An Enjoyable Holiday Romance

If you like stories of holiday romance, you may well enjoy this one. It starts off with the winter weather conspiring against travel, forcing Anna (Laura Osnes) and James (Aaron Tveit) to spend a few days together in a beautiful, small town inn.

They have very different personalities and disparate trajectories in life. She is a Boston nurse and he is a crowned prince. The story is, of course, about the improbable stirrings of romance, which somehow blossom into deep feelings. But there are major obstacles to overcome.

I found this film improved as it progressed. Indeed, its most enjoyable portion is the final act, thanks to the wonderful acting of the two principals. Also, despite the predictability of the final outcome, the writing is fresh, with plot twists and surprises that add layers of emotional depth.

No special surprises but still a nice production

The royal angle on the story is a bit different from most of the royal stories. The prince isn't on his home turf. The way he is stranded is quite the string of unlikely circumstances and therefore a little different than the usual. The Queen, his mother, actually takes a liking to the commoner American. The story doesn't work overtime to show how out of place Anna would be in James' world. And there is a twist at the end which some will predict, but I didn't.

I could have been happier if James had dropped the arrogant prince attitude a little sooner. He was quite rude, in contrast to Anna's playful irreverence. I like the way they discover that they are alike in the way the both seek to serve others. Unfortunately, that's the only chemistry I saw, at least until very late in the story. There is a second romance story, but not a lot of time is spent on it so it doesn't dilute the main story.

Other than the arrogance in the beginning, this is pretty much a feel good story with almost no tension. Somehow, the viewer knows that the pressure from Galwick will be resolved and even that never really dampens things.

There are some funny moments. I laughed out loud when one after another characters came down the stairs with feigned concerns over the black ice.

As my title says, there isn't really anything special in the story itself. In fact, the story is rather thin. The main romance is OK, but also not that special. But somehow everything comes together to make the whole thing enjoyable for me.

BTW: How can you have Laura Osnes in a movie and not feature her singing more than twice with a single stanza where other actors have the same or more significant contributions. Krystal Joy Brown has a very nice voice but I'd like to hear more from the "Broadway Disney Princess".
