Trivia

Poinsettias are native to hot, dry forested areas in Mexico. They would not grow well on a snowy Canadian farm. See more »

Goofs

When Ellie figures out that the poinsettias are not changing colour because they are getting too much light at night because the neighbouring city's lights have made it brighter and the old covers are too porous, Greg agrees, and says he will order more porous coverings, instead of less porous/impermeable coverings.

Good Movie Featuring a Spirited Bethany Joy Lenz
18 January 2019 | by geheweSee all my reviews

This was a good movie. I saw Bethany Joy Lenz in SNOWED INN CHRISTMAS (2017) and that role suited her much better. Marcus Rosner as the guy just didn't seem quite right, but he was very lively. John Schneider as her dad was a bit of an overkill. He starred in one of my favorite Christmas movies MARY CHRISTMAS (2002) and is a great actor (I didn't realize he was on the Dukes of Hazard- the things you learn watching Christmas movies). The mom was played by a great actress as well. The part that was memorable was the one of Patty played by Lauren London. A cameo of the soldier didn't quite work. The sister and niece didn't quite work either. The movie was good but it may have been a bit of a missed opportunity to be great. Nice try. We hope Bethany Joy Lenz keeps making them.
