Let It Snow (2019)

Hey, guys!
Can you believe it’s already December? I swear 2019 had only just started last week!
Anyways, you know what December means, right? It’s time for Christmas movies! How else would you get into that holiday spirit? So, this month, I’ll be showering you in reviews of X-Mas/holiday movies both old and new.
Let’s begin with one of Netflix’s latest releases in that department: Let It Snow!

The Plot:

This romantic Christmas Comedy is an adaptation of the book of the same name by Maureen Johnson, John Green, and Lauren Myracle. It tells a few different tales, so here we go: there are the old friends Tobin and Duke who might or might not have a thing for each other, there’s Julie who runs into a famous singer on the train and hangs out with him for the day, and finally there’s a wafflehouse with a lot of stuff going on…

The Rating:

I’ll be upfront, I had pretty low expectations for this one. Netflix dumped the trailer on me and it looked cheesy a f but in the name of sciences/reviews, I decided to give it a shot.

Well, it wasn’t that bad! Turns out, Let It Snow is actually a cute little flick that is pretty decent and enjoyable. I wouldn’t watch it a second time and it didn’t leave much of an impression, but it was nice while it lasted.

Don’t get me wrong, there are many scenes that really are cheesy af just like I had expected but what would any holiday movie be without those?
Of course, we also get some logic-defying scenes but let’s just roll with it, shall we?

Let It Snow gives us quite a few actors I want to see more of, especially Kiernan Shipka (aka Sabrina Spellman from Chilling Adventures). For some reason, Joan Cusack is also in this flick, playing a lady cover in aluminum foil. (What’s up with that?!)

However, the one thing I enjoyed most was the soundtrack. Although there are some inevitable Christmas songs thrown in the mix, we also get The Clash and The Rolling Stones. Maybe I am the last person on the planet who didn’t know this song, but The Whole of the Moon by The Waterboys is now on all of my playlists since hearing it on Let It Snow.

All in all Let It Snow is pretty much what you expect: a little cheesy but still kind of cute. With a great soundtrack and a promising cast, I ended up enjoying the film more than I had expected. Although I wouldn’t watch it a second time, Let it Snow was a good kick-off for this year’s season of holiday flicks.

Did you watch the film? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I like quite a few of the actors in this one, so I also checked it out. Nice but not leaving an impression is pretty much an on point description for me as well. I do adore Matthew Noszka, so seeing him in a cute flick was everything, but I think I might have enjoyed watching all the cast interviews even more.
