      Audience Member This film is jolly rotten. The dialogue is mundane, the story is non-existent and the direction and cast is like a 12 year old playing with iMovie. I was simply stunned that a Tv-channel can send this pretending to be a movie. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member A few moments really made me roll me eyes - but on the whole a nice Christmas movie. Bonus points if you know what previous works you have seen Erin Gray in. I spent a good majority of the film wondering where I knew her from! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Not one of my favorite Hallmark Christmas movies... Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member With a Christmas film, you want it to be something for the whole family. While this movie is centered around a newlywed couple and family struggles, it still retains a "G" rating while being enjoyable for adults as well. The cast is lead by Susie Abromeit and Dillon Casey as Mr. and Mrs. Faber. The two are hiding something from one another. Cynthia is pregnant while Steve is fired. The very beginning establishes they are the type of people to plan things ahead, financially and otherwise. They have their entire lives planned to a "t" as to when they have accomplished certain milestones including promotions and children. Naturally, this is too soon for Cynthia to become pregnant and Steve getting fired clearly planned to advance to partner with the firm he was working with. Meanwhile, Patricia (Steve's mother) seems to have a large influence on Cynthia's decisions. She appears to be a tough and domineering woman with a judgmental persona. There are three major disasters caused by Cynthia: she forgets to pack an important suitcase (filled with sweaters for the whole family Patricia knitted herself), cancelled a reservation for her hotel room (as well as one for her brother-in-law), and finally she hits her with a large snowball. Steve's boss offers him his job back and offers to help him reach his goal faster if Steve will just do the one job Steve would not do. This job involved taking down a small business-a restaurant run by a man Steve knows to be a good person, who happens to be against the interests of one of his employers' best clients. Soon, almost all of the family finds their way into the Faber household - Steve's brother (and his wife & kids) and Mother as well as Cynthia's father and sister. Behind their backs, the family informs one another of Cynthia and Steve's secrets. Steve told his brother, who relayed this to the others as Patricia simply knew by seeing Cynthia's behavior. Eventually, Steve and Cynthia break their news to one another and (like most family films, especially holiday ones) they all live happily ever after.
