Plot:

Ellie Hartman (D’Orsay) is an aspiring crafter working in her small town’s bakery making famous Christmas Kringles. When the new, big-city CEO Nick Carlingson (Lissing) visits the bakery, he arrives filled with modernization ideas destined to lay off many employees. During his visit, Ellie is to teach Nick how to make a Kringle, and determined to show him it’s the people who make the business a success, not machines. Nick meets more of the employees and townspeople, visits the food bank and begins to see all the kindness that is shared, and he begins to soften – though not convinced automation isn’t better. Struggling with chasing her own entrepreneurial dreams, Ellie begins to fall for Nick but not before feeling betrayed when she inadvertently sees Nick’s laptop filled with automation plans.

    I found there was no chemistry between Daniel and Brooke and she was so annoying, such a shallow person and she was to “up” all of the time, like a Miss USA Beauty Pageant contestant, how is she even a relatable heroine to Hallmark viewers? This was definitely a terrible movie and I had to turn it off, even with Daniel Lissing in it. Hallmark needs to cast him with a compatible actress where they exhibit good chemistry!!

    I expected a lot more from this movie and I was disappointed when I couldn t even find chemistry between both main characters. I know its a Hallmark movie and thus predictable, but here the only thing I liked was Brook D Orsay.

    Very similar or maybe they use they same theme a lot. Corporate guy comes to small homey town to change things in a company and falls for the worker of said company as well as falls in love with the people of the town. Like recycling of a story with a few small changes.

    Because movie makers are more interested in pretty than accuracy. As a retired firefighter, I hate movies or TV shows that show all fire sprinkler heads going off at once. That is NOT how they work, but it makes the scene funny. I had property owners not want to install sprinkler systems because they did not want all heads going off at once if there was a fire. I wonder how many people have been killed or property damaged because of these shows? So just keep these in mind when you are watching that next movie or TV show. What you are watching is probably not realistic, just artistic.

    Christmas in Love was a great feel-good show. It showed people helping people less fortunate than them and blessing them as result!My only regret is this was Part 1 of a 2 part movie and I have yet to find Christmas in Love Part 2 🙄 can anyone help me with my dilemma? I would appreciate it.

    My wife summed it up pretty well “This movie didn’t have it”. She fell asleep both times we watched it. We only got half-way the first time. We watched it again from the beginning and it is a good movie. How can you more delightful actors than Brooke D’Orsay and Daniel Lissing. Their screen presence was amazing and the movie featured the two of them throughout which is what made it good. There was no real excitement in the story and that made it a bit dull. The title did not match the movie. Maybe “Christmas Circle” to emphasize the wreaths Ellie makes. Christmas in Love might have been an OK title, if it had taken place in Love, Missouri. We look forward to seeing these actors next year.

    It’s a good movie to watch during the winter holidays due to its Christmas themes, its wintery landscapes and especially its warmth which comes from its plot’s premise. Speaking of which, it isn’t a big deal but manages to keep the viewer interested most of the time, enough to get him to the finale without a single drop of boredom. It has good and likeable characters and all events seem to flow easily, without anything looking forced or something. The actors are also good enough to make their characters funny, enjoyable and most of all, credible.Unfortunately, it’s a bit linear in terms of storytelling, a bit predictable and it has a tendency to solve big problems way too easily, which a lot of movies have these days. Thus, you don’t get the feeling of drama or suspense as you should.It’s romantic, likeable and even a bit emotional. It’s a good family movie and a great watch during the holidays but not only. It was able to provide a good time for me, thus I can give it a recommendation for everyone seeking a wintery romantic flick.

    I really want to love Hallmark’s Christmas films, but the phony and/or cheap details ruin them. The real plus in this film was the actors especially Brooke D’Orsay. So I rated this film with a six. But… the phony details ruin so much of the story and they are as follows:1. Nobody ever looks really cold; and they never wear real coats. They also never wear warm hats…or gloves…or boots! Also we never see the misty breath which is the hallmark (ha, ha) of freezing temps. 2. There are little patches of snow around, but if you look in the background, you’ll see plenty of deciduous trees, full of green leaves. These should be stripped bare! 3. The sun is WRONG! It has this intense brightness that is only seen in the summer. 4. Ms. D’Orsay runs around the bakery with flowing long hair. NOooo! She should be wearing the same head gear as the workers – or at least be wearing her hair up!This lack of authenticity ruins the film for me. Instead of enjoying the show, I’m nitpicking every small mistake! And every year, I find myself watching fewer Christmas movies and enjoying the ones I watch less!

Its okay but by once you go to sleep you will forget this film.

    This one fell completely flat for me. I like Brooke D’Orsay, but her acting here was saccharine. Daniel Lissing was dull. The story was boring as well. I was ready for it to be over. It didn’t hold my attention at all.

    Very well written script and the actors played very well off each other. The movie showed the value of families and the trust that is the fiber that binds them. It also shows the importance of what employees being to the business and the not always is it about profits. Nicely produced movie for the family and the season of giving.

    It was fun and romantic and flowed really well. The characters are some of my favorites. Their smiles are infectious just as Christmas is.

    Lissing and D’Orsay are the glue that holds together a story that has been told umpteen times. I struggled with some scenes such as the incompetence of the corporate guy (Lissing) in squeezing a tube of frosting. But smiles and laughs of Lissing and D’Orsay brighten many scenes. A six rating is probably generous…but those smiles…

    There is nothing about this movie that isn’t just another Hallmark standard formula but Brooke D’Orsay makes up for it with her charm. She and Daniel Lissing play off of each well which makes what could be a boring movie legitimately enjoyable.

    I love the two lead actors! They’re cute together, and bubbly, and make an overused storyline seem not quite so overused. But it really, Really, REALLY bothered me that she set foot into the food processing area several times with her long flowing hair possibly shedding all over the baked goods!!! Very unhygienic and against code, probably. Why can’t these holiday movies actually show proper procedures around food stuffs.

    Let’s be honest I watched this movie to see Daniel Lissing!Typical plot points…Baking!Incoming CEO wanting to get in touch with the “people”.With holding identity.Someone in need of Christmas Spirit.This one checks all the boxes.Bonus points for the several smoldering kisses!Enjoyable..

    I know I’m prejudiced. There is something about the bright shining face and happy spirit that Brooke D’Orsay does so well. It’s hard not to get drawn into that spirit when she has as much screen time as she does in this movie. Add Hallmark favorite Daniel Lissing and you have a winning combination. Give them plenty of screen time together and it’s a winner.There are only so many ways a plot like this can go. I thought there was a nice tiny twist with the rival. The way the Secret/Lie was discovered was totally natural, not forced. On the slightly negative side, Hallmark movie writers have a tendency to make it sound like the star’s money making talent can be turned into gold, but if you watch many of these movies, that’s not unusual.
