    The Road to Christmas spoils realism in the name of empty dramatic devices. Jennifer Grey is fine, but sad to say the lead actor here shows about as much charm as a bent nail. The more Jennifer Grey seemed to like the leading man, the more sorry I felt for her.

    The outdoor photography was appreciated. And the story concept, even if a bit familiar (50% PLAINS TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES, and 50% standard boy-meets-girl), could have been fun to watch if there was more simple realism and charm. I give this made-for-TV movie a 50% rating. There are many better made-for-TV romance movies than this one.
