Pleasant holiday offering
16 December 2007 | by (Tulsa OK) – See all my reviews

There may be SPOILERS following in the context of this site's parameters for same; however, I don't feel any of the following will spoil the story for new viewers, and most of these details become apparent before they occur; suspense is not an intended aspect here.

This is a pleasant holiday film, with a different "Christmas locale" than usually found. The location in Puerto Rico is pleasant, but it's hardly a travelogue, in view of the limited island scenery contained - much less than one would assume in reading the ads for the presentation.

The two leads are engaging and attractive, and the four children {in a sort-of reduced-in-number "Brady Bunch" (2 each vs, 3)} all are well-cast and provide believable performances and interactions among their characters. Even the flippant, acerbic older daughter doesn't portray this in an "over-the-top" manner, as would be expected in this type of "Lifetime" film - but plays her part realistically, and believably softens when appropriate within the plot.

The two single parents (she suddenly widowed, he having been deserted by a selfish, spoiled, affluent wife), thrown together with their charges charges, is a theme which has been done in a number of filmed variations, whether a holiday flick or not.

However, while this type of story, whether "Lifetime" or otherwise - and especially in the case of the former - usually has more contrivances than you can count, which often detract from the proceedings, I found this one to be a bit the opposite.

While the ending was happy (and wholly-expected), and there was an absence of heavy romance between the leads, interrupted by the "villainess ex-wife," weeping and wailing all concerned, with resolution in the last scene -- I wished for at least some more spark, as well as some more romantic interaction between the divorced father and the widowed mother.

These "Lifetime" flicks, and their genre - whether romantic like this one, or depicting characters menaced in some manner (usually a psychotic neighbor), have a tendency to have a climax which often comprises only a couple of minutes of the two hours. This is one where it would have been an improvement had it been longer.

Still, it was a pleasant offering, worth perhaps 6 or 7*, but provide 8, based upon engaging actors and performances.

Finally, an added positive facet is this seems to be the first "Lifetime" in memory shot in some place outside Canada.
