    Little story, wooden acting and movie just drags. No chemistry between main characters. You may want to pass on this one.

    Saccharine Hallmark movie a bit too simplistic and incredible but watchable for the ending.

    Having recently read the book Pride & Prejudice & Mistletoe, I was expecting this movie to be a film version of the book. But other than the names of the characters and Darcy’s occupation, the book and movie really had nothing in common.I’m not sure why the plot was changed from the book but it didn’t seem to improve the story. I started watching it and just turned it off rather quickly. It was just bad.

    The movie was definitely better than the book. In the book Darcy and Luke barely talk to each other. Darcy and Luke had great chemistry and it was a solid Hallmark movie. However, changing the situation in the movie removed any link to Pride & Prejudice so anyone watching it for a P&P rendition will be disappointed.

    6/10 – one of the most cliché, but always enjoyable Hallmark feature

    Other than some character names not a whole lot to do with Pride & Prejudice.Maybe that was just a gimmick to get folks to watch?Leads were cute, although I don’t buy the whole Lacey err Darcy as an investment banker…Also who is going to carry breakable Christmas ornaments up snowy steps in those kinds of heels!Cute..if you are a Lacey fan..

    This was unusually disappointing. Stiff acting, but worse there was zero chemistry which never works well with love stories. How can casting be so bad? I recognized this was a disaster immediately, and gave up watching soon after. The actors were calling it in and it just didn’t work.It may be less the actors fault than the terrible script and bad directing. But I must blame the actors too because they showed up on day 2 instead of setting their hair on fire.Hallmark, let’s never use any of these folks again as your New Year’s resolution.

    I remembered liking the movie but completely forgot nearly everything about it.

    This one was a pretty solid effort which kept my interest. it was somewhat multifaceted with some interesting corporate politics along with the usual city girl v. small town Christmas. I liked the pairing of Lacey Chabert with Brendan Penny. Lacey is a solid actress, and with this one, she seems to have tamed, a bit, her nervous giggle tick that she seems to have developed in later years. I liked her family, especially Sherry, who was one of the stars in one of my favorite Hallmark-like romances, This Matter of Marriage, which was actually produced by Harlequin. It was great to see her again. This one did feature the usual boring boyfriend, but it was refreshing that she really just let him go and didn’t hem and haw about it.Like another Hallmark movie this year, I think it is pretty shameless to try to reel in Jane Austen fans, with the title of the movie, while not incorporating any of the themes in the actual plot or character. It’s too bad, because the role reversal of the heroine taking the Darcy role, and the hero taking the Elizabeth Bennett role could have been great. i don’t recall that that gimmick has ever been done before. Would have been pretty interesting.

    Review Date 8/5/2019I have Reviewed OVER 600 “Christmas Films, & Christmas Television Movies , & Television Specials”. Please BEWARE Of films and specials with just one review! For instance When “It’s a POSITIVE” chances are that the reviewer was involved with the production. “If its Negative” then they may have a grudge against the film for whatever reason. I am fare. I am on a mission to watch every Christmas Movie ever produced. Since 2014 I average 100 per year.Darcy (Chabert) has always worked hard to prove herself and be successful on her own terms, even choosing to start her own company, rather than work with her father. Returning to her hometown for Christmas, Darcy reconnects with an old rival, restaurant owner Luke (Penny), and they are forced to plan a charity event together. As Darcy spends time with her family and Luke, she starts to realize what matters most in life and sets out to mend her relationship with her father, and possibly fall in love.Nice film. Moves along quickly. Never boring. Well worth watching.

    The whole aspect of the investment business ruined the rest of the movie for me. In some ways it seemed like a placeholder that didn’t really integrate into the rest of the movie. And the rest of it was just average. I wasn’t that impressed with the acting, the chemistry or the other half of the story.

    Lacey Chabert was the best part of the movie, which otherwise was disappointing. Perhaps because her and Brennan Elliott have such great chemistry, virtually any other actor simply is a disappointment. The storyline was ok, but could’ve been better executed. I’m sure I would’ve enjoyed the movie more if the acting was just more believable….Lacey Chabert excluded. Lacey’s acting is always believable.

