Goofs

There is a Grover Cleveland school in Chicago, but it is on West Byron, not 17th, as Max's niece says when she invites Eve to the Christmas pageant. In addition, it is implied that Eve's brother and his family live in Oak Park, so her nephews would not be in the same school. See more »

Quotes

Eve: I would just do it all so differently if I had a second chance.
Pearl: I hear that a lot.
Eve: I just don't know how I lost track of everything that was important.
Pearl: Hear that a lot too.
Eve: You must hear everything a lot.
Pearl: Well, one thing I never hear: no one has ever said, "I spent too much time loving someone."

Kristen Davis Shines But This Is Still An Average Holiday Film
28 November 2016 | by Christmas-ReviewerSee all my reviews

Kristen Davis has many fans because of her role as Charlotte York in "Sex and the City". However in this film she isn't playing Charlotte York she is playing Miranda the problem is the role seems to be written for someone in their 30's. Kristen is 20 years too old for the part. Now about the story!

Upon her untimely death, a workaholic finds herself in training to be a Christmas Angel in Heaven. Despite being the worst recruit in the history of Christmas, she's assigned a hard luck case. As she's forced to help solve his problems, she'll start to discover the meaning of Christmas and maybe even fall in love along the way

This whole movie however doesn't have a pulse. The tender moments fall flat. The romance has no sparks and the singing pushes away all plausibility.

This is a film that borrows plots and plot twist from every Christmas film you can think of. If you are going to steel then yes "Steel from the best". The plot however never seems to jell.

This is okay but not worth a repeat viewing!
