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 Gift to Remember (2017) Hallmark Channel
-A main character who works in a mom-&-pop bookstore and she’s named after a major literary character (of course)
-A couple of “friends” who seem to hate the main character/her hobbies/personality/preferences. Girl, those ain’t your friends. Run!
-The perfect pastel Pinterest-inspired apartment of a single millennial woman.
-A love interest who does, says, and is nothing (besides that thick head of black hair again)
-A coma/amnesia storyline! Hopefully when he wakes up, he will have developed a personality that didn’t exist before.
-An Italian chef named Luigi.
-A woman of color who is in more than one scene… who is definitely going to fall in love with Luigi.
-The main character even notes the “lack of personality” of the love interest’s apartment. Girl, you’re better than this! You’re a whole person without him, despite what your fake ass friends try to convince you of.
-A bunch of people not even trying to investigate who the fuck this man with no memory is. This is excruciating.
-The line: “I remember. I remember!”
No matter which Hallmark Holiday Bingo card you find online, you’re sure to get 5 in a row in the first 10 minutes of this movie.
They should make a movie starring the landlord. She was obviously the shining star of this movie.
