My Christmas Wish Came True- A Good Lacey Chabert Christmas Movie
15 January 2017 | by geheweSee all my reviews

This is Lacey Chabert's 6th Christmas Movie and it is her best. I was about ready to give up on her. Finally a movie with some excitement that I don't fall asleep watching it. This was a good role for her. As unassertive Sara Thomas, she is wronged and is granted a wish to have the courage to speak up for 48 hours. Many scenes where she surprises by speaking up- all good. It was well done and the anticipation of what she is going to say/do next keeps the movie exciting. The admiration of her boss is just great and really makes the movie. The role of the boss is well done. Also the zillionaire Wilson was well played. The reviews preceding this one indicate a movie similar to her other five. No. This movie is much better. I will watch this one again and I am very happy it was good.

Just to remind. Matchmaker Santa (2012), Royal Christmas (2014), Tree that Saved Christmas (2014), Family for Christmas (2015), A Christmas Melody (2015).
