After challenging their rivals to a sing-off on Christmas Eve, Holly finds herself on a journey to the real meaning of Christmas with some new friends and a new love thrown in for good measure.

A Missile of a Movie on Target to be One of the Best Christmas Movies
26 January 2017 | by geheweSee all my reviews

This is the 3rd consecutive year we've watched the Mistle-Tones. It just gets better. Out of all the movies, this is the one my young adult sons request (and they don't like musicals). The Christmas singing is all done by the cast and it is great- especially since that is not their specialty. Tia Mowry is just precious in the lead as Holly. The whole movie is just delightful with lots of humor. It is well done. It is creative. They got the small things right. For instance, how the group finds out Holly named the group "The Mistle-Tones". One of the group members comes back and says "you named us the Mistle-Tones terrible" Another says "it's not bad", another "I like it" and the original guy changes his mind and likes it too. Love the "Burning Love" number. Tori Spelling was excellent in the role- they all were.
