Based on the bestselling book by Richard Paul Evans. Two strangers who don’t enjoy Christmas meet at work and to avoid being lonely during the holidays make a pact to deal with holiday events together. But as they get to know each other they are able to begin enjoying Christmas. They soon realize that their contract may lead them down a road that neither expected resulting in questionable feelings.
User Reviews: Enjoyable and its always fun to see mutual interests grow to friendship, especially at Christmas.. the most stressful season! The film takes us on an original premise, a promise, to watch strangers reveal how they came to be where they are today… and how they can help each other resolve issues, and take pleasure in seeing it unfold. Isn’t that the Christmas spirit?
Oh, there are definite production problems along the way… the extras working in the film are so bad, its distracting beyond belief — particularly in the food court, and the snow man building contest. The fake snow is also very annoying. But the main characters do keep your attention. Sarah Smyth, as Ashley, was particularly believable.
You want to believe that it’s a wonderful life… including for a lawyer and a travel shop operator. Miracles… and good people… can live Christmas every day of the year.
Now, it’s time to read the book.
