  • Normally when you hear about a TV movie, even if it is on Disney, you want to run and scream, but not in this case. You sit your but in that seat and watch it.moreless

    When I first saw a preview about this TV movie, I was thinking, "Oh great, another useless Christmas TV movie that will take up Rudolph's time slot and no one will ever watch it." But it just so happened that I was decorating my Christmas tree and I got tired of watching National Treasure, so I went channel surfing and it was either a Spanish soap opera or Holiday in Handcuffs, you could probably guess which one I picked. Well I ended up so interested in it that I couldn't stop watching it and I had to quit decorating my tree. I wouldn't even move unless it was a commercial break. Basically, the general point of this review is to say that this movie really suprised me, and I'm definitely adding it to my favorites.moreless

    This movie was pretty good. I thought it was gonna suck because the previews didn't seem good but when i watched it I changed my mind. When he proposed to her I was like "OMG! That's so mean! Wait, does he mean it? Or is he just doing it to get back at her?!" It was really unexpected! Plus, I thought it was hilarious when they go to the gas station and the guy there gives them furry or fuzzy red handcuffs because he thinks they are "playing dirty"! It was hilarious! To top it all off, they have HOT Mario Lopez in it! Who doesnt think he is cute?! Overall, this movie was pretty good.moreless

    Melissa Joan Hart Wilkerson is such a breath of fresh air in this show! Seriously funny and definitely will become a Christmas Holiday favorite for everyone! The movie will air on ABC Family channel, with a many surprises that you thought you were ready for, but just keep ready for more as Melissa Joan Hart Wilkerson's character, Trudie, takes us through many levels of her superb acting range! Mario Lopez is also a great addition to this Movie made for TV. It is great to see his character's chemistry with Melissa Joan Hart Wilkerson's character develop throughout the movie as we all can relate to the familiarity of our own lives to this TV Movie. Although, I personally don't know of anyone that has kidnapped someone and taken them to her parents and introduced him as her boyfriend.

    All in all, this is such a delightful TV movie, one that will be repeated due to the popular ratings we're sure will come to fruition. Order the movie on DVD as we're sure they won't last on the shelves!moreless
