A tired, worn out plot has nothing new or worthwhile
19 December 2018 | by SimonJackSee all my reviews

"A Holiday to Remember" is another film that follows a sub-genre of films about divorced or single moms with a child. After her divorce, Carolyn Giblin decides to pull up stakes with her daughter. They leave southern California for her hometown in North Carolina. Another sub-genre of these romantic films made for the holidays enters here. That's meeting an old flame from schoolhood days.

These films are all predictable, and the only thing that makes one stand out, or even be worth viewing, is any twist or unique aspect of the film to punch up the story and make it interesting. The plot for this one tries that with an orphaned kid who stows away in the basement of grandma's house. An expected love triangle emerges with another local woman who has eyes for Carolyn's former sweetheart. But none of that is able to raise this film.

The setting, scenery and direction earn it most of the five stars I give it. The acting is mostly fair, but the plot is lame with a script that follows suit. Only viewers who are hooked on sentimental fluff will find this film worthwhile.
