I like trashy films and I will not lie.
When I saw the poster, I judged this movie hard, and thought I'd hate it. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised. A Hallmark movie with singing where they can actually sing? Huh.
I liked the story, and thought the leads had good chemistry. It made me laugh, my heart felt all cozy, and the singing didn't make my ears bleed. I don't ask for much more than that.
Luke Macfarlane is cute enough. Why do you have to give him a fake accent that he can't maintain through the movie, and make him sing?
With that aside, I really liked this one. I thought the romance was unnecessary, and that it would have been better if the two leads had just become close friends who helped each other.
Christmas in My Heart deals with some heavier issues in life, and as a result has more substance than the typical Hallmark fare. Sheryl Lee Ralph is great as the grandmother, and really, they need to be casting her in more stuff. She's a gem.
I can’t believe how much they changed the ACTUAL story.
1. The real guy wasn’t a cop.
2. The real girl did get shot (twice in the head) and survive. She did not get up and kill her attacker or magically heal. She survived 4 days before rescuers were led to her location, in a ditch.
2a. She died a year later in a car crash.
3. Her ex felt guilty and turned himself into the police. He’s now in jail.
The real story is sadder and more compelling than this load of crap.
Nine million terrorists in the world and I gotta kill one with feet smaller than my sister.
My guy and I set out the other day to prove a popular opinion about this film wrong: that it's a Christmas film. Sure there is talk of chestnuts and Santa with a decked out Christmas tree visible in the background. I was still not convinced and it was going to take a lot more than the tough but every day cop, McClane,…
