Liddle charmer

Despite it not being one of the most inspired of titles, the premise did sound quite charming. Also saw 'Merry Liddle Christmas' for three other reasons. One was my love of Christmas. Two was that it was part of my Lifetime (and Hallmark) Christmas film completest quest. Also, Kelly Rowland has always struck me as a likeable performer and knows her stuff when it comes to singing, mentoring and performing when she was judging on talent shows.

'Merry Liddle Christmas' is not a great film and it is easy to see why there are and will be those that didn't care for it, but it is charming and inoffensive enough. It is not one of the best 2019 Lifetime Christmas films. Nor is it one of the worst. More a solid middling effort. Was unsure about 'Merry Liddle Christmas' to begin with, have felt this with quite a number of Lifetime's Christmas films, but sticking with it it did get a good deal better and not something to dismiss of the bat.

It's not flawless by any stretch. It did to me start off a little on the slow side and some of the dialogue seemed too cheesy and stilted to begin with.

Thomas Cadrot was rather stiff and just delivers his lines fuctionally but with not enough feeling. Would have liked more spark between him and Kelly Rowland, which was too often lukewarm until having some glow towards the too neat end.

Rowland however is a sheer delight and radiates in charm and sass, never looking ill at ease. She has a supporting cast that give enthusiastic performances, especially Debbi Morgan. The chemistry generally was fun and charming, not disconnected. The direction is fully competent once the story finds its footing. Visually, it looks good in particularly the scenery which is nicely complemented by the photography. The music is pleasant and not intrusive, not always the case with Lifetime (even more Hallmark) films. "We Need a Little Christmas" is a lovely song and is inspiring.

Furthermore, the script is far from perfect, but is sweet and raised a number of smiles while not being too heavy on the sentiment. The story isn't perfect to begin with, but is mostly very charming and warm-hearted with an authentic atmosphere. While the characters are familiar in type, my way of trying and failing to avoid the word cliched, they to me had personality and ones that didn't come over as stale or annoying.

Overall, pleasant if not exceptional. 6/10.

Disposable Christmas goodness.

"Merry Liddle Christmas" is a cutely named 2019 Lifetime Christmas marathon movie. See, the gimmick of this one is that the family's last name is "Liddle." It's very cute and totally disposable just like the movie. After nearly 40 Christmas films this year, it's surprising that no one has just made a standard family comedy movie until now.

Kelly Rowland stars as Jacquie, an executive who has to film her new home at Christmas in order to get a promotion at her company. I can't recall why, but it is only mentioned as a plot buildup. Jacquie designs her home in a modern style with brilliant whites and grays in the paint and decorations, even the christmas trees. When her family arrives, they are mortified by how untraditional the Christmas decorations are. The family are played by actors you may recognize from recent tv shows. We have the obsessive mom and dad, annoying younger sister who can't keep a job, and the struggling middle brother. The brother has two children who ask Jacquie where her real family is as they chase Louie the dog.

Her real family may be across the street. It's first member is a hunky Hot Guy Tyler played by Thomas Cadrot. He doesn't offer much to the film. He's mostly just tall and in need of a shave. Tyler and Jacquie have a few good scenes together discussing how terrible she is at flirting and how stressed out she is. This film didn't really need a romance subplot at all. At least Cadrot smiles well to give you the impression he isn't just showing up for a paycheck.

Everything plays out exactly as you would think if you've ever seen a family comedy before. I got a lot of Christmas Vacation vibes from this one. Rowland is a great straight actor for everyone else's funny parts. Her face contorts all sorts of ways as various things happen.

The only negative I must address is the inclusion of a scene where Jacquie's younger siblings drink Bailey's Irish Cream. Immediately after this scene, there was a real commercial for that product. It left me with the impression that the entire movie was made just for that product placement scene to enhance the commercial. I must reduce a star for that. Otherwise, this is passable.

Cute Christmas movie about family chaos!

This was a cute movie about how crazy our families can all be, especially around Christmas but we love them anyway! Kelly Rowland was adorable and I loved her clothes/style! My only wish was there was a little more emotion in the story. Overall though, it was a good one from lifetime!
