Plot:

After a spontaneous kiss, a struggling designer ends up falling in love with her demanding boss’s boyfriend as she decorates his home for a Christmas party.

Review:

So this is one of the better ranked Christmas movies available on Netflix right now. I’m trying to broaden my horizons and watch Christmas movies I’ve never seen before, but I’m still interested in watching. That really narrows down my options, so here goes.

Brendan Fehr has the appropriate level of hotness for a romantic Christmas movie but his character doesn’t warm up well. He seems distant and aloof, which is understandable since he’s about to get engaged to another woman, but it doesn’t help with the romance side of the movie.

The ending is kind of contrived, the handyman was never included on some of the conversations, yet somehow figured out that the Adam the girls were talking about was the same one. There is evidently only one Adam in Boston. The running into the nutcracker was silly and that emotional scene in the elevator was pretty bad.

I liked the movie, for the most part, but it definitely ended on a low note.

3/5

Side Note:

That was a ridiculously large elevator.

Oh to be rich and have peons to do the boring/dirty work.
