Wow, this wasn’t just a great Christmas movie, it was an amazing regular movie. It was so smart and witty, with colorful characters who were really memorable. They had fun with the standard Christmas movie genre, but in a really smart and super respectful way. This was just a really fine piece of writing and should be an instant classic. Loved it! Great job! Sequel please!!!!
By the way, Up network seems to have very humorous and off-beat Christmas movies and they totally rock for that. They’re not just cookie cutter movies, so it is very refreshing. But this was really a cut above.
This movie could have been lots of fun. Given the premise of making fun of a typical Hallmark type Christmas movie there was potential. But it didn’t get that funny. The 2 sisters sound silly at times. And things actually end up like a boring done to death Christmas movie. There was no magic like a Groundhog Day type fantasy.
The cast includes real life spouses Brant Daugherty and Kim Hidalgo. He is better when not acting cutesy. Don’t get how the fantasy and reality blended together.
