Disregard History and Common Sense and Enjoy the Scenery
25 November 2019 | by bojojoti-971-130131See all my reviews

My daughter and I decided to watch the movie together although we're miles apart. We synced our Netflix and began.

Daughter: LOL, this is so dweeby.

Mom: Like a thirteen-year-old wrote it. But the scenery is pretty.

Daughter: She's a teacher, and she has a guest house?

Mom: Everyone is wealthy in Christmas movies.

Mom: Ah, the old slip, fall, and catch. Now we just need the interrupted kiss and a snowball fight to complete a Christmas movie.

Daughter: I hit you with my car, and you're definitely crazy. Come stay with me!

Mom: Like a person in the 1300s who depended on hunting to eat would try to hunt a skunk! Stupid.

Mom: He's reading a menu printed in modern English! I can barely read documents from the 1700s.

Daughter: GROAN

Mom: DOUBLE GROAN (I have no idea what this was in reference to, but there were many such moments)

Daughter: That's the most accurate thing I've ever seen. Give a complete stranger with no driver's license who doesn't know how to drive the keys to your car.

Mom: Oh, the poor little girl living in a multi-million dollar housing development has no mittens.

Mom: Aha! Finally, the interrupted kiss.

Mom: What did the red light with the old crone mean at the end?

Daughter: I have no idea. For a sequel? LOL LOL

Mom: LOL Imagine a sequel to this.

Daughter: Well, sorry Mom. You pick the next one.

Mom: Hey, I'd rather have absurdly silly than boring, and this was very, very silly. The leads were cute. Too bad they didn't have good scripts to work with. Or any research at all.
