Looks Like Christmas (2016 Hallmark Channel)


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.

Listen to the Lifetime Uncorked Podcast! 


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!

Looks Like Christmas 
Starring: Anne Heche (She dated Ellen!) Dylan Neal (you’d recognize his face, maybe not with all the Botox tho!)

When two single parents (Carol is type A and Terry type B) battle it out for control of the Christmas holiday at their kid’s middle school, they get more than they bargained for when they learn a little something about the true meaning of Christmas, while opening themselves up for the possibility of a new romance.

Who likes Anne Heche? I spent most of the late 90’s thinking she was Darma, from Darma and Greg. Then I found out she was dating Ellen and I figured I should like her more? I accepted her in I Know What You Did Last Summer, and even in the pointless Psycho remake. This is where I draw my line. Stay away from Hallmark Movies, Anne!!!

“Christmas Carol” is the queen bee of her PTA, then Terry comes a long and ruins everything. He does so by being the exact opposite of her in every way! I began to question my personality type, because I was siding with Carol more than Terry. Am I type A or is Terry just a jerk? Anyway, they team up to produce the lamest Christmas Pageant EVER!!!! Seriously it is just Terry’s daughter reciting “‘Twas the night before Christmas” with a unicycling juggler and Hula hooping elf…. This magical event bring Carol and Terry together. They buy a house and all laugh on the porch. Thee end!

Side Note
Anne Heche’s haircut has not changed since 1999

Terry was the rare widower that garnered no sympathy from me! Widower FAIL!
