The story about a "Christmassy couple", which does every important step in life at this special time of the year, works nicely. The plot is filled with lot of very funny, heartwarming and droll scenes. It is three weeks before Christmas/Wedding. The bride named Emily (Sarah Poulson) is a sweet chick but stuck to her job and besides over organized and the perfect perfectionist. Her workaholic boss Tuck (Dean Cain) manages taking Emily away to work for 2 weeks, she travels 2000 miles leaving the groom named Ben (Eric Mabius) at home. He is stuck between a chaotic future mum in law (very funny playing Mimi Kuzyk), bridal showers and preparations for the perfect pre-organized wedding always the two - each day getting more nervous - families in his back. Will she be back at the right time?
This movie was first performed in 2006 on TV, and filmed in Halifax/Nova Scotia in Canada. It might not be "the classic" Christmas story, but it is very funny and catches you by all means. It is amusing and very well and naturally played and the characters are believable. Easily such a funny plot could change into something totally odd, but this story does not. You follow the protagonists with eagerness, joy and laughter and sometimes with some hidden tears in your eyes.
The prize of this DVD is very good, so you can do nothing wrong buying and trying...;D.
I recommend this film for the most wonderful time of the year but also for before and after - it might not bring you right away into a Christmassy mood but surely will amuse you....
