In Bottom half of the ION Christmas films
27 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First, we all can agree that the Hallmark / ION Christmas films are pretty much the same theme, although wrapped around different stories: a cute guy and a pretty girl overcome obstacles and find true love.

This film has one variance: there are two cute girls who need love, and one, unfortunately, is dead. I kept wondering how odd it is that the cute girl can't find a guy at the end, but then she, like Clarence, brings two others together to "get her wings."

There is a nice, emotional twist at the end. I will ignore that to get to the point here, which is that this is slower and less energetic than most of these cheesy Christmas films (all of which I watch each year and all of which I am glad I watch). The acting is not up to the level of most of the others (with some exceptions, especially Perkins, Liburd and Gort, each of whom overcome some really cheesy lines).

If you just want a time-consuming Christmas film, then this one fits the bill. IF you are looking for one of the better films in this series, I suggest "Christmas in Vermont" or "Christmas Kiss."
