I love Christmas, and I shed any Grinchy critical spirit if mistletoe and snow are involved. My ratings are 10 Stars, Excellent; 9 Stars, Almost Perfect; 8 Stars, Good; 7 Stars, Above Average Hallmark Quality; 6 Stars, Average Hallmark Quality; 5 Stars, Simply Okay; 4 Stars, Wouldn't Re-watch Unless Desperate for Christmas; 3 Stars, Never Going to be Desperate Enough to Re-watch; 2 Stars, Repugnant; and 1 Star, Bad Santa Bad. My ratings are based on how well the film captures the spirit of Christmas and has less to do with cinematic values or acting qualities.
