Title poster for the THE CHRISTMAS SETUP. The title is in red and gold letters. Below Fran Drescher in a red plaid belted top holds mistletoe over Patrick's (in a green sweater) and Hugo's (in a red sweater) heads. Patrick's arm is around Hugo's shoulder and Hugo is kissing Patrick's cheek.

Review: Set Yourself a YuleTubing Date With THE CHRISTMAS SETUP

The Christmas Setup is a sweet movie that sometimes moves more slowly than a line of cars in a 1980s mall parking lot at Christmas-time. Personally, I have a deep wish that they had kept the same storyline of Fran Drescher as a widowed mother determined to set up her home-for-the-holidays, somewhat uptight, big-city lawyer … Continue reading Review: Set Yourself a YuleTubing Date With THE CHRISTMAS SETUP

Title poster for LOVE HARD. Across the top there are red and white draw Christmas lights. Below that in small font is a tagline that reads "A romantic comedy about the lies we tell for love." Below that it says A NETFLIX FILM lovehard (with a small text typing box above the word hard) below that are the stars' names Nina Dobrev, Jimmy O. Yang, Darren Barnet. Nov. 5 Netflix.

On either side are hand drawn pictures of cell phones with a photo of Jimmy O. Yang in one and Darren Barnet in the other.

More YuleTubing With “A California Christmas” & “Home For Christmas 2”

A California Christmas My friend called this A Cowboy Christmas, which is so much better than A California Christmas that I'm submitting a petition immediately to have the name changed.  I have a theory that, depending on their release date, some rom-coms get branded as Christmasy even when they're not. I'm pretty sure A California … Continue reading More YuleTubing With “A California Christmas” & “Home For Christmas 2”

Bright & Shiny Things To Watch (And a Few To Avoid) On The Solstice! Or Whenever Else You Want, Obviously!

Last year I wasn't sure I would review any Christmas movies. (I was going to write Holiday movies there, but there is no point pretending these movies are anything but full-on YuleTubing.) Oh, how the times have changed. This year I have watched and written about so many Christmas movies and shows that I'm concerned … Continue reading Bright & Shiny Things To Watch (And a Few To Avoid) On The Solstice!
