Andrew Walker is The Christmas King
21 January 2018 | by Christmas-ReviewerSee all my reviews

Review Date 1/21/2018

PLEASE BEWARE OF SOME REVIEWERS THAT ONLY HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW. WHEN ITS A POSITIVE THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. NOW I HAVE NO AGENDA! I REVIEW MOVIES & SPECIALS AS A WAY TO KEEP TRACK OF WHAT I HAVE SEEN! I HAVE DISCOVERED MANY GEMS IN MY QUEST TO SEE AS MANY " C H R I S T M A S " MOVIES AS I CAN.

Now Someone keeps reporting my reviews. I guess they are jealous because I do tell the truth. I want to point out that I never make snide remarks about actors weight or real life sexual orientation. If there acting is terrible or limited "I talk about that". If a story is bad "I will mention that" So why am I being "picked on"? IMDB? When one of my reviews gets deleted IMDB will not even tell me what someone found offensive. Well on to this review.

Hallmark Movies Christmas seem to steel stories from theatrical films. Not just "A Christmas Carol" but there have been "Hallmark Christmas Spins" on "Groundhog Day", "Green Card", & "Runaway Bride". This film they just rip-off the Granddaddy of all Christmas Movies "It's a Wonderful Life"

The story for this is about When a restless young married woman is granted a wish by a Christmas Angel to be single again, she soon discovers her new life isn't what she bargained for, and embarks on a quest to win her husband back.

Now this isn't a bad film. It just not very original. I have a little crush on Andrew Walker so when he is on the screen the film clicks better.

Now as for the other cast members they all are fine and service the material they were provided.

There is however a "Nasty Hidden Message" that women are not happy unless they have "A husband and children".

This film is for the romantic types. If you don't like romance you may not like this. I found the film "Enjoyable"
