Bad B-rate Made for TV Cheese Movie
13 December 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It doesn't get much worse than this. Bad acting, really bad. Bad direction and editing, really bad. A tired plot that feels contrived and devoid of any Christmas magic (ironically). The cast lacks chemistry. They looked like actors forced to make a Christmas movie together and weren't given much direction. A side note to the filmmakers, if you're going to use a blue screen, at least make sure the lighting makes it look somewhat realistic. I gave it 2 stars rather than 1 because I'm sure some young children could still enjoy it (if they don't fall asleep from it's slow and unnecessarily long pace). If you've seen ALL the other Christmas specials and are really craving for something more, then - and only then - can you put this movie on (to fall asleep to). I couldn't watch it in one sitting. And if the ending doesn't make you cringe and regret the time you spent watching it, the bad singing and lip syncing of songs will. Merry Christmas!
