A good enough Lifetime Christmas movie…
Well, it is original, in the sense that I have not seen many Christmas movies about a magical car bringing people together. The story is a warm one, but it did take me a while to be drawn into it. As another reviewer pointed out, it is, at times, a bit…how should I say this…slow. And some of the scenes felt rushed and underdeveloped. For example, the scene towards the end, where they stopped in the street and started randomly handing out gifts, seemed a bit off to me. That said, the acting was fairly good overall. Tiya Sircar (as Ashely) is a decent actor. Her performance here was solid. Michael Xavier too had a good performance. I am not sure I saw any believable chemistry between the two. At times, it felt like they were becoming good friends as opposed to getting romantically involved. If there was chemistry, then it was very low key. I was surprised to see no kissing scene at the end, which is the typical ending in this genre of film. Hmmm…maybe this is a bit refreshing. The supporting cast was decent too. Kristen Kurnik (as Hannah) had a good performance. At first, I thought there was something a bit off with Randy Thomas’s (as Tony, the uncle) performance, but by the end, I warmed up to him. The scenery, props and sets were not bad, but not as polished as, e.g., Hallmark films. It was a bit funny at times when Ashely referred to 100-year-old antiques that looked like they were recently purchased in Kmart (nothing against Kmart). Overall, it is a good enough, middle of the road Christmas movie with an original story and some solid acting.
Christmas on Wobbly Wheels
This one is nothing but a bunch of cliches and questionable leaps of convenience that are not believable, even for a Hallmark movie:
* Big city Seattle woman goes home to a “small town” that by the looks of the downtown is at least 20,000 people
* The stranger that outbids the female lead (Ashley) in the opening scene at a Seattle auction house just happens to be her Aunt and Uncle’s estate lawyer…in a small town “100 miles” from Seattle
* Only in movies like this do people decorate their garage interiors not only with decorations, but with Christmas lights as well
* The prissy female lead with massive eyelash extensions just happens to have mad car repair skills, who knew
* The female lead attends Christmas auctions, professionally…just think about that for a second
* “Mrs. Henderson”
* Uncle Tony yells/declares/announces his banal lines instead of talking like a human
* The “hometown friend” is model pretty and a tall thin blonde to boot
* A goofy tractor repair man/christmas tree farmer gives away a classic car
* The antique bell saved the life of a “sheep herding farmer” on Christmas Eve
* “Let’s go get a tailpipe!”
* Let’s install the tailpipe in a fancy purple sweater with designer jeans and necklace!
* The best way to start a unstartable car is put a big dude in the front passenger seat
* Driving a vintage convertible with the top off in the winter…brrrrrrrr. I’ve done this with my jeep – it was NOT fun.
* The female lead once again has to choose between her career in the big city and a man in a small town (this is very grating in 2020)
* Hey my high school friend with the Canadian accent just happens to have a box of early 1960’s car headlight bulbs in her minivan!
* Uncle Tony’s grandmother got married on Christmas day??
* Driving a convertible around in the winter with the back seat piled high overflowing with christmas presents…
Other thoughts The male lead Duncan is a pretty cool dude and down to earth. He realizes how silly this is and most of what he says is said sarcastically out of sheer boredom. It’s a hoot listening to him talk to Ashley as it all goes right over her head.
Sadly everyone around Duncan is utterly one dimensional, especially Ashley. Tiya Sircar plays the female lead as an impersonation of every female lead in every Hallmark Christmas movie. Poor Duncan, he has to pretend is not surrounded by cardboard cutouts.
“Aunt Charlotte” actually looks like an Aunt Charlotte
At least the obligatory montage was of them cleaning up the car with knowing looks instead of decorating a christmas tree.
They don’t kiss, not even once!
The car is the best character in the movie
