Story: A struggling artist working as waitress kidnaps one of her customers to bring home and meet her parents at Christmas.
To all my friends who know I often time joke about clubbering a hottie over the head and dragging him by his feet into my car to carry home and tied to my...wait .... *looks around innocently* carry him home for dinner...yes....dinner...well it happened in this movie!!! so see? I'm not crazy *grins*
This movie was made for TV and starred Melissa Joan Hart (Sabrina the Teenager Witch) and Mario Lopez so I didn't expect anything fancy when I went in. But to be really honest, it wasn't all that bad for a made for tv christmas movie. It was hilarious! Gabrielle Miller (Corner Gas) played the role of the spoil brat really well too!! I know it's cold outside and most people don't feel like smiling but if this movie is on, watch it. Melissa Joan Hart was back to her usual, perky self playing the Gertrude, the lawyer rebelling against the system and becoming a failed artist working as a waitress and Mario Lopez had no trouble at all playing the delicious customer that Melissa kidnaps to pretend to be her boyfriend! I mean David Martin (Mario's character) had no idea what hit him!
HA! I made a pun funny!
Yes, it is a Christmas movie and a romantic comedy but I quite enjoyed it. I wouldn't recommend you go out and buy the thing, but if you can watch it for free, then do it! It's worth it.
