12 Pups of Christmas (2019) debuted on ION. Yes, lots of puppies. But after 90 minutes into the movie, the main human character Erin still had an off-putting attitude. I chose to change the channel; felt like watching something else more upbeat. Maybe will catch the last 30 minutes some other time.
Christmas Crush (2019) also premiered on ION this weekend. The main character Addie has to repeatedly fend-off a suitor who is accidentally under her own magic wish to pursue her. However, Addie meant that wish for her true crush who she then goes after. Complications ensue.
Throughout the movie, Addie is busy organizing an important party for her work called something like "The Donner Charity Event." At one point in the planning phase for the event, a character refers to it as "The Donner Party." Another character immediately corrects the words back to The Donner Event. I appreciated that there was no explanation to the viewing audience about why calling it "The Donner Party" could be a poor choice of words. I savor it when a movie has a little nugget like that.
