A Boyfriend for Christmas Photos

Movie Info

Way back when she was 13 years old, lonely Holly Grant (Kelli Williams), envying the busy social lives of her best friends, made a wish to receive a boyfriend for Christmas. Instead, Holly was given a glass globe, ostensibly by "Santa Claus" himself, with the attached message that her wish would be granted within the next two decades. Flash forward 20 years: Now a dedicated pro bono attorney, the still-unattached Holly has experienced great success in making everyone happy -- except herself. Enter two men in our heroine's life: Ted Powell (Bruce Thomas), her onetime high school heartthrob, and some guy calling himself Doug, who strangely resembles a person whom Holly ardently dislikes -- and who may well be the answer to the wish posted to Santa twenty years before! A Boyfriend for Christmas originally aired over the Hallmark channel on November 27, 2004.

    Simplistic and predictable, yet very romantic. Don't let the title and the first ten minutes fool you into not watching this film. The chemistry between Kelli Williams and Patrick Muldoon was fantastic, it may seem cheesy at times, but it's fast paced and full of cutesiness

    Typical tv xmas movie, I don't know why I inflict these on myself. LOL. It was okay. Nice, but predictable romantic story with an ending you could pick a mile off. Cast are all nice in it, but underwhelming.
