I loved The ending
I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 400 ( C H R I S T M A S ) MOVIES AND SPECIALS. PLEASE BEWARE OF SOME REVIEWERS THAT ONLY HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW. WHEN ITS A POSITIVE THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. NOW I HAVE NO AGENDA! I REVIEW MOVIES & SPECIALS AS A WAY TO KEEP TRACK OF WHAT I HAVE SEEN! I HAVE DISCOVERED MANY GEMS IN MY QUEST TO SEE AS MANY " C H R I S T M A S " MOVIES AS I CAN. Someone keeps reporting my reviews. I guess they are jealous because I do tell the truth. I want to point out that I never make snide remarks about actors weight or real life sexual orientation. If there acting is terrible or limited "I talk about that". If a story is bad "I will mention that" So why am I being "picked on"? IMDB will not even tell me what someone found offensive. Well on to the review : When the office assignments are distributed for Secret Santa, Melanie is excited that she was given her crush, Donovan. Donovan however doesn't celebrate Christmas. He is not close to his family and so Christmas to him is just another day. He is not a Scrooge. However he doesn't understand what the big deal is. Melanie however is now his secret Santa. She wants to find a perfect gift. After she finds she herself working side by side with him her feelings for him continue to grow. His eyes and heart also begin to grow. Now my gripe with this film is that "A Christmas Campaign" kicks off way before "Christmas". Here this project kicks off 2 days before. Also I think Donovan however has been working for years at his job. He would have known how big of a deal his office made about Christmas. Now it seems to me Hallmark loves casting AARON O'CONNELL as a stuffy business man. I think he is capable of doing more. I hope Hallmark cast him again and let him have a "Fun Role". In all this film is enjoyable. Above Average
Loved this movie. My only real challenge was to decide to rate it a 9 or a 10. I only rate about 10% of the Christmas movie a 10 and that is after using IMDB reviews to try to only watch the good ones. There was enough attention payed to the little things like Melanie collecting snow globes, adorable photo with Santa, snowflake earrings that I thought it deserves a 10. Emilee Ullerup and Aaron O'Connell were both just a delight. The two of them were suited well for their parts and that made the movie. Emillee appears to have a depth of acting ability. Emilee was in "Hearts of Christmas" in 2016 and Aaron has only had 9 acting parts in his career (many are Christmas movies- he is 31). Aaron had the lead in "12 Gifts of Christmas" in 2015. The movie was fun, centered around an ad agency at Christmas time with mandatory Secret Santa participation. The story used the Secret Santa as the thread throughout the movie. Maybe the title should have been "My Secret Santa Love". "With Love, Christmas" does not describe the movie adequately. The head/owner of the ad agency was just great.
Santa's Got Mail
Cute idea. This was an unashamed ripoff of You've Got Mail right down to at least one crucial line. Melanie is a woman who has trouble saying no, but she also loves Christmas like no one else. Donovan is a pretty stiff guy who has absolutely no love for Christmas. I love Emilie Ullerup, as Melanie. She is so upbeat and has a megawatt smile. For me, she was what made this movie enjoyable. Aaron O'Connell, as Donovan, does stiff and business like so well that he never really lightened up or connected. He talked about having a new attitude about Christmas, but he still came off as stiff. I also liked Melanie's friends and family. I was generous with my rating because I did mostly enjoy the movie.
Seasonal lightweight Fayre
I would have liked to give a bigger rating , even though the story is pretty lightweight. However, apart from the always excellent Emilie Ullerup as Melanie, there isn't much depth to the characters and not much chemistry between the 2 leads. I'll put that down to the script. I guess this movie will please most Hallmark viewers as it's pleasant enough - but for me, a bit more plausibility is needed in the storyline.Sorry !
Not one of the better debuts for this Xmas.
For one thing, the lead characters had no chemistry that I could discern. Aaron O'Connell had much better rapport with Katrina Law in last year's "The 12 Gifts of Christmas." And Emilie Ullerup was much more believable as the already-confident Nurse Jenny Miller in last year's "Hearts of Christmas!" Unfortunately, the casting of these two, together, to repeat those individual successes is an experiment that I'm afraid did not pay off. Then, there's the plot gimmick. Secret Santas are mandatory?! Puh-lease! It's bad enough when that custom is voluntary. It's not that I Scroogily _hate_ the giving part. Just the opposite! It's the receiving part I mind. I, personally, have never received anything fun _or_ useful from a "Secret Santa" at any place I've worked. So, I have stopped putting my name in the grab bag. Christmas Reviewer (and others) will no doubt vote my review as useless. But, that is how I sincerely feel about this particular movie.
