Cute Kellie and the Most Annoying Hallmark Mother Ever
No doubt we will see a lot of grouchyfaces bashing Kellie Pickler’s acting skills just like we did with her first foray into Hallmark land, the hugely popular Christmas at Graceland. Well I thought she was adorable in this one and the chemistry between her and Wes Brown was solid. She was cute, perky, cheerful, and authentic. She certainly has a lot more spark than most of the cookie-cutter Hallmark actresses. In this one, the couple have to deal with her cold sulky father and his overbearing steamroller of a mother who will stop at nothing to hijack the wedding. The plot is tension filled while we wait in vain for Kellie and Wes to put the parents in their place. This doesn’t happen, but they do realize the error of their ways eventually and all ends with a perfect wedding at Graceland. The lack of a huge telling off and catharsis knocks this down a bit, but all in all, this was better than the first one.
