Awful
19 December 2012 | by groucho1970See all my reviews

I enjoyed the original film, so after a glut of stereotypical Hallmark TV Christmas films thought I'd treat my better half to an afternoon at the cinema.

Big Big mistake, this has to be the worst film I've ever wasted money on, If anybody employs Marc Wooton in the future they are either certifiable or are trying a producer style filming a flop scam.

I would love to say its so bad its good but its just awful.

It made me long for Sky's Christmas 24 channel, " a grandpa for Christmas" is a masterpiece compared to this tripe

As a touch of trivia Martin Freeman got the role of Watson in "Sherlock" beating Matt Smith who went on to play "Dr Who" who replaced "David Tennant, who replaced Martin Freeman in this. Tennant got the worst of the deal.
