Mini Movie Review: "Every Christmas Has a Story" (2016)

“Every Christmas Has a Story” is somewhat refreshing in presenting mature romance between Hallmark stalwarts Colin Ferguson and Lori Loughlin (gorgeous at 52). Kate and Jack were in love during college but drifted apart. Married and divorced, Jack now produces Kate’s network talk show based in Los Angeles. Kate is career focused with a dim view of Christmas. A furor ensues when Kate is accidently caught saying “I don’t like Christmas” on air. Damage control is a “Kate finds her Christmas spirit” series of special reports from the Christmas crazy Hollyvale, North Dakota. The mayor cooked up the proposal for publicity to boost sagging local economy. This provides the setting for Christmas schmaltz, cheery small town atmosphere, forgiveness (Kate is estranged from her father) and rekindled romance. “Every Christmas Has a Story” is pleasant enough viewing especially if you like Lori Loughlin.

I find it hard to watch schmaltzy movies, they seem so predictable. But If the characters are played by people I like, I enjoy it better.

According to Hallmark, every Christmas has the same story, only the names change!

That does sound predictable but refreshing. I like movies with older actors and actresses in them.

It sounds like a movie I would enjoy watching. I will have to see if it's on again.

You gotta like anybody named Lori, of course!
