My Dad's Christmas Date
- 1h 31m
In many ways, David and Jules Evans relationship is no different from that of most fathers and sixteen-year-old daughters. He struggles to understand her, she refuses to communicate with him. He wants to be involved in her life, she wants her own space. In one important aspect, however, David and Jules are separated from the rest of society: the death of Jules' mum, and David's wife, in a car crash two years previous. With both struggling to cope with the rigors of daily life in the wake of this devastating loss, Jules decides to take matters into her own hands. Creating profiles for David on multiple online dating platforms, Jules sets out to find her dad a partner and, for herself, someone with whom she can talk. The question is, in the search for a new mum, will Jules find her old dad?
I've sat through many of the other Christmas offerings and didn't enjoy them half so much and they were rated far higher than this one. I enjoyed the film and really liked Jeremy Piven's character - it was believable and sometimes very funny. i couldn't quite connect with Joely Richardson in the film as the accent seemed very forced but I suppose it had to be understood by all so it was never going to be accurate. I loved the York market scenes that were authentic and charming. Although it is set during the festive season it is not quite a crimbo rom com but very watchable. Give it a go.
