A mysteriously spreading period of postcard winter conditions, complete with snow, over most of the northern hemisphere shortly before Christmas influences several otherwise unrelated lives. Most obviously, weather channel presenter Billy, a former studio boss, whose show now becomes news again, gets to know his prompter text writer Joey. Businessman Warren, a gifted lier who pretends to be stuck in airports to explain his delay on the way home to his gullible wife, is found out and dumped by his conquest in Baltimore. Young mother Pilar, who got a bad custody deal for her darling little boy Miguel, is unable to deliver him to dad because of the snow; he asks the judge for full custody as punishment, but... Young Luke, who recently moved out of home, learns most of his guests, including his bossy mother, who came to cook the Christmas dinner where he is house-sitting, are stuck in traffic, so he decides to cook the goose with weird ex-socialite aunt Lula, who then forces him to a ...

I don't know how anyone can give this movie a good review. It was terrible. Extremely cheesy, unrealistic, over-acted, embarrassing to watch. I love Poppy Montgomery, Jennifer Esposito (especially after "Crash")and the guy from CSI and I was so embarrassed for them that they were in this mess. It is about a freak snow storm that turns earth magical white Christmas . It shows about 6-7 different stories around the US that include a woman battling to keep custody of her son while the jerk of a father makes her life a living hell, a young man searching for the approval of his mother and estranged father - when his crazy aunt comes in early for their Christmas dinner to give him a new perspective, a young woman who is the maid of honor at her best friend's Christmas Eve wedding and the drama that ensues when it looks as if the wedding may be canceled due to weather not to mention the hidden feelings the young woman has for the groom-to-be, another woman who is trying to escape Christmas after her husband died last year at the same time, a conniving husband who is cheating on his wife while he tells her he is tied up at an airport, and finally the weather man who brings it all together during this once in a lifetime event. There was potential for this movie to be a cute yet somewhat cheesy hallmark type, and hey, since it is the holiday season I was fully prepared for that. But the movie was muddled by cheesy theme music, over done facial expressions and emotional outbursts. In the end some of the stories intertwine in a twist that's about as sneaky as an bull in a china shop. Sorry to be so harsh, but to me it seemed like this movie was 98% cheese and 2% absurd.
