Help for the Holidays (2012) Hallmark Channel

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…


Help for the Holidays (2012) Hallmark Channel

-An elf ear reveal

-Adam’s realization that all of his favorite sci-fi actors are now working pretty exclusively in the made-for-TV holiday romance movie business

-Dare I say good acting all around?  Including the children.

-A love interest who is ACTUALLY nice and adorable! (Honestly, John Brotherton is so charming in everything.)

-A sassy, difficult, smart-ass 12 year-old girl, with whom I identify deeply and therefore love.

-Not one, but two Christmas decorating montages!

-A mean dance teacher who straight up tells a child she can’t dance.  The whole exchange was truly hilarious.

-Santa giving an elf a speech about her having her own autonomy.



I am so on board for this movie.  Highly recommended.
