At about 1:09, the exterior shot of the house shows that it is literally "blanketed" in snow...fake snow. The wind blows and noticeably flips up two sections of fabric that are hanging over the edge of the second story roofline. Right when it happens, the camera angle very abruptly shifts down to the first level. See more »
A waste of a good idea.
This one was a pretty solid effort which kept my interest. it was somewhat multifaceted with some interesting corporate politics along with the usual city girl v. small town Christmas. I liked the pairing of Lacey Chabert with Brendan Penny. Lacey is a solid actress, and with this one, she seems to have tamed, a bit, her nervous giggle tick that she seems to have developed in later years. I liked her family, especially Sherry, who was one of the stars in one of my favorite Hallmark-like romances, This Matter of Marriage, which was actually produced by Harlequin. It was great to see her again. This one did feature the usual boring boyfriend, but it was refreshing that she really just let him go and didn't hem and haw about it.
Like another Hallmark movie this year, I think it is pretty shameless to try to reel in Jane Austen fans, with the title of the movie, while not incorporating any of the themes in the actual plot or character. It's too bad, because the role reversal of the heroine taking the Darcy role, and the hero taking the Elizabeth Bennett role could have been great. i don't recall that that gimmick has ever been done before. Would have been pretty interesting.
