Best Christmas Movie on HM This Season

This movie is a stand out on Hallmark. The diversity of the cast, and the chemistry between the Leads Shelby (Tamera Mowry Housley) and Evan (Ronnie Rowe) was excellent. How their relationship progressed was actually believable. The little girl, who played Shelby's daughter was absolutely adorable, and I loved her chemistry with both Tamera and Evan. The characters had real depth to their individual stories, I loved that it started off with a mother and daughter dealing with loss, and making the most of the Holiday. This movie allowed Tamera to show off her more dramatic acting chops and I'm here for it! I sincerely hope there's more of these movies to come!

No one in this movie was having a good time

While some hallmark movies end up being cute gems, this movie unfortunately falls under the category of just painfully generic and lacking in any real intrigue or passion. The characters have NO chemistry, none, the lead is unlikable and just treats the guy terribly the whole time, and every single person acting in this doesn't seem to want to be acting in it and are phoning their roles in. While the premise has the potential for charm, it loses any of it due to wooden performances and an incredibly weak script, plus some absolutely baffling choices like to have the main character's job be a rocket scientist but that having no bearing on the plot. Disappointing, boring, hollow, no feeling of Christmas magic, just mild annoyance. The child actress was a decent casting choice though, but again weighed down by poor writing that didn't seem to fit the character's age.

Opposites don't attract, until they do.

The best thing about this movie was the acting. Tamera Mowry-Housley plays a widowed mother of an adorable little girl. She is a rocket scientist and the team's supervisor. The manager of the company is Evan, played by Ronnie Rowe, Jr. Now Evan is a very interesting character. To say he is not a people person is putting it mildly. He is brilliant but cold and uncaring of his employees. He cannot seem to understand or have empathy towards others. He almost behaves as if he is "on the spectrum." 3 valuable employees have resigned, siting his management as the cause and because of that he is in trouble with the board of directors. They tell him not to be such a demanding task master and get a life, essentially. If one more employee quits, he will be fired. Yet right after that, due a deadline, he informs his employees that they will have to work Christmas Eve *and* possibly Christmas. He is just clueless and disconnected. It is too much for Tamera, and she tells him off and quits on the spot. But that day, she had to bring her daughter Grace to work for a few hours, and the little girl, nicely played by Isabel Birch, takes one look at her mother's hateful boss, and believes he is the "Christmas Prince" from a story passed down through her family. She believe this fantasy figure, who picks out one little girl or boy every Christmas to grant 12 wishes to, is real. Tamera knows what's up with her boss's bosses and tells him she will return to work if he poses as the Prince through Christmas. If she doesn't he will lose his job. And he is horrified and even a little frightened. Yes, she probably should have told her daughter the truth and not blackmailed her boss, but then we wouldn't have a movie, would we?

As Evan spends more time with Tamera and her little girl, he starts to open up and warm up. His communication skills improve as well. During their first dinner, for example, his conversation is like, "I see you eat carrots. Do you eat carrots often?" Scintillating! But soon they are opening up to each other, confiding, and empathizing. He learns she is a widow. Three years ago, when her husband died, he approved her bereavement leave but didn't even care enough to ask who died! When she reminds him of this, he is shocked. It causes him to see himself clearly and make an effort to change his ways. Besides his personal relationship developing with Tamera and Grace, By the end of the movie he becomes a great boss, and even gets promoted, instead of fired!

That Ronnie Rowe Jr. Makes his character sympathetic is little short of a miracle. His transformation is slow and subtly done, even changing his body language and way he stands. Fantastic Job. Mowry-Housley was so funny, warm and charming in this. The secondary characters are entertaining as well. She has a support group she started to help her cope with her husband's death. It includes Caitlin Stryker, a Hallmark veteran who is always good. I've never seen Nathanael Vass who plays Lorenzo, her "work husband" but he was a treat as well. I hope I see him again. The actual plot was cheesy as heck, but the writing was bright and amusing, and considerably elevated by the actors' talents.
