** The Mistletoe Inn

The Hallmark Channel,

Alicia Witt, David Alpay

Kim Ross (Alicia Witt) is a wannabe writer who has been working on her first novel for years. Her boyfriend Garth thinks he’s about to be published, so he breaks up with her to find someone more successful, like him. Kim is kind of devastated and feeling really down, but when she hear about a winter retreat for writers over the holidays which is featuring her favorite writer as the keynote speaker, so she does something rash and signs up. As soon as she arrives she learns that her ex boyfriend Garth is also enrolled and she bumps, literally, into Zeke (David Alpay) who is also attending the conference. They seem to rub each other the wrong way more and more at every meeting, but when it turns out they are assigned to be partners in the labs, it seems like they are in for a war. But the more they got on each other’s nerves, the more they seem to actually like each other.

Alicia Witt is a really good actress, and I generally enjoy her performances. This is completely her movie, but I was a bit underwhelmed with it. the story just wasn’t very deep, and while skimming across the surface of these characters, the bit twist at the end is perfectly in your face from the very first moments of the conference. There is no big surprise. It’s very straight forward and predictable and the connections to the holidays are very slim indeed. In fact, this could take place in the middle of the summer. It was entertaining and kept my interest, but it was just a mediocre Christmas Movie. Don’t expect a lot from this one, and you won’t be disappointed.
