‘Deliver by Christmas’: The Kind of Old-Fashioned Romance We Love

October 25, 2020 8 Comments

Hallmark is ready to ring in the Christmas season with a plethora of new 2020 Christmas originals. One of these is Deliver By Christmas.

Deliver by Christmas (2020) Hallmark Movies and Mysteries Review

This Christmas, Josh (Eion Bailey) has a to-do list a mile long, but it’s all festive things he plans to do with his son, Charlie. Since his wife died, Josh determines to make Charlie and their new life together priority; which is why he moves back home where he has his brother, sister-in-law and mother close by. This year, he also end up helping with the Christmas festival. By happenstance, he also meets Molly (Alvina August), a woman with important family ties.

Molly is a busy small business owner who doesn’t have time for dating, but her random encounters with Charlie and his dad makes her re-think her position. Though she is interested, she cannot help but feel a tug towards the voice that is her unexpected late-night conversations she shares with a client.

Part of their Miracles of Christmas campaign, this isn’t really a mystery film; but as it airs on Hallmark Movies and Mysteries, it has more of a heart-tugging story that may draw a tear. Throughout the year, this sister network (of Hallmark Channel) does air mysteries, but their Christmas offerings tend to be more heart-tugging (serious) versus mysterious. This is true of Deliver By Christmas.

The usual misassumptions happen in this (not once, but twice!), but this script is also really sweet. The old-fashioned charm of any story is something I will never tire of, and this is one that has that concept, plus does it really well. There’s lots of charming and cute moments intertwined with the story, and it makes us root for these characters to see a happy end.

We also get the chance to see Eion Bailey again (pretty sure his last Hallmark was Switched for Christmas); and Alvina August (CW’s Nancy Drew) is fantastic as Molly. It’s impossible for me to say much else about this film because really, I did quite enjoy it, and since that’s the purpose of a Christmas film, there’s really nothing left to say.
