A train wreck of a movie.

Do Not Watch This Movie. I give it an F.

I wanted to watch something before going to bed.  So while I’m puttering around, my roommate starts a Netflix movie.  Holiday in Handcuffs.  Melissa Joan Hart and Mario Lopez play the lead characters.

Hart breaks up with her boyfriend and loses her job just before Christmas.  To save face with her family, she kidnaps Lopez at gunpoint and takes him up to the family’s isolated Christmas cabin.  She tells a rather weak story to her mom and dad so they don’t believe Lopez when he tries to say he was kidnapped.

I can’t watch it.  It’s really bad.  Every moment that is supposed to be funny is just sad and pathetic.  Sometimes embarrassing and downright painful.  The acting comes off as stiff and wooden from everyone except Lopez.

It is like watching a train wreck.  Only a train wreck would be better.  It would be more interesting.

It’s really sad when a disaster with a high likelihood of fatalities is preferable to a movie.
