"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails..." (1 Corinthians 13:4-8 NIV)

MOVIE REVIEW


Christmas in Paradise -Lifetime

PLOT:

"Christmas in Paradise" featuring Charlotte Ross (Lifetime's "Nora Roberts' Montana Sky") and Colin Ferguson ("Eureka"). It's a story where two families meet aboard a cruise ship only to have the holiday shattered by a visitor from one of their pasts.


Movie Review:

The young children in this movie were cute, but that's about all. Charlotte Ross's character, Dana, is widowed, while the man she meets on vacation, Dan, is divorced. His ex shows up and really shakes things up. Dan and Dana's older children sneak out together in the middle of the night and end up sleeping in the same bed. Not a wholesome family movie - by any means. The whole movie was slow and not up-lifting. Frankly, it was rather odd. This mariachi band would show up playing and these men dressed as the three wise men. It didn't, honestly, make any sense. While I have always liked Charlotte Ross as an actress, I must say, I didn't care for this movie, at all.
