Trivia

The brief shot of the locomotive coming into the station is not a North American scene. The station is Hampton Lode on the Severn Valley Railway, Shropshire, England. The locomotive is a GWR pannier tank No 7714 built in 1930 and looks very different to the more authentic static one in the following scene. See more »

Goofs

The wide shot of the train coming into the station in the snow is a pulled by a British steam locomotive. The closeup shots of the locomotive, with the driver in the cab, are of a completely different North American locomotive. See more »

Trippy
3 December 2016 | by geobear75See all my reviews

This movie doesn't really have any flow and is hard to follow. Rather than feeling like its own show, it feels more like a bad editing job of splicing together every other Christmas movie you've ever seen. Considering that the main character is trying to make the perfect Christmas movie when she passes out, I'm sure this is probably on purpose, but unfortunately the end result isn't good. It feels more like we were dropped into a fun house than a snow globe. Also, the male and female leads didn't demonstrate any believable chemistry, or at least not for more than a second or two at a time. Both actors are terrific, and I've loved them in other shows, but it just didn't work here. It might not be their fault, though. It could be because the movie kept jumping around and never held still long enough to maintain emotion. In any case, your time would probably be better spent watching one or more of the other Christmas movies instead of this trippy imitation.
