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…
My Christmas Dream (2016) Hallmark Channel
-The classic movie intro of a radio DJ giving the weather report (“Good morning from the North Pole, or at least it looks like it.”) and then playing a generic version of a “modern” Christmas carol.
-A store manager who has to create the most amazing window display EVER to get a promotion. Those are not the same job, & she is not good at it at all. If this dude has to “help” her with it (read: do literally everything, including coming up with the idea), then this better end with him getting the job.
-That dude whose supposed to get her a promotion, his “super great” decorations for his own house are… ::drumroll please:: just regular lights. Ya know, like, along the gutters & around the window.
-The most HILARIOUS scene of this dude “sketching” his display out, & because this actor has no fucking clue how to draw like “an artist,” he just squiggles over an already drawn snowman stick figure.
-Woman: “You’re my boss, & you’re also my friend… and I’ve been doing all your work in addition to my own.”
Main character: “I’m so sorry. Now let’s go, we’ve got work to do!”
This is becoming a trend. Girl doesn’t deserve this promotion.
This one had a few surprises and was a little more original than most. However, it was also pretty boring in the middle & very frustrating.
