Goofs

While in the past, adult Kristin asks Jamie (18) to hack Maverick's account. Jamie makes a comment about running a keystroke program to recreate Maverick's password. Keystrokes are generally not recorded by any software or even the operating system unless it is specifically designed to do so. Keyloggers, as is eluded to, wouldn't be able to capture keystrokes from the past, only from the point that it is installed and activated. With an instant messenger, it's possible to have the password saved for future sign-ins, but using the feature would make it unnecessary to hack the account. See more »

Don't Pass Up Kristin's Christmas Past
29 December 2016 | by geheweSee all my reviews

Delightful story of a 34 year old woman going back to when she was a girl of 17. The lead actress is very good in this role. How at 34 one can see things like they couldn't at 17. This alone is worth the watch. We also get to see two of the characters at 34 and then at 17 (done with different actors). Nicely done. The filming could have been a bit better- in the opening scenes it was hard to hear the dialogue clearly.

I liked how they showed Kristin's family and the conflicts they were having. The contrast between 1996 and 2013 was also well done- smart phone versus AOL dial up internet. I don't rate them this high unless there was something special.
