I am going to be very bold and say that this is the best Hallmark Christmas movie of the year. And I know we are only half way through. This movie is everything! First of all, I haven’t seen a movie with Nikki Deloach that I have not liked. One of her other Christmas movies, A Dream of Christmas, is also one of my favorites.
What I liked about this movie is that is was so realistic. It was about a girl who brings her boyfriend home for Christmas. She ends up getting engaged and has a fear about things moving too fast and getting married before she is ready, and she has had some experiences in her past that have also caused her to be a little cautious. That is so applicable to almost every person, which I think means a lot to viewers, when they can relate to the movie.
Her fiance is very understanding and they both are mature about it. They work it out together and in the end (after some heart to heart’s with her family) she realizes how to replace faith with fear. I love that they didn’t have a big misunderstanding (as most Hallmark’s typically do) and you could tell that they both really cared about each other and genuinely wanted it to work out. In the end, it was so touching! You must watch it for yourself, you will not be disappointed.
Another positive from the movie is that the acting was so well done for every character. Nikki was fantastic and so was Mike Faiola, one of the best pairings Hallmark has ever done.
If you can’t tell, this is one of my all time favorite Hallmark movies ever! 9.8 out of 10 people!
