Storyline

It's a few days before Christmas. As they have always done, widowed schoolteacher Tom Pullman, his thirteen year old daughter Hilly Pullman and their pet dog Toby are driving from their home in Chicago to Vail to spend Christmas with his mother, Rheudel Pullman. Although loving her grandmother, Hilly would rather have a more exciting Christmas than spending it in the country. She would also prefer to fly than to drive in Tom's aged pickup truck, which is not guaranteed to last the trip. Tom, on the other hand, finds taking the back roads seeing the countryside as part of the adventure. Meanwhile, Chicago-based fashion photographer Claire Jamison, a pampered city girl, has one more assignment, after which she will fly to Aspen to join her Italian fiancé Lorenzo at his chalet where they will get married on Christmas Eve. Although they have known each other for some time, the romance, engagement and wedding are recent phenomena, Lorenzo who is handling the bulk of the wedding plans with ... Written by Huggo

Meh.
29 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Even for a Lifetime movie, I didn't really enjoy this one. Jennifer Grey played a high-maintenance celebrity photographer, who tries making it in time to her Christmas Eve wedding in Aspen. Plans go awry when she can't catch a holiday flight. After many mishaps, she finds a ride with Clark Gregg and his teenage daughter in their old, rusty pickup truck.

I found Gregg's acting to be quite lacking. The arguments between Grey and Gregg were very poorly acted by Gregg. Their arguing was supposed to be sexual tension, but it seemed that Gregg despised Grey's high maintenance so much that he put a sour taste in my mouth. So what if she tries ordering a latte at a dive diner? He didn't have to condescend her for it. I did enjoy the performances by Grey and Megan Park, though. They made the movie semi-enjoyable. I do wish there was snow in this Christmas Movie. Snow would have been nice.
