Holiday in the Handcuffs 2007 4 out of 10
Melissa Joan Hart kidnaps Mario Lopez for the holidays in this not so believable Christmas movie. In a movie like this you have to at some point buy into the silly unbelievable story in order to enjoy it.....I never did. In Harry Potter you have to believe in a world where magic is possible (I'm all in) . In Star Wars that there are thousands of worlds with different creatures (I can follow you there) But in this Christmas movie I never bought into Mario Lopez being a reluctant holiday companion. He never tries hard enough to escape and the love story just doesn't seem to have any legs. The premise should have lent itself to funnier situations , but the movie just falls flat. It just becomes a standard Holiday love story. In a month of standard holiday movies this film just gets lost in the shuffle.
