Dashing Through the Snow

Stranded at an airport at Christmastime, Ashley Harrison accepts a ride from Dash Sutherland, who has just rented the last car in town. As the pair heads north, their adventures include car trouble, adopting a puppy and being secretly tailed by federal agents, who believe Ashley is up to no good. With a hint of romance gradually filling the air will these two fall in love or will their journey bring about an unexpected road bump to romance? 

Our Two Cents:
Our 10 year old niece perfectly summed up one of our biggest problems with this one in three words: She was weird. 

We feel like the writers kind of stretched to make some things work in this one that could have easily worked out better with minor changes in the story. 

She used a brown scarf to try to bribe her way onto a flight. I get that it's pure angora wool, but it was brown. At least try to bribe the lady with a better color. Thankfully as the movie progresses she tones down a bit because her over the top enthusiasm and weirdness was a bit much.

The movie does have some cute moments. Enough to make up for the stuff that didn't work so well we think. Love the references to It Happened One Night. Great movie. The original source of many movie cliches especially including the stuck traveling with someone I hate and have to fake being married/in a relationship so we can share the last hotel room and get a good night sleep and then oops we fall in love for realsies bit.
