Christine S Kat barrell shines in anything she acts in and this movie is no different. The movie was light and entertaining just as christmas movies should be. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/11/24 Full Review Christin B Her parents in the movie are so annoying! I'm sure that is the character aspect, but it is dumb. Overall, there are much better holiday TV movies out there. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/20/23 Full Review Audience Member I don't understand any of the lighting (?) problems that "Steve C" seemed to have with this movie--some wanna be director who can't get hired, I guess? No body in our house had a problem with any of how the movie looked! We Loved seeing Kat Farrell in this and enjoyed it alot. Watched it again because I think I missed some little hints about the Sliding Doors (like the Santa Klaus at the airport, I get that now!). But you don't need to watch it twice to get it if you are paying attention (my daughter is 11 and she understood it!). Good movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Steve C This movie has the distinction of possibly being the worst Hallmark film of the decade. The entire premise of "Two Christmases" with the same cast, is not only confusing but poorly written. Additionally, the lighting, scene transitions (using wipe transitions straight out of mom's 1980's Handycam) and color balancing is horrible. The opening scene is so poorly lit (appears to have no lighting whatsoever) that the two actors in the scene are actually red, is a telltale sign of poor production value to come. At the one hour mark, a home-party set, it again appears that the DP used the same lighting (or lack thereof) to shoot a major scene in the move where everyone is orange/red and, again, not worthy of a student project. At the 1:05 mark, nothing is in focus. Not the set, the talent or ... anything. This scene should have been reshot as soon as a playback was done and the poor quality was observed. The majority of the movie has the talent in shadow (unlit) while the background is 2+ stops brighter. If this was turned in to me for a high-school film project the students would get a D-. I'm not sure what Hallmark is trying to do this Christmas but, if it they are trying to turn away most of their loyal fan base, they are hitting the mark.
