Tell me it isn’t so
Jana Kramer is one of my favorite Christmas movie stars. If I weren’t such a fan of hers this would be lucky to get more than 1 star. Her character, Sam, and Ryan McPartlin’s Coop spar, no fight, for almost exactly half the movie. And then suddenly, there’s a cease fire and the animosity disappears. But even then, I just didn’t feel it even when “that moment” occurs. It didn’t feel real. The acting in general was less than I’d expect from these actors.
Sam and Coop get thrown together to repair the inn and “save Harbor fest”. There’s one formula moment after another including she-falls-and-he-catches-her, the preliminary almost-kiss, a snowball fight, the recently passed mentor, the nostalgia moments, the mysterious but cliche of why-we-really-broke-up, and Coop putting his arms around her to help her do something. There is too much use of musical montage. There are scenes of the two just building or decorating together. The story is completely cliche and the rest is filler. Throw in an unnecessary shot of Kramer’s chest in a negligee and later a closeup of another woman in a T-shirt.
Even the attempts at sentimentality at the end feel forced.
The whole movie feels like it was written in a couple hours and filmed in a day.
Average at best
A Christmas TV movie that wasn’t very christmasy, but the story was okay, completely unbelievable, but that’s to be expected in this genre, the acting was reasonable, but overall I was underwhelmed.
