Doesn't feel fully baked

This is in reference to Nick's quite apt comparison from wishes to Christmas cookies. 2017 was another hit and miss year for Hallmark Christmas films, 'Christmas in Evergreen' is neither one of the best or worst. A middling effort if you will. Regarding Hallmark's 2017 output, most ranged between lacklustre and just above average with some very bad and surprisingly good ones as well. A very variable year overall as indicated already.

'Christmas in Evergreen' is one of the average middle ones. That is very much applicable for their Christmas output overall, the film is around average middle in this regard too. 'Christmas in Evergreen' is a film with good things and moments, but for me it also had a lot of shortcomings (a few of them being the usual Hallmark gremlins). So feelings are somewhat mixed here, which was in a way more or less what was expected.

Shall start with the good things. The production values are quite nice, the scenery being beautiful even. Regardless of questions about authenticity the film for me was easy on the eyes. Some of the soundtrack is nostalgic and appropriately festive. There is evidence of charm and heart and the joy of Christmas is captured well.

Acting is not bad on the whole, with a likeable male lead in Teddy Sears. He is very charming in it and doesn't come over as too uptight and certainly far from dull. The supporting cast are better than average.

That cannot be said unfortunately for Ashley Williams, really did want to be another reviewer that liked her here in 'Christmas in Evergreen' but sadly that's not the case. Am another person that felt that she tried too hard to the point that she got annoying and rather shrill, she has a lovely smile but overuses it. Her chemistry with Sears has sweet moments but on the most part it doesn't sparkle enough and when it comes to the development it's both rushed in how too quickly the relationship evolves and also under-baked. The characters are too much like recycled cliches.

Which is pretty much the case with most of the story too, especially in the final third capped off by the as ever too neat and hastily resolved ending. Everything is obvious and there are too many things that happen too conveniently or come over as contrived. The dialogue has too much awkwardness and over-sentimentality with a lot of cheese thrown in too. The music tends to be too loud and doesn't always gel tonally.

Overall, average but watchable. 5/10

no drama romance

The town of Evergreen is home to a magic Christmas globe. Veterinarian Allie Shaw (Ashley Williams) is moving to DC for a new job at a big clinic and spending time with her ex Spencer. She makes a wish on the globe and situations conspire to keep her stuck in town. Michelle (Holly Robinson Peete) is her best friend who is taking over the Christmas festival. Ryan Bellamy (Teddy Sears) and his daughter Zoe are passing through town to fly to Florida. Zoe makes a wish on the globe. They run into Allie at the airport. Flights are canceled. The road out is blocked. No one can come in for the Christmas festival and no one can leave.

This is a Hallmark Christmas romance. It is a no drama special. There are no big surprises. Ashley Williams is super sweet. Teddy Sears is perfectly nice. It is hot sugary chocolate and it doesn't even have the marshmallows for fun. It does what it sets up to do. It does not offend. It does not challenge. It is a dash of magic and a batch of sugar cookies. It is Christmas at its nicest and safest.

Ashley Williams is adorable

Ashley Williams is a small-town girl, born and raised in the town of Evergreen, a town whose magical snow globe grants Christmas wishes. She's a veterinarian and loves her work, but she decides to take a leap and move to Washington D.C. Teddy Spears is a single dad just passing through, but the magical snow globe just might have other plans, and both Teddy and Ashley might end up staying in Evergreen longer than they thought.

Christmas in Evergreen is a pretty cute Hallmark movie, and not for the usual reasons. Yes, it's a bit corny and yes, the heartwarming elements make up for the corniness. But it's Ashley Williams who makes this movie truly delightful. I've never seen her in anything before, but in this film, she seems so completely at home in her character and her surroundings. You really feel that she's lived in that town her whole life, and the sass and spunk she puts into her lines shows she's comfortable with her friends and neighbors. Barbara Niven plays Ashley's mom, and not only is there a strong family resemblance, but they have a wonderfully realistic chemistry together. They really feel like mother and daughter, and it's pretty cute to watch.

The side plots of the story aren't the best or most imaginative, and you might choose those moments to pop some more corn, but Ashley will capture your attention and heart. Catch this movie the next time Hallmark airs it and get ready to root for the good girl.
