** Marry Me for Christmas`

Malinda Williams, Carl Payne, Victoria Rowell, Jason Weaver, Brad James, Karon Riley, Tamara Bass

Jewel (Malinda Williams) is a big advertising agent in the big city, but she’s returning home for Christmas. Mom is sick, and so not to rile her up, Jewel hires one of her employees to travel home with her and pretend to be her fiance. But when she arrives home, Jewel is reunited with her old flame, and the sparks fly. She is forced to look at her life and determine why she is the way she is, and how family is more important than riches and fame.

This is another UP channel 2013 Christmas film. This is an original story that reminded me a lot of the film Soul Food, about an African American family that when they got together had a lot of issues to resolve and work out. Soul Food was a far better movie than this one. I wasn’t surprised to find out that the leading actress of this one was also in the cast of Soul Food. The stories are very similar. This movie just didn’t work for me. It wasn’t bad, it really wasn’t but I just could not get into the story. Maybe, after over a month of watching and rating Christmas movies, I’ve become a bit jaded, but I usually love these kinds of movies. I just didn’t get into this one, because the drama that should have been in this film really didn’t amount to much. Everything was a mistake or a misunderstanding, but very minor in nature. The big ethical questions just didn’t come up. All in all I found my mind wandering through this film, and I just couldn’t keep focused. That, I am sure, also added to my lack of interest in the story. I just didn’t get invested in these people, and it didn’t work for me.