    Always look forward to this time of year and all the Hallmark movies, especially ones with Lacey, she’s the best, but this one was quite the bore. The lead male is not believably straight and zero chemistry between the two. Hoping the other ones are better…

    Wow. Hallmark seems to be on this corporate woman kick redeeming herself with a Christmas charity/function/party that is starting to get very tired. This was no Christmas story. It could have been about anything but insert Christmas trees and decorations and ta da the dribble becomes a Christmas movie.Lacey C. Is the queen of Hallmark Christmas (sorry CCB), with her best being A Royal Christmas. I also think that Brendan Penney is great as well, but these two just did not have the chemistry at all. Gorgeous leads, but that’s about it. We all know what’s going to happen in a HM movie, but it’s fun to see the characters get there, but if there’s no story, it’s sheer boredom. The HM kisses have become very chaste as well. There’s no passion in them at all and they last, if we the viewers are lucky, 5 seconds?Oh well. There’s still another month to go. Maybe there are some real Christmas movies still left, but this one definitely was not one of them.

    I love Brendan Penny in Chesapeake Shores, but this was hard to watch. It felt so awkward and unnatural. I didn’t feel any chemistry between the main characters.I love Hallmark movies but they’re pumping out new movies at the speed of light. Their plots are all so similar. These movies have become quantity over quality.

    A must watch. One of this year’s best from Hallmark & one I will watch again & again. Lacey Chabert & Brendan Penny are 2 of my favorites & despite other comments, I think they had great chemistry.

    I’m so sorry about the three stars. I wanted to like this movie but it just didn’t work. The performances were stiff and forced, as if the actors were uncomfortable in their roles. Nervous giggles from Lacey who is a much better actress than this. The cast was good but they could only do so much with a poor script and faulty direction. It could’ve been so much better!

    Lacey Chabert and Brendan Penny have great chemistry in this film. It’s based on a book. I liked how they went from enemy’s to lovers. I think that’s what made the story so interesting and also it made it more humorous. I have been extremely impressed by hallmarks Christmas lineup this year and I hope it continues to be that way.

    This was a perfectly serviceable Hallmark Christmas movie starring their queen Lacey Chabert. However, honestly, the movie loses a star for sticking the Pride & Prejudice label on it, when it had no business doing so. Aside from the character names (“Darcy Fitzwilliam”, lol), the movie had absolutely zero to do with Jane Austen’s novel. They would have done better to give her a different last name, title the movie something else and call it a day. If they’d done so, it would’ve rated a solid 5 stars from me.

    Lacey Chabert is at it again kicking off the Hallmark romantic holiday movie season and despite her best efforts, she drowns in this bomb.This movie lacks originality, interesting characters, a magical Santa character, and a plot. Because it literally has the same plot as every other Hallmark holiday movie, it is EXTREMELY boring to watch. The only thing that keeps this movie moving forward is the Mom, who is too dumb to realize what is going on around her so she just makes blanket declarations of directions to everyone else who don’t do much more than default to awkward conversations and fake laughing.”Luke” is the love interest and we are told he used to fight with Darcy and they did not get along back in their days on the debate team – seems fair enough. Except when we meet Luke he is about exciting as an old cat and makes zero impression that he is at odds with Darcy. In fact, he comes across as affable, friendly, and the total opposite of what was implied about his personality. After their first meeting Darcy declares that “nothing has changed” about Luke – yet we as the audience see the complete opposite and this undermines the entire movie.Let’s see how many cliche plot points this one can rack up: Female lead lives in Big City and her family lives in small town – check. Female lead has a “stressful business job” that she does not appear qualified for in any way what so ever – check. Female lead goes home for the holidays – check. Female lead’s lame ex-boyfriend wants to get back together – check. Female lead runs into old love interest – check. All men in the movie are wimpy beta males – check. Upper Middle Class white collar female lead falls in love with small business owner – check. Somebody owns a small business – check. Dad is a prophetic wise old man who gives obvious advice – check. Some sort of big festival/ball/event is the climax – check. Everyone likes to sit and talk around a big empty kitchen table with a giant cup of coffee/tea/cocoa – check. Female lead does not get back together with ex-boyfriend – check. Female lead falls in love with past love interest – check. Female lead has a friend/sister/niece who gives good advice that is often ignored – check. Female lead and love interest kiss with only three minutes left on the DVR – check. Multiple plot holes, unanswered questions, and touched upon but not explained situations are not addressed in final three minutes after the kiss – check.I truly cannot understand how/why Hallmark decided to kickoff their entire season with this hot mess. A film that is nothing but the most banal and over-used plot lines all mashed together…really Hallmark?The stupidest line in the movie is when wimpy bashful Luke says “My phone has a camera!” Wow Luke. That was deep.The only original element to this entire movie is the whole investment banking/finance career for our female lead Darcy. Trouble is, she does not come across as someone who knows anything two ways from Sunday about finance, banking, or demonstrating professional corporate confidence. But, since this is the first Hallmark movie to feature an investment banker female lead, I give this two stars. I give them that credit. Honestly, the stern “client” guy who comes across as a far more likely investment banker had more romantic chemistry with Darcy than Luke. It just didn’t make any sense though how a successful business guy like that needed the services of a young, naive Darcy who seems a much better suited for a career as a Customer Service Representative. How much more could she possibly know about finance and investing than the client guy?Speaking of business, the Dad dresses well, sits around his office and appears all “businesslike” but never really says anything to suggest he has a clue about running a business or finance. He seems more like a retired school teacher or something.Overall this movie was a major disappointment. I hope the remaining 21 new movies for the 2018 season are better, surely nothing can be worse.

