Not a good message for girls and young women
29 November 2016 | by lesndonSee all my reviews

Very cute, but terrible ending. This woman made everything okedoke at the end by going back to her wimpy self, not speaking her mind, not standing up for herself. To make her man happy, she needed to endure abusive, demeaning comments from the man they were trying to get a contract with. She apologizes to him, goes to her man, he finds out she wimped out but got the contract, and he liked her again. No apology from the boyfriend. Bad Christmas movie. Bad. Not to mention appearing to leave out important parts.
