Sappy and predictable like Christmas is supposed to be
24 December 2017 | by WordsmithSee all my reviews

Yes, this movie is sappy as hell and totally predictable, but fir me it captured exactly the Christmas spirit I was looking for in a movie. After reading all the dissing reviews my expectations weren't high, but somehow all of it surprised me. Pretty good acting, great to see Eliza Taylor again, and all the cliché elements were there, including the plot holes. Sure, we've seen this done tons of times before, but doesn't that just make it enjoyable. Well, for me it did!
