Let’s face it, most Hallmark movies have some cheesy and predictability factors. But, this one was a sweet Christmas movie, where the romance takes a backseat. This movie feature is a workaholic character, like many Hallmark movies do, that never makes time for romance but discovers that you can always make time for the things that are important, especially love. I enjoyed the character tremendously, and thought that all the actors had great chemistry.

Most of the time, we get workaholics that are cold and uptight. But this movie takes a new approach to the stereotype, which was refreshing. She loved her job and was willing to skip Christmas with her family for work. Still, she loved the holiday, and missed her loved ones dearly. It was nice that her love interest wasn’t some unfeeling jerk coming to take over her job. He was a genuine guy, doing a favor for his mom and trying to show that Christmas traditions are important.

I will say that as the producer of the Christmas special who has been working at the company for five years, they should have had a little more faith in her ability to put on a good show. On the flip side, I understand that most of us trust our families opinions more than other people. I loved the plot of reuniting the brother to surprise their mom, live on TV. It was a wholesome idea that showed how spending the holiday with family is all that matters. I did find the fact that they were known as the “Three Wise Men” a little silly and too on-the-nose Christmas for me.

I thought the brothers interacted well together, and you could get a feel of their different personalities. Even though the movie was only an hour and a half long, the love story wasn’t rushed. They fell for each other naturally, despite their contrasting personalities. The plot was fun and creative, while still being a typical Hallmark movie. I don’t think this movie is super original, but it is one I would watch again.

Hallmark & More // Update

Hi Friends,
As you all know that books are a big part of my life. However, I am a shameless Hallmark movie lover. I thought it would be fun to incorporate that into my blog. I want to start reviewing Hallmark movies for you all. I will be reviewing old and new movies from the network just as I do books.

I know this seems random, but I think it would be a fun addition to my blog. I could review Netflix and Lifetime original movies as well. I understand that this wont be something everyone will enjoy, but it could be pretty fun. I would love to know your thoughts, and some Hallmark movie recommendations.

In July, Hallmark does Christmas in July, which means a lot of Christmas movie reviews coming your way. But don’t worry I will still be keeping up with my book content as well. I think that this added content will be a lot of fun and I’m excited for it.

Until The Next Chapter,
Bunny
