Movie Description:
"Lizzie Richfield is at a crossroads when she lands a job as house manager for the exquisite Ashford Estate in the Virginia countryside. While preparing the place for sale, Lizzie plans one final Christmas Eve gala for the Marley family, though they seem to be a family in name only. There's Kip Marley, who never met a party he didn't like; Robert, the handsome but all-business executor of the estate; Sloane, who arrives with her two young children, sans husband, and the 90-year-old matriarch, Pippa, a spitfire who doesn't want to put the house up for sale at all. As Lizzie is inserted into the home and the lives of the Marley family, she finds herself drawn to Robert - even as Kip pursues her. Can she navigate her suddenly complicated love life while helping mend family feuds and maybe teaching all the true spirit of Christmas?"

Blandness comes home

Expectations weren't huge for 'Coming Home for Christmas', judging from the very mixed reviews here (from trusted familiar names) and also that the premise was pretty much typical Hallmark. Danica McKellar has always left me mixed, she has shown likeability and charm in enough of her charms but she does tend to be typecast in fairly limited in scope roles. Still saw the film for completest sake and as someone who has never immediately written a Hallmark Christmas film off, enough of their stuff is watchable.

'Coming Home for Christmas' is a semi-watchable effort of theirs. In no way is it a masterpiece, with too many major flaws. It also isn't an abomination either, as there are a few good things. Not one of Hallmark's best by any stretch from that year or overall, but also not one of their worst on both counts. 'Coming Home for Christmas' generally could have done with more spark, charm and flow, and everything here has been seen before and better.

As indicated already, it is not all bad. It looks pleasant and professional enough visually. The scenery is particularly lovely. Some of the music is pleasant enough.

Despite the typecasting, McKellar is a natural presence and is amiable. Doing well in bringing some spirit and sensitivity to a cliched role and not over-emphasising any negative characteristics, a common habit in Hallmark Christmas films for both male and particularly female lead characters. Some of the supporting cast are also better than average, making the most of wanting material.

This cannot be said for the leading man Neal Bledsoe, who is incredibly wooden, a complete blank and completely devoid of charm. The chemistry between him and McKellar isn't ever there, it looked under-rehearsed and awkward and the relationship is yet another relationship that never really develops. What little progression there is comes over as introduced too abruptly. The characters generally are not appealing and are very sketchy, the character of Kip did grate on me and was overacted. The direction is routine at best.

Hallmark films are seldom known for having good dialogue, there are instances where it is not too bad and is honest, there are instances where it starts off bad and gets better and there are instances where it is bad all the way through. 'Coming Home for Christmas' is in the last category, the amount of cheese and mush becomes unbearable. The predictabiity was expected, but the forced contrivances, over-sentimentality, overdone cheese and the overall blandness from being far too thin and full of over-stretched padding were a lot less forgivable and quite hard to take. Some pleasant moments aside, the soundtrack tends to be intrusive and could have been used less and toned down.

Overall, very lacklustre. 4/10

Coming Home for Christmas

Danica McKellar heads up this fun Christmas film from Hallmark.

What I liked about it was the fact that it does deviate from the standard format these films tend to follow (though of course there are the seemingly obligatory dance and snowball fight scenes), with a nice love triangle element to it.

It's all nicely played, and there are some sweet moments, though Andrew Francis always seems miscast for me in the 'younger brother' role when actually he looks a bit too long in the tooth for such a part.

On the whole though this is good stuff.

Lovely sweet Christmas movie

I've had an overdosis over Christmas movies this 2020 December month. I have to say that this one has caught my heart. Can be the wine as well that helped, but definitely one of the Better movies I've seen. Everything clicked for your classic Christmas movie, acting was ok, chemistry and you can't go wrong with this storyline. The speed of the movie was good, good characters and issues to go along with. Could have gone more into details with the loose ends like the grandma, but it's beside the point. Lovely movie to watch
