Ughhhh!
12 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm sorry David Hasselhoff cannot sing & he can NOT act! This is possibly one of the worst movies I've ever seen. To be fair Hasselhoff was not the only one bad acting. The script was bad & the acting was bad & totally the wrong actors playing the parts. Epic fail! For any Christmas movie I watch I have high expectations but this movie didn't make me want Christmas at all. If I remember right (it's been a long time since I watched it)Hasselhoff was a pretty good actor back in the Knight Rider days. he now needs to retire. Caroline Rhea I usually like but she bombed badly here. Come on Lifetime, you can do much better than this.
