‘COYOTE CREEK CHRISTMAS’: ALL THE TRADITIONS WIN IN THIS ROMANCE

November 13, 2021 1 Comment

Full of normal messages and the familiar faces of a favorite leading man and newer but favorite leading lady, Coyote Creek Christmas is pretty much the common of a Hallmark film.

Coyote Creek Christmas (2021) Hallmark TV Film Review

Denver is where Paige Parker (Janel Parrish) calls home, working as an event planner. But her heart is always in Coyote Creek, the place where her parents run an inn. This year, Paige takes charge of the Christmas festivities which her parents have fallen behind on. What she doesn’t know is her parents have a secret…

Unexpectedly arriving at the inn is Dylan Bailey (Ryan Paevey). With his brother, Dylan owns a company that acquires inns, which is something they’ve been working with the Parker’s on for a while now. Before he and his son, Noah can take their Christmas trip, Dylan must first assess the inn. This he must do all while trying to respect the Parker’s ask that he keep his reason for being there private.

The season of Christmas movies always has these stories about traditions and how they inform our future. I have some thoughts on this, likely unpopular ones, but as this isn’t what we’re here for, I’ll not go off on that. However, that complaint out of the way, this is another network norm that most people will enjoy.

It’s been fun to see Janel in some of these films, especially her title last year which I think is one of the best Hallmark films. This one isn’t a favorite, but it’s good. Plus, I’d be lying if I didn’t say I like Ryan Paevey. Azriel Dalman is also great as Noah, and you’ll see Cameron Bancroft playing Paige’s father, too. Fun movie trivia fact says this films in the same location as Right in Front of Me, which is a rom-com Parrish filmed with Hallmark earlier this year.

Coyote Creek Christmas isn’t likely to be a “best of the bunch” title, but it has charms. I don’t appreciate Paige’s reaction to the “secret,” but I do expect it. What I do appreciate is that the “drama” of these scenes is taken down ten notches from where it once was. Oh, and there’s some really pretty visionary scenes, too – complete with oodles of lights strung through the back yard!

Content: there is a same-sex crush and eventual relationship start (the pair dance around each other and share looks, etc). There’s comments about a mother leaving; and there’s some insults directed at parents.
