Storyline

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.

The Mistle-Glee-Tones
21 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As the name implies, The Mistle-tones is a story about the true meaning of Christmas as experienced through a group of people singing holiday tunes. And like the mistletoe, hearing a "mistle-tone" song causes spontaneous kissing among co-workers, the boss and apparently the HR department also.

Much of the movie feels like an episode of Glee and beyond a musical buildup to the mall sing-off, there is not much storyline. The movie really could have benefited from more back story about Holly's mom, her role in the Snowglobes and less scenes with Tori Spelling in it. But despite all that, its worth watching just to hear Tia Mowry's incredible voice and seeing the Mistle-tones perform.
