Yesterday I decided to watch the first Christmasy thing I could find on Netflix that I hadn't previously seen and you know what? It cold have been worse.
Holiday Engagement is a 2011 romantic comedy and it's basically the seasonal version of the Debra Messing film, The Wedding Date. Nothing groundbreaking. Nothing Original. Pretty Corny. But still pretty sweet.
The movie follows a struggling writer, Hilary (Bonnie Somerville) who has just been dumped by her fiance days before he was due to meet her demanding mother (Shelley Long) over Thanksgiving weekend. And as any rational person would do (?) she decides to hire an actor (Jordan Bridges) to play her now fictitious future husband.
I think you are all capable of predicting how the rest of the story pans out.
So, like I said, nothing amazing but I have certainly seen worse romcoms and seasonal films alike so if you're stuck for something to watch and you're in the mood for some fluff, this is a possibility.
