Not great but not terrible either
8 December 2015 | by (Birmingham, England) – See all my reviews

Catch a Christmas Star is an average Christmas TV Movie about a music star who meets her high school sweetheart years later.

It's a typically cheesy and predictable tale. Shannon Elizabeth isn't convincing as the music star Nikki and the lead male Steve Byers whilst suitably good looking is too wooden. To make matters worse there is little chemistry between them both which makes the story even less unlikely than it already is.

To be fair there are a few funny moments and these are all provided by the singers assistant Carmine played by Christopher Jacot. He is easily the star of this film. One plus was that unlike many of these type of movies, the kids in the film ( played by Julia Lalonde and Kyle Harrison Brietkopf are actually quite good and aren't either sickly sweet or just plain annoying.

There is nothing special about this film but it will have it's market and is moderately entertaining.
