Not too bad for a Christmas movie...
9 June 2018 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

This turned out to be one of the more enjoyable Christmas movies that I got around to watching during the Christmas season of 2017.

Why?

Well, because of the storyline that had elements of a classic Christmas tale laced up with some lighthearted comedy and romance. But also because they had some very nicely talented actors and actresses on the cast list. And the chemistry between Lacey Chabert and Paul Greene was so good.

Sure, like all Christmas movies, then "A Wish For Christmas" was blessed with an overly predictable and generic storyline and plot. But hey, don't they all? I suppose that is part of the Christmas movie charm for some reason.

While this does not have the making of a Christmas classic, it is definitely a Christmas movie worthy of being watched at least once for the holidays with your loved ones.
