A lame film
29 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

Set in the 2017 run-up to Christmas centring on a young woman who pines for love. Sarah (Ashley Newbrough) has only ever lived in her small home town. In her sheltered environment she seldom meets suitors, romance never sparks. A pact is made with her childhood best friend Nick (Adam Hurtig) to build a snowman every Christmas until she finds the man of her dreams - oblivious to Nick's dreams. Their snowman pact and strong friendship continues for twenty years, into adulthood. Yet Sarah remains utterly blind to what the audience knows; ever since that pact Nick has deeply loved Sarah. Believable thus far, however, the next part is not. You are supposed to believe a red scarf, once belonging to her deceased mother, if placed on the snowman will bring Sarah a man specifically named Cole, and love. Worse follows.

As if by magic, a handsome stranger called Cole (Jessis Hutch) knocks on her door next day at 9am, returning the red scarf that had blown away. Sarah is invited to lunch, and out on a date. Meanwhile, lovesick, spurned best friend Nick obsequiously accepts the intruder into Sarah's, and his life. Cole, weirdly obsessed by all things snowy, behaves peculiarly, yet charms Sarah into potentially leaving with him to Europe on Christmas Eve. Will she travel with him? That is the rub in the 90 minute runtime you'll never get back.

Tension in the movie is absent. The three main characters do not carry the film sufficiently for this to be more than a long, slow yawn. A dozen supporting characters are unaccredited; one of whom, Sarah's father, catches the attention most. Kind, tolerant, understanding, he has all the best lines and steals the show! None of Sarah's work colleagues are remotely realistic. Always late, she chatters about love, eats nonstop… and eventually deigns to open her laptop. How exhausting! Her boss praises Sarah for all the non-existent work. Anything Sarah does is sycophantically praised. Doubtless romantic movie buffs will watch. But this made-for-TV-movie is simply wasting precious time.
