A huge disappointment
22 December 2011 | by vixbelleSee all my reviews

As you read this, keep in mind that I'm not a professional critic! But I felt the need to drop in because this movie was so bad, I didn't want others to fall victim to it. And I hold Christmas movies sacred, an integral part of my Christmas cheer.

I haven't read any of Mary or Carol Higgins Clarks' books, but this was so predictable, boring, meagerly acted... Yes, it's a great cast. If it weren't for the cast (minus the lead, Regan, who seems to not be able to move her face), I would have turned it off (I barely ever walk out on a movie). I think it was more the script and plot that caused the poor acting, rather than the actors themselves.

I was bored, I was annoyed by the clichés, I was on pinterest and email b/c there's no other way I'd waste my whole 2 hours only on watching this movie. The movie has a promising plot and description, but delivery fell very very short.
