Romance with a little surprise
21 December 2014 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Really nice and unpretentious Christmas romance. No convoluted "problems" with the love interests, for a change.

I like the fact that they made a movie that's just cheerful fun. It's a made-for-TV movie, and as such the little niggles like sunny dawns in wintery Alaska, snow that's not entirely convincing here&there (but thankfully none of that horrible "foam snow" they often use) didn't bother me to much.

The actors are adequate, but sometimes too sitcom-ish. Though, it has to be said that theater veteran Kendra Mylnechuk as the busy, joyous nurse Billie really jumps out.

The Utah locations are nice, but to me don't look a whole lot like Alaska. Still, as a background it was good enough for me.

It's just, basically, a movie with a wholesome, upbeat and positive vibe. Fitting for Christmas.
