"Let it Snow" starring Candace Cameron Bure


MOVIE REVIEW

Let it Snow

Network: Hallmark Channel

Original Air Date: November 30, 2013





CAST:

Candace Cameron Bure ... Stephanie Beck
Jesse Hutch ... Brady Lewis
Alan Thicke ... Ted
Gabrielle Rose ... Karla
Dan Willmott ... Paul






PLOT:


The story of a driven hotel executive intending to transform a family owned lodge into the new winter, premier hot spot.

When Falcon Resorts acquires family-owned Snow Valley Lodge from retiring owners Karla and Paul, driven executive Stephanie Beck must spend the week before Christmas in Maine, preparing a proposal on the property's renovations. Determined to impress Falcon's president, her detached father Ted, Stephanie reluctantly departs her warm Arizona home to immerse herself in the lodge's property and decide how to change it to fit the hip, young Falcon brand. While preparing to rebuild the Snow Valley Lodge from the ground up, Stephanie butts heads with her property guide, Brady Lewis, Karla and Paul's son, who has decided to leave his family's business over creative differences with his dad.

A self-defined Grinch, Stephanie begins her stay at Snow Valley Lodge immune to Christmas sentiment. But as the lodge's festive traditions provide the Christmas Stephanie never had growing up with her distant father, Stephanie finds herself enjoying every minute. To complicate her professional duties even further, the combative feelings she felt toward Brady turn into romantic ones. With Stephanie's newfound Christmas spirit and unexpected holiday romance, she begins to question Falcon's overhaul. As her Christmas Eve deadline approaches, Stephanie must weigh her loyalty to her new friends against the complicated relationship with her father and decide if she should transform the lodge into a new winter hot spot, or embrace tradition and let it snow!





Just a little more plot detail, from an interview Candace did with AKA Mom Magazine:

Candace on "Let it Snow" Movie: "This movie is about two people finding themselves and finding their identities in the midst of, and really in spite of, their family issues. Simply put, it’s a romantic comedy, obviously set at Christmas time."

  2. This sometimes-breezy romantic comedy tries hard to melt your heart with its snow-globe sweetness, but the strained quirkiness and not-quite-credible characters make the fluffy Snow more flaky than fun.

  3. Actually, Thick played Candace's brother's father on Groing Pains!

    Candace was on Full House!

    1. Yes, Anonymous, that is right! Alan Thicke has portrayed the father role to both Kirk and Candace Cameron, who are "real-life" brother and sister.

      I also mentioned this above: "...the movie also stars Alan Thicke, He portrayed Kirk Cameron's father on "Growing Pains" and he will portray Candace's father in "Let it Snow"."

  10. Does anyone know of a link for a printable version of the "dream of your future spouse" ritual Candace (as Stephanie) did before she went to bed. The little girl who tells Candace's character about it, refers to it as "the fest of st Thomas day. I've searched & searched & am still empty handed. I have a spinster Aunt who will get a kick out of it. Thank you.

      The Feast of Saint Thomas
      "Swiss tradition has it that on the night of the feast of Saint Thomas a spinster can meet her future husband in her dreams.
      First, she must step on a stool and get into bed. Then, she must stand on her bed and take off her shoes. Then she must spin around 3 times and throw her shoes at the door. Finally, she must sleep with her feet on the pillow at the head of the bed. If she follows these instructions perfectly, that night she will dream of the man she is destined to marry."

  11. I have to say that I loved "Let it Snow" the best this year. I loved Candace Cameron Bure in the movie. Any movie I've ever seen with Candace have always made it to the to the top of my must see movie list and they never disappoint. I wish there were more Christmas movies with her like this one. I loved the down home feel. If you want to truly get into the Christmas spirit then this is a must watch for all!

  12. The best Hallmark Christmas in 2013. Let it Snow, was by far the best. I loved the chemistry between Stephanie and Brady. I must have watched it 10 times, and love it each time. Wish they would make a follow up with both Brady and Stephanie together.
