Not bad. Keep politics out of holiday movies please
20 December 2018 | by jk-692-236394See all my reviews

I have been watching a ton of Christmas movies. This is the 2nd one this week, (the other one was on Freeform), this one is from ION. that just had to inject a dig against conservatives and politics into it. The main character has a vision board. No problem. What is a problem is it mostly featured photos of 0bama and his family! What the heck is that? This did not even fit the movie AT ALL. And they show it multiple times in the movie. It of course had the words, "compassion" over one set of 0bama photos, and then "Happy Family" and so forth. It was out of place and an obvious "statement". Hey movie makers, leave politics out of your freaking holiday movies. Take a breath and just make a story without bringing in your own political agenda. The movie was okay. Where did they film this? It looked like they filmed it in some Santa's Village somewhere. It moved along at a nice clip and I found it enjoyable. I have seen some true stinkers this year, and this is not one of them.
