Corny but...
13 November 2019 | by tonybedfordSee all my reviews

There are many failings of this move. The character development is shallow, the action is lacklustre, the plot is fairly unbelievable, and yet this movie has a certain charm to it. I think the heroine is quite charming, and one can not help but notice her "voluptuous curves" which are front and centre in many scenes. If you've got it flaunt it I say...

So with so many failings what gives this movie its charm? I think it is the sets and the lighting which I thought were very atmospheric. The charming Cafe, the wonderful guest house, the snowy streets were all very evocative of Christmas time.

It was a pleasure to see Andie MacDowell - I'd not seen her in anything since Four Weddings and a Funeral and that was a looonngg time ago. Yes she has aged but then haven't we all!

If you are wondering whether to watch this or not - go for it - just for the heartwarming Christmas atmosphere.
