Fun and refreshing. A unique twist to Christmas movies.
14 November 2019 | by landfatherSee all my reviews

I love this movie. I love it because it's different from all the other Christmas movies. Every Christmas movie you see these days is about how a jaded business executive travels to a town in the mountains to buy it out to make it a giant ski resort, with no regards for the townsfolk of said town. He/she bumps into someone who's got more Christmas spirit than my mother (which is impossible), and he/she makes the jaded exec see the error of his/her ways, and in the end saves the town from his/her evil company and gets the girl/guy. I just spoiled every Christmas movie out there, except for this one. So grab a cup of hot chocolate (put whipped cream on it for Pete's sake) sit back and enjoy this movie. It's fun, entertaining, and you'll find yourself saying "Hey, I know who that actor is!" more than once. Enjoy and Merry Christmas.
