WARNING, SPOILERS : the following document contains the full synopsis of Hallmark Channel's original Christmas movie 'Help for the Holidays'
, starring Summer Glau and Eva LaRue.
The plot summary available to us till now was basically a non-spoiler summarized description of the main plot but this document contains the precise narrative of the movie, including the twists and turns of the plot and also the ending.
If you don't like to be spoiled, you may want to read the few trivias and fun facts listed below, but probably not the PDF file containing the full synopsis.
Christmas movies are not so much about the ending (the happy-ending outcome is predictable before the first commercial), but rather about the journey, they make you long for childhood fantasy and enchantment. Another appeal of Christmas movies is the family factor: grown-ups and kids can gather around the television and enjoy some wholesome entertainment together
'Help for the Holidays' is not afraid of a happy ending or having people feeling good, it is big on magic, romance and Christmas spirit (read the exclusive interview
with the writer).
And now a few trivias to whet your appetites:
- The name of the Christmas shop owned by the VanCamp family in 'Help for the Holidays' is...Holly Daze (pun intented).
- Summer Glau revealed previously in a phone interview that her character Christine "pulls candy canes out from behind people's ears all the time"...But this is not the only magical thing that she brought from the North Pole; Santa put in her bag a few magical accessories to help her adapt to a new world.
- While The Hallmark Channel seems to highlight almost exclusively the Christmas wake-up call plot in his summaries and promo trailer, the romance between Christine and uncle Dave (John Brotherton) occupies an important place in 'Help for the Holidays'.
- In the movie, Christine goes to a dance rehearsal with Ally (the little girl)...Any resemblance to any person or situation real is purely coincidental.
- Christine is not the only one from Santa's village who will come to Los Angeles...Santa plays an unexpected role and saves the day.
