A workaholic Doctor would rather spend the Christmas eve at work, than spend some quality time with her boyfriend. He obviously dumps her. So is she going to find a new guy to make the holidays easier, or find a way to work out things with her long-time partner?
Directed by Jerry Ciccoriti, the 2022 movie ‘Angel Falls Christmas’ is a decent looking movie as far as the ‘festive mood’ goes. The story is pretty basic, but with a better cast, it could’ve been a lot more entertaining. Jessica Lowndes plays Ally, the work-obsessed doctor who doesn’t celebrate Christmas, David Reale is her boyfriend Josh, who is tired of playing second-fiddle to her work commitments and there’s Chad Michael Murray as Gabe, a handsome new stranger in Ally’s life who can turn things around for her. All three actors look like plastic dolls come to life, and not in a good way… they don’t have the charm to keep things interesting.
I mean… I don’t even know what to say about this film, it was hard to care about anything that’s happening. Jane Luk plays a character called Maureen, who pretty much pops up everywhere with a ‘know it all’ smile. She is supposed to be likable, but ends up being unnecessary and annoying. To the writers’ credit, the ending is a lot more realistic than most Christmas themed romances, as in, the climax makes sense and isn’t extremely cliched, but with all the boring stuff happening through the runtime, one couldn’t care less about it. Stream something else. Or give it a shot on Netflix.
It’s a 4/10 from me.
