Claire can t wait to tie the knot with her handsome multimillionaire fiancé. But her plans for a storybook Christmas Eve wedding in Aspen are derailed when a huge storm paralyzes the entire Rocky Mountain region. Forced to hitchhike to reach the aisle, Claire meets widower Wes and his 12-year-old daughter. Though it s hate at first sight for the adults, over the course of their arduous three-day journey, Claire and Wes come to realize that their initial preconceptions about each other are all wrong, and an undeniable attraction develops between them. On the eve of her wedding, Claire is forced to ask herself a surprising question: is Wes, a man who is seemingly wrong for her in every possible way, really Mr. Right? Starring Jennifer Grey and Clark Gregg.
Claire (Jennifer Grey, Dirty Dancing
) has it all: a thriving career as a fashion photographer and a handsome Italian fiancé, Lorenzo. Her wedding is set to happen in five days, on Christmas Eve, when she decides to fly from Chicago to Aspen to surprise Lorenzo--but nothing goes right and Claire finds herself stranded at a truck stop in the middle of nowhere. Fortunately, she gets picked up by Tom (Clark Gregg, The New Adventures of Old Christine
) and his daughter Hilly (Megan Park, The Secret Life of the American Teenager
), who are having their own troubles getting to Grandma's house in time for Christmas. Tom and Claire can't stand each other at first sight… which only means that they're destined for each other in the end. The Road to Christmas
doesn't hold many surprises; this is comfort entertainment, pure and simple. The contrast between pampered princess Claire and rough-hewn Tom (who holds some secrets, however) is standard stuff, and the obstacles to their romance are obvious and obviously dispatched. Fortunately, the engaging cast (particularly Park as the cheerful daughter) makes everything watchable. --Bret Fetzer
