Jennie's hopes fade when Petra's charming and handsome nephew, Nick (Steve Lund), arrives on the scene and Petra announces that he will take over the business. She is none to happy but you can figure out what is going to happen. My only main complaint about this film was that it is suppose to be Christmas time but every time they have an skyline shot of New York there is no snow and it seems to be Summertime! The acting in this is fine and the story line works. I give major points to this film because they do not make Nick's girlfriend a jealous woman. This was a major plus in my book. Family safe but in general kids will be bored but adults will like this one! Now would I watch this one again? "Yes I will".
Here's what I really liked about Best Christmas Party Ever - everybody looked great, and I mean everybody, there were no "bad guy" caricatures, and the plot was coherent, reasonably believable, and the ending made it all a satisfying fairytale. The only Christmas movie I can recall liking better than this is Crazy For Christmas starring the magnificent Andrea Roth, but I could easily come to regard this one as an equal and Torrey DeVitto as magnificent as well. If you think It's A Wonderful Life rates a 10, Best Christmas Party Ever is at least a 20.
Overall this movie is better than most Hallmark Christmas movies, but it doesn't stick the landing. Jennie is the leading lady, and unlike most Hallmark movie leading ladies, she is rather up tight, stuck up, and dresses like a barbie doll. She is also too pretty for the role with her model looks, a 'girl next door' type of actress would have fit the role better. Jennie was overacted throughout the movie, often defrauding Nick of his scene stealing qualities. Nick was a refreshing take on the leading man, and not only was his personality quite different than the usual wooden acting from leading males we've come to expect, Nick also is the main character that has to give up his acting dream - the total opposite of all other Hallmark Christmas movies where the leading female character has to give up her dreams to be with the guy. This time around the guy gives it up for the girl. The romance works much better in this movie, but it moves too slowly and then is smashed all together at the end, it's like they go 15mph for the first hour 45minutes, then hit the gas in the last 15 minutes. With only 4 minutes left on the movie, I still had many, many questions and there were many story lines that needed to be resolved. I liked Nick, I did not like Jennie very much. Jennie was woefully miscast in this movie. The old grandma lady was nice in that she was witty but also not naive. The Todd character was a bit forced and didn't quite work, but again, Nick made up for these faults.
This movie chose to spend a lot of time on adversity as faced by Jennie. That alone makes it a little different from all those other ones that give us 90% cheer and eggnog and adversity is just a very brief pause in the action. I wish Nick hadn't made me hate him so much in the very early part. I mean, I really hated him, and Aunt Petra too. I think this is a case where the leopard changes his spots a little too unrealistically. Meanwhile, Jennie, as portrayed by Torrey DeVitto, seems too insecure and too easily shaken to be realistic to think herself as Petra's heir. She also changes her spots, so as to become all courageous. My biggest problem, though, was that they didn't sell me on the blooming romance. From where I sat, it looked too much like Jennie changed her whole attitude toward Nick based on one tender, caring gesture. She might have begun to respect his imagination prior to that, but that's not romance. They didn't have a lot of positive screen time. Steve Lund, as Nick, at least show signs of being drawn to Jennie a little more gradually. In broad strokes, the story was entertaining. We can see some of the general things that are coming in the story, but getting there is not as predictable.
Boring, lacks something. Put me to sleep!!! Did not like Devitto's acting. Too superficial.
