Trivia

To get the electric chemistry between the leads, they went away together for a week of bonding. Unfortunately Vanessa Hudgens couldn't make it, so it was just Josh Whitehouse and his horse. See more »

cliche & feel good
21 November 2019 | by iDaanieSee all my reviews

Very cliche Christmas film but it will make you feel good inside.The actors were likeable but I felt that none of it was very realistic, but then again, romance never really is. Moreover, with Christmas coming up I think it would be nice to have more romance films like this. I just wish this film was a little more thought out.
