Trivia

The brief shot of the locomotive coming into the station is not a North American scene. The station is Hampton Lode on the Severn Valley Railway, Shropshire, England. The locomotive is a GWR pannier tank No 7714 built in 1930 and looks very different to the more authentic static one in the following scene. See more »

When Christina Milian gets up after lying on her back in the snow, the back of her police blouse is dry, clean and uncreased. See more »

The Snowglobe Alternative Universe Continues!
15 December 2013 | by story_by_coreySee all my reviews

Apparently, the snow globe-alternate-universe-Christmas movie genera is here to stay. Unfortunately, this one is not as good as the 2007, one-word Snowglobe version.

In this edition, Meg (Alicia Witt) thinks the shows she produces misleads people into thinking dreams really can come true. After bonking herself on the head with a snow globe, she ends up in it's perfect snow-covered town. She never quite fits into this universe though everyone in town tries to accept her. It all starts to unravel when her negative attitudes impacts the town folks. Just as she starts to realize she likes her snow globe universe better than her real one, she returns to reality with another bonk on the head.

While there is a nice, semi-predictable twist at the end of this movie, its your basic Lifetime Channel Christmas movie fare that you will forget minutes after the movie is over.
