....If You Like Season-Themed Romantic Comedies...
13 December 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

...And, I must admit, I do. Of course, there are few surprises in the plot. You know, as you start the movie, that the happy couple at the start of the movie is not the happy couple at the end of the movie, that the course of true love never runs smooth and so forth. So how do we get from point A to point B and is the trip worth it?

For me, this little TV movie is worth it, partly for the scenes of Brooke Burns coping in a brittle fashion with holiday stress -- negotiating for the hot Christmas gift on behalf of her son. dealing with manic Christmas-light neighbors or trying to figure out how to cook a turkey -- but mostly for Henry Winkler playing her goofy cop uncle from New York. Goofy humor is, all too often, the province of young actors. Older actors are all too often worried about their serious career and too embarrassed to play intellectually sloppy characters. Henry Winkler is still willing to take that risk and I am grateful for the chuckles. Watch this and you will likely be too.
