From a lot of comments I have read on the movie, many of the subtle nuances of the movie go over the head of some viewers. Movies like this are the reasons that the divorce rate is over 50%, I would rather watch Trolls on repeat. No part of this movie makes sense and people in a relationship like these two people need clinical help. Over the years they are sometimes hostile to one another and other times good friends. The only thing that was cheesy and no like real life was the ending, but the actors' chemistry made up for that.
When I started watching this movie, I saw Dustin Milligan and my immediate response was, 'Hello, Ted! Trevor as Bodhi Kai Bown. Initially, it seems to drag on a bit, but after awhile ya' get caught up in the length of time taken between the two main players before they commit to one another.

Cast Cast overview, first billed only:. Thus, Sam and Kat only see each other at most once a year during the holidays, however being there in spirit for the other year 'round without really knowing what is truly going on in the other's life. It is like one of those crazy dreams you have after eating pizza and garlic knots when nothing makes sense. The two lead characters go by the names Sam and Kat.
This movie suffers from bad writing, lack of chemistry, and a weak leading actor. Thirty-two year olds Sam Reed and Kat Patton have known each other most of their lives, having grown up in the same small Illinois town. The two beloved female lead actresses' performances are fine but their screen time for the first part of the movie is limited so even good actresses can't save this mess of a script. My wife and I understood everything in it, and the undercurrent messages. There is no character development, no comprehensive plot, and no good relationships. It's just well cast, acted and directed, well done.
This Miss Havisham reference is a little heavy-handed as a plot device, but even with that, it's a well-written and well-acted romcom, swear-free! On Christmas Eve, they are there as the other goes through romance and heartache with others. Watching this movie for the 2nd time this evening--watched it the first time a few days ago. This dude yells at the girl in the movie, doesn't talk to her for 5 years and then comes back and asks her to marry him. People who love Christmas romance movies will accept a little bit of cheese and bad acting to a point in Christmas movies but this movie is beyond that - it's just plain unwatchable.

After around five years of not returning home after a particularly bad Christmas Eve party Sam realizes he is in love with Kat. I like the 'going home to a small hometown and hanging out with a childhood friend' plot, and the script is very real, these people talk the way real people talk. He returns to town most Christmases for the Christmas Eve dinner, while Kat has remained in town, she eventually getting a job in the family business. Milo as Luc Gauther Charbonnier.
Its like watching a toxic relationship unfold over the course of 30 years. I have been watching 'Schitt's Creek,' the clever Eugene Levy comedy. Very christmasy, every scene takes place at a Christmas party, there's no lack of lights and reds and greens. I like how you dont know everything about the characters right away, you find out as the story moves along. However, Now Sam is coming home for the first time in years and surprise things will happen.
Normally I love Hallmark, and Christmas movies but this one was so strange. I won't comment on any of the terrible story line or horrible acting but for one part. Love at the Christmas Table is a holiday romantic comedy that is a nice film to watch on a night leading up to the holidays by a roaring fire or a burning Christmas scent candle, eggnog or hot chocolate in hand. Playing games, drinking nog, dancing or at least listening to music, all the things that are familiar around the holiday - everything important happens in the context of 'home for Christmas. This crowd of friends and family is very convincing.
Unfortunately, they got into an argument when he came back for the Christmas which makes relationship seem to be broken. It's a little bit different than all the other oft-recycled, boy meets girl, finds love at Christmas time, Hallmark and Lifetime movies.

Clint as William Franc Bryant. Love at the Christmas Table shows fourteen different Christmases Sam and Kat spend together at the Christmas table their dads built. .
The film is about two people of the same age who have attended a Christmas Eve party every year together since they were kids. There might be a swear jar lurking in the background of the writer's room to account for that. If you like terrible movies with no plot, then this is the movie for you. So, of course, I had to watch all of this movie. In what delusional hallmark fantasy world do the people that made this movie live in? I like both main characters plus the supporting cast.
