Great CHRISTMAS movie, don't expect an Oscar worthy picture, it's a Christmas movie, with all the cliché's, and it knows that.
1 January 2019 | by hugomerckxSee all my reviews

This is a great Christmas movie to watch with your whole family. It has the cliché's of a Christmas movie, and it' s very cheasy sometimes, like you expect and want from a family Christmas movie.

The story is predictable, but enjoyable, and you can just watch without thinking about anything. The acting is good, nothing outstanding, Eliza Taylor did great in my opinion, it's nice to see her in a whole different genre than the 100. The rest of the cast is good to.

I don't really understand the 5.7 rating here on IMDB. What did everyone expect when they watched this movie? It's exactly what I expected it to be, and that's why I watched it. If this isn't your thing, don't watch it. You know what to expect when you watch a movie like this.

So if you wanted to watch this movie because you wanted a cheasy family Christmas movie, watch it. Don't let the bad reviews stop you from doing so. They're ridiculous in my opinion.
