** The Mistle-Tones

ABC Family,

Tia Mowry-Hardrict , Tori Spelling, Jonathan Patrick Moore, Andy Gala, Megan Kathleen Duffy, Jason Rogel, Tammy Townsend, Reginald Veljohnson

Holly (Tia Mowry) was blessed with a beautiful voice. Years ago her mother founded a legendary singing group and now there’s a vacancy. But this group is headed by Marci (Tori Spelling) who is jealous of Holly and gives the spot to someone with very little talent. Holly forms her own signing group which they call the Mistle-tones and challenge Marci’s group for the top spot in the Christmas contest at the mall.

This ABC Family film from Christmas 2012 has a plot familiar to “Bring it On”, but with singing. This is a Disney style movie that doesn’t surprise anyone in the results. I mark it down as very predictable. However, I think younger teens, the Disney Channel crowd, are going to like it, and the singing groups and music in the movie are pretty good, so there is a group of people who will probably really enjoy this movie. As for me, It was a little too much Disney Channel and not enough ABC Family for my taste, but I do see the benefits of this movie for the intended audience, so I don’t want to bash it. It’s a genre that didn’t suit my taste, but the for the under 14 crowd, it’s probably a great deal of fun. If you’ve got kids, give it a shot and I’m sure they’ll like it. It’s good “Mean Girls” stuff, for sure.
