A Snow Globe Christmas movie review

Once again, we’ve got yet another Peggy Sue Got Married retread (really getting tired of making this reference) with A Snow Globe Christmas, which features completely wasted performances by the much too good for this nonsense Alicia Witt and Donald Faison.

There’s only so much you can say about this movie – it’s sooo repetitive. Shiz, even the Peggy Sue Got Married alternate universe Christmas movie plot is just the same flick we’ve seen from Lifetime a million times. To go even further, the movie is repetitive within itself: most of the main characters lock themselves in a room at one point and refuse to come out; they have the same argument with that old guy in the second act over and over; they keep going back to the same awful sound stage sets and doing/talking about the same things; they even rip off the “and you were there” thing from The Wizard of Oz… It’s a frustrating movie to watch that is predictable from start to finish, which offers absolutely nothing new and beats everything that we’ve seen already in other movies to death with one of those old metal snow shovels. (Hell, there’s even already a Snow Globe Christmas movie out there!  Not to mention the fact that this is almost the exact same movie as Comfort and Joy – this flick is just far shizier.) There’s just nothing that even talents like Alicia Witt and Donald Faison can do to class up this joint. It’s like the saying goes, you can’t… uhm… OK, I’m going to have to make up something now that suites the occasion: you can’t make a gourmet meal with last week’s rancid leftovers.

A Snow Globe Christmas is just the worst kind of trash – it’s not even so bad it’s good, it’s just boring, which is the worst sin a movie can commit. I’m giving A Snow Globe Christmas a 2 out of 10 because I like Alicia Witt and Donald Faison, who are the only reasons I wanted to watch the flick in the first place and finished off the SOB down to the last awful minute.

  1. I agree completely. I watched it for the two main actors (love Donald in everything else I’ve seen him in)…. but couldn’t stay awake for the ending. Yikes! An hour and a half of slow-paced yawn and I don’t know how it ends!

    • You need to see the ending! The Christmas pageant is a sight to behold. If you can figure out why the audience reacts when Donald and what’s her name or dancing please let me know

  2. It’s a real flaw that these Lifetime/Hallmark movies have to fit one of three plots: Alternate Reality married to the highschool sweetheart, Christmas Carol rejig or Secretly Santa/Santa’s child/Santa’s chosen substitute (I just watched an example of the latter where 3 kittens took on the Santa mantle. Needless to say…it’s not as good as 90 minutes of kittens jumping on presents might seem). Glad it’s not just me who gets frustrated by it!
