Holiday movies fill our hearts with joy. Between Hallmark's Countdown to Christmas, It's a Wonderful Lifetime (or Fa La La La Lifetime, if you prefer) and ABC Family's 25 Days of Christmas, there are so many movies and so little time.
To help you, our friends, we have sacrificed by watching as many of these movies as possible and will give you our two cent review. Hopefully this will help you know what you do or do not want to watch.
When Anna, an unemployed painter, is unable to make ends meet, she is
hired to become a personal Christmas shopper for Marc, an uptight
corporate exec. As they work together, Marc learns that Christmas giving
has less to do with the amount of money spent and more to do with the
importance of the gift, while Anna discovers she might find success as
an artist in a way she never expected.
Our Two Cents:
The plot sounded so cute. We had high hopes. It wasn’t really bad, but partway through we realized, we were plain bored. The characters didn't have much personality and sadly, not enough chemistry. Sorry, a hot guy isn’t enough to make the movie.
Ironically this year had another movie about a professional personal shopper helping soften a uptight corporate exec. Check out A Gift Wrapped Christmas. It was much better.
