Fonz plays match-maker
22 November 2009 | by (Redondo Beach, CA) – See all my reviews

It's another rom-com meets Christmas themed movie. If you wondered whatever happened to Fonz, he's a veteran New York cop or something. As late December approaches, he travels to visit his only living relatives, a niece and her son who live in Chicago. Now, hold your breath: through some incomprehensible turn of events starting with almost missing his flight to Chicago, his niece (a single mom of course) agrees to let this stranger (a square jawed guy with 3 days' stubble) stay at her house.

OK: Uncle Fonz. Single Mom. Square-jawed guy with 3 days' stubble. Kid. One more element needed: the obnoxious uppity business minded wrong-guy-for-her dude who's always talking on a cell phone. Antagonist cliché in place; here we go.

Give the cast credit: they take this jumbled premise and make a story out of it. Uncle Fonz and the beard stubble guy provide most of the jokes. Several gags do work: the sound effects for Kris Kringle's visit scene was actually pretty funny. The romantic tension between the triangle members has its moments. Since it's a rom-com, the public address system bit (like the whole movie) has to be taken with a grain of salt, or you'll roll your eyes so hard they'll hurt.

Will the guy she's known for two days win the girl over a jerk? Who can possibly guess?
