Storyline

It's a few days before Christmas. As they have always done, widowed schoolteacher Tom Pullman, his 13-year-old daughter Hilly, and their dog Toby are driving from their Chicago home to Vail, Colorado to spend Christmas with Tom's mother Rheudel. Hilly loves her grandmother, but she wishes for a more exciting Christmas, and she would rather fly than drive in Tom's aged pickup truck, which may not last this trip. But her father finds taking the back roads and enjoying the countryside to be part of the adventure. Meanwhile, Chicago-based fashion photographer Claire Jamison, a pampered city girl, has one more assignment, after which she will fly to Aspen to join her Italian fiancé Lorenzo at his chalet where they will get married on Christmas Eve. Although they have known each other for some time, the romance, engagement, and wedding are recent phenomena, and Lorenzo is handling the bulk of the wedding plans with the help of his personal assistant Michele. Almost everyone Claire tells ... Written by Huggo

Goofs

The characters are on a road trip across the northern states, particularly Colorado. While driving along a single-lane country road, the viewer sees a road sign indicating MAXIMUM 60. This is unrealistic in the U.S. where the speed limit is expressed in mile/hour. This is a Canadian road with speed expressed in kilometres/hour, with 60 km/hr equivalent to about 36 mph. See more »

A fun lighthearted smile
23 December 2007 | by jwindwalkerSee all my reviews

Without stooping to the campy.. this movie was relaxing, funny, touching and leaves you with a warm fuzzy. Sort of like The Goodbye Girl. Though you know where it's headed, and there's no big surprises along the way it's rather nice to watch a couple hours of movie with no killing, crashes, hatred or violence.

What's more it's not a remake of some other Christmas movie like the 400 incarnations of It's a Wonderful life, or A Christmas Carol, so highly recommend it for absolutely anyone who wants to just chill by the fireplace and feel Christmasy... think we'll watch it again tomorrow when my Mom visits...
