High-powered fashion photographer Claire Jameson finds herself stranded in middle America on the way to her dream Christmas-time wedding in Aspen. Unable to get another flight or rent a car, Claire is reduced to begging for a ride. When the rugged former artist turned teacher, Tom Pullman and his 13-year old daughter Hilly kindly offer to take her, none of them realize that their journey is just beginning, and it will leave all of them in a very different place than where they began.

The characters are on a road trip across the northern states, particularly Colorado. While driving along a single-lane country road, the viewer sees a road sign indicating MAXIMUM 60. This is unrealistic in the U.S. where the speed limit is expressed in mile/hour. This is a Canadian road with speed expressed in kilometres/hour, with 60 km/hr equivalent to about 36 mph. See more »
The Road to Christmas spoils realism in the name of empty dramatic devices. Jennifer Grey is fine, but sad to say the lead actor here shows about as much charm as a bent nail. The more Jennifer Grey seemed to like the leading man, the more sorry I felt for her.
The outdoor photography was appreciated. And the story concept, even if a bit familiar (50% PLAINS TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES, and 50% standard boy-meets-girl), could have been fun to watch if there was more simple realism and charm. I give this made-for-TV movie a 50% rating. There are many better made-for-TV romance movies than this one.
