Is It Any Good?

This romcom is full of stock characters -- the demanding boss, the sweet local boy from childhood, the kindly old relatives -- and all-too-predictable plot turns. But if there's one time of year when movies can get away with a "cookie cutter" approach, it's Christmas. And while the screenplay certainly won't win any Oscars, it's warm and comforting, and there's something to be said for knowing where a story is heading -- particularly when that's toward a happy ending.

A Wedding for Christmas could have benefited from raising the stakes at some points -- the wedding never really feels in peril, nor does the path of true love run particularly bumpily -- and the acting isn't entirely convincing, particularly from those in smaller roles. But with just the right amount of heart and festive sparkle, this cookie still tastes sweet enough.
