I’m just sitting here still trying to process the twists and turns of this movie.
This one is GOOD. SO SO GOOD!
nothing that I expected….and everything I want in a Hallmark flick.
So here’s how I break it down:
5 categories, 5 hearts possible in each
CHEMISTRY (between the leads) ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ I had high hopes going into this one with Ian Harding….and not only was I not disappointed…but him and Kim Matula surpassed all my expectations! These two were magical together. Gosh, just watching him fall in love with her and assuming they never would have a chance to be together in the end just yanked at all my heart strings. There was so much more to this movie than the love story, which, as you will see I also loved….but I could have watched an entire 2 more hours of Peter & Kat alone. That’s how amazing the chemistry was. Swoon.
STORYLINE (overall plot of the movie) ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ For being spin on “A Christmas Carol” this sure was the most original plot! There was just so much going on! Multiple families. Multiple time periods. The “Scrooging” The comedy. The tragedy. So many twists and turns. This was one of the more unpredictable Hallmark stories I’ve ever seen. Loved every second. An amazing way to share the season of giving!
SUPPORTING CAST ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Arlene & Roy. I want to be scrooged just to hang out with them for a day! (well, Kat too, obvi) And, Susan! What a trip! I couldn’t tell if she was drunk the entire movie….but I’m going with drunk on Christmas Spirit! 😉
FEELS ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ I am not going to list out all the things that got my heart going….I just really need you to watch it. I may have just felt every emotion possible in these 2 hours. I laughed, I swooned, I was sad & yearning….then shocked…got angry a few times…jolted into tears…missed people….felt Christmas spirit…wanted to punch someone….wanted to hug someone…ALL THE FEELS, my friends.
HALLMARK SURPRISE (what made this different from typical Hallmark movies) ❤️❤️❤️ ❤️❤️ Holy Rooty Tooty! So much of this movie surprised me. The plot was fresh and fun. More than once I had my jaw on the floor. Again…you have to see it for yourself. I got to watch this with my whole family and even my husband said it was one of the best Hallmark movies he’s ever seen.
