| Deck The Halls With Lauren Holly
If you are a sucker for schmaltzy tearjerkers, then this TV movie might be for you.

A family traveling through the mountains gets stranded just before Christmas in a town called Nowhere is that located, well, in the middle of nowhere.

It's one of those towns of broken dreams, where most of the downtown storefronts are boarded up and there are no prospects because the local industry---in this case a coal mine---shut down years ago. What is left of the population is depressed and hopeless.

But when the Bensons arrive in Nowhere, they meet Samantha Bee (Stephanie Belding), owner of the Bee Hive Café and one of the few residents left with any Christmas spirit. She is determined to put on a Christmas pageant.

The story is about the transformational power of hope, which is a Christmas staple. The writing is average and most of the plot points can be seen well in advance of their arrival. But real softies might still be drawn into the spunk and pluck of this lightweight fare.
