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 »

Same ol', same ol'
2 June 2014 | by ZooomaSee all my reviews

Meh. Another run-of-the-mill Made-for-TV Christmas movie that has no special charm yet isn't pure trash either. Lacey Chabert (Party of Five and the original Meg on Family Guy) is nice enough to watch. Florence Henderson (Mrs. Brady) adds a nice touch. But overall this does nothing for me. It's a romance, a chick flick, a Christmas movie chick flick and the Hallmark Channel is quite adept at making these. Plus they have a disease of adding too much musical score that's too loud -- they don't rely on strength of dialogue, they cheese it up which is most unfortunate. Not that this is all that strong but they oughta give movies a shot instead of masking them with unnecessary background music.

5.6 / 10 stars
