The Trouble with Mistletoe

At the holidays we tend to look for movies that have a little bit of syrup without tilting too much into Hallmark land.  I have to admit – in the first ten minutes I almost ejected because it looked like it was going to be over-the-top schlock.  Eventually it evened out a bit and fell into a traditional story about people who don’t want to get hurt.  I can see that – while grading on a Christmas movie scale – this wasn’t too bad.  If you want a good laugh go read the reviews submitted by several hens on Amazon.  They gave the film one star because in one scene they referenced male anatomy.  Because in a movie about grownups and made for grownups that is on some level shameful (slapping forehead).
