Entertaining for the meek and mild
3 December 2017 | by HotToastyRagSee all my reviews

A Wish for Christmas is the perfect movie for the meek and mild this holiday season. Hallmark's Lacey Chabert stars as a classic pushover: she brings coffee for everyone in the office, does her colleague's work, and lets her boss steal her ideas. When she makes a Christmas wish for courage, her request is granted.

Along the way in her newfound life, Lacey takes charge of her career and starts to fall in love with her boss's boss, Paul Greene. Paul has his own demons to face, and the upbeat and slightly pushy Lacey helps him return home to face them with his family. In typical Hallmark fashion, this movie is more corny than realistic. I mean, if you'd really spent your whole life being a pushover, could you tell people off and they'd accept it? But it's Christmas, so we make allowances for cheesy plot lines, tidy endings, and embarrassingly terrible Christmas caroling. Give this one a watch when it makes a repeat appearance on television; it's not the best but it's entertaining.
