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.

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.
