Zoey Deutch and Kendrick Sampson star in this lukewarm adaptation of best-selling author Melissa Hill’s 2011 book about two couples whose lives are intertwined when Christmas presents go wrong. While it’s certainly a step up from most rom-com schlock you see these days, the super-quick (and unrealistically painless) resolution cheapens what could have been a solid, heartfelt film. But, then again, this is clearly designed as the kind of thing you have on in the background while decorating a tree.

3/5 stars
