a struggling baker in a small town, receives a handmade Christmas Calendar from a secret admirer.

This movie had the potential to be a 10. Good plot, great casting, and especially Laura Bell Bundy. The problem is someone gave our leading man a fake french accent which messes up everything! He could have been from Philly or Chicago and the story line would have worked better without the dreadful fake accent. I could not fully enjoy this movie because of it. The best part of the movie was Laura Bell Bundy. She brought charm, feeling, and humor and made a poor movie watchable. The male lead was really good until he started speaking. my score 4

The very under-baked calendar

'The Christmas Calendar' has a very appetising title. While it was not an innovative one, the concept also sounded promising. Part of me was rather wary though, having seen and heard lots of people disliking the film and for many of my past Christmas film viewings the general consensus has more often than not spot on or close to. Have been known to have some contrarian opinions myself so was preparing myself for being pleasantly surprised.

Only to be met with disappointment. 'The Christmas Calendar' is one of those films that does nothing with any of the promise it had and is a very weak and under-baked film overall, despite having a few good things in the mix. While there are worse Christmas films and worse films out there, there are so many flaws here in 'The Christmas Calendar'. All big and the worst of the flaws are quite terribly executed. Of all the recently viewed Christmas films, this is one of the worst.

As said, 'The Christmas Calendar' has a few good things. It looks good, the scenery is attractive enough and well complemented by the photography. Some of the soundtrack is pleasantly nostalgic.

Laura Bell Bundy is the best thing about the film though. She has a very lively presence and is very charming.

Sadly that can't be said for the rest of the cast, the supporting cast all overact in very colourless roles and Brendan Zub is too stiff and intense as the male lead. Much has been said about his accent and understandably, it is distractingly awful and gives him too much of a creepy vibe. His chemistry with Bundy is barely existent and any signs of it has no spark and doesn't look comfortable. The relationship is severely under-cooked and doesn't develop. None of the characters are well developed and their negative character traits are overdone, only Emily is halfway rootable.

Furthermore, the script is not too brilliant either. Too half-baked and veers on sugary as well as bland. It often sounds awkward as well. The story lacks charm, heart and any conflict, is paper thin and never gets into gear. Everything is obvious from the get go and there are too many less than realistic contrivances in a film that plays it too safe, yet another film as well to finish on a prematurely obvious and too tidy note.

Overall, weak. 3/10

This movie ruined TV Christmas movies for me. Despite loving Hallmark movies in the past, I just don't feel like I want to watch them anymore after watching this a few weeks ago. I loved Laura Bell Bundy and there were plenty of Christmas shenanigans in the movie, but it was just too much. This movie broke me. However, I did love the fight they had in the middle of the street.
