Here are some of the subtle clues and double-entendres that make Zachary very reminiscent of Superman: . Camera angle makes it appear like he has a cape floating about him when he's scrutinizing the paint on the wall. . When he unzips at the end, as he decidedly walks toward the camera. . He didn't lie. . Mistletoe is his kryptonite. . Certain otherworldly stares as the camera closes in on his eyes. . When he rushes to save Marilee from the shopping cart careening her way. . When Marilee tells him "you're a hero", referring to his being a fireman. . When he says: "I'm not at all what I seem." . When Sarah tells Marilee: "How many more clues do you need?" See more »
In the final scene the position of Marilee's hair changes depending on the camera angle. In camera shots looking over her shoulder at his face it is tucked behind her ears, but in shots looking over his shoulder at her face it is hanging down in front of her ears. See more »
Even as the plot set-up was unfolding, I knew it would be a Happily Ever After story-- is there any other kind of Hallmark Christmas story? What I didn't expect, whoever, was to find the script full of wry humor and gentle mocking. The emotional tone was low-key and no one overacted. Kimberley Sustads' warm and slightly ditzy character was within the range of believability and Brandon Routh's characterization of a reluctant firefighter gradually falling in love was also in keeping with the movie. The guys in the fire station were a little too perfect, but were still the kind of men we'd like for fathers or brothers. The movie was a bit too slowly paced and could have used about half an hour's worth of editing, but was overall a satisfying watch.
