Good escapist fun.

I enjoyed the film and particularly liked the way Jen was played. I thought the review on this site was rather sniffy. It was a good humoured, unpretentious bit of fun and I recommend it. We’ll done the cast and production team and thanks for providing a pleasant evening’s entertainment.

Worst ending ever seen

Pointless wasted my time watching a truely rubbish acting scottish strange film for nothing.Was left fuming at the ridiculous ending. Regret watching was left depressed and couldn,t get to sleep. They wouldnt walk away like that after their time they shared and how far they went. Hated it. Made me feel terrible after thanks. Clare Grogan,s acting was as good as her Happy Birthday song years ago, really bad. Worst film ending ever.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

A painfully predictable plot, clunky script, and general lack of energy give this generic holiday film a lackluster feel. Even as characters are forced apart, come together, and get lost in the snow, the story never quite hits its highs and lows convincingly enough to create much drama or emotional investment.

Highland snowscapes look naturally beautiful, and scenes in the pub might have been good fun if the movie leaned into the off-kilter quirkiness of the landlord and locals with a little more spirit. Even what should be the joyful relief of a Christmas celebration never musters up much of a festive feel, leaving the overall experience lacking the sparkle a holiday movie like this so desperately needs.
