A Merry Christmas Match
Corey lives in a ski village where she works at a local antique shop. When recently named Christmas Catch Ryder comes into her shop, sparks fly and she starts to wonder what could be.
In a shocking twist, the small-town girl ends up going to the big cit at the end. :starity:

Christmas Wishes & Mistletoe Kisses

:-/ I watch a show about cartoon ponies in a pink world filled with hearts and even I think that title is way too cutsey...

Image
The movie centers around Abbey, a single mom who takes a risk in following her true passion of interior designing. She is hired by a local businessman, Nick, to decorate his estate by Christmas Eve. With the deadline in sight, Abbey must navigate her working relationship with Nick in hopes that this is just the start to a successful new career. The movie also stars Donna Mills as Nick's mother, Caroline.

I'm vaguely curious as to why Lori Loughlin's name is crossed out on the drinking game rules...

*checks Wikipedia*

Nah, she got caught up in a bribery scandal and Hallmark has basically unpersoned her by editing her scenes out of movies, and I assume they will not be bringing her back for new ones.

Given the very short production times on these movie, chances are she was just replaced at the last minute and no one will notice the difference.

Kinda seems like "rich jerk with legal troubles who finds love on Christmas when small town hunk moves in" would be right up their alley.

I'm sort of stuck in a perpetual hell with these fucking Hallmark Christmas movies

they're all very cookie cutter upper middle class holiday themed low-budget made for tv romance horseshit that's intended to be largely consumed by the whitest and straightest people you know

yet, every year once christmas time rolls around, my mom tends to put this shit on all the damn time (mostly because there's surprisingly not a lot of interesting TV on these days), and I end up watching that shit with her anyways :twonk:

Nostalgic Christmas

Image
When Anne helps her father close the family's toy store, what she finds will help inspire an entire town that is need of some Christmas cheer.
The eligible single dad's daughter is REALLY annoying.

Single dad looks like an off-brand Chris Pine.

:ponder: Which makes me think he's a regular in these films, because I think I described someone else like that last year.

Sometimes the official description alone is enough to make me go :vomitpony:

this isn't one of them but I just wanted to say that because your threads helped us when the power was out, doctor, gave us joy and laughter.

Uh oh. The town mill is shutting down. Thankfully, just like in real life, the owner takes the time to help all the displaced workers find news jobs.

Then she gives the mill to the town and lets Handsome B. Eligable run it.

Maybe. These things are so forgettable. I certainly don't remember one.

Here's the Hanukkah movie. And looking at the description....
When Brooke’s boyfriend, Ethan, breaks up with her just before the holidays, she agrees to go home with Joel, an actor who will pose as her boyfriend. She’s built up the ex-boyfriend to be the perfect guy and ‘Mr. Christmas’ but discovers Joel is Jewish and has never celebrated the holiday. What he lacks in experience he makes up for in enthusiasm and happily participates in yuletide festivities. When his secret is revealed, the family is eager to add Joel’s Hanukkah traditions into their holiday celebration but soon become suspicious about his true identity

Is it possible for something to be so bland that it's problematic? If so, these definitely count.

Tonight's movie "Two Turtle Doves"

Image
Dr. Sharon Hayes (DeLoach) searches for a beloved family heirloom in a small Christmas town. When she unexpectedly discovers an adorable little girl and her disheartened father (Rady), she realizes that Christmas miracles really do happen.

Last night's did the single father routine too.

:excite: But this one started with a book opening, which means it's REAL Christmas magic.

Merry & Bright

Image
The story begins when Cate (Sweetin), CEO of the Merry & Bright Candy Cane Company, meets Gabe (Walker) during the busy Christmas season. She assumes Gabe is the suitor her well-meaning mother is trying to set her up with when in reality, he works for Empire Corporate Recovery, which has been hired to take a closer look at Merry & Bright's operation and find ways to make the company more profitable. As Cate and Gabe begin to work together, they find ways to elevate the business and find that they have more in common than savvy business sense.
Halfway through the movie, and the guy the Full House girl's mom is trying to set her up with hasn't shown up.

:spoiler: I will assume the Christmas Grump killed him.

When rookie cop Meriadoc Brandybuck (Dominic Monaghan) is partnered with jaded LAPD veteran Daryl Ward (Will Smith), the two don’t exactly see eye to eye — and not just because one is barely four feet tall. Netflix presents MERRY & BRIGHT.

I was going to ask if they'll do something that's at least as weird as Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever instead of always being generic as fuck, but then I remembered that was a Lifetime movie.

Christmas Scavanger Hunt
Image
When Belinda (Kim Shaw) heads back to her hometown for the holidays, things get complicated when she is forced to team up with her ex, Dustin (McGarry), at the town's annual Christmas scavenger hunt.
We've hit the Hallmark Christmas Movie Hat Trick in the first 10 minutes.

1. Plot involves a land deal.
2. Woman has a distracted current boyfriend
3. She runs into her Christmas loving ex the minute she gets into town.



:flimflam: And no expense was spared on the cast. The career woman who needs to learn the magic of christmas' father is played by none other than TOM ARNOLD!

She volunteered to participate, but the rules randomly pair people off, so she was forced to work with her ex.


But he's the super-nice ex. He didn't go to college with her and she was offended. She finds out, via the power of Christmas, that the reason Mr. Perfect bailed was because his father was ill, and he needed to care for him. Mr. Perfect never told her that because then she might have felt obligated to stay in the town too.

And, of course, her current boyfriend was super-cool about the break up.

I don't think there's ever been a gay couple in these. There's occasionally the "sassy gay friend", but I don't think we've ever seen their partner.
