The always lovely Sarah Lancaster stars in this by-the-numbers
inspirational Christmas TV movie. Inspirational, for those who don't
know, is code for religious (usually Christian). I'm not particularly
religious myself but I don't have an issue with religious or spiritual
themes in movies. However, I know from many reviews I've read on IMDb
that some recoil from these movies like vampires from crosses. So if
religious subject matter bothers you, be prepared before watching this
so you don't gripe about how they "tricked" you or something. Also, I
should point out that the religious elements do not overtake the movie;
they're just there in the background and occasionally at the forefront.
Mostly just little scenes like Sarah's character will say "How are we
going to pay the huge bills to save the farm" and her dad will smile
and reply "Oh we'll find a way" then turn to look at a nativity scene
he's got laying out in his living room. Cloying perhaps but harmless to
all but the nastiest among us.
The plot's a mixture of familiar elements: Sarah's family is in danger
of losing their farm to a greedy land developer just as her ex, a
country music star who left her when they were teenagers, returns to
town. About 95% of all movies made about farms seem to be about how the
farm is about to be taken away from its owners. Must be hard running a
farm when there are villainous land developers lurking around every
corner waiting to turn your heritage into a parking lot. I like Sarah
Lancaster but I've come to the conclusion after seeing her in so many
shows and TV movies that she is only ideally suited to a narrow range
of roles. Here, she's not really convincing as a Southern farm girl.
For one thing, her accent comes and goes. She looks great in those
jeans, though. But the main problem here is that her character is a
pain in the rear for most of this movie. On the one hand, you feel bad
for her because she has to shoulder the burden of saving the farm while
her parents, who are approaching senility it seems, laugh it off like
bags of money are just going to fall from the sky if you believe hard
enough. But then we have the romantic plot, which is just a mess and
does her no favors. So her high school boyfriend left her and she's
bitter about that. She's also gorgeous and smart and, you know, over
thirty....so maybe get over it already?
Vets Barry Corbin, Gregoy Alan Williams, Brett Rice, and Rebecca Koon
offer solid support. Jill Wagner is sadly wasted here. She really
should be playing the lead in things like this, not the sassy best
friend who appears for only a few scenes. The major weak spot in the
cast is Alan Powell. He has no chemistry with Sarah and just seems
smugly nonchalant most of the time. They obviously didn't help him with
good dialogue but his character's basic purpose is to end conversations
by putting his head down, saying something like "Well OK" and shuffling
off. This, coupled with the actor's inability to fully open his mouth
to speak, makes it hard to like or relate to him in any meaningful way.
I just didn't care about his character's flimsy problems (he
embarrassed himself intentionally dancing badly on a charity TV dancing
show -- what?) and I was never invested in the romance with Sarah's
character. She should've moved on with her life and this guy should
hire a better agent.
It's not a bad movie of its type but it is very familiar and corny.
You'll see every slight twist in the plot coming a mile away. I knew as
soon as I read the plot description how the family's financial problems
would be resolved, and I'm sure you will figure it out quickly, too.
Anyway, not bad but not great. Harmless fluff with a little bit (just a
little) of seasonal spirituality to give it appeal to an audience that
might want something different from a Christmas movie than Santa and
Rudolph. Oh and those who like seeing Sarah Lancaster in tight jeans
will also enjoy it.
