The dullest Christmas I have seen,
16 November 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I just seen this on the Channel called Christmas 24, which aired in UK around about this time of year,

The over the past week, I Saw bits of it, today, I sat to watch this movie.

This as got to be one of the most weakest Christmas movies, i have seen, It did sound good, I thought I love to watch town love Christmas.

The whole movie was very boring, the movie didn't really have much going for it.

The acting was really bad and the person who played was god awful

The ending way to predicable and rushed the last part of the movie
