Got tricked again :(
25 August 2014 | by minerva-88-89480See all my reviews

OMG! I fell for Dolly Parton again. I mean, I saw her at the tag line, therefore I had to watch it. But like my fellow speakers so nicely pointed out, where is Christmas? If only in the title! What about Country? I actually expected a bit more country music due to the title and, öhm, Dolly Parton. My bad.

It's basically a talent show turned into a movie. I don't like talent shows. Can somebody tell me, why a season film has to be particularly cheesy??? Is there a rule for that?

On the plus side, I really like those subtle morality messages. They were decent. But in consideration of those said messages, I have the feeling this flick is made for kids and teens....?

Dang you, Ms Parton, I am such a sucker for your appearances and music ;D Damn me.

And would somebody give her that well desevered Oscar, already!!! What does it take to do so?! I'd carve her one meself it that helps the process?!
