Storyline

Aspiring interior designer Layla O'Reilly is dreading the Christmastime wedding of her cousin who's marrying Layla's ex-fiancé. Although Seth Murphy is the one responsible for introducing the bride and groom, she begrudgingly accepts his offer to be her date as she's out of options. Seth gets carried away at the reception and announces they're engaged, forcing a mortified Layla to keep up the pretense. But as the faux couple spends more time together they find themselves feeling something very real. Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

Very Sweet

BEWARE OF FALSE REVIEWS & REVIEWERS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW TO THEIR NAME. NOW WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE MOVIE. IF ITS A NEGATIVE REVIEW THEN THEY MIGHT HAVE A GRUDGE AGAINST THE FILM . NOW I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 200 HOLIDAY FILMS. I HAVE NO AGENDA. I AM HONEST

Aspiring interior designer Layla is dreading the Christmastime wedding of her cousin who's marrying Layla's ex-fiancé. Although Seth is the one responsible for introducing the bride and groom, she begrudgingly accepts his offer to be her date as she's out of options. Seth gets carried away at the reception and announces they're engaged, forcing a mortified Layla to keep up the pretense.

What I found unrealistic was a woman steeling her cousins fiancé and expecting her cousin to forgive her. THAT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN. I also think the woman would not of attended wedding.

Now with that out of the way do I think this was a good film? "Its Average" its pleasant enough. The films stars two people who are convincing in their roles.

The plot moves along nicely, Everything that happens after the initial set up is 60% plausible.

The film does entertain but the core audience for this film is going to be women. Most men will be bored. Family Safe but kids will hate this!

If you like "Christmas Movies" then watch this.
