A painter working as a waitress is dumped by her boyfriend Christmas eve. The stress from the day and her parents expectations lead to her kidnapping a guy from the restaurant she works at.


Don’t read that much into the movie. It’s a made for tv movie. It’s not that serious. So no, Mario Lopez does not have Stockholm (if you want that, how about Beauty and the Beast?).

It’s a cute movie. It had Melissa Joan Hart and Mario Lopez so… who can complain? But that horrible hair Melissa has at the beginning… seriously the thing of nightmares. Take it what it is on the surface.

I’d actually recommend this. It has the usual this that seems to happen in holiday movies (only instead of a misunderstanding, one of the characters is kidnapped). After all, a couple that have nothing to do with each other are put into a situation where they have to pretend they’re going out and a romance starts. In all honesty though, there’s a perfectly good argument against Stockholm. They’re good together. The woman that’s with the guy originally is a bitch and is just with him because she’s supposed to be.


Anyway, go watch it. It’s fun. You won’t regret it. Unless you have crap taste in movies.
