CME – Movie #22 – Broadcasting Christmas

December 8, 2016

So we had a power outage. Earlier this year a prior outage killed my wife’s computer. So we hurriedly unplugged all our devices. Power came back almost 3 hours later. I go to turn my computer on… Long story short, it’s fried. *sob* So I took a day off to mourn as I really didn’t feel Christmas.

However we’re BACK! And this time with another Hallmance (I imagine from the plot) called Broadcasting Christmas. The plot is thusly: TV host quits. Replacement sought. Four contenders. Shenanigans ensue.

Clarissa and Superman! (Melissa Joan Hart and Dean Cain)

Who puts decorations in their bathroom?!?!

This is a fun movie. Cain and Hart have great chemistry together and to be quite honest this plays more like a big screen romantic comedy than a standard Christmas movie. One of the rivals, you expect her to be the fly in the ointment, but she’s written out quite early on.

There’s very little cliche in this movie. It’s a nice little romp around New York at Christmas. The Christmas content isn’t huge, but it’s there…

We’ve had a run of good movies lately, and this continues it. If you have Hallmark in the US, or Super Channel in Canada, this is a new movie this year, and it’s well worth settling down with some egg nog and enjoying the ride.

It’s also quite funny in spots, especially the lady with the hundred year old fruit cake and how she refers to Dean.
