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 »

Goofs

The wide shot of the train coming into the station in the snow is a pulled by a British steam locomotive. The closeup shots of the locomotive, with the driver in the cab, are of a completely different North American locomotive. See more »

A cynical TV exec looks at the perfect town inside a Christmas globe and rants about how the holiday movies she produces are as fake as the ornament. She throws it against the wall and it bounces back and knocks her out. But when she wakes up in a perfect snow-covered town, married to a local woodsman, she discovers it s not all just a fantasy.

The film is really a first class production. The story is a little bit of a retread of better films however its so well made you can't get mad. Alicia Witt seems to be in every other Christmas movie that gets made. It was also so sweet to see Donald Faison be romantic. This film is family safe. It so safe that if your single the film might even change your life. Watch and enjoy.
