It is a good holiday movie.Starting Mario Lopez and Melissa Joan Hart who are really good in this movie. It all starts when she steals him away from the diner. She has to take him to meet her parents because she doesn't want her family to think she has failed yet again at another relationship. I wasn't sure I was going to like the Movie in the beginning but I am glad I continued to watch it. It end's up being a great movie and keeps you entertained through the whole thing.

Romantic Christmas comedy fun for the whole family
Lizz A. Belle | North Bend, OR United States | 10/23/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have liked Melissa Joan Hart since her days on Clarissa Explains It All so I was pleased to see she was back on TV again. This movie takes place at Christmas time and is basically a story about a woman who sees herself as a failure through her family's eyes and is hoping that bringing home her successful boyfriend for Christmas will prove she finally got something right, until he dumps her Christmas Eve and leaves her hanging.

She sees a very handsome man at the diner where she is working and tells her mom everything is hunky dory and kidnaps the handsome guy and takes him hostage (hence the handcuffs). From here the plot unravels in the typical romantic comedy faire where he is trying to convince everyone he's been kidnapped and she says it's a kind of joke he likes to play and we all get our happy ending. As I have said, it is the typically romantic comedy plot but there are some very funny moments and I can definitely see myself watching this movie again. If you like MJH, you will enjoy this movie."
Quirky, Twisted, Off-the-Wall, Screwball Christmas Comedy
Paige Turner | Hawaii | 11/20/2008

"I love this film! It is quirky, a bit twisted, and definitely not your typical Christmas movie. Although produced by ABC Family Channel, it is NOT a film for children under 14, as there are many adult references as well as language. It's a lot of fun, very funny and enjoyable. I've watched it over and over and haven't tired of it yet!"
