Storyline

Randomly meeting at a store return counter introduces Sloane to Jackson. Both tired of nightmare dates (him) and meddling family (her) during the holidays, they strike an arrangement, whereby they meet as a couple only during the holidays to make life at the very least tolerable. Slowly, so slowly, while scoffing at the cliches of romance (and to their surprise), their relationship grows into something deeper. Written by statmanjeff

Trivia

The "Lester" ventriloquist doll that Sloane refers to (briefly seen in the ceiling fan at her apartment) was based on Willie Tyler's main ventriloquist dummy, Lester. Although the toy version of Lester can still be purchased, it was particularly popular in the 1970s and 1980s, as sold through retailers like Sears. See more »

Yes it's cliché but really fun
30 November 2020 | by tygertygerburningbrightSee all my reviews

I wouldn't think I'd like it so much because it's a kinda cheesy rom-com but it made me feel good. Might be about the holidays. There were some hilarious moments too. Definitely worth watching.
