Holly, blessed with an amazing singing voice, is all set to audition for the newly vacated spot in a legendary local Christmas group which was founded by her late mother years ago. Shocked and upset when the slot goes to the barely talented best friend of the group's leader, Marci, Holly sets out to create her own musical group, The Mistle-Tones. After challenging their rivals to a sing-off on Christmas Eve, Holly finds herself on a journey to the real meaning of Christmas with some new friends and a new love thrown in for good measure.

Two thumbs up - Sort of
25 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tia is great in this. The story line is "cute". The music is wonderful. Would buy the soundtrack, if I could find it. The "relationship" between Holly and Nick is believable. They have great chemistry. And that works. It is a little funny, that there are so many people with costumes, and choreography, who want to sing at a mall on Christmas Eve. They just happened to have sequin clothes at home, waiting for a chance to sing somewhere? LOL The thumbs down part? Tori Spelling. The girl cannot act. And, it's obvious that SHE isn't actually singing. It would have been much better, with someone else in that part. If you can get past that, you will love the movie.
