What's the point?

I honestly wish I could give negative stars. This movie makes no sense and I don't understand how there are so many 10 star reviews.

I will never get my two hours back. I painfully sat through this entire moving thinking at some point it had to get better. It does not for several reasons.

1. The entire movie Layla's family bullies and pushes her to forgive her terrible cousin who has stolen her fiancé. This is after the first 10 minutes of the movie where she attends said cousins wedding with Seth, the guy responsible for her breakup. For absolutely no reason whatsoever he announces their "fake" engagement. Naturally, the ex-fiancé grills them about being a couple as if it's his business what she does with her life. Her cousin, meanwhile, seems pleased as if she's now off the hook for stealing her fiancé. Her overbearing aunt is thrilled and doesn't ever seem concerned with acknowledging her daughter did something horrible because "they're family". This continues throughout the movie with everyone insisting Layla get over her pain, embarrassment, etc. telling her they want forgiveness. Why don't they try asking for or earning it?

2. Fast forward over an hour of random filler nonsense of decorating a house, Layla's annoying ex-boss decorating the house next door, and some random encounters along the way. Get a backbone Layla, she's your ex-boss WHO CARES what she thinks of you or you "fake" engagement anymore?

3. Seth cares WAY too much about this fake engagement. No guy cares this much about a fake relationship to give a woman his grandmother's ring!

4. The entire movie they go to or are asked to attend dinners where they clearly look like they're lying. I get it's a movie but after 1 or 2 times is it really that hard to lie without making a face?

5. Finally, although I could add more to the list, at the end of the movie after Layla secures a new, dream job (thanks to Seth...how convenient) they decide it's time to break up. Seth is clearly in love, saying several times how she's made his house a home, and Layla also has feelings. So, there's literally NOTHING keeping them from just being a real couple. Literally NOTHING! No brat kids, crazy ex's, no one that matters knows this is all fake and threatens to expose them. Instead, they attend their engagement party so they can embarrass themselves by staging a fake fight?? WHY??? Then Seth finally confesses his love, Layla also decides she's in love (although really not believable in my opinion) and 2 minutes later they're getting married (in December to make this ridiculous title make sense) and movie ends.

I guess it's a feel good movie if you only watch the last 5 minutes.

Fantastic Movie: Excellent Story; Cast;Main Characters

Hi All, Hallmark has exceeded my expectation with this movie December Bride. Wonderful, truly wonderful leading man and lady. Daniel Lissing and Jessica Lowndes are so in sync with the acting makes me feel like I am watching a real life couple. The smiles, the looks, all sweet, innocent longing and so much love it is amazing. Hallmark needs to feature this wonderful glorious beautiful so matching couple in an upcoming Valentine and more Christmas movies. I am now a forever fan of Hallmark channel if this happens. Also if hallmark can place them in a solid series together would be super. I have watched many shows and movies in all channels but never have I seen a couple so much made for each other, superior match. For the casting director Well Done!. Jessica and Daniel aka Layla and Seth I have seen this movie going on 10 times now so I will give this movie, Jessica and Daniel a complete 10

Very Sweet

BEWARE OF FALSE REVIEWS & REVIEWERS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW TO THEIR NAME. NOW WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE MOVIE. IF ITS A NEGATIVE REVIEW THEN THEY MIGHT HAVE A GRUDGE AGAINST THE FILM . NOW I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 200 HOLIDAY FILMS. I HAVE NO AGENDA. I AM HONEST

Aspiring interior designer Layla is dreading the Christmastime wedding of her cousin who's marrying Layla's ex-fiancé. Although Seth is the one responsible for introducing the bride and groom, she begrudgingly accepts his offer to be her date as she's out of options. Seth gets carried away at the reception and announces they're engaged, forcing a mortified Layla to keep up the pretense.

What I found unrealistic was a woman steeling her cousins fiancé and expecting her cousin to forgive her. THAT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN. I also think the woman would not of attended wedding.

Now with that out of the way do I think this was a good film? "Its Average" its pleasant enough. The films stars two people who are convincing in their roles.

The plot moves along nicely, Everything that happens after the initial set up is 60% plausible.

The film does entertain but the core audience for this film is going to be women. Most men will be bored. Family Safe but kids will hate this!

If you like "Christmas Movies" then watch this.
