Storyline

Starring Amy Smart (Just Friends, The Butterfly Effect) and Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Franklin & Bash, Saved by the Bell, NYPD Blue), 12 Dates of Christmas is a romantic comedy that follows Kate (Amy Smart), a young woman who re-lives the same first date on Christmas Eve over and over again. In an attempt to win back her ex-boyfriend on Christmas Eve, Kate ends up ruining her blind date with Miles (Mark-Paul Gosselaar), a handsome guy she's been set up with. In a strange twist of fate, Kate is given the chance to re-live Christmas Eve twelve times! Kate decides to embrace what Christmas Eve has given her -- a loving family, great friends and Miles, who turns out to be a great guy! However, just as she seems to think she has gotten it right, the clock strikes midnight and Kate must live Christmas Eve once again. Under these weird new circumstances, Kate learns to take risks and enjoy what she's been given. Thanks to the gift of Christmas Eve, Kate finds happiness by finally trusting fate.

Back when ABC Family became the FreeForm disaster
19 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was put out by ABC Family before it became the disaster of FreeForm and its crap programming. The story is a Groundhog Day copy of a sorts. However, it is very funny and touching. There are few different twists on it that help differentiate the movie from Groundhog Day. Amy Smart and Laura Miyata are EXTREMELY easy on the eye. Mark-Paul Gosselaar has come a long way from his Saved By the Bells days. All of the characters are fun to watch. This movie needs to be released on DVD. Thankfully, I captured it on DVR when it was shown, but a DVD would be a whole lot better. Overall, it is a good, family friendly Christmas movie without any Hollywood liberal agendas in it.
