    Awesome, Cool, Great Movie!

    Holiday in Handcuffs is a really great movie because it¿s funny, romantic, and a Christmas movie. The director of this movie is Rone underwood. The author is Sarah Endsley. The main actors of this movie are Melissa Joan Hart, Mario Lopez, Timothy Bottoms, Marke Post, and Layla Alizada. The first time I saw this movie, I wanted to, and did, watch it over, and over again. It is a comedy, and its also a romance. It¿s a great movie to sit down and watch with your family. This movie is about a girl who is going to her parents house for Christmas. Her boyfriend broke up with her, and she needs a guy, because her parents are always disappointed in her. She was working at the restaurant, while she saw this guy. She kidnapped him, for him to pose as her boyfriend. She handcuffed him to her car on her way to her parents. He tried to explain to her parents what happened, but they thought he was just joking. They mingled, while together. They learned more about each other. She Told him about how she would ice-skate when she was younger. She did it for him. You can clearly see that they are perfect for eachother. On Christmas dinner the cop¿s came, since the boy had called his girlfriend, and tell her the situation. She went to the cops and told them. Well, the cops had found him, and on Christmas night, There family was in handcuffs, in other words, in jail. They were all angry, and of course disappointed in her for what she did. She Went outside, and saw Mario, and they talked. His fiance now came and made him leave. He couldn¿t stop thinking about her. On Valentines Day, Mario kidnapped her. He took her blindfolded, and said exactly what she said, when she kidnapped him. He brought her to this beautiful place with lights, and flowers. It was absolutely gorgous! He took her blindfold off, and then I think you know what happened. They got married, had some children, and lived happily ever after! You really oughta see this movie. It has pretty much everything you would want in a movie. It can really relate to some people also. Its something that could happen. The first thing I thought when I saw this movie was that it was different. It¿s a comedy about a kidnapping, and it¿s romantic. That sounds different to me. This is my review on ¿Holiday in Handcuffs.¿ Hope you get a chance to watch it!

    fun holiday flick

    Fun movie for the holidays and a change of pace from all the typical holiday stories. Light and enjoyable. Cast performances were great. The story for Trudie of a 27-year-old trying to make things turn around for herself while proving to her parents who she truly is something people can relate to. And hey, if you're gonna kidnap a stranger, great pick with Mario Lopez!

    Disappointing

    I bought this because I thought since it said "ABC Family movie", it would be similar to the movies Hallmark puts out. Totally misleading. It could have been so much better. The language was unnecessary, it had stupid innuendo, and it wasn't romantic at all because Melissa Joan Hart is just too ugly for me to believe that Mario Lopez would fall for her. Please don't waste your money. Try "The Christmas Card" instead.
