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

Surprisingly good
18 December 2006 | by (Georgia, United States) – See all my reviews

Let's face facts...the Lifetime Network isn't known for the best drama's on television, but every once in a while they will put out something that is palatable to watch. The Road to Christmas was just such a film. I Tivoed it on a whim and found myself skipping through only the commercials. The rest actually held my interest. The chemistry between the two leads was good, the storyline not too unrealistic, and the comedic elements weren't heavy handed or doled out at the cost of the characters. Claire came off as a city girl but not bitchy (as many of these city girl meets country boy stories tend to do). Her sensitivity and likability as a character had you rooting for her to find a happy ending. And other than one semi-sappy moment which was scripted to state the obvious, I found this film to be a refreshing change from the heavily played melodrama's that seem to plague this channel.
