A new addition to my annual list of favorites!
16 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is for you if you like pure romantic fluff in a Christmas setting. I personally love these type of movies so I loved this one. It's complete escapism for me but I'm also a romantic at heart. This one will definitely go in to my annual rotation and, if it does come out on video, I'll be purchasing it.

With these type of movies, the romantic leads don't always have chemistry but Brooke Burns and Warren Christie have boatloads of it. Of course, it doesn't hurt that Warren is one of the best looking men I've seen in a while :) The story is cute and uncomplicated - The Uncle of an impossibly beautiful single mom (Jen) shares a flight with an impossibly beautiful guy (Morgan) in his 30's who can't seem to settle down in one place (read: very full Passport). Several snow storms and canceled flights later, the Uncle convinces his niece to allow the "stranger" to stay with them "for just one night" until the airport re-opens. One night turns in to 2, etc, due to some finagling by the uncle who is convinced that Morgan is good for his niece. He is considerate, kind, helpful with household chores, and is wonderful with her son. He really helps Jen to find the "Christmas Spirit" so to speak. Not helping matters is that Jen has a boyfriend who is a self-centered jerk complete with $800 shoes and completely stuck-up parents. He is awful with her son and is responsible for the plot point that eventually drives Morgan and Jen together.

Yes, it's predictable. Yes, it's "fluffy". But, in all reality, that's what makes it an enjoyable movie for me. I love romance movies anyway and I really love those that are set during Christmas. If you feel the same way, and aren't looking for anything more out of it, you will love this movie.
