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!
Sound of Christmas
Starring: Lindy Booth & Robin Dunne (Very Canadian name, eh?)
Lizzie (Not McGuire) a young piano teacher, helps Brad’s teenage daughter learn music. As she begins to break through to the girl, sparks begin to fly with Brad, but she is shocked to find out that he may want to buy the school’s property.
Lizzie is a piano teacher, who doesn’t want you to watch her play. (She has stage fright) She meets Brad at a Christmas tree place (If you single, seems like the place to pick up widowers!) and eventually starts teaching his daughter piano.
Brad works at a development firm and they are planning on tearing down the school Lizzie works at! Once she finds out she is on a mission to save her school and stop liking Brad. But he can’t help falling for her! (She IS helping his daughter learn piano!)
Cynthia is Brad’s co-worker, and man she is thirsty. She bring wine to meetings, hints about needing a date to the office party, and gossips to her coworkers! She is the worst. When Brad invites Lizzie to the office holiday party instead of Cynthia, she goes off the rails and makes sure that school WILL close! If she can’t have Brad, the Lizzie can’t have him, or the music school.
Cynthia’s plan goes awry, when the big boss of the firm attends the school Christmas recital. His dad has a touching speech dedicating the song to big bosses dead mother. (The Dad plays the piano like Stevie Wonder, when he is really into it!) This display of affection warms the big bosses heart and saves the school! Yay?
This movie has lots of extended scenes of people fake playing the piano (and other instruments)…. like really extended. Maybe, 20/30 minutes worth.
Make up & lighting made everyone look like they had Jandus.
The leads in this one were both cute and capable actors.
