      dannyml1993 ABC Family was one of my favorite channels growing up and they had the best original movies. I am also a fan of Nick Zano and think this is a cute romantic tv movie. The movie follows Jennifer the manager of a mall that is in decline trying to save it as well as get promoted to corporate. Jennifer and her friend Marissa are talking and together come up with the idea for a sexy Santa contest to help get shoppers in the door and boost business. David enters the competition to help save his family's business but due to an earlier encounter with Jennifer that was less than ideal feels he doesn't stand a chance. Despite Jennifer not liking David he manages to win the competition. Now he and Jennifer has to work side by side as they both try to save something important to them as well as try to get along with one another. The plot is nothing new but it is a fun feel-good romantic comedy that I would highly recommend. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/01/23 Full Review Justin T Even corporate hussy can find love on Christmas. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/25/21 Full Review Audience Member Standard holiday fare on ABC Family (now Freeform). Jennifer Walters (Laura Vandervoot) is a young executive running a mall which she is trying to save comes up with a contest to save the mall. She hires David Moretti (Nick Zano) who wins a "Hunky Santa" contest to try to save it. While Zano is a solid actor who shows emotion, this has not been a strength of Vandervoot in the past. She probably shows more in this tv movie than she has in the past, but at times emotion is missing from scenes that should have them. They are both very good looking and Zano in particular shows off his dancing ability with a cast hired to dance, but the ending is totally anticipated and there is no surprise. Overall if you want a harmless holiday movie this is one to watch on Netflix. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Cute cheesy Christmas romantic comedy Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member actually really stupid Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a predictable, yet sweet, holiday story. I am glad that things turned out the way they did and that the big corporation got shut down for their misdeeds. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
