#31DaysOfChristmas: Christmas with You


Watched on: Netflix
Duration: 1 hour 29 minutes
Originally aired: 
Directed by: Gabriela Tagliavini

Follows a pop star who's got a career burnout and escapes to a small town where she finds not only inspiration but a shot of love.


Angelina is a singer a little past her prime, facing being replaced by a hot new singer. She's been struggling to write anything new and is becoming irrelevant. Her producer suggests she write a Christmas song to stay relevant, because it worked for Mariah Carey. 

After being bumped off a cover photo shoot in favor of the new girl, she makes the impulsive decision to go make a fan's dream come true. On a whim she drives to the fan's school, that was conveniently tagged in her geotagged video, just to take a selfie with her.

This movie features getting snowed in by a blizzard, ugly Christmas sweaters, tamale making (which I'm only assuming is somewhat of a tradition for hispanic families) a Christmas benefit, and a brand new hit Christmas song. And an artist realizing that competition isn't necessary. There's enough room for both of them. 

This movie is borderline a Christmas movie. It doesn't hold all the Christmas magic I expect, but I think it has just enough to qualify, but just barely. The major highlights were Freddie Prinze Jr and an amazing quinceanera dance.
