Goofs

When the lead female's SUV won't start due to a low battery, the lead male's sister diagnoses it as a bad alternator. Alternators generate electricity for vehicle engines, and they can only be tested by operating them to see if they output the correct voltage. Since the SUV would not start, such a test would not be possible. The correct process would be to jump start the SUV and then test the alternator. See more »

Follow your dream
30 December 2018 | by Jackbv123See all my reviews

The theme of follow your dream is a drum beaten pretty loudly in this movie.

The story premise of a bachelor hiring a Christmas decorator/planner isn't unique but it works out in this movie. Interesting climax too.

Alexa PenaVega is a lot of fun in this movie. I like optimistic characters and she's all that here. But I'm not so sure that her acting comes off as natural. Likewise Jonathan Bennett for acting. It's not that either one is bad, but sometimes a shot or a line just doesn't seem right.

I recently noticed (too late, I fear) that Hallmark likes throwing in Easter eggs this year (little surprise treasures for the observant viewer). In this one, watch for a photograph of PenaVega and a special someone.
