A Cinderella Story: Christmas Wish Blu-ray Review

“A Cinderella Story: Christmas Wish” will have its fans.

“Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this blog post. The opinions I share are my own.”

“A Cinderella Story: Christmas Wish is the fifth film in the ongoing franchise. In this outing, an aspiring singer/songwriter (Kat) is stuck living with her wicked stepmother and her 2 bratty daughters. She lost her parents, does her stepmothers bidding, and works as an Elf at Santa Land. While on the job, she meets a guy named Nick who is the new Santa. Nick also happens to be the son of the very wealthy Terrence Wintergarden. To make a long story short, Kat and Nick fall for one another, but a series of unfortunate circumstances (including some meddling by her stepmother) get in their way.

It’s not even Halloween yet and Christmas titles are already starting to release. The latest (“A Cinderella Story: Christmas Wish”) is a holiday themed spin on the classic Cinderella tale. It’s a cheaply made movie with a few autotuned pop song/musical numbers that is meant to appeal to fans of Christmas romance stories as well as fans of this franchise. If those things appeal to you, this is the movie for you. If you’re not in that target demo, it’s unlikely this will be your cup of tea. It’s all very predictable, safe, schmaltzy holiday fare where dreams come true and people find love. You’ve seen this story countless times before.

On the plus side, stars Laura Marano (best known as playing Ally on “Austin and Ally”) and Gregg Sulkin (currently on Marvel’s “The Runaways”) are charming in the lead roles. Their chemistry is believable and they do a fine job carrying this sequel.
