Charming Christmas

A review gives the movie 7 out of 10 for the rating points. The story is considered to be light-hearted and it can really warm the heart without going into the over-saccharine territory. The acting is well above average, with Benz being very engaging once her character became easier to warm to and expressive. Every bit as good is charming David Sutcliffe and the two have genuine and natural chemistry together. The two characters actually grow, Benz’s character does become easier to warm to and Sutcliffe’s is not too perfect too early. The supporting cast is also good.

Another person doesn’t hesitate to give Charming Christmas 10 out of 10 for the rating points. “I am not unfamiliar to Hallmark Christmas Movies. And as I started this movie I first thought Julie Benz was miscast. I’m sorry but I thought ‘she’s too old’ or ‘not warm enough’. But I kept watching and yes it is formulamatic Hallmark. Yes it tugs at your heartstrings as should! But early on Julie Benz won me over.”

Another audience says: “Julie Benz is about 43 in this movie playing a 30-ish Meridith, but it was just fine. David Sutcliffe as Nick is about 46 and I didn’t realize it was him playing Rory’s dad on the Gilmore girls about 10 years prior. Julie and David were great together. The kid was also great.”
