12 Dates of Christmas 2011 7 out of 10

12 Dates of Christmas  2011  7 out of 10

This movie was basically a Christmas version of Groundhog’s Day with a magical focus on the 12 Days of Christmas.   The movie stars Amy Smart and Mark Paul Gosselaar .  A women passes out on Christmas Eve in the middle of a department store after being sprayed  by perfume.  She finishes out the day after making a series of bad decisions alone with her ex’s dog.    She wakes up the next day on the floor of the department store again (just like in Groundhog’s day) and has to live the night over and over again until some magical force decides she finally got it right.   It was a cute holiday movie which was interesting because of its magical storyline…. (Who hasn’t wanted to relive a day in hopes of a different outcome? ) The story worked well, but feel short of some of the elements that made the movie it copies such a classic.   In Groundhog’s day the main character as played by Bill Murray became a much better person as a result of his experience.  His character went through a much bigger change so the ending was more satisfying.  I didn’t really feel that Amy Smart’s character needed to go through a big character transformation, she wasn’t an unpleasant person at the beginning of the story, but instead just unlucky in love.
