Maggie Chalke, a journalist at the Gazette newspaper in her small hometown of Harrison, has always dreamed of working for a prestigious big city newspaper. In the lead up to Christmas, Mitch O'Grady is hired as the new morning DJ at Harrison's radio station, WCNQ. Maggie and Mitch knew each other casually ten years ago both working for the radio station at their college in what was her freshman year. That Christmas, Mitch, on the spur of the moment, vowed to give Maggie the best Christmas ever when it looked like she wouldn't make it home on time to spend it with her family. As it was arguably the best Christmas gift she could have received, Maggie has thought about Mitch all these years in he unexpectedly not returning to college in the new year. While Mitch was all about Christmas back then, he is now an avowed Christmas hater in refusing even to play Christmas music on his show. So Maggie decides to help Mitch regain his Christmas spirit in being his Secret Santa. Much like he ... Written by Huggo

quietly good Hallmark Christmas movie
13 December 2016 | by jonathanrspaldingSee all my reviews

Of all the general plots of the Hallmark movies, Christmas and otherwise, my favorite is the quiet, reserved, crushing female lead doing battle with the aggressive, flashy, or sometimes even a little bit evil, hussy for the heart of a tenderhearted prince. This movie has that plot and a Christmas theme as well.

The three key factors that make a movie like this one are, is there a real romantic story, are the supporting characters or story lines funny and/or interesting, and is the plot relatively believable and the Christmas theme well done.

This movie has all three. While not laugh out loud funny the supporting characters do provide laughs and a base for the movie. The story is told in a subtle way allowing the characters to have a little dimension. It has a nice believable backstory that adds to its charm. It ties Christmas into its plot very well.

Needless to say the result is predictable but if you were looking for suspense you will not be watching the last ten minutes of this kind of movie. However, for a nice two hours of Christmas diversion while you are wrapping some presents, this will work.
