Most reviews I'm reading are complaining about headshots (particularly Mariah ones) but I can honestly say I didn't find it distracting. I thought the film had a warm fuzzy feeling and cuteness to it particularly the Emily character played by Fina Strazza. Many scenes felt magical and ultimately fairy tale like from the perspective of a child. Mariah was like a irritating pantomime villain and I think she was supposed to be. Lacey Chabert plays our main protagonist Kristin Parson, she was a likeable character, kind hearted and wants what's best for her daughter. The plot is simple and predictable but most Christmas films are. It's an easy watch no Christmas classic but a cheesy fun Fest to kick back and relax with. A light-hearted romcom.
