PLOT:

Storyline via Hallmark: When struggling pastry chef Kylie Watson (Chabert) learns she’s made it to the finals of the American Gingerbread Competition, she thinks her competitive spirit has finally paid off and hopes the publicity will help her jumpstart her new cafĂ©. There’s just one problem — the oven she’s supposed to use breaks down right before the contest. Determined to enter, she reaches out to Nick Mazannti (Coco), her old boyfriend from culinary school who gave up his dream of being a pastry chef to take over his family’s pizzeria. Nick allows her to use his industrial pizza oven at night to craft her ambitious gingerbread confections. As the two reminisce about the dreams of their youth, their romance is rekindled. But just as Kylie is on the cusp of taking the grand prize — and embracing true love — things get complicated when her ex-boyfriend takes drastic steps to win her back. Kylie realizes she must embrace the Christmas Spirit or risk losing both the contest and her new love.

  2. Lacey Chabert is the Sweetest! I'm so happy she's the one doing this movie. I look forward to her movies every year, even all the repeats!

    And, there's Lane Edwards from Signed, Sealed, Delivered!

  8. Another Lacey hit! This was my favorite new movie of the weekend. I was not familiar with Lea Coco, but he was great, and he and Lacey played off each other really well. I loved Jonathan Adams as Ralphie. He added a great comedic touch. I'd love to see him return in future Hallmark movies.

  9. I liked the movie, but was a bit disappointed. I grew up collecting the Good Housekeeping December gingerbread house issues so expected the entries to be more spectacular from what was implied to be a national contest. And I was confused that Lacey made a point of saying Ina wasn't an American but then one of the semi-finalists was from Montreal, implying one didn't have to be American for the American Gingerbread contest. Would have made more sense if it was called some kind of regional contest, like the New England gingerbread contest or something. Plus, watching it a second time I caught that this was supposedly Helen, Georgia. I Googled that and it is a real town with a Bavarian theme. However, the Wikipedia article says it averages half a day and half an inch of snow in December. Yet characters were walking outside with a couple of inches on the ground several different days. Must have been an exceptional year! Little nit picks I know, but would have been easy to fix with just a change of location or lack of snow. More Googling showed this was probably based on an annual National Gingerbread Contest in Asheville, NC. I don't know if that organization wouldn't let them use their name, or Hallmark just didn't want to. It would help explain the southern setting. Still an enjoyable Christmas movie.

  13. This is the response I got from Hallmark:
    The music in our movies is purchased in packages designed for movies, Lisa. Unfortunately, it's not generally available to consumers. I'm sorry!“

    1. But some of the songs are so good I want to hear it all day. Recently I discovered the song on Up's A Puppy for Christmas, the song is sooooo gooood, I don't even know the title but I have shazammed it, googled it, I think it is Cant wait to do it all again next year. When they play the preview for With Love, Christmas, I feel like I hear it playing in the background during the preview, so maybe I will hear it again on Hallmark.

      The songs on Harvest Moon are some of my favorite, and I usually find those on Spotify. And of course, Jesse Metcalf songs are the best :)

  18. There's a lot of unhappy people about the last song on The Sweetest Christmas I don't understand why Hallmark is keeping this song a secret I don't know if I can continue to watch Hallmark year after year when they chooses not to make consumers happy this how we find out about all songs we hear them somewhere radio,tv,show or a movie. Very Disappointed in Hallmark
