Movie Review: The Christmas Trap
Posted On May 14, 2020
Kara and Jessie are two teenage girls from very different worlds, but with a little Christmas magic, they find they have much more in common than they imagined.
This dad does not look like he’s old enough to be her dad
Is she a teen or what?
Wow, dead parents within a minute
OK, this girl is clearly a teen
What is with mystery grandparents – I mean, I know it’s the hook, but still
Do military personnel really get to board a plane first?
Aww, what a sweetie
Aha, she got bumped up to first class, and that’s how they meet
Who leaves their coat on in a plane
She’s too fancy to say “dude”
How weird that they are twinsies
I hope they stay friends after this
I guess it’s handy they have all the same interests, makes it easier to swap
Oh shit, they both have dead mothers what is this
This is also the weirdest idea
Wow rich girl’s family is legit rich
Not rich girl’s family is definitely not rich
I love Judy already
“Look just like your daddy” lol
She was literally just called Jessie by that lady a minute ago, dumbass
“I don’t know when I last saw you cry” – well she’s gonna be a miserable bag
Gosh, this is such a terrible idea
Grandfather Bob lol
“Being a yankee” good lord
What, her dad!? That’s so weird
That’s a terrible idea oh my god
That’s kind of cute about her dad but like, where has he been this whole time
And why did the grandparents only just decide to get in touch
AND HOW IS SHE SUCH A GOOD DRIVER WITH NO LESSONS WHAT THE FUCK!?
That horse is so big o_O
He’s giving her a damn horse what
“Just like your daddy” lulz again
Every time someone shows some affection I’m reminded how BAD OF AN IDEA THIS IS
Lol at the maid’s response to the make up
Horses be damned, Jessie’s family seems the best
Those are pretty cute kids
I take it back, Junior’s a shit
Gosh, a military mum, that’s different
“Barrel racer eh?” I wonder if their parents knew each other
He didn’t put the bacon with the beans
What on earth is this, why do they have an 18 seat dining table!
Haha, beauty queens and rodeo queens
How can you be a matriarch of a family that doesn’t fucking exist, and not call your granddaughter or bloody son in like 20 years
YES THAT’S WHAT WE WANT TO KNOW
So…something happened and now they want to make it up
I bet her dad married down in status
This maid is a hero
Cara is so dumb omg
“Smelly boys and sloppy men” awww, granma <3
Oh man, Cara’s grandmother is awful
Oh boy, are they gonna end up competing in a beauty pageant!?!?
This is not how I thought this would go
That’s terrible and hilarious
Cara getting down to the nitty gritty quick like
Oh, okay, so Jessie’s mum pushed him away so he never knew about her, that’s forgivable
Oh boy, and they’re going to sing the same song
Can’t even hear her over the guitar, probably because she can’t actually sing
Things I would love: they both choose Jessie’s family
OOOOH What’s the drama
I love Grandad Bob
Gosh she’s a bitch
And she’s the reason they’re not in contact with their son
“The biggest mistake with that girl”, which girl? Jessie’s mum
A cute boy, hurrah!
“Good stock” like a horse?
Who are these people? Is that Cara’s dad? I wasn’t paying attention for the thirty seconds he was on screen
But who is the woman?
Oh no! This is how it’s all gonna be revealed!
His girlfriend I suppose, a secret-from-cara girlfriend
Cara sounds more southern than Jessie despite being more proper
New plan, Granddad Bob needs to break up with Elsa, marry Jessie’s Grandma and both Jessie and Cara will be step-cousins
OH I wonder if she’s the “mistake girl”
And so Jessie *could* have been his granddaughter if he’d married Jessie’s actual grandmother
I love Bob so much
Oh heck, that cake looks so good
Well, I wonder what’s gonna happen now…
Oh, OK, he’s gonna wait a bit
I bet he’s gonna be like “wait, that’s not my daughter” when Jessie gets announced as Cara at the pageant
Judy Wilkins is Jessie’s grandma, and so probably is “mistake girl”
I love Judy too
OH no, don’t muddy your dress girl
Cara, you’re the best
Oh no, she’s gonna ruin the dress
Uggggggh at Elsa, big time ugh
At least hike it up Cara omfg
I mean, not that Judy’s gonna be mad, but she might be sad
Oh no, it’s totally ruined 🙁
Haha, they’re gonna get Jessie’s old dress from the thrift shop
Fess up Cara, tell them you got a credit card
Or that, good second option
Good on ya Jessie
I love it Cara, family buskin’ yes!
Judy’s savage, I love it
OH man, is Elsa gonna sabotage
She’s not, but she’s bribe/blackmail *oof*
Cara and Judy, it’s gonna break her heart
Oh shit, did she steal the phone!?
Wait, the pageant is today!?
This is gonna go tits up :/
That is the worst smile in the world 😀
What’s gonna happen in the next 40 minutes
OK, not a secret girlfriend??
A fiancée, OK, Kara probably does know – I only just noticed that it was spelled with a K
Good for Bob!
I was right, he married down in status!
These close ups make it look like they’re not talking to each other
Stands to reason the Wilkins family is chill
OH I LOVE IT
Wilkins family rolling up in their pickup to the Gentries
I feel bad for not knowing the maid’s name but she’s a legend
Has she told Elsa yet? ‘Cos Bob doesn’t seem to be minding but Elsa isn’t there
June! She’s a love
Check Bob out, spending his money the right way
Seriously, where is Elsa though?
HAHAHAHA that’s brilliant
I reckon Bob *is* gonna leave Elsa for Judy
Uh oh, she’s a coming
“Sick joke” I mean, I guess
HECK YES KARA
Secret fiancé lol
Come on Jessie, don’t ruin things
Oh bless him
You can’t hold it against him for not knowing you existed
Feisty gal, love her
So they’re actual cousins!?!
I LOVE THIS, kick her out
Yes June, I’m with ya
Oof, that look Kara
Fuck me that’s a lot of presents
OH YEAH, ROY’S WIFE IS HOME THIS IS THE BEST
Why is she talkking to him like he’s a simpleton?
Not sure what that thing about giving a present to June was – not that she doesn’t deserve something but like… is it that he got his conscience back after seeing Judy??
Oh man, they’re all singing, this is so lame and so perfect
I want a Southern Christmas
Oh no, the song went bad, what was that little a cappella rap bit!?
So this isn’t a romance so the normal scheme doesn’t apply but this was a damn fun movie!
