No Desperation Needed to Like this Movie
10 December 2018 | by geheweSee all my reviews

The Laura Vandervoort and Nick Zano starring characters were excellent. The "Sexy Santa" contest was a creative way to get some great humor and fun dancing into the movie. There was a part near the end where two of the male minor characters set up a date together. This was awkward and was not needed at all. It is small and would not detract from the family watching.
