      Audience Member Predictable and over complicated. There were way too many plot twists all revealed at the end and so many boring, predictable side stories that tried to get me to like these one-sided boring stereotypes that are the main characters. It also ends on a cringey dance scene at the end, and some main story elements just don't make sense. Like how the boys cant go to school but somehow the poor family lives in this beautiful house with amazing decorations. Mainly it was just boring though. Cleary was made to be played in the background during a Christmas party. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member a little better than a Hallmark movie Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Predictable. Uninteresting. Corny but not in a good way. Presents itself as family friendly but then ends with an adulterous couple reuniting and joining their families, while shunning the wife (who was legitimately nasty but still). Only person of color is the maid. Need I say more? Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member We watched this movie with our 12-year old daughter, and while it kept us entertained, the plot was very predictable. Our biggest disappointment though was the extremely non-diverse cast. Although VT and OK, the two states where this story takes place, are not know for having a lot of ethnic diversity, literally the ONLY non-white character in the film was the housemaid. This huge lack of representation left us with a bad taste. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Found this on Amazon prime last night. Almost didn't watch because it was marked TV-MA. I didn't a little research and saw it was a family friendly movie, and it was just a mistake on the rating. I love that it was set in the adorable town of Guthrie, Oklahoma. I recognized many spots. Very wholesome movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Iï¿ 1/2 1/2 1/2 1/2 1/2 1/2 1/2 1/2 1/2 1/2(TM)ve seen this movie three times now and always have found it very good. I love the good family vs bad family angle. As so many families have turmoil within them. Yet st holiday time they seem to always resolve themselves. This movie did not let me down. I own it and will watch it more than once a year. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Read all reviews
