Storyline

Nikki Crandon is one of the biggest pop stars on the planet. Whether she's singing the National Anthem or promoting her latest album, everyone knows who she is-none more so than New Jersey high school basketball coach and widower Chris Mitchell, who was Nikki's first love in high school. When Chris' 10-year-old daughter Sophie finds out her dad still has feelings for the singer, she takes matters into her own hands. With her 8-year-old brother Jackson in tow, Sophie succeeds in reuniting the two. But when a misunderstanding and the growing glare of the public spotlight threaten Chris and Nikki's happiness, one can only wonder: will fame get in the way of a Merry Christmas?

A Good Movie to Catch for Christmas
1 December 2018 | by geheweSee all my reviews

I liked the movie. Steve Byers as the lead guy was great. He also played in Christmas Cure (2017) which I rated low as a 6. Also liked the girl who played his daughter. We had a few good songs like I hear the bells on Christmas day. Story had some depth to it. Remember the quote by the lead Shannon Elizabeth "Being famous hasn't changed who I am but it has changed how everyone treats me". Thought her performance was adequate if that was her singing- I liked that. I did not like the part of her male assistant Carmine in this movie. A strange character who was attracted to the Steve Byers character along with our female lead. Why put this character in the movie unless this is a part of stardom. It did not distract too much and wasn't so obvious as to discourage watching with our children.
