. This Hallmark Countdown to Christmas movie was a nod to The Wizard of Oz. She stars as Darcy Gale, a glass half -full publicist from Kansas. Her co-star is Warren Christie (The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year), who plays Glen Goodman, a grumpster.

Darcy has to work with a team that needs to find their courage, heart and know-how, to achieve an important goal.

Because CCB is Hallmark’s Queen of Christmas, and a Hallmark-style Wizard of Oz remake seemed like a perfect fit, fans were excited. But, a big story is a big risk. Therefore, there was an equal amount of skepticism and anticipation before it was released.

It makes sense that the Fuller House star was feeling a major case of butterflies.

How Did Candace Cameron Bure’s Latest Hallmark Movie Do?

So, did Candace Cameron Bure have a good reason to be so nervous about her latest Hallmark Christmas movie? Based on QC Approved, the premiere night viewers for If I only Had Christmas was 3.927 million viewers. That wound up second in this category, right behind  Lacey Chabert’s Christmas Waltz. Her dance-themed movie just managed to be at the top with 3.949 million viewers.

However, CCB’s movie topped the top Hallmark Christmas movies in a very significant way. Her Christmas movie had a .48 with viewers in the coveted 18-49 group. Christmas Waltz was .40. Otherwise, no other 2020 Hallmark movie got anywhere close.

What does this mean? This means that Candace Cameron Bure’s movies attract a younger base. This is good for advertising rates and it makes the network look good. CCB need not worry. She is still bringing it!

Who Can Star In A Hallmark Movie?

One of the top questions that Candace Cameron Bure gets is “How hard is it to be in a Hallmark movie?” or, “Like, ‘Can I be in a Hallmark movie?” Candace’s reply? “Are you a professional actor? No. Then no, you cannot.”

However, non-actors can be background actors. They are at the festivals and dances. There will not be talking roles, but you can certainly join in the Christmas fun!

  1. Candice Candice Cameron bure is 1 of my favorite actors and I am 70 years old you don’t have to be young to watch her movies they’re great and heart warming

    1. I Agree. My favorite. But of coarse I love all Hallmark movies. I am just not happy with the new pairing of same sex couples it isn’t the same for me to enjoy.

      1. We are behind that 100%. It’s really sad to think hallmark had to add that in to such a beautiful family shows. I don’t want your people being pushed in that direction and really refuse to watch it on hallmark .

        Thanks For speaking up !

        1. I guess I think same sex couples are families, too, and that’s what your channel changer is for. Not everything has be for your narrow demographic

      2. I totally agree! Not watching a lot of Hallmark shows anymore! I watch TV to been entertained and this is not entertaining!

        1. I’m so disappointed in the changes in Hallmark movies. I wouldn’t want my grandchildren watching. Especially since I won’t be watching. Plague go back to the old Hallmark.

    2. I agree and I hope she doesn’t make the mistake of going to GAC. Watched 2 of their movies and they were awful. They had stars I like too. Not professional and poor scripts.

    3. I am 75, and Candace is my favorite actor as well. Guess all age groups love her. Her movies are the first ones I look for on Hallmark! Which you could search for movies by actor.

      I also want to know when there will be a new Aurora Teagarden Mystery in 2022???

  2. My husband and I love Hallmark movies. We have noticed they have been introducing same sex relationships in their recent movies. We are also sickened by this . Hallmark has had the reputation as holesom family (traditional family) entertainment we could count on. Now not so much. There are more people that embrace traditional family life than you think. Please don’t be change your values, and force uour best actors to leave!

  3. I am glad other people feel the same that I do regarding same sex relationships on the Hallmark channels. I have been sickened by it and refuse to watch trash like that. For years I loved the Hallmark movies but rarely watch the channel anymore.

    1. It’s almost like the frog in the pot the theory to desensitise our children and families into accepting same sex couples as morally acceptable composition of family If hallmark wants to make money producing those shows they could invest with other networks i e. Netflix. Hallmark could continue producing shows traditional families can watch. I love Hallmark and didn’t know they were producing same sex shows.

  4. Why can’t things stay the same enjoy all the movies but last year are two not so much why can’t home and family come back enjoyed so much

  5. If Hallmark continues with same sex relationships I will no longer watch. Too many changes and not for the good😥

  6. Hallmark needs to start tagging which movies have same sex couples in them so people can be informed of what movies they can skip watching.

