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…
Dear Secret Santa (2013) Lifetime
-Tatiana Ali, Jordin Sparks, Ernie Hudson, Lamorne Morris, Bill Cobbs, & Della Reese (RIP). There’s no way this movie can be bad.
-Wow, only two minutes in and the main character’s dad has already fallen. That was quick.
-An “old” picture of Tatiana Ali where she is dressed in pigtails and a sweater in order to look like her teenage self. I’m sorry, no one could find a real photo of her as a teen? Because everyone who owned a TV in the 90s finds that hard to believe.
-A mail man who is a dick. Yep, checks out.
-“P.S.: I’m curious. How long have you been interested in me?” Everything was perfect until that line.
-If I took a drink each time someone said, “If only you knew…” I would be DRUNK.
-Oh, no. A Chinese investor just quoted “an old Chines proverb” to the main character.
Yes. Watch this movie.
