Melanie finds herself spending more time with Justin's best friend and loyal assistant, Dean (Adam Mayfield), who just might be harboring a secret crush on her. When complications arise that throw Melanie and Dean together over the holiday, will the two realize they're meant to be? Written by www.hallmarkchannel.com

Trivia

In one scene of the film, John Ratzenberger's character George Graves mentions to Melanie, Dean, and Chris that he is having pork chops for dinner. This is likely an amusing nod to Ratzenberger's role as the voice of Hamm the piggy bank in the "Toy Story" films. See more »

Disappointed because of loud music in background while the actors spoke
18 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was eagerly looking forward to an evening with Hallmark. The movie "Matchmaker Santa" started out magical. The actors were well chosen and the storyline imaginative and fun.

As I continued to watch the movie, I noticed that the music in the background was louder than the speaking voices. After one-half hour into the movie the music did not stop. It was like listening to a movie and a concert at the same time. You could not hear every word clearly and you had to strain to hear each word, and I have excellent hearing. I call it the ping-pong Hallmark music. It is as if a record is playing the same music for two hours over and over with high and low notes. There should be no music when the actors speak, unless it is for an endearing apex moment. The music in the background was continuous throughout the entire movie, ruining the movie for me.

So, disappointed as I was, I turned the channel and did not view the entire movie. I rated it "awful" because it was awful to watch.
