Fun Holiday Fluff, 15 June 2010
Author: cynjendrejcak from Connecticut, USA

This falls right into line with every cheesy, over the top, Christmas romance I have ever seen- and I loved it.

It was lighthearted and fun and I giggled snorted through most of it. Gunn is absolutely adorkable, and Nathan is just SO snarktastic.

All kidding aside, there is a tremendous amount of love and affection in this movie, between the boys obviously, but also those around them. The cast of supporting players was interesting as well, lots of familiar faces.

This wasn't made to be any sort of serious social commentary, folks, it's holiday fluff and if you take it as such you'll giggle too, and enjoy it.
