Wendy Walton is the best designer in Boston... but no one knows it yet. Hoping to kick-start her career, Wendy has left work with the local theatre to take a job as an assistant to Priscilla Hall, the most prestigious designer in the city. Ms. Hall works Wendy around the clock, which is how Wendy finds herself trapped in an elevator late one night with an incredibly handsome stranger. Wendy and the mystery man share an impulsive, romantic, life-changing kiss before the doors open and Wendy runs out, leaving him behind.

The theatre where they have the Nutcracker play is the Carpenter Theatre in Richmond, Virginia which you can clearly see stated on the front of the theatre, only they have not turned on the lights to light that section, because throughout the movie we are supposed to be in Boston. There are clearly other signs we are not in Boston - like the skyline, the ride by the civil war memorial in the park when they take the carriage ride and the lack of the typical Boston scenes. They could have used at least used some stock footage of Boston. There wasn't a single winter scene for a Christmas movie in Boston, Massachusetts it would be rare not to be at least cold in late November to late December See more »
In the beginning, Priscilla establishes herself as a selfishly inconsiderate and controlling woman, making demands on Wendy's time at all hours via her cell phone, but when she leaves town again, Wendy isn't phoned even once. See more »
It is the type of kiss that, years from now when I am suffering from dementia and drooling in my jell-o - I will be thinking about that kiss.

"A Christmas Kiss" is a holiday variation on the worst kind of chick flicks. It should never, could never, will never become a holiday classic, and deservedly so. BTW, let me just state up front I am a woman who normally loves chick flicks. In this case, however... Yuck.
The story is trite & predictable, with plot "twists" you can see coming a mile off, and characters as clichéd as some starry-eyed teen would dream up: unlucky-in-love aspiring career girl; her boss, a manipulative, social-climbing, lying, witch-with-a-B; & the sweet, clueless, gazillionaire hunk - who should have 'DOORMAT' tattooed on his forehead, btw - they both want.
Since it has the emotional depth of tissue paper, the acting skills of the attractive cast have limited opportunity for display and can therefore only be called competent at best; in some moments, they're downright cringe-worthy. Although, admittedly, that may be due to the gawd-awful script.
All of which is sad, but to me the worst part was the 2 hours I wasted thinking it would get better; had to get better; would have an emotional payoff that justified making it.
Nope. It just sort of stops, and exactly the way you knew it would after seeing the first 10 minutes. So if you come across this one, do yourself a favor: keep going!
