Paige Summerlind (Candace Cameron Bure) is a shaky bride-to-be with the perfect fiance. She has yet to meet his parents, and they’re rich and old fashioned, so they’ve scheduled a meeting with her in New York City. But during the flight, the pilot informs them that the New York airports are closed due to a bad winter storm, and so they are diverted to Buffalo. But as soon as the NYC airports reopen, Buffalo is getting hit by the storm of the century. Meanwhile, her seatmate Dylan (Paul Greene) is driving her crazy with his attitude. Turns out he’s had his heart broken not long ago and is anti-relationship. But the only way Paige has a chance of making it to NYC is to hitch a ride in the last available 4-Wheel Drive jeep in Buffalo with Dylan and a bickering couple really down on marriage who are trying to talk her out of it.

Since Dancing With the Stars, Candace Cameron Bure and Danica McKeller have had a little rivalry going. I’m afraid Danica edged her out this Christmas with “Crown for Christmas”. But this “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles” for Christmas was pretty good. Last year, Candace blew her away by a mile. Candace has been doing some really great films each year, and is certainly the one star that I look for each Christmas. This film was good, had a lot of humor, and I did enjoy it very much. But it didn’t have the spark that the others had. Still it’s a clever story, and it suits her style. The situation was humorous, and we figured the two would get together in the end. This is my second favorite of the Hallmark films for 2015, and well worth watching. It will be repeated all through the season.
