Not as bad as I thought
20 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

True movie was a slight ripoff of a tremendous Bill Murray flick, but you've got to admit, Diane (played by Kara Woods) is a definite cuttie. Has anyone seen her in any other films our TV shows out there? She was the lone bright spot in an otherwise lame movie.

Everyone has had a crappy Christmas at some point of time in their past, and after seeing this movie I've come to realize that it's never as bad as you think. Besides the lame storyline, and mediocre acting, it manages to sum up how bad some Christmas's, and then again how heartwarming, they can be. Thank god they found Kara Woods to play Diane, without her this wouldn't have even made video stores but gone straight to UPN.
