The plot is just too pedestrian, the writing just too limp, and most of the characters just too boring for this to be anything more than a modestly entertaining diversion.
| Original Score: 2/4

It's hard not to hope things work out for everyone, even though you know perfectly they will.

The path of true love may not be smooth but it is predictable in Christmas in the Clouds, a wisp of a movie set in a Utah ski resort run by a Native American tribe.
| Original Score: 2.5/5

Kate Montgomery's agreeably schmaltzy rom-com tempers its near terminal folksiness with stereotype-tweaking irony.

While you may have seen the story before, the offbeat characters and the movie location make you feel like you're treading new ground.

While Vahle and Tosca are the most attractive people onscreen, they are the least interesting characters.

There are few highs and lows. And after a while all this middle-of-the road blandness wears out its welcome.

A spin on familiar material, it's aimed at those who like their movies on the warm side.

While it's understandable some might appreciate Christmas in the Clouds merely for what it attempts to be, it's inexplicable to extol the film on that basis alone.

... a welcome alternative to big studio family films filled with squealing kids, body functions and pratfalls.

Amiable and frivolous, Christmas in the Clouds works mostly because of an appealing cast and an attractive setting.

Not quite laugh-out-loud funny, but pleasant.

A good-natured indie that's been kicking around the festival circuit since 2001, and is finally getting a much-deserved distribution.

Christmas in the Clouds won't knock your socks off, but it's so old-fashioned and low-key that it sticks out from the holiday movie pack.

Although nearly every aspect of the plot is predictable, Christmas in the Clouds produces a delightful surprise: a warm glow that you take home with you.

This is a Hallmark movie with high production values -- and so what? It's gently funny and genuinely good-hearted.

With its schmaltzy romance, slapdash mistaken identity and heartwarming finale, Christmas in the Clouds belongs on 'Lifetime.'

A holiday charmer involving mistaken identity, Native American enterprise, and critter-free gourmet cookery.
| Original Score: 3/4
Jeff Vice
Deseret News, Salt Lake City
December 2, 2005
This all-too-predictable comedy-drama of misunderstandings, which was featured in the 2001 Sundance Film Festival and has been in limbo up until now, is not much different from a typical television movie made for the Lifetime cable channel.
