Movie star Olivia O'Hara looks like she will have a bittersweet Christmas. The third movie in a successful superhero franchise in which she stars will be released on Christmas Day, but she wants to return to what she trained for, namely the classics and more taxing dramatic fare. But what she is most concerned about this Christmas season is avoiding reporters and the paparazzi who only seem interested in her public humiliation surrounding the breakup with her rock star now ex-fiancé, Ryan Wrangler, who broke up with her via text. She can admit in hindsight that their relationship was heading in the direction of a split in Ryan now seeming more concerned about his fame than about her. To avoid the publicity, for the first time since she became famous, Liv heads home to small town Happy Valley, Colorado unannounced to spend Christmas with her family.

A bit dull
25 December 2020 | by John74YorkSee all my reviews

I was looking forward to this Lifetime Christmas movie as it stars Tori Anderson, who I enjoyed watching on Blindspot. I have not seen her since. She was pretty good. But the story was rather dull. Don't get me wrong, there were some nice Christmas messages in the movie, but I often found myself disengaging with the movie, the story. It just did not have that X factor that some of the other Christmas movies I have seen have had, unfortunately. It's not bad, but it is not great either. It is a family friendly movie.
