Spoonatects Am i the only one who thinks........Average?
Humaira Grant It’s not bad or unwatchable but despite the amplitude of the spectacle, the end result is underwhelming.
Guillelmina The film's masterful storytelling did its job. The message was clear. No need to overdo.
zyxnix At first this movie was heading in the wrong direction....but it does come around to being likable. Alexa Panvega is super hot...but not on the same level as Chelsie Hightower. Hightower makes the movie for me. Blonde in a leather jacket...Boom! I kept wondering how is a fountain working in the winter time?
Jack Vasen I have tagged this with spoilers, but I really don't think I give anything significant away.Let's see what usual themes do we have? Laura comes back to her home town where she hasn't been in years. She runs into Ricardo who was kind of an old boyfriend. She has an impossible assignment to complete in too little time. Although not clear at the beginning, apparently her job is at stake. She already has a boyfriend back at the office and he shows up awkwardly. She has a kid who believes in Santa (and she wants snow from Santa). They have a traditional icon in the form of the hotel's fountain.What's different? Not a lot and the things that are a little different have been done before. They dance a lot. Instead of a contest to win, there is a dance finale to prepare for.For actors that are married to each other, I would have expected more chemistry, but they are comfortable together. Part of the lack of chemistry is a shortage of chances to dialogue between them. There were obviously some, but much of their time together was either not very romantic, or was dancing. As in many Christmas stories with kids, Nikki is a factor in bringing them together. Jaynee-Lynne Kinchen is cute but she does almost seem like a 30 year-old in a 9 year-old body, but I think that is part of the story.The act put on by the kids was pretty good, more than a school pageant. Same with the lovers dancing - it included some flashy and slightly difficult moves.The ending is predictable, although there were two small things that could have gone differently.
vriddheeg see my review herealittleofallblog.wordpress.com/2017/11/15/enchanted-christmas/i hated this movie, super boring! there was no chemistry between the lead couple who are married in real life.the setting was okay but it just lacked the holiday spirit. after quite a few good ones, this one just did not reach the mark,.
jonathanrspalding I was a fan of the TV show big time rush so I was looking forward to this movie. I was not disappointed.I think four factors influence the quality of the Halmark Christmas movie.Was the romance believable? I thought it was here without any huge does of melodrama.Did it relate to Christmas? I thought the movie was very well done visually and I thought it had some nice family and tradition themes as well. The kid and kids were cute too, so that has to count for something. (the kid also was not really the matchmaker which I enjoyed because I find that plot creepy generally) What about the minor characters and subplots? Not many subplots here, but I thought the bit parts were well played and added to the movie.Four, was it funny? Not so much. It was sweet in parts but not really funny.So all told I felt it was a better than average Hallmark Christmas movie.
