This is good for a cheesy Hallmark Christmas movie. Lori Laughlin is a great leading lady -- that's actually what drew me to it. And I liked that they made this have not just a romance, but (without spoiling too much) another element to her personal life that needed resolving -- though the addition of this other piece of her story also felt a little tacked on.
The love interest is funny and likeable as well. I find that if I don't like both of the romantic leads, these movies don't resonate as much because I'm not rooting for them as much and/or living vicariously.
As is typical with these sort of movies, some of the side characters were poorly acted. Honestly, that's almost part of the fun with these movies.
Overall, I thought this movie struck a good balance between lighthearted cheesiness (the uber-Christmasy townsfolk mostly delivered that) and drama. I wouldn't easily classify it as either a romantic comedy or a drama for that reason, and that's kind of refreshing, since some of these movies go too far in one direction or another.
