Mackenzie Foy and Tom Selleck

"Jesse Stone: Lost in Paradise" review by Suzanne 10/12/15
Premieres Sunday, October 18 at 9/8c on Hallmark

If you liked the previous Jesse Stone movies, you'll probably like this one.  You know what to expect. It's all about Tom Selleck's Jesse Stone.  The drama movies slowly, and there are cute dogs.  This one, though, is tinged with sadness because Jesse's dog has passed away, and he's drinking a lot. As the title says, Jesse is lost. He gets involved in an unsolved murder of a hooker in Boston. I guess small town life is not interesting enough for him.

The cast is great. Luke Perry plays a serial killer who's in jail; he and Selleck do some verball sparring. William DeVane plays Jesse's therapist.  Gloria Reuben is a good friend. Leslie Hope is a Boston detective. Young actress Mackenzie Foy plays a teen that Jesse takes an interest in.

The Jesse Stone movies are based on Robert Parker's novels; he writes with a certain tone, and his characters speak a certain way. That does take some getting used to.  If you like a good detective story, and you don't mind a slow pace, you should check out this movie.

Incidentally, CBS used to show these movies, but they decided that they want to cater to a younger crowd, and I guess it's mostly people over 40 who watch these movies. That's a shame. I hope it's a big hit on "Hallmark." I did enjoy the movie as I have all of these Jesse Stone movies.
