This is a list of family-friendly Hallmark movies, with clean language (as in, nothing worse than euphemisms, if that). Content besides language isn't evaluated quite as strictly (for instance, some of the mysteries tend to rank higher on violence/murder than the romances; some might mention coffee, tea, or alcoholic beverages; some having kissing; some have dresses that show shoulders; stuff like that). I plan to expand these lists with new items periodically. While I hesitate to provide a full list of specific language that I check against (that would be long and unpleasant to read/write), note that my process is much more strict than the process used to approve rated G and PG movies (for language), especially with regard to religious foul language.

Many (not all) of these are available with a subscription to hmnow.com.
