2014 - A CHRISTMAS MYSTERY - No 8, that's all I could take.

Enough was finally enough.  Trying to get through contemporary Christmas films finally led me to the conclusion that all of these films suck.

Let's get this one out of the way, some actor named Esme Bianco is a hard hitting but hot reporter trying to figure out why her father disappeared years ago when she was 12.  Joined in her investigation is a piece of beefcake private investigator.  I don't have to paint anyone a picture where the plot of this one is going.

As seems to be the pattern with these Christmas films, this one has nothing to do with Christmas other than to provide a background for the lame mystery story the viewer has to sit through.  A Christmas Mystery is just another light weight love story featuring very good looking people who exist only in the world of white bread entertainment. 

If you are looking to evoke the spirit of Christmas, it's probably best to avoid these films and probably spend your time going to church or reading the Bible.

88 minutes.
