The Christmas Train (2017) Hallmark Channel

 

Includes:

-A main character who is a man.  This is actually a new twist.

-Dermot Mulroney, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Danny Glover, & Joan Cusack.  At least the acting will be good.

-The moniker “Hall of Fame, our tradition of excellence,” because they know that YOU KNOW they can only afford to make ONE good movie a year.

-A cocktail called “The Grinch” that is either water or straight vodka.  Either way, I wouldn’t trust the bartender on that train.

 

Review:

Another case of the main characters who do very little to move the story forward.  But this movie is based on a book, so at least the story is thought-out & coherent.  (This also explains the lack of comically bad tropes.)
