Trivia

Various character names were taken from individuals involved with filming. For example, General Hatcher's first name, Gentry, was taken from the name of Andersen AFB's commander during filming, BG Gentry Boswell. Sunshine's last name in the film, Droz, came from 1st AD Alexia Droz. And the character Travis was named for the film's principal military advisor, Travis Schirner. See more »

Goofs

Andersen AFB is probably THE most strategic military base in the entire Pacific theater. It is a forward operating base for airlift, cargo, bomber, and fighter aircraft for all of the pacific area of operation and into the middle-east. It would be wildly unrealistic that it would ever be considered for closure under BRAC. See more »

Light Hearted but Dull and Slow
7 November 2020 | by melibee-25098See all my reviews

This movie wants to come off as a Christmas Romance movie, but it never really gives time to develop the two main characters "relationship", until the very end with a stereotypical kiss ending which feels weird because to the audience the two main characters just feel like new friends instead of love interests. It seems to develop a good friendship between an Air Force Captain and a Congress Aid/Assistant. Together they spread the Christmas spirit and generosity with the help of the service men and woman of the American Air Force. The movie is slow and predictable and feels like it wants to be a lifetime movie or a Christian movie. The "lovers plot" is uninteresting.
