Happy Christmas in July! I’m revisiting a series of reviews that were originally posted on social media and are now archived here on the blog.
Happy Holidays! I will be watching and “reviewing” 25 TV Christmas Movies, for the 25 days till Christmas! (Mostly Hallmark and a few other channels, but all will be 2016 releases.)
I’m watching them, so you don’t have to! If you have seen them, please share your thoughts and comments. I love/hate these movie, please join me this holiday season!
A Christmas to Remember
Starring: Mira Sorvino (Romy & Michelle) & Cameron Mathison (All My Children)
A harsh TV personality needs a break from her own life, so she hops into a car and drives to a small town mountain retreat. On her way there, a blizzard veers her off the road and she crashes. When she comes to, she has complete amnesia and a friendly passerby takes her in.
(Before I start, I’ll say what we are all thinking, Goldie did it better in Overboard!)
Martha Stewart wannabe, Jennifer Wade, has it all! A newscaster boyfriend named Brad, an assistant who dresses inappropriately causal, a minority BFF, and a dead mother. (Which is why she doesn’t like Christmas or the color GREEN!)
While driving at night in sunglasses, Jennifer swerves off the road and crashes her car. Hallmark must have spent a pretty penny on this crash scene because it looked pretty intense. Jennifer crawls out and wanders the on the road right into a cars path, she gets picked up by a mystery man and sits on his pie. (They bring it up a lot)
That man, John, is a widower AND a doctor… well a vet. He has three kids; one cute girl, one ugly girl, and a lesbian looking son. They take Jessica in to nurse her back to health. (She has no memory!)
Randomly, Jessica (Now Maggie) can whip up gourmet meals, say “green bean” in French and sew an elf costume. But, she can’t remember her name. Spending time with John and his family at Christmas time, they are starting to seem like a REAL family. Dare, I say a replacement for the dead mother???!!!
Then Brad (Greasy Boyfriend) and Paula (Minority BFF) crash the town Holiday party to bring Jessica/Maggie back to NYC. It’s not her scene anymore, so it’s back to Colorado for a Christmas she will never forget. Or a Christmas to remember
One of the daughters claims to be 4 (over and over) but she is clearly 9.
Cameron Mathison is still EXTREMELY hot.
I added a tree, because Rich cried.
