Storyline

"Heidi (Osment), who initially left her small town of Pleasant Valley with the dream of one day becoming a successful painter, has put her own art on hold to excel as an art gallery curator. Now, a week before the gallery's big Christmas party, she must return home to watch her niece and nephew. She comes face to face with her high school love, Chris, now a teacher, who is in over his head after he must find a new last-minute location for the Christmas dance. Heidi offers to help him and together they discover a beautiful place for the dance, perfectly capturing the Christmas spirit, called Wonderland Farms. The more time Heidi spends in Pleasant Valley decorating for the Christmas SnowBall, the more she finds herself inspired to start painting again. With Christmas fast approaching, Heidi soon becomes torn between the life she built in the city and the life she is surprisingly charmed by back in Pleasant Valley, embracing her true passion."

Christmas Cringeland
1 November 2020 | by athunderstormSee all my reviews

I lost track of the number of times I had to pause this movie, because it was so cringey.

Heidi is supposed to be a very talented artist, who forgot how much she loved painting. But when she finally does paint, her art work is infantile and silly looking, still everyone acts like she's amazing. That was quite funny.

The chemistry between her and Chris is non existent and the final kiss one of the driest I've ever witnessed between two lead charachters..

I did like the theme of "Do I live a life that makes me happy or just how I think I should live..?"

It was a cute film. Silly and cringey, but sweet somehow.
