Christmas films come in all different ways. This one has a very summer vibe. When I was watching this film though, I thought the main guy felt so familiar he is Cato from The Hunger Games. He is much nicer in this film I must say.
The film in short
Congressional aide Erica forgoes family Christmas to travel at her boss’s behest. At a beachside Air Force base, she clashes with Capt. Andrew Jantz, who knows her assignment is finding reasons to defund the facility.
I got this information here.
What did I think?
It wasn’t that it was bad, it was very nice. It was very sweet and lovely. But at first, Erica was quite angry and she wanted to shut everything down without taking any sort of responsibility. Then halfway through she suddenly changed her mind and thus she changed overnight. I also find it very strange that this congresswoman is looking for a reason to shut the base down when she doesn’t have to have a reason, she searches for a reason so that she can discover how great it is and thus it doesn’t get shut down. But it felt a bit odd. I do believe in Christmas magic but this is a bit too magical even for me. She can just make budget cuts. She obviously shouldn’t, but she could so it feels that Erica going out there is actually a waste of money but that might just be me. The ending was really sweet, I think it was good overall. It gave the right amount of Christmas cheer. I do think this couple will never last but it was a very cute film nonetheless. I think it’s cool that the military does do the Christmas drop I think that it’s really good.
