A Bride for Christmas (Hallmark, 2012)
There is a lot of people you can live with. There is only one person you can’t live without.
Starring: Arielle Kebbel, Chelsey Reist, Andrew W. Walker, Sage Brocklebank
Plot Synopsis: After Jessie calls off her third engagement, she swears off serious relationships until he finds “the one.” That is, until charming but chronically single Aiden comes along. But unbeknownst to Jessie, Aiden has bet his friends that he can convince a woman to marry him by Christmas, which is only four weeks away. (x)
In My Humble Opinion: This movie took me two weeks to finish, because I got incredibly bored halfway through and stopped watching it to go hang out with people. For a film that’s supposed to be a mix of How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and Runaway Bride, taking place at Christmas, there is no semblance of charm or fun at all. Instead it’s all overwrought, overdone melodrama that really turns you off.
Watch If: If you know falling in love is like being in a crazy dream sequence, if you call your daughter “Bolt” because she loves to runaway from commitment, or if you can’t say no to a Jumbotron proposal.
Skip If: If you were cockblocked by a dog, if you once had an epic kiss and then weren’t called back the next day, or if you lost your car during a poker game to resolve love triangle tension.
