As Christmas approaches, Amelia Hughes, a career-focused Chicago app developer lacking in holiday spirit, returns to her small hometown of Christmas Creek to rediscover the meaning of Christmas. There, she reunites with her childhood best friend Mike and her estranged uncle Harry, whose mysterious rift with Amelia's father divided her family during the holiday season when she was a child. As she engages in local holiday festivities - and begins falling for Mike - Amelia finds herself feeling the Christmas spirit. Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

There's an app for that!
19 January 2021 | by adamjohns-42575See all my reviews

This is actually the third Stephen Huszar film I have seen in a row now and I have to say I don't mind that one bit. He is really quite a guy, handsome and funny with a lovely smile and manly to boot. Add to that Steven Weber whom I have always liked as an actor ever since I saw him in Jeffrey and the fact that the story isn't bad either and you've got a winning formula.

The romance is cute and the family storyline makes it more than just the usual. I like the fact that we get time to see the couple come together and rekindle their past where as some films are rushing it all lately to the point that you're wondering why and how they fell in love after meeting twice?

It's not one that has a huge difference to its tale or a standout, but it does what it does well.
