Quirky, Bewildering... and in the end, Funny and Sweet
1 January 2018 | by wayfindSee all my reviews

Okay, I admit that the first time I watched this movie, somewhere in the middle of the female lead's "crazy" phase, I ranted, "This movie is about an insane woman! Why would they make a Christmas romance about a crazy woman?!" - BUT did I turn it off? No. I needed to see what happened. :)

This movie is definitely not the typical "Hallmark-type" movie, and it challenges the viewer a little. (The heroine gets sloppy drunk at one point. The Dad of the family gets a little more suggestive with the Mom than we usually would see - but it's very funny and not offensive, at all.) The actors are unusually talented and I advise sticking with it to the end. Our heroine eventually... well, you know. It ends nicely.

Btw, one reviewer referred to a weird "family contract". No. The trouble starts with grandma's WILL - and as I understand it, a properly executed will is legally binding. Just sayin' - the story line doesn't have some nonsensical base to set the action in motion.... I'm watching it a 2nd time.
