Product Description

CHRISTMAS IN PARADISE

Two bereaved families take a holiday vacation to an exotic Caribbean island to escape the memories of Christmas past. Dan Cassidy s (Colin Ferguson, Eureka) wife has left him and his teen daughters for another man. Dana Shaw (Charlotte Ross, Glee) recently suffered the death of her husband, leaving her alone with their two teen sons. The parents and kids develop bonds on a cruise ship and their stay at a beach resort. When Dan's ex-wife shows up to reclaim her family, what promised to be a happy Christmas turns emotionally complicated as each character has to sort out their feelings and choose their own path.

DECK THE HALLS

Holly (Gabrielle Carteris, Beverly Hills, 90210) returns to her hometown with her eight-year old son, Ben, to work for her father's toy business. Soon after, Ben watches a man (Steve Bacic, Big Love) move in next door with a sleigh, red suit, and lots of Christmas goodies. Ben begins to believe that their new neighbor is Santa Claus, and devises a plan to set up his mom with Santa Claus.

Customer Reviews

A great beginning for families trying to make things more bearable.

The children actors are talented and I love all the hocky singing and prancing about.

These are both family oriented Christmas films. The cable channels run them both every year at Christmas time. They are both light-hearted films that are fun for every member of the family. I bought them because I like to watch inspirational movies like these all through the year. You can't beat the price and I don't believe anyone who loves Christmas would be disappointed by either film. I whole-heartedly recommend both these films. Both of my thumbs are up. CHRISTMAS IN PARADISE is a story of two single-parents vacationing in the Caribbean with their children. A divorced father with his two daughters and a widowed mother with her two boys. The children connect and so do the parents, when all of a sudden the father's former wife shows up and wants to get her family back. It all comes to a happy ending and the two families take off from the hotel together. DECK THE HALLS, is an extremely touching fantasy. A widowed mother moves with her adolescent son back to her home and goes to work as CFO for her father's toy company. Her dad has hired a Christmas specialist named Nick to boost sales. Turns out that Nick is really Santa Claus and the story has a very happy ending. Both are wonderful family films.

These movies are pretty good and the cast play their parts very well. It was a bit hard to believe the boy in 'Deck The Halls' was only 8 when the part was clearly played by and older child. Otherwise, I enjoyed both movies and would recommend them for any family viewing.

The 411:
These movies are good if you love Christmas movies and if you are fan of Lifetime Movies. Maybe not in my top 20 Christmas movie list but definitely movies I would watch again.

In Christmas in Paradise, we meet two families celebrating the Christmas Holiday while taking a cruise into the Caribbean. One family is without a father and the other without a mother. The parental units are missing for different reasons; one has passed away and the other has abandoned the family.

Each family is having a difficult time and when they end up befriending each other, the families share a sense of healing and understanding. Eureka's Colin Ferguson and the beautiful Charlotte Ross from Glee are the struggling single parents and they both play their roles very subdued allowing the children to shine. Colin Ferguson spends most of his time making "I am so ashamed of you" and "Please let me help you faces." The children actors are talented and I love all the hocky singing and prancing about. I even love the rebellious daughter who is doing anything to show how much she doesn't care and the precocious younger sister who seems to have all the answers. Very cute movie. I love happy endings.

Deck the Halls stars Gabrielle Carteris of 90210 fame and a new face for me who is complete eye candy, Steve Bacic.

This is about a widowed woman named Holly who moves back to assist her father's toy company with her 8 year old son, Ben. As the CFO she is trying to wrangle the over spending by her father's favorite employee Nick. Nick has been hired to boost sales and with his swarm of midget friends and reindeer pets, Ben believes he has finally met Santa.

People who love these movies will disagree with me but neither of these movies appealed to me. I actually clicked on the wrong button because I would not have ordered these. I love Christmas movies and find few that I can't sit through but these movies fit in that category. I have two shelves of Christmas movies but this is no longer there. I gavei it away.

These movies are nice to watch around the holiday. The actors are believable and the message gives the viewer an interesting subject to think about.

Christmas in Paradise has two families coming together on a Christmas Holiday vacation to a tropical country. One is a widowed Mom with two sons and the other a man whose wife had run off with another man and left him with two daughters. Just when they are on the verge of their romance the cheating mother returns thinking all is to be forgiven. Aria Wallace was absolutely great as the youngest daughter. A major flaw I felt was having the oldest daughter so self-absorbed, disrespectful and cruel at the beginning that her turn around was totally unbelievable. The directer had her too dislikeable.
Deck The Halls was a cute, silly movie. Entertaining, but it had a erratic feel to it. The directing or editing, something did not give it a smooth feel. The storyline has a crazy fun loving toy maker bringing in a outlandish character to help turn the business around. Steve Bacic (secretly Santa) plays the goofy beach bum style character that brings about the change while helping the toymaker's grandson and loosing up his uptight daughter (as usual in a lifetime movie one of the love interests is a widow or widower) to love again with her childhood sweetheart. Fun movie.
