Kayla a writer is engaged to the man of her “dreams” until she gets kissed in the elevator by her engagement party caterer. Starring Karissa Lee Staples, Brant Daugherty, David O’Donnell, Doris Roberts.
This isn’t one of the worst made-for-TV Christmas films of the season, but it isn’t the best either. I enjoyed O’Donnell as the overbearing fiancé. I almost thought in the beginning of the film that the filmmakers would think outside the box and make him realize what a wonderful woman he had and change his ways. Alas, they did not.
They made him more of a jerk than he needed to be, and they rushed the relationship between Kayla and the caterer. I thought the caterer should end up the cousin and not Kayla. In addition, the film seemed to drag along. Finally, there was the issue of Roberts’ character: why was she even in the film? Roberts was fine as an actress, but her character was non-essential.
As I said, not bad, but not great. O’Donnell was definitely the only highlight, and because I personally enjoy all of the work I’ve seen him in, I will say that, for him alone, this movie is worth a watch.
