48 Christmas Wishes Movie (Screencaps)

Forget the horrible, over the top acting. This movie is cringe-worthy. Typically, I can digest bad acting in exchange of comic relief, a concept.. Something!

There was none of that. Not even the typical emotion evoked from the sort of single mother raising two children alone. Plot? What plot? Mindy, a moody elf girl accidentally destroys a bag of wishes up at the North Pole and Cam and her are force to retrieve it in order to ‘save’ Christmas. Paired with a walkie-talkie and a very cheery human companion, Blake, we are forced to endure cringe, over-played clichés and really…and I mean really …bad acting.

There are almost no conflicts presented in the movie and the scenes are very stiff and painful to watch. This might be an okay movie for a much audience with no notion of what bad acting is but in my opinion, there are older and newer titles that do a much better job. Again… not all movies carry that fake, cheery Christmas spirit but the concept of the movie should in the very least be able to salvage bad acting.
