Should be good but isn't
30 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love Christmas movies of all kinds, and this looks like it should be a winner; but the dialog is so stilted, and the acting, directing, and editing are so bad that it's really disappointing. Despite having all the requisite ingredients, it is very very poorly done. The only saving grace is the costumes, which are wonderful, and very evocative of the period (the '40's). But everything else is so bad that it overshadows the one good thing.

The plot might be fine in other hands, but in this production it is almost completely obliterated by poor directing, performances, and editing.

I would love to at least LIKE this, but it was just really poorly done!
