When I saw the guardian angel appear I started wondering if Hallmark is trying to recreate the old Max movies from yesteryear, starring the charismatic Peter Falk.
If they did, they failed.
(With "Max movies" I mean the movies where Peter Falk plays the angel Max, like "Finding John Christmas (2003)" and "a Town Without Christmas (2001)")
The tone of the Max movies was more serious, the scripts better.
This was more a run of the mill Hallmark romcom.
Honestly, the whole angel bit could have easily been left out because it really doesn't add very much.
The movie was okay though, as with most Hallmark movies, you could see the end coming from miles away.
Also, the ongoing theme in these movies of characters jumping to conclusions about each other half way trough the movie is a bit outdated.
If you (partially) overhear or see something in the real world that gives you doubts about someone you talk to them about it, right?
I had fun none the less, just don't go in expecting a masterpiece.
This was one of the many many Hallmark movies this year.
It seems they are gearing up towards year round movie production, taking all major holidays (and even seasons) as an excuse to spit out more movies.
I don't mind, the more the merrier, as long as the quality doesn't suffer too much, which it sometimes does.
Some actors and script just aren't that great or original.
I wish they brought back Holly Marie Combs this year, she is so lovely.
I loved Elizabeth Mitchell this year in "The Christmas Club", the soft, loveable, fun type suits her!
I think Paul Campbell (read his bio on imdb, lol) was miscast this year, I love seeing him in roles that fit his own personality, like the role of Gridley in "Surprised by Love (2015)".
Danica McKellar is always hit or miss for me, she is great in movies like "Love at the Christmas Table (2012)" but a lot of the roles Hallmark writes for her are too shallow, or just don't fit her, the same goes for Lacey Chabert.
Rachel Boston, Brooke D'Orsay, Fiona Gubelmann and Rachael Leigh Cook are fun most of the time because they just light up a room.
