Not worth it.
5 November 2018 | by acborgiaSee all my reviews

First off I wouldn't call this a holiday movie, just a movie that happens to take place at Christmas time. While the concept was good but the classic, "the grass isn't always greener on the outside", the telling of it fell flat. The ending was just down right horrible and made zero sense.
