Our fourth trip to Evergreen!
I love this little town with all it’s Over the Top Christmas Love!
Unfortunately, this quaint little place may have worn out it’s welcome on me this go round. I’m not certain if it was the odd storylines or the fact that there was a definite lack of Christmas magic in Evergreen this year of 2020.
So here’s how I’m going to break it down:
5 categories, 5 hearts possible in each
CHEMISTRY (between the leads) ❤️❤️ So, you know when you see a supporting cast couple and think they are adorable….and say “these two need their own storyline and movie….” Well, I didn’t say it for Elliot and Hannah…..ever, so don’t blame me! They were so sweet and cute in all the other Evergreens, but just not leading couple chemistry for me. I will say they stepped it up toward the end of the movie….but no proposal? We’ve seen them together so much and this is a Hallmark movie….it just fell so flat…..
STORYLINE (overall plot of the movie) ❤️❤️ It has to be hard to come up with a Christmas-centric story with the same people from the same town…..4 movies in a row. That being said, THIS IS EVERGREEN!!!! I mean, the town had a larger than life advent calendar hidden for YEARS!!!!! An old hat factory? Really???? Then…We think we are getting a Christmas Wedding….and nothing. Thomas doesn’t even get home for his own wedding….let alone Christmas?!?!?! (thanks COVID….you can’t convince me that he wasn’t quarantined for something….giant EYEROLL for Michelle’s speech) I’m sorry, if a pandemic is going to mess with Christmas in Evergreen, it’s gone too far. Also, then, just write it in! Dumb.
SUPPORTING CAST ❤️❤️❤️ The Cooper Twins!!!! These ladies make my face hurt from smiling so much when they are on the screen! They were the bright and shining light in Evergreen this year. Michelle’s sister was pretty good too, but honestly, I just really loved her hair and couldn’t focus on much else.
FEELS ❤️❤️ Thomas & Michelle’s wedding vows!!! Wow! This movies’ romantic saving grace….wish they would have gotten married for real…..Yay for Ali being preggo!
HALLMARK SURPRISE (anything that really jumped out from the “norm” Hallmark Movie equation) ❤️ I’m sorry. WHY DIDN’T HANNAH AND ELLIOT get engaged???? Listen, that SNOWBALL SHOULD HAVE OPENED UP TO A RING! And Elliot with all his phone calls and sneaking around of the nephew…..SHOULD HAVE CHANGED UP THE WEDDING from a Thomas/Michelle to a Elliot/Hannah ceremony. Not only an engagement, but a surprise Wedding! (this is what I thought was going to happen the whole time….) Hallmark, call me. We need to talk.
