harmless Christmas romance (with a dog)
11 December 2016 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Maggie McPhail (Chandra West) is stuck in a rut. His boss at the ice cream company doesn't appreciate her and her work is being undermined by weasel coworker Brendon Lutz. Her pathetic boyfriend Chance Glidewell breaks up with her. Christmas is coming. She decides to get a dog for her and her son Ethan. Jack Burgin (Antonio Cupo) is a stay-at-home sports writer single dad to teenager Olivia. He got a dog for her naming him Bear. Bear's runaway tendency gets him locked up at the pound. That's where Maggie finds and adopts him.

This is a relatively harming romantic Christmas TV movie. Chandra West is a solid TV actress. Antonio Cupo may not be that good but he has enough sensitivity. They and the dog are all set up for a functional holiday romance. The chemistry is generally set at a slow boil. The other men are all weasels or idiots or both. It's OK to waste a couple of hours as long as one understands that this is a waste of time.
