Like the inevitable character in a third of Hallmark Channel Christmas movies, I fear I have lost “The Christmas Spirit.” In hopes of finding it, I will be watching a ridiculous number of Christmas movies on TV. Here is my story…
A Dream of Christmas (2016) Hallmark Channel
-A HILARIOUSLY photoshopped picture of the main characters wearing sweaters while “in” the African savannah.
-A still adorable Cindy Williams!
-A relationship (and therefore a movie plot) based on a lack of communication. Great!
-A wildlife photographer who is somehow surprised by the migration patterns of the animal he’s trying to photograph?
-A romantic interest who would only be described as “a very handsome man” if he were in a porno (read: he looks like an aggressively low budget, jacked up Frankenstein).
-Sort of slow and quiet, but surprisingly good. Definitely one of the better films of the genre.
