. As Christmas approaches, Amelia Hughes (Anderson), a career-focused Chicago app developer lacking in holiday spirit, returns to her small hometown of Christmas Creek to rediscover the meaning of Christmas. There, she reunites with her childhood best friend Mike (Huszar) and her estranged uncle Harry (Weber), whose mysterious rift with Amelia’s father divided her family during the holiday season when she was a child. As she engages in local holiday festivities – and begins falling for Mike – Amelia finds herself feeling the Christmas spirit and looking forward to Harry’s Christmas Eve tradition of delivering toys to needy children in his small, private airplane. Meanwhile, Harry begins repairing his damaged relationship with his ex-girlfriend Pamela (Kari Matchett). But as she helps prep Harry’s airplane for the toy delivery, a shocked Amelia learns her parents have unexpectedly shown up in town for the holiday and is crushed when her father and Harry resume their longstanding feud. On Christmas Eve, disappointed by her family’s continued fighting, Amelia prepares to return to Chicago and leave behind Christmas Creek and her budding romance with Mike along with it. But just as she’s about to leave, she feels a burst of inspiration that just might turn things around and help her finally restore family peace and embrace romance as love prepares to take flight for Christmas.

    The main actors were rather wooden… without much chemistry… the best part was Stephen Weber…But it was a passable Xmas story…

    Sorry, but here goes on an honest review.Very boring. Little story with bland acting. I like Hallmark movies but this one was soooooo boring. It piled a bunch of uncaring people into scene after scene of what was advertised as a Christmas movie. Hallmark needs to step it up in the production department.Rating-4 Lumps of coal in Christmas Creek stocking.

    7/10 – holiday fun with Hallmark and full of familiar tropes

    Most of this film was cute & enjoyable.The female lead’s nickname Mels for Amelia. The mentions to airplanes and Amelia Earhart.Cute premise, some of the secondary characters were grating.But all in all a cute showing.

    First things first: There are “cliffhanger” kisses (spoiler alert…hopefully the only spoiler)Thankfully, it’s not all there is to this movie. FEELINGS, nothing more than feelings (I just mean, this is not really a review):This movie is about the love for family, and its importance…of letting people in…and maybe, also about the true meaning of Christmas.I like the chemistry between Steven Weber and Kari Matchett. There’s something so real about the way they look at each other.Thankfully I also like the chemistry between the two leads, Tori Anderson and Steven Huszar.The little girl, Scout, played by Lyla Elliott, is more than adorable. She may only be a supporting character, but she was able to internalize well. She longed for her father, but she still was able to exude the joy within. Troy Bundle and Janet Porter play her parents. They were believable enough.Vanessa Matsui(Carrie, Amelia’s Executive Assistant and friend) is a natural, but she wasn’t able to display it much here. Still, she made the most out of her role.Byron Abalos, Nathan, well, he did what he could with the role given to him. He’s good.Anyways, instead of doing a roll call and give more spoilers, I think I’ll just say that yes, there are predictable stuff, but there are some surprises too. Thanks for your time.:-)

    Obviously with the sheer volume of movies Hallmark puts out at Christmas they can’t all be great. This one was ok but nothing particularly special or memorable. Tori Anderson was delightful, hopefully she gets another shot as a Hallmark lead in the future.

    Another Hallmark Christmas favorite. The cast (Tori Anderson, Stephan Huszar and Steven Weber) did a phenomenal job. The movie focused on finding the meaning of Christmas amongst a lingering family feud between Ameila’s father and uncle. Family and forgiveness are the key. The writer, Kirsten Hansen, brings to life a fabulous family Christmas movie.

    Really good acting. Love it when Hallmark uses “old” actors like Webber. They bring nuance and feeling to the story. Tori is really good. Genuine. A really good Hallmark movie is one where you don’t even want to go to the bathroom for fear of missing a few words. This wasn’t one of them. Try to change up the Hallmark predictablility of how the movie progresses. We all know how it’ll end. Duh. That’s why we love Hallmark. Add a few twist, turns and hooks. Thanks Hallmark.

    Review Date 7/13/2019I have Reviewed OVER 500 “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 made. Since 2014 I average 100 a year. As Christmas approaches, Amelia Hughes, a career-focused Chicago app developer lacking in holiday spirit, returns to her small hometown of Christmas Creek to rediscover the meaning of Christmas. There, she reunites with her childhood best friend Mike and her estranged uncle Harry, whose mysterious rift with Amelia’s father divided her family during the holiday season when she was a child.This was a nice story and Steven Weber was shockingly very good. I love again that they don’t make the career woman a heartless villain. In fact she is the hero of this story!

    I know I love a movie when I find myself smiling most of the time throughout the scenes

    Tori Anderson as Amelia Hayes does a wonderful job of carrying this fun holiday movie. Stephen Huszar as Mike does a nice job of being an childhood and maybe love interest of Amelia’s. Steven Weber plays Amelia’s estranged Uncle Harry who runs the family Lodge in Christmas Creek. The beautiful Kari Matchett does a effortless job playing Pamela who used to be Harry’s girlfriend. Lyla Elliott as Mike’s niece Scout steals every scene she is in. Return to Christmas Creek does feel familiar but at the same time new. If you are looking for a nice way to spend a under 2 hours on a Christmas movie I think you will enjoy this movie.
