Not an attention-getter, but not a complete waste of time either.
14 December 2009 | by (Collingswood, NJ) – See all my reviews

OK, I kind of agree with TCMjunkie. But, I'd rate it a little higher. Lea Thompson can be engaging and definitely has not had the best career success. This movie isn't going to reverse that trend. Ms. Thompson cavorts around pixie-like and aside from the beginning lament, never demonstrates that she could become any different than the person she was destined to be; so this is where the story suffers the most. But these same characterizations help you bond with Ms. Thompson and her predicaments, ala George Bailey. The actors are all cliché'd here, in much the same way, and there are plot points and character holes that never get resolved. But if you take it all "on the cuff" and assume a happy outcome for all, you'll never miss those things. Picture this as a "It's a Wonderful Life" remake and twisted slightly.

You could do a lot worse than watching this Holiday Movie, say, while making cookies, or wrapping presents. It's sappy, but what Xmas movie isn't?
