I didn't think I was going to like this sequel since I was so down on the first one, but I was pleasantly surprised.
The story is quite original. It is still a bit preachy about faith and hope and trust, but the extremes of "Once Upon a Christmas" are toned down quite a bit.
The acting is better, although it still isn't real good. I reckon most of that to the fact that this movie appears to be aimed more at children. That means that the bad guys play a little meaner and the good guys a little more sweet and pure.
Kathy Ireland is undoubtedly a beautiful woman who can appear almost angelic, but she just tries to hard and it shows. Every line seems like she is trying too hard to sell what she is saying. The kids are good again. John Dye is better as the dad and boyfriend.
Some of the humor comes through better because it is less exaggerated.
Much of what I have found lacking is probably just what a kid audience needs, so I expect kids will enjoy far more than I did.
