1000 reasons it shouldn't work ... but indeed it does
2 February 2017 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

As I have indicated in other IMDb reviews, it doesn't really matter what "country of origin" the production company chooses to stamp on its press releases, the Canuck film industry has over the years pretty much cornered the market on these specific type of X-mas treats, and you could not find a more typical variation if you tried.

The settings are Canadian, as is the crew, and the extras are so Canadian it hurts. (Although -- a mercy -- somewhere in this millennium Canada learned that the first priority for its films was teaching its actors to lose the accent.)

The story however is rock solid, the direction is more than competent, and the two leads, Viva Bianca and Kirk Barker are actually quite amazing. They work with the script very aggressively and sell it. Bianca in particular gives no indication she played the #1 heartless bi-yach in Spartacus and comes across as sweet, competent, someone you really would want to know.

Recommended.
