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…
Karen Kingsbury’s The Bridge Part 2 (2016) Hallmark Channel
-A year-long gap between these movies! If anyone watched the first one in 2015, they must have been sorely disappointed to realize they had to wait a year for the ending.
-A thunderstorm, which leads to a leak in the roof, so she yells, “Let’s call 911” ?!
-A couple of store owners who don’t have any insurance to cover the cost of their inventory?
-That commercial from the 90s for Liz Taylor’s White Diamonds, on what appears to be the quality of a VHS tape. Well, they certainly know their audience.
Well, one of the downsides of being based on a book is that all of the inciting action is two people talking. That’s fine when you’re reading, but on this new medium of moving pictures, it gets pretty boring.
