Conventional to the point of death by boredom, this harmful holiday-themed rom-com should be avoided at all costs. Candace Cameron Bure (FULL HOUSE) plays a workaholic businesswoman sent to audit a ski lodge for her father during Christmas. Naturally she forms an instant antipathy to the lodge-owners’ son played by Jesse Hutch (THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT). She is the Grinch - they are the spirit of Christmas. Cue lots of oh-so-funny scenes of her falling over trying to ski, and kicking up a fuss wearing unflattering winter clothes. And all so predictably, we soon find out that the two star-crossed lovers have more in common than they think. They’re both less than happy with how their families handle Christmas - she doesn’t really get it, and he gets it for 7 weeks of the year. She learns to love some of the traditions of the ski lodge and he likes her idea to partly modernise its activities. You can join the dots and fill in the rest of the film. There’s nothing really objectionable here, but neither is their anything new, unique, truly funny or worth watching.

LET IT SNOW has a running time of 82 minutes.
