“A Winter Getaway” – Hallmark Movie Review

📸: Hallmark Gold Crown

I give this movie 3 out of 10 vomits

🤮🤮🤮

🟢 Plot 🟢

When an average guy is gifted a luxury trip, he is mistaken as a millionaire, but then sparks fly with the lovely concierge. Will she feel the same way about him when she learns the truth?

🟢 The Stars 🟢

Nazneen Contractor – Courtney

Brooks Darnell – Joe

🟢 Non Spoiler Spew 🟢

The Meeting of Our Future Couple

Courtney thinks Joe is the millionaire client she is supposed to be planning a trip for. So when he gets to the air strip she is treating Joe like royalty and Joe has NO IDEA what is happening.

Writing

The writing could have been better. It was already a pretty thin line they were walking on. I can see why they liked this storyline, but I feel that someone who does this professionally would have guessed he was not who she thought he was. Well, yes I know that not ALL rich people are the same. I really understand that. But Courtney made it seem like all they clients she gets are al l pretty much the same. So I did not get why she wouldn’t see right through Joe.

Also, how did Joe not know exactly what he was in for since it was a gift from his best friend? Like how come his friend did not tell him everything that he was going to be receiving in this gift.

Aaaaand how come Joe could not tell Courtney the truth in the beginning? Like how come he couldn’t just say that his friend gifted him this trip?

Like why all the secrecy when the trip is still all paid for by a millionaire, but it is gifted to a friend so he could enjoy a vacation to its fullest. Maybe it was something I missed?

Chemistry

The chemistry between the two leads was at least ok. I just felt the character Joe was trying to be waaayy too laid back. Like just be a normal person. I could not see them being together in the beginning. But when Nazneen and Brooks finally relaxed with each other it was totally believable that they were enjoying their time together and becoming friends. So at the end I could totally see them being an actual couple.

Likes and Dislikes

The music was super loud at the end of this movie. It was upsetting because Joe is telling Courtney everything he feels for her, but it all gets muffled by the music. Honestly the whole exchange between the two was muffled by the background music.

I was a fan of the scenery. The mountains and the hotel were flipping nice! Oh! I LOVED that they did go dog sledding. Now that I have seen that I want to Google who allows this. That would be such a fun adventure.

🟢 Watch or Don’t Watch? 🟢

This movie was blah. I say skip it. If you want to watch it just to check it off your list then go ahead. But this movie really isn’t worth your time. Such a shame too because it had potential.
