Subtle Hidden Message Makes This Worth Watching
27 November 2018 | by Christmas-ReviewerSee all my reviews

I Have Reviewed OVER 500 "Christmas Films and Specials". Please BEWARE Of films and specials with just one review! For instance When "It's a POSITIVE" chances are that the reviewer was involved with the production. "If its Negative" then they may have a grudge against the film for whatever reason. I am fare about these films.

What I like about this film was that this is the third film (maybe there will be a fourth) in a series of films in this Hallmark Christmas Movie. The first two films were "Finding Father Christmas" and "Engaging Father Christmas". Now this one is called "Marrying Father Christmas" and the message this film cleverly does makes this film one that you will long remember in the years to come.

In this film Erin Krakow once again stars as Miranda Chester. She runs the emotional range here from "a-b" but it works! In this Miranda is about to get married. She is closing up her shop in Boston for the holidays and is about to get married on Christmas. At the last minute a man wants to hire her services but she politely declines because of her "Time Restraints".

A day later she sees the man in Vermont (And he looks like Dru for Despicable Me) and she is puzzled. The thing is this man might throw a money wrench into her plans.
