Christmas movie set in Ireland….
Lacey Chabert in a romantic-comedy….
This had me SMILING the entire time!
So here’s how I break it down:
5 categories, 5 hearts possible in each
CHEMISTRY (between the leads) ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Aiden was obviously smitten with Brooke from the beginning even with the sassy banter….but when he took her hand and told her he wouldn’t help her with the star but they could do it together, they had me hooked. This Earl is SMOOOOTH! Now he just needs a hairstylist 😏
STORYLINE (overall plot of the movie) ❤️❤️ I don’t like these “lying about who you are” plots. How do you come back from that? Personally and Professionally? I didn’t really like how this resolved, but hey, it’s Hallmark….I guess we are just going to forgive and forget 🤷♀️.
SUPPORTING CAST ❤️❤️❤️❤️ I LOVE me some accents! So that was amazing to listen too, no matter who they were or what they said 😉 Margot was over the top cheesy…so you probably have to be in the mood to watch that, but I actually loved her.
FEELS ❤️❤️❤️❤️ most of this movie I was just giggling and having fun watching Brooke and Margot with their shenanigans…but when their lies were catching up to them, they tackled the serious well too. AHHH!!! Brooke! Tell the truth!!! The baking scene/the chapel/the dresses….my heart 💔 Final Scene was Hallmark Gold tho…..
HALLMARK SURPRISE (what made this different from typical Hallmark movies) ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ ooh, QUEEN with the smack down! Loved that! But honestly, she didn’t have too…they kind of deserved it ….but the FAMILY REVEAL!! That knocked my socks off!
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?!?!
- The metal tree sculpture was actually really pretty! I wish we got to see more of it!
- IRISH DANCERS! 👯♀️ 👯 YES!!!
- Seriously, just every single shot of the castle decor inside AND out
