Where Are You, Christmas? (2023)

December 22, 2023

On the 0-Christmas scale I give it a "I Once Was Blind...."

It seems like it has been a while since I’ve seen Michael Rady in a Hallmark. Indeed, an IMDB search shows the last time he as super active in the Hallmark movie family was 2020. So, welcome home Michael.

Michael Rady

In the past, we’ve enjoyed Michael’s films. He has been in The Christmas Bow, You’re Bacon Me Crazy (best title ever), as well as Christmas at Pemberly Manor (2019), which was actually a terrible representation of Austin’s classic. But, not his fault.

Rady plays Hunter, who inherited his grandfather’s auto repair shop, playing opposite Lyndsy Fonseca’s Addy. Addy, has forgotten the magic of Christmas after working in Chicago. The hustle and bustle of big city life has changed her, and although she works in Christmas branding all year, she has lost the Christmas spirit.

This year, rather than going home to the aptly named Red Lake Falls to spend time with family she is planning a trip to the Maldives. But when her brother is planning on engaging to his girlfriend she puts of paradise to support her family.

I’m not going to spoil the rest, but I will just say that car trouble connects the two characters, and then some crazy crap occurs causing everyone to turn to black and white.

Will Addy find out how to get color again? What chaos will ensue? Watch it to find out!

Jim O’Heir

Of note, supporting actor Jim O’Heir was great in this film. Jim is an Emmy-winning actor with a LONG credit list to his name. You most likely recognize him from his time on Parks and Recreation, but he has been on so many films! He is great in this film, just like his others!
