Dont waste your time. Its rubbish

Was so boring. I struggled to keep watching it plus Amanda Kloots has had so much botox now she has no expression on her face - poor actress.

Is It Any Good?

Fit for Christmas is based on the unvarying Christmas movie blueprint, so there's little doubt that the effusive Audrey and the corporate Griffin will get together in the end. Someone says, "The best paths take you to unexpected places." By design, this movie doesn't do that. But even for a Christmas movie, in which hate-first-love-later is the go-to formula, the romantic leads seem deliriously incompatible. Audrey's default mode is adamant and upbeat, which makes her a bit hard to take. When she bumps into a guy who reveals he doesn't share her Christmas obsession, he's dismissive but she's downright rude. Audrey couldn't suppress a feeling -- outrage, frustration, disapproval -- if world peace depended on it.

In her first movie role, Kloots, a host of CBS' The Talk, fitness personality, and former Rockette, co-wrote the script, seemingly unaware that successful characters and plots undergo modulations. She comes out teeth blazing, her high energy eating up scenes, with enthusiasm manifesting in screams, anger conveyed in actual "grrrrrs." With experience, if she tones down the manic effect, her generally warm presence could be a welcome addition to the genre.
