Holiday High School Reunion/Christmas Crush (2011, dir. Marita Grabiak)

What can I say? A mad horny cast of thirty-year-old twenty-somethings, including Jonathan Bennett AKA the love interest from A Dogwalker’s Christmas Tale not Tail AKA Aaron Samuels from Mean Girls? This film really is something. Not something good, but something!

Snowmance (2017, dir. Douglas Mitchell)

This film is the height of escapism- not because Sarah’s “dream man” snowman comes to life, but because in the world of Snowmance, print media is alive and well to the extent that you can make a good living off regional journalism!

Be warned, this is not of the same calibre. For more of the good stuff, why not check out my video on the duo of Princess Switch films?

An Accidental Christmas (2007, dir. Peter Stewart)

We open on a photo of a couple, laughing at a beach resort- BUT it’s in a book entitled Memories so we know these halcyon days are long gone. Welcome to An Accidental Christmas, and the memories of separated couple Victoria and Jason. Victoria is an architect who is always hard at work drawing or pointing at blueprints. Jason is a lawyer and I promise you, you will want to divorce him too.
