A California Christmas

A California Christmas has all of the elements needed for a classic, cheesy holiday film: city boy, small-town girl, hate turning to love, and the real meaning of Christmas. If you're a fan of Hallmark films, you'll surely love this one, but it does have a bit of a "been there, done that" feel. As Taylor Swift says, "I think I've seen this film before."
