Storyline

Lucky Christmas is the story of Holly Ceroni, a single mom trying to get back on her feet, but who is crushed to learn her winning lottery ticket is in the glove compartment of her recently stolen car. Mike Ronowski, the construction worker behind Holly's missing property, goes along with a master plan to befriend Holly and coerce her into giving him half of her winnings. Mike unexpectedly falls in love with Holly and learns there are more important things in life than quick money in time for the holidays. Written by Smash Media

Hallmark romance film that actually has a more realistic depiction of contemporary class anxieties!
18 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What I like about this film is that it foregrounds class issues, two people who don't have much money, yet one holds a lottery ticket that belongs to the other. And, thus, it becomes this nice allegory of how we should share wealth among poor folks. No one person should possess such a "ticket to ride." And, by the way, I am annoyed by the previous reviewer who is trying to compare a Hallmark produced film to Rene Clair's 1931 film "Le Million." Of course, the lottery tale is a cliché, it's one of the greatest clichés in all of cinema (the Cinderella tale is an equivalent). Yet, this film's Hallmark cliché worked for me (after a day of house cleaning, mind you): a mise-en-scene of old cars, cramped living quarters, and manly construction sites. And, people wanting to find each other through/in isolation. Too bad there's not a ticket for all of us.
