Can Anyone really “spoil” a Hallmark Christmas Movie?
Ok, so Kelly Pickler may not be the best actress in the world, but I found her very appealing in this role. For some reason her authentic southern accent really captured me. I wish these Hallmark make-up artists would realize that their victims, oops, clients, are not contestants in a beauty pageant. I prefer the natural girl next door look, not the look of someone that is trying to sell cosmetics behind a counter in a department store. Geez, tone it down. It’s like they are trying to hide something. She seems like a very nice person, and that came across in her role. Wes Brown is one of my favorite Hallmark heroes, so this is another factor that boosted my rating. I also liked the little girl. All three are very talented singers. Of course the plot was pretty standard stuff. No surprises there. And I wish that we would have had some closure with her boss as it was his fault the business deal fell through, and I hate that she got the blame for it. this was directed by Eric Close, best known as an actor. I like to see familiar faces branching out. **6 out of 10 stars**
