The Nine Kittens of Christmas (TV Movie 2021). The Nine Kittens of Christmas: Directed by David Winning. With Brandon Routh, Kimberley Sustad, Gregory Harrison, Stephanie Bennett. Zachary and Marilee are thrown back together at Christmas when they’re tasked with finding homes for a litter of adorable kittens.
“Seven years ago, Hallmark produced a cute movie involving two cats. In that, Marilee, a gentle, considerate and loving woman found love with firefighter Zac, who won his commitment-phobia and, like a mountain lion, climbed the highest peak and reclaimed her, his eternal love. It was not a teenager, puppy, love, as both were well into their thirties. Now, Hallmark transport us to five years later, when we find their u0026quot;eternalu0026quot; love has lasted no longer than the holidays cheer. For unclear reasons, Marilee had soon moved to Miami, to complete her vet school. She has completely turned the page, started a business and lived for three years with her partner- boyfriend. Meanwhile, Zac has lived in limbo, still chasing his fears, and done nothing to claim her again. Marilee decides to go back home to visit her family for the Holidays and they meet again. With the help of nine kittens, they are ready to rekindle their previous ephemeral story. With typical TV movies logic, she has no qualms turning the page on her three-year commitment and he miraculously discovers the backbone he never had. Christmas movies are magic in that they make us believe there are good people, with all of the qualities we admire and inspire us. In this instance, Hallmark expects us to be idiots, supposed to be moved and inspired by two characters that have proved to be flaky, shallow and and clueless, at best.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eHonestly, why should anyone give a hoot about their new fling and how long it is going to last? But…., do not worry, we are likely to find out soon, whenever Hallmark is short of ideas for a new show. With a masterful stroke, Hallmark has managed to ruin the appeal of their former creations, to provide a nonsensical, vapid new chapter. Such is the glory of most remakes. On the plus side, the nine kittens are very cute. Wish they had been given a larger role and spared us the uninspired love story.”
