    It's exactly what I expected
    And I love it. I don't understand the people who willingly watch a romcom Christmas movie on streaming and decide this was the worst movie ever. Are there some out there that are just excruciating to watch? Absolutely. But this is one of many in the genre that doesn't disappoint. In retrospect some of the storyline is kind of cliche and predictable but you sign up for that watching this. I liked the characters even if some of them were a little flat (the guy who didn't talk). Brooke Shields is an excellent actress and played the role perfectly. I would have liked a little more layering of the narrative of the new book in the actual movie just to add some complexity to the story line. And another complaint would be the eventual love between the main characters was a wee bit tough to feel but honestly I'm ok with it. I thoroughly enjoyed this film and if you like Christmas romcoms this likely will not disappoint.

    enjoyable film
    I liked this film enough to watch it twice. I enjoyed the chemistry amongst all the actors; they seemed to be having such a good time. The scenery was gorgeous and, oh, that castle at Christmas.

    SOMETIMES you just need a "feel good" movie
    I needed a pick-me-up this holiday season and since I love Brooke Shields? Thought I'd give this simple (if not rather hypothetical) movie on Netflix a try...Glad I did. Some great scenery, Brooke is comedic to state the least and the plot was fun (anything with the irish is fun!) It followed a nice story with her as a writer needing a change of "scenery" and returning to family roots. Nothing crazy about that really...Many of us have made a trip somewhere doing the very same thing. The holiday grandeur of the various scenes was really inspiring and most beautiful if not joyful and I have to say - RETURNED my spirit of joy over the holiday season. There is no real drama - just this fun clash of male/female wills. I really think Brooke missed her mark by not doing more comedy as the years have gone by but? NEVER too late, as this movie shows. Very fun if not lighthearted for the TYPE of simple plot it is. Nothing more - nothing less.
