This was really sweet - great musical numbers (gotta love a song with the chorus "The square root of impossible is me!"), gorgeous costume & hair design. I hope this gets some 'Fathom Events' seasonal theatrical showings next Christmas.

Yay Netflix Christmas romcom season is among us!

We previewed this before showing it to my young kids and it was delightful, if a bit overlong. The musical numbers were fun, the bad guy was cartoony enough to not be really scary, and the main character was sweet and funny and determined. Most of it didn't feel especially Christmassy, but I'll happily watch it again!

Yeah, I think they could have trimmed it a little bit in places -- the snowball fight for sure. I mean, I'm not sure how I was meant to feel about the ending of that scene; maybe if they hadn't cast the snowball-ed policeman as a white guy it would have been funny, but instead it kind of took me out of the moment and into thoughts of our current state of police brutality.

We got a new tv today for some ridiculous reason and it’s got a very nice picture-OLED?-this was a fabulous first thing to watch on it. We loved it all-the cast, the music, the visual design.

Finally had the time to catch this and it was delightful!
