Holiday in Handcuffs 2007 4 out of 10 (Holiday Movies:# 1)

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.
