Leighton Meester and Robbie Amell headline this fairly forgettable holiday flick as an ex-couple; she called off their engagement because he spent more time working on work than their relationship. The thing is, she’s such a hit with his family that they’ve kept her in their life, even inviting her for Christmas once they find out he won’t be able to make it home this year. He does after all, though, which naturally makes things a dozen kinds of awkward. Meester and Amell are perfectly fine, which helps the film a little, but the script by ‘Hart of Dixie’ writer Dan Steele never goes as far as it should to make us care about either of these characters. It’s a pass, even as a Freevee freebie.

2/5 stars