    I look forward to Hallmark and Lacy movies and add in a Pride, Prejudice spin and I couldn’t wait… but this was terribly disappointing. Lacy was great but the directing was amateurish. Not up to normal Hallmark standards.

    Not clever, not cute, not interesting. I can’t imagine why this movie was made. Besides the character names, the plot has zero to do with the oft used (A la Bridget Jones Diary, etc.) Pride and Prejudice plot. The characters have zero chemistry, the plot is just really, really boring, there is no drama, suspense or surprise. This uses every corny & over used plot device ever created – and it doesn’t even do them better. It’s just God awful, even for a Hallmark movie.

    Honestly I really do not know where to begin, but this movie was completely boring, there was absolutely NO chemistry between lead actors – I’m talking Zero! I love LC but this movie was not for her. Through just about the entire movie, she always looked depressed, sad, confused and even bored. Her character fell completely flat. I must mention seeing Mark Weibe in a supporting role was really sad, he was so great in A Very Merry Mix Up with AW… he had all of possibly 5 lines in this movie, there wasn’t even any chemistry AT ALL between him and his brother. I’m so sick of the all the fake snow, it’s so ridiculous already, cmon Hallmark, why can’t you film during a true winter season, why must you make us suffer through all the fake flakes? Even the way they dressed LC was wrong, all wrong… and her makeup – with all the red lip stick was awful. She’s absolutely adorable and beautiful but …. NO, her makeup was all wrong. I had such high hopes for this movie because I really love watching LC. I was so bored and so disappointed Mark Weibe didn’t have a stronger character and a larger role. It was like they just threw him in there for a few minutes to stand around and do and say nothing, he’s so much better than that. I could go on and on… in my opinion, this movie was not good. Sorry Hallmark, you missed the mark on this one.

    I love Lacey as an actress in these movies. She brings spirit, animation, heart and relatability to these movies. I love Jane Austen as well and had such high hopes for this movie. There was just so little use of the Jane Austen story line used. I realize that this is based on a book that I have not read, but with so much opportunity from the original novel, how could it be ignored. “Unleashing Mr. Darcy” did a great job in using the material with a modern twist. I wanted to see real conflict between the leads. I like the idea of the reversal of the roles, but where was the pride and the prejudice. Darcy’s refusal to accept help just did not really get the pride concept across. The Fitzwilliam family could have been more snobby and Darcy could have been more superior in her attitude with Luke. Luke could have had an embarrassing family and could have stood up to Darcy in a way that woke her up. Where were the misunderstandings about each other and then realizing that they were both wrong as they got to know each other. It was all there for the picking. It was an easy, enjoyable movie that had the potential to be great. I know those scripts can happen again and will be excited to see them.
