Falling for Christmas

It’s that time of year again when the holiday movies start to roll out. Let’s take a look at the first one I’ve watched this year. A 2022 Netflix original romantic comedy Christmas movie titled “Falling for Christmas.” It stars Lindsay Lohan (The Parent Trap), Chord Overstreet (The Hole), and George Young (Containment).

A struggling small time ski resort owner (Overstreet) doesn’t know how he’s going to stay open through this holiday season. He’s tried everything he can think of when he comes across a young woman (Lohan) in the woods who is unconscious from a ski accident. He lets her stay at his resort since she has lost her memory from the accident and doesn’t know who she is. It turns out she is an heiress to a large successful ski resort, and the two start to fall in love.

This one is very Hallmark-esque, it’s the same cookie cutter plot from all Hallmark holiday movies. Someone rich meets an unlikely love interest who is not rich, and love prevails. We’ve seen it done a thousand times. Only big difference is this one has Lindsay Lohan in it, she plays a good role but it’s still cheesy, predictable, and Hallmark-esque. Don’t count on it becoming a holiday classic anytime soon. If Hallmark movies are your thing, you’ll probably love this one, I give it a 5.5/10.
