Cute if weird holiday romance
15 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

Rebecca is a Wall Street big shot who arranged a big merger involving her firm--and worked herself out of a job. No problem. She's so good at her job she can get a new one just like that. Except no one wants to interview her until after the holidays. Seriously? Christmas has no practical purpose.

Rebecca's best friend Allison from back home in Santa Mira, California calls, wondering if Rebecca will attend Allison's Christmas Eve wedding. Okay, she has nothing else to do. Rebecca goes home but isn't looking forward to being with her mother Shirley. They don't get along, and Rebecca lost her father some years ago and wasn't really there for her mother.

A mysterious cab driver, well played by George Wendt (who has several roles), gives Rebecca a magical Christmas ornament. Rebecca tries to spend time with her mother, but Shirley has to run her diner. People with no place to go at the holidays need her. Shirley is not the problem in the relationship. Rebecca is.

Rebecca goes to the wedding but is annoyed on the way there by a "girl scout" selling cookies and a man trying to get people to go skating. At the wedding, bridesmaid Jennifer has lost weight and enhanced her chest. Maid of honor Molly is still blonde, gorgeous and nasty. The best man forgot the ring. Tyler is an usher and a jerk. Rebecca's ex Chad, another usher, was the football star and is now a chef, but can he and Rebecca restart their relationship? Supposedly he cheated with Molly.

The day is a disaster for Rebecca, and all she wants to do is get on a plane Christmas Day and go back home. But when she wakes up the next day, it is Christmas Eve--again. Rebecca knows what will happen but can't take advantage. That's okay. It happens again. And again. How many times can it happen? Will Rebecca learn to straighten out her life? One way to take advantage is to do frivolous and even risky activities, knowing they will not have lasting consequences.

Marla Solokoff is so good here. The character is pleasant enough most of the time, but eventually she is really nice. But I liked her best when she was having a good time, knowing she would not gain weight or have to pay for huge purchases on her (former) company's credit card, or spend time in jail. Her efforts to improve herself and get her man are really enjoyable.

Chris Carmack is good enough, and he even sings, but not well enough for me to believe he will be a big country star.

Catherine Hicks does a great job as Rebecca's mom.

There is plenty of good Christmas music, but also a lot of what I consider junk.

This is no masterpiece but it is a pleasant and even funny fantasy for the holidays.
