Workaholic FBI agent Jake Cunningham fears his case against investment fraudster Scott Shift may not stick without the testimony of cocktail waitress Brandi O'Neill, who naively believed to be more then Scott's latest throwaway flirt. Jake is tricked by his ma to spend Christmas with his 'badly ill' dad, judge Joe Cunningham. Jake never visited his family in years, so he passes off Brandi as his steady date. She insists to stay, and like ma enjoys the posh - working class seasonal culture clash.

A Christmas movie that first aired on TV, FBI agent Jake Cunningham (Shawn Christian) is assigned to protect cocktail waitress Brandi O'Neill (Jami Gertz) after she turns in her billionaire boyfriend for tax fraud. Jake is called home during the Christmas season and hides Jami in his family's house, posing as a couple.
This is one of those feel-good Christmas movies, this time trying to mix in a little crime drama in it. However, it didn't work very well as I've found the story to be boring and uninteresting. I don't remember seeing anything very suspenseful or intriguing about the slow-moving plot - it's mostly about the attempted romance angle between Jake and Brandi, which I've found mildly entertaining at best.
There are plenty of meaningful, heartfelt and captivating Christmas made-for-TV movies out there. Look over this one.
