Haylie Duff, Shelley Long, Bonnie Somerville, Jordan Bridges, Jennifer Elise Cox

Hillary (Bonnie Somerville) got dumped just before Thanksgiving. She won a free trip to Mexico for two, but decided to offer the tickets as a reward to any good looking guy who would agree to go home with her for the holiday. Her family, Her mother especially (Shelley Long) is so anxious for her daughter to get married, that the pressure will be intense if she comes home alone. So David (Jordan Bridges), an out of work actor applies for the job. But the two have a difficult time trying to pass themselves off as lovers to the family when they hardly know each other. But as the days pass, they find themselves being attracted to each other. Can the turn the act into the real thing by Christmas?

This is another brand new holiday film from Hallmark for 2011. The movie is the typical “overbearing mom – daughter trying to please her” film. But this is a pretty funny film. Haylie Duff (Hillary’s big sister) plays the overbearing Trisha who is really pretty funny in this film. Shelley Long also plays the mom with a lot of humor and tenderness at the same time. This is an interesting new film, which makes it’s debut this year. (Boy there are a lot of new films coming out on TV this year). This is one of the better ones, and well worth watching if you have the chance. It’s a lighthearted holiday comedy/romance that is a lot of fluff, but still fun to watch.
