My Hallmark Obsession

Hallmark Movie Review: Christmas in Tahoe

After Laura Osnes’ Hallmark debut last year in One Royal Holiday….I was so excited to see this movie…

my expectations were so crushed, I still don’t think I’m over it.

What am I missing on this one?

I feel like I was in the twilight zone the entire time I was watching this….

also, I spent way too much time googling who “Train” was than I care to admit.

So here’s how I break it down:
5 categories, 5 hearts possible in each

CHEMISTRY (between the leads) ❤️❤️There was just something about Claire and Ryan I couldn’t get behind. I didn’t buy this relationship at all…..I have to admit that it had something to do with the fact that although Kyle Selig is 29, he looks like he’s closer to 20….and Laura Osnes is a gorgeous 36 year old woman….who needs a MAN. Sorry. I said what I said. They did make out up with it at the end with the longest kiss ever in the history of Hallmark movies though….where in the world was that heat all movie?

STORYLINE (overall plot of the movie) ❤️ok, so here’s what I don’t understand….you have cast Laura Osnes, a killer broadway star as your lead, and she doesn’t sing? And, Kyle Selig (who I had to google) a broadway star in his own right….is the “CELEBRITY SINGER” but only sings backup….to Pat Monahan of Train (who I ALSO had to google–that one embarrassed me), who is hiding that he wants to be a singer…but ends up as an opening act to an acapella group that WAS NOT GOOD…AT ALL. Was this suppose to be a parody?

SUPPORTING CAST ❤️❤️❤️So, Train. At first I thought I hadn’t heard of this band because I was too young….I mean, Jackson looks like a lounge singer, right? Turns out, after a little research….I’m too old? Listen, I KNOW all of the songs Train has made famous. I just didn’t know who sang said songs….or what the group/singers looked like. Apparently when you are pregnant forever and raising little babies, you don’t take the time to looks up band names or singers anymore. LOL! Oops. Sorry, Train, I actually love a lot of your songs. Now, was Pat Monahan an amazing actor. Short answer: no. Songs were good though.

FEELS ❤️❤️Aside from the BIG OL’ Monster Kiss at the end….this movie was fairly blah for me….they could have at least gave us the whole variety show! That would have been entertaining!

HALLMARK SURPRISE (what made this different from typical Hallmark movies) ❤️3 HUGE musical talents in one movie…and barely utilizing them. Surprise in the wrong direction.

9/25 Sadly, do not want to ride this Train again
