  2. This makes me WAY TOO EXCITED!!! I love a cheesy holiday film. :)

    It's ironic that Brooke Shields is cast in the film. I was just talking to a man who claims that he put sunscreen on her while she was staying on Long Island in her Sag Harbor home. I was left unimpressed because I had no clue who she was. The man was left annoyed at my indifference. Oh well!

    1. Just another proof how annoying ya millennials are :)) How da hell you don't know who Brooke is? It is not like she's Hedy Lamar from the 30s or something, geezus. She was one of 80s biggest stars and kept starring in many shows in recent decades and years. I loved her in LIPSTICK JUNGLE series. She even starred in Friends as the crazed fan of Joey's Drake Remore character. Admittedly she is much more famous than Cary Elwes for example. But then again, a few weeks ago when Kygo released What's Love Got To Do It With It remix, I saw many millennials not knowing who Tina Turner is over at You Tube. That isn't even funny, that is just disgustingly disrespectful and such people need to be slapped multiple times on a daily basis.

  3. Is this a new production, Dezmond ?. I am quite surprised by the appearance of the Brooke Shield which looks youthful.

    The film she starred in and made her name known in my country was the film Blue Lagoon.

    1. Yes, it is shooting right now, she looks very nice and not just for her age. And yes, Blue Lagoon was a worldwide hit when we were kids.

  4. I am always down for holiday film. I just watched Christmas in Africa (I think that was what it was called with Rob Low and I forgot her name, but the chick from Sex and the City). I'm getting my Christmas on early this year because 2020 sucks, so why not? All of these will be added to my must see list.

    1. We really need Christmas this year, but having in mind our experience with 2020 so far, I bet corona will hit us even stronger around holidays for some ominous reasons.

  5. I do know who Tina Turner is, although I couldn't tell you any of her music. I am a very bad representation of my generation with this though. I've probably read more books than movies I've seen or different music that I've listened to. Even when driving, I'll listen to an audio book over music. Yesterday I folded laundry for an hour and a half while listening to an audio book. I didn't even look for the TV at all.

    1. See, that right there, how can you say you don't know any of Tina's music when she has like five biggest pop hits of all times? The Best, Private Dancer, We Don't Need Another Hero, What's Love Got To Do With It, Goldeneye, Proud Mary, River Deep Mountain High.... to name just a few. She is the ultimate queen of pop.

    2. I do know What’s Love Got to do With It! Ok, I rescind my original statement. :)

    3. Right, like Imma gonna believe you have never heard of Proud Mary, the biggest soul hit if there ever was one, or Simply the Best, one of pop's top ten most popular songs evah. Or I Don't Wanna Lose You? Steamy Windows? I Can't Stand the Rain? Or Cose de la Vitta with Eros Ramazzotti? The only pop singer that has more classic pop hits than Tina is Celine.

    1. Yes, they are deliberating on putting us under state of emergency again here, because Pussylips fired all the best doctors who were saving people's lives and now he can order other doctors to replace them only under state of emergency, but I think we will riot if he does that. He just placed some unbelievably stupid mancunt as the ambassador in USA.

  7. I have to hear the songs to see if I know them. My husband is the one that's into music. I used to listen to a few local bands in high school. Other then that, I was playing Broadway tunes for my recitals and practicing classical music for NYSSMA. As you can probably tell, I was a little bit of a dork. :) If it makes you feel better, I don't really know any modern day music either. Celine Dion's Power of Love was my wedding song!!! When I first met my husband, a coworker of mine found the hubby in his car singing the song loudly and tried to dissuade me from dating him again. Ever since, he likes to serenade me with that song.

    1. Why would that be a reason from dissuading you to date him? I could understand if it was something from Cardi B or Jay Z.
