It's Christmas time around the house. Christmas brings many changes to the home landscape, but none more confusing to me than the arrival of the bad Christmas movies on the Hallmark and Lifefime channels. I don't personally care for them, but I do find myself getting wrapped into them each night at about 9:00 PM. Last night's award winner, The Christmas Proposal, featured two Christmas movie mainstays in Tom Arnold, and Nicole Eggert - who seems to have been spending a little too much time in front of the feed bowl since her Baywatch days (if you know what I mean). The film (and I use that term loosely) also featured a Patrick Dempsey lookalike, as I do not imagine that the producers had money in the budget for the real McDreamy, after spending all of that money on talent like Tom Arnold. Anyway, the story was typical for a Christmas movie - folks return to the small town home at Christmas, realize they miss it, everybody falls in love and Christmas arrives and solves whatever lingering problem might remain. Tier 2 McDreamy and the pudgy ex-tv lifeguard rekindle their forgotten romance and get engaged in front of the whole town. Of course. Not sure of the point of Tom Arnold in this one. He is Tier 2 McDreamy's boss and spends lots of time shouting at him over the phone from a golf course - where he barks out important boss-like sayings such as "Have that report on my desk in the morning!" or "If you don't come through, you're finished at this company!" Good stuff from Tom Arnold here. He really has blossomed as a performer since splitting from Roseanne.
We'll see what's on tonight.
