Dollywood 's Got Talent
14 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What is a Christmas movie? That is a question I kept asking myself as I watched this movie. Most of the Lifetime Christmas movie plots center around the spirit of Christmas opening the heart of some long-lost curmudgeon, characters discovering the true meaning of Christmas or the story of somebody overcoming obstacles to get home for the holidays. This movie has none of those elements. In fact, you don't even see a Christmas tree until 1.5 hour into the movie. The movie felt like one of those personal interest clips they play just before some unknown talent goes on a reality show like America's Got Talent. The last 30 minutes of the movie feels like a long ad for Dollywood. The story is a formula Lifetime relationship movie where the characters resolve their irreconcilable differences in the last 10 minutes of the movie and live happily ever after.

Worth watching when there is nothing else recorded on your DVR just to hear Desiree Ross' great voice or if you are a Dolly Parton fan. Otherwise, watch your other Christmas movies first!
