Just not enough..

A cynical journalist decides to take a train from Washington, D.C. to Los Angeles for Christmas to get inspiration for a story in honor of his late father. He gets to know the other passengers and runs into an old flame while aboard. Dermot Mulroney, Joan Cusack and Danny Glover are all good in the respected roles and characters plus their perfomances were pretty good as well but the film pretty much misses the christmas spirit that it needed to have but also makes for a very forgettable Hallmark movie although much better than some of their other ones.