  7. I agree wholeheartedly. I am sick of the change. I don’t like seeing all the changes to the wholesome movies, into the; same sex stories; the mixed race marriages; and the like. There are quite a few black actors/Actresses whom I really like. And I like seeing them in your movies. However, I’m sick of the fact that now, you seem to HAVE to incorporate mixed marriages/ relationships into EVERY new movie. ALSO, a lesbian relationship in all of them. Doesn’t making ALL of the “bosses”, over the White stars, black, satisfy the NAACP’s “requirements/ demands for “equal” inclusions. ❓❓❓❓ I used to like watching these movies with my grandkids. NOT ANYMORE. YES, I know these things are going on in the world. BUT, Not as prevalent as you are cramming down our throats. ‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️. And, as I believe you are being forced ( ⁉️⁉️⁉️)
    to show us, in your movies, the last couple of years.
    PLEASE, return to the sweet wholesome stories we have loved for so many years now. 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

    1. I agree!! I realize it’s out there, but I shouldn’t have to be subjected to it in my own home! Not much good wholesomeness out there to watch…Hallmark should leave it out!!!

  8. I want be wait not any of my family will , I will have to say good by to hall
    Mark i really enjoyed the show

    1. Not sure what one has to do with the other, however, just because someone does not like having a topic or subject being force-fed does not make him/her phobic. It is their preference. If you like chocolate ice cream does not mean you hate vanilla. It’s your preference. Let’s not over dramatize this.

  9. Agree with comments about same sex couples, mixed couples. Feel like it’s being forced on us, have stopped watching when a!ready started watching the movie

  10. I feel the same way I shouldn’t have to be subjected I don’t hate! but it feels like all television shows are headed that way. At one time you could count on the hallmark channel well I guess it’s time to go back to the and (Vhs)tapes and (TCM) this away you can control what you want to watch instead of someone else. My God it’s truly time to pray 🙏!!

  11. I have watched the Hallmark Channel for over 10 years and close to 700 movies. The movies in 2021 were in my opinion the worst movies yet. I don’t want to see same sex relationships or mixed relationships and refuse to watch those movies containg them I too wish they would be tagged so we could choose whether to watch or not. This may be the way the world is but it does not align with what I think should be the worldview and goes against my beliefs of what is wholesome and acceptable relationships. I do not like it shoved in my face nor marketed to me. Hallmark is not the wholesome channel it once was and that is regrettable. I am very selective on what I watch on there now. I enjoyed all the GAC Christmas movies in 2021 and preferred them over Hallmark.

  12. Stick to the basics!!! NO SAME SEX MARRIAGES . HALLMARK is a family channel. Keep it that way. There needs to be some wholesome, family, shows that promote love and respect as God intended us to be. Actually 2 people of the same sex cannot biologically create a child. Scientifically….it takes a man and a woman to create another human being. Just as in nature, it takes a male dog to impregnate a female dog. Balance of nature from the beginning of time. Adam was created a man and Eve was created a woman.

    1. Sadly to a non-believer, your comment means absolutely nothing. You are wasting your time, and energy. While it is true that Hallmark used to be a family channel, for the past 2 or 3 years that has begun to fade away. I’ve turned to my CDs, old reruns and other channels that have some decent programming, which I truly believe is what we will all have to do sooner than we’d like.

  13. I agree with all the statement above hallmark use to be family show but not any more we don’t need to transform to this world of thinking and watching.

  14. Same sex couples on Hallmark has ruined The Hallmark Channel. A family friendly channel has gone sour on its fans. Also dislike the pairing of stars you like with mixed race themes. When they put Ashley Williams in one, is was totally disgusting.

  15. Everyone has an opinion and they should! But remember the old saying you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink! If enough of us don’t watch their large empire will crumble! Then where will they be! I have been with Hallmark since 2006. My Christmas centers around Hallmark ornaments! I hate to make a change, I spend around 1200.00 at hallmark on. Ornaments every year, 1/2 in July the other 1/2 in october, sadly this will be the last year! I believe if we do our our part GOD will handle the rest! We are responsible for our actions and our actions only!

  16. There are boundaries, rules and limits we all have to follow every day of our lives. Why does Hallmark and others always try going beyond boundaries that should never be crossed. God give us his word the Bible to follow in our lives so as not to fall into ‘lawlessness’ like it is now with Hallmark and others. It should not be ‘ whatever you want to do, whatever feels good’ with no concept of consequences in life and world that’s why God gave us a Bible to follow otherwise it’s chaos. Homosexuality, lesbianism in movies and shows of any kind is wrong and push it anyways on people. Shouldn’t they care about the people that don’t want to see it also. To be fair there should be just as many shows about Jesus and about the Bible with male and female not same sex!
