Storyline

Holly, blessed with an amazing singing voice, is all set to audition for the newly vacated spot in a legendary local Christmas group which was founded by her late mother years ago. Shocked and upset when the slot goes to the barely talented best friend of the group's leader, Marci, Holly sets out to create her own musical group, The Mistle-Tones. 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 Christmas Joy
20 September 2017 | by behappysmileSee all my reviews

During the Holiday Season there seems to be non stop 24/7 Christmas on every cable channel. Most of them are bland however "The Mistle- tones" is not a bland film. It is an excellent movie that proves "Christmas Movies Can Be Great". The "Mistle-Tones" is the best example I can think of that shows great films can be made about Christmas. It also nice to see a Christmas movie that is not a "Spin" on "A Christmas Carol" or "It's a Wonderful Life". This is not a rip off of "Freaky Friday" or "Groundhog Day". This is not about a poor widow about lose her home, or business. Its not about mending fences. All this is about is a singing contest.

The plot is simple. Holly gets cheated out winning a spot on the "Snow-belles". This is a local singing group the performs every year at the mall on Christmas Eve. Holly ends up getting the mall to hold auditions for the "Deck the Mall Spectacular" and now the "Snow- belles" have to compete with Holly's group that she just formed with fellow co-workers.

This all sounds like it would be "Stupid". Trust me I thought it would be. However I had the time of my life watching this. Iended up buying the CD on I-TUNES.

If you love Christmas & Christmas Music then watch this. Its a perfect night of entertainment for everyone.
