A New Low in Stupid
7 December 2015 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

A meteorite brings ice and freezing temperatures, which threatens to harm the residents of a small Montana town at Christmas.

It would be nice to be able to say good things about this film, but there really is nothing nice to say. The script is nonsense, the science completely made up (remember when SyFy had heart?) and none of the actors seem anything special. The romantic aspect is garbage, with two overall pale kids pretending to be cold... and not trying very hard, because the girl never even puts her hood up.

Someone thought they were being clever by naming the rival families Ratchet and Crooge, an obvious allusion to "A Christmas Carol". The head of the Crooge family is Ben, clearly a shortening of Ebenezer. But the problem is that the name "Crooge" sounds so forced coming out of the characters' mouths... there had to be a better way.
