Cheesy Holiday Movie Review: The Mistle-Tones

By Kerry

THE MISTLE-TONES A musical Christmas movie starring one half of Sister, Sister and Violet Anne Bickerstaff?! I’m in! Full Disclosure: If your cringe reflex is sensitive, you might want to fast forward past (I’m not making this up) the rapper named Ludacris Kringle performing a rap version of Away in a Manger. Plot: Tia Mowry is obsessed […] Read more…

Cheesy Holiday Movie Review: 12 Dates of Christmas

By Kerry

12 DATES OF CHRISTMAS This looks like a happy go lucky rom-com without a widower in sight! Oh, wait…what? TWO of them? Oh…okay.

And, who could blame her when none other than […] Read more…

Cheesy Holiday Movie Review: Hitched for the Holidays

By Kerry

HITCHED FOR THE HOLIDAYS This movie made me realize just how petite Joey Lawrence is. Full Disclosure: No widows in this one either! However, there is a sick Grandma and a troubled Mother…so no lack of awkward feelings here! Plot: Joey Lawrence has Mommy-related baggage and a Grandma laying on the guilt thick, so he needs a […] Read more…

Cheesy Holiday Movie Review: Trading Christmas

By Kerry

TRADING CHRISTMAS Hmmm…two fellas and two ladies, I wonder how this one will end?

Cheesy Holiday Movie Review: Catch a Christmas Star

By Kerry

CATCH A CHRISTMAS STAR In the thumbnail version of this photo, it looks like she’s going to stab him with that microphone. Full Disclosure: I only watched 20 minutes of this total…10 minutes toward the beginning and the final 10 minutes. I don’t think I missed anything. Plot: Widower (ugh) is reunited with his high school sweetheart […] Read more…

Cheesy Holiday Movie Review: Holiday in Handcuffs

By Kerry

HOLIDAY IN HANDCUFFS For extra fun, go read the 1 star reviews on Amazon complaining about the “sexual content” of this G-rated movie. Full Disclosure: I am a thirty-something woman, so I am predisposed to like Melissa Joan Hart due to my undying love for Clarissa Explains It All. Those feelings do not extend to A.C. […] Read more…

Cheesy Holiday Movie Review: Our First Christmas

By Kerry

OUR FIRST CHRISTMAS The trailer makes this one look like a wacky comedy…it isn’t. Full Disclosure: Being childless by choice means that my tolerance level for precocious children is basically non-existent. So, this movie had the odds stacked against it from the get-go. Plot: Widower Guidance Counselor and Widow Gym Teacher fall in love and marry, blending their families. […] Read more…
