Been meaning to watch this for a while. Just...didn't. So many Xmas movies...so little time.
Eliza is an heiress to her father's company. She wants to be the CEO, but her father doesn't think she is ready. He decides to challenge her to deliver a Christmas letter in person to his ex-partner in their hometown. She has to travel incognito, by buy, and with only 100$ in her pocket. Will she be able to learn something from the people there? About herself? About life?
Rich girl. Little town. Pretending to be not rich. Arse fiance. Hawt and kind-hearted poor boy...................love it. Such a common story plot, but I adore it so much!
One thing that I really loved was that Eliza wasn't a heartless, cold, spoiled princess. Yes, she has had a comfy life, but at the heart of it, she was a sweetie. She really cares about the kids and the company.
I was bummed her fiance was a poop though because I really adore the actor. Sighs, but he did do a good job of being a rich jerk. Not a too classical jerk where it was over-the-top, but it was the little things he said and did that made you dislike him. Great performance there.
Loved Jake too. I recognize the actor too...but not sure where.
The ending was good. You know they are going to end up together, but I loved how everything came together. It was for sure in the holiday spirit! Loved it. Very cheesy...of course....but holiday romances always are. I'll give this 4 stars.
