“Iu0026#39;m probably the last person in the world youu0026#39;d expect to love Christmas Bounty and watch it every year. Iu0026#39;ve never seen a wrestling match in my life, and Iu0026#39;m not really a fan of action movies unless theyu0026#39;re really, really good. I have no desire to ever ride a motorcycle, and Iu0026#39;ve never watched Jersey Shore. Miraculously, I do love this movie and watch it every year. Itu0026#39;s just so much fun!u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eProduced by WWE (and ABC Family), this movie is full of awesome action scenes surrounding a hilarious plot and all set during Christmas. Really, this isnu0026#39;t really a Christmas movie, but when you think about it, neither is Itu0026#39;s a Wonderful Life. Anyway, the hero of the story is a beautiful, young elementary school teacher with a secret past. Her boyfriend thinks sheu0026#39;s uncomplicated and classy, but sheu0026#39;s actually part of a family of bounty hunters from New Jersey! When a criminal threatens her family, she has to return to her hometown and team up with her hilarious parents and hunky ex-boyfriend to catch him.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI love how simple and silly this movie is. The love triangle is suspenseful because neither guy does anything terrible. They both care for her, and theyu0026#39;re both nice, good guys. A friend she left behind may come across as a bimbo, but sheu0026#39;s not jealous or spiteful, and she supports her friend no matter what. Basically, there are no bad guys besides the actual bad guys, and sometimes thatu0026#39;s exactly what I need when I want to relax in front of a movie. Christmas Bounty has so many hilarious moments, and everything youu0026#39;d expect to be included in a Jersey movie: big hair, leopard print everything, gold pants, motorcycles, thick accents, and funny nicknames. Where else will you find characters named Lizzy Legs and Mikey Muscles? Where else will a spray tan be an integral plot point, or a dance-off cover the closing credits? Be bold this holiday season and try out a movie thatu0026#39;s not your typical fare. If I, the absolute opposite of the target audience, liked it, you might, too.”
