Nothing about this was Unexpected.
Tyler Hynes and Bethany Joy Lenz= Hallmark Magic.
So here’s how I break it down:
5 categories, 5 hearts possible in each
CHEMISTRY (between the leads) ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ well these two. 🥰😍 Jaime & Emily, why did you EVER break up?!?!? We all know you’re both madly in love with each other still!!!! Loved every second. The fighting, the banter, the flirting….the angst and the MAKE UP!!!! They are both so funny and sassy and I’ll take a million more of those kisses please 😍😍😍😍
STORYLINE (overall plot of the movie) ❤️❤️❤️❤️ it was so interesting watching Tyler play a man that was sure of himself. He usually plays a very confident leading man….but he did well with this! Plus, I love when our leads “fake it til they make it”
SUPPORTING CAST ❤️❤️❤️❤️ This whole family was so sweet, but dad and mom stole my heart over and over. How cute were they?!?! Dancing and plotting in the kitchen 😍 Then, Grandma swooped in to give some heart tugging wisdom too. And i loved Becca & Jamie’s close relationship too…what a great sibling bond!
FEELS ❤️❤️❤️❤️ So much LOVE and Christmas feels in this! Emily and Jamie commanded my entire heart this whole movie…I could watch them again and again. They both were hurting so much ….and yet made me laugh along the way. How do they do that?!?
HALLMARK SURPRISE (what made this different from typical Hallmark movies) ❤️❤️❤️❤️ that play 🤣 what in the world was that with the unicorn??? What a hot mess! ….and speaking of HOT… Andrew Walker CAMEO!!! Heeeyyyy!!!!
NEW (ungraded) CATEGORY no hearts given, but I feel like some of the “traditions” or decor in these movies NEED a little spotlight. I mean…
WHY DIDN’T I THINK OF THAT?!?!
- OVER THE TOP Porch decor…did they have a fire on there????
- Blinking Lights VESTS!!! Too much? Or not enough? 🤣
