UP TV is after Hallmark's Christmas Title!
11 November 2018 | by rightisrightSee all my reviews

UP TV is quickly building a library of Christmas movies that rivals the Hallmark brands. The UP movies feel more real, with more genuine characters . Tim Reid steals this movie. His character's sadness and gentle dignity is amazing. It's hard to imagine him as Venus Flytrap after this movie! The female lead is certainly less attractive than most of the Hallmark leads, but that lets the director focus on the story.
