Storyline

As a little girl, Melanie Hogan (Lacey Chabert) wished to find her own Prince Charming, just like her parents found true love. Now an adult, Melanie is running her own bakery and dating a handsome CEO, Justin (Thad Luckinbill). Although things seem perfect when Justin asks Melanie to spend the holidays together at his beautiful lake house upstate, and meet his mother, Melanie finds herself spending more time with Justin's best friend and loyal assistant, Dean (Adam Mayfield), who just might be harboring a secret crush on her. When complications arise that throw Melanie and Dean together over the holiday, will the two realize they're meant to be? Written by www.hallmarkchannel.com

Goofs

While Melanie is talking to Santa just before takeoff, in one shot we can see what appears to be part of a jetway or some other structure outside of her window. The shot cuts to Santa then back to Melanie. This time, however, we can see a parked aircraft facing Melanie's window. See more »

Reliable Lacey just didn't do it for me in this one. This movie was made 8 years ago and Lacey Chabert hasn't changed a bit. And I'm not sure that's a good thing. Same hairdo, same lipstick, same signature eyeliner. honestly, couldn't she even wash her face before going to bed? If she ever wiped that eyeliner off, I don't think I'd recognize her. Same affected giggle. Would make a good drinking game. I didn't think she much chemistry with her co-star, and the plot was tired and dull. I did like her love interest on his own though. I'd like to see him pared up with someone else.
