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.

Sometimes, life just seems to hand you exactly what you need –
particularly at Christmastime. In this new yuletide tale, Riley is
scraping bottom when she miraculously lands a job with a wealthy New
York City entrepreneur. He’s a bad-boy socialite type who is poised to
play Scrooge by closing one of his factories just before Christmas,
which would devastate and entire town. It’s left to Riley to talk him
out of it and turn him into a man of virtue rather than shame. But will a
case of mistaken identity ruin the whole plan?
Our Two Cents:
Three times we tried to record this. Though the schedule said Christmas Incorporated, it played a different movie two times! But third time was the charm. And it was worth the wait. Great banter and chemistry between Riley and William.
The end was a little rushed and abrupt, but… we can forgive that. Overall, thumbs up!
