Worth the find

There has never been any bias for or against Hallmark Christmas films. Actually think there are a mix of good, bad (and worse in some cases) and somewhere between mediocre and decent, so it's a variable output really. One just needs to know what to expect and not to expect too much. Have also had any bias for this genre and the two leads are no strangers to good performances even in hit and miss film choices. Did like the idea for the story, although the structure is samey the setting is a departure to the usual ones seen.

'Finding Christmas' is a very pleasant watch and when taken for what it is and meant to be it succeeds at what it set out to do. Expectations were mixed, they were met and exceeded. Hallmark titles can be corny and sugary, but the title for this film is quite profound-sounding one. As far as Hallmark Christmas films go, 'Finding Christmas' is somewhere in the high middle and certainly one of the better efforts from that year. This opinion is from judging the film on its own terms without comparing it to anything else, so am not saying (never have, never will do) that it is on par with something else that has gotten the same rating that will make some scoff.

Is it flawless? No. The structure of the film and what happens is very familiar territory for Hallmark so there is a seen it all before vibe throughout. The ending is heart-warming, but also a bit too tidy.

Hallmark films do tend to be over-scored and that was the case here with 'Finding Christmas' at times. Christina Rosato is a little stiff at times and some of the dialogue is on the sugary side.

On the other hand, so much is good here. It at least looks nice and professional. Although the authenticity of the locations can be questioned, the scenery still looks lovely and appropriately festive, complemented very nicely by the photography. Enough of the soundtrack is nostalgic and JT Hodges sings beautifully. The direction is sympathetic without going through the motions.

Moreover, the dialogue does improve quite a bit later on, it is tighter and less stilted and the cheese and sentiment isn't as much. The story is very predictable admittedly, but it still engaged me and was charming and heart-warming while not taking itself too seriously. The characters may be well worn cliches, but they came over to me as likeable enough and any negative character traits didn't come over as over the top like can be the case in Hallmark Christmas films. One of 'Finding Christmas' biggest pleasures is Tricia Helfer, who gives a very sincere and charming performance. The rest of the cast are good and the chemistry natural, only Rosato isn't quite there.

Concluding, pleasant film. 6/10.

Two (gems) for the price of one

We have two love stories in this Christmas romance. The story is unusual in that sense, especially since the two are related but take place several states apart.

The first gem is Tricia Helfer. I've seen her as a solid actress in a lot of things, but in this one she really drew me into the story. I thought especially that if you contrast Helfer's sincerity with either of the rival girls, you could see Ryan's love. Meanwhile you could clearly see in contrast that, even Kimber, played well by Brittany Gray, wasn't sincere as she professed her love for Owen. It was good acting by both Helfer and Gray. Jessica Phillips, as Halo, was a little more obvious what she wanted.

I wish I thought that Mark Lutz, the beau opposite Helfer, was as good as her. Not bad, just not as good.

The other gem is the singing of J.T. Hodges. I love these Christmas movies when a talented star sings. His character, Owen, was in the other love story with Mia. Hodges was good in his acting, again not as good as Helfer. As for the last main player, I thought that Cristina Rosato delivered a lot of her lines stiffly.

This is one Hallmark movie where the kid didn't steal the show, nor was he intended to. He was cute, but really not central to the story.

The story was mostly straight forward. We expect some roadblock on the way to happiness, and both romances got one.

I liked This Film

BEWARE OF BOGUS REVIEWS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY REVIEWED ONE FILM AND GET THAT FILM A RAVE. THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 200 Christmas MOVIES. I HAVE NO AGENDA. I LOVE WATCHING THEM. I AM FARE ABOUT THESE FILMS.

Holidays films always seem to be about love and finding your family. This movie is of course all about love. In this film 2 men switch homes for "Christmas" and in the process come out of their shells that they had no idea that they were in. As far as Christmas films go this one is above average. It has its very tender and believable.

All the roles are almost cast to perfection. It helps that I do not remember seeing any of these actors in anything before. I was able to buy into their performances.

This is a "Romantic Drama" and it is also family safe. Kids under 12 will be bored because nothing gets blown up but blown out of proposition. If you can watch it with the one you love. If you are a guy then watch it with girlfriend. You will thank me later
