Christmas Pen Pals (2018) Reviews

  • Great Casting and Acting Counts for a lot.


    Despite the female lead (Sarah Drew) being extremely unlikable and annoying at the beginning, this turned out to be one of the best of the Christmas entries in the Hallmark sweepstakes this year. Probably because it's not really a Hallmark, but on Lifetime. They use the same actors and writers and probably directors, but always seem to be just a cut above the Hallmark movies. The plot had a lot of holes and had some questionable elements. Almost the whole town agrees to be matched up to a pen pal by one woman postmaster? What are her qualifications? How does she go about this? How does she handle last minute entries? How will Hannah and Sam work out the logistics of their coming marriage? How will she incorporate and sell people on the idea of writing letters before meeting face to face per her failing app/ social media company? Will Sam ever follow Hannah's advice and get WiFi for his coffee shop? These burning questions and probably more go unanswered. This movie ended up high on my special Hallmark rating scale because of good acting and appealing actors and actresses. Especially the male lead and Hallmark veteran, Niall Matter. My, was he appealing and had great chemistry with Sarah Drew. Michael Gross of Tremors and Family Ties added his veteran acting chops. The cast of secondary characters was exceptional. A special shout out to Latonya Williams who lit up the screen with her smile. By the end there were 6 match-ups that had some potential. Great job, Santy Claus... uh...Madam Post Master!

  • Good chemistry


    This Christmas movie is my favorite this year. Love the chemistry between Sam and Hannah. Story line is adorable and old fashioned. Perfect for the season.

  • Just better all round then most of the Christmas fare


    The acting in this one was strong, especially on the male side with Niall Matter and a surprise appearance by Michael Gross. It took me awhile to warm up to Sarah Drew whom I am unfamiliar with but I did not dislike her by the end. The supporting characters, especially on the female side were very good. Writing was better then average. Yes as usual with these movies much was already telegraphed 15 minutes in but there were quite a number of moments that brought a smile to the face. As with all these movies you have to overlook all the plotholes and make assumptions about the resolution of many secondary stories which is a bit unfortunate as several of the secondary characters had a nice way about them.

  • Cute story, great acting, good message


    I thought the story was so cute. Loved the old fashioned letter writing with a mix of new technology too - great message underlying a super cute story. Also, emotional! Hit close to home in a couple spots - the writing and acting combined really made me feel connected to the characters and invested in their story. A perfect Christmas love story!

  • Loved this movie!


    Really enjoyed this movie and thought the story played out well. Great acting by all but in particular Michael Gross made the father seem so natural and warm. Well done Hallmark.
