Operation Christmas Drop – Cherry at the Movies Review
Netflix is kicking off Pumpkin Spice season with a sweet movie that will make a grinch heart grow 5X bigger
Operation: Christmas Drop stars Kat Graham, Alexander Lundwig, and Guam that have now been added to my bucket trip list (gorgeous island). It’s a delightful pumpkin latte with whipped topping while snuggling in a cozy sweater type of holiday movie!
Erica Miller (Kat Graham) is an ambition aide to Congresswoman Bradford (Virginia Madsen) that’s looking to cut spending by getting rid of a base anywhere but in her home district <brr> and decides that the base in Guam is full wasting money with the ‘Santa Drop’. She sends Kat to report back with good reasons while dangling a big promotion. Erica arrives looking for any excuse but is greeted by Captain Andrew Jantz (Alexander Ludwig) looking like a snack shirtless on the beach! A few sparks fly as Andrew sings the praises of base and the work they do. The question is does he sway Erica to change her mind about the report??
You’ll have to watch this family friendly movie to find out what happens but I’ll give a hint … it’s a Netflix Christmas movie!
I liked this sweet bon bon of a movie that helped to cleanse my mind with what’s going on in the world. I can’t resist a beautiful beach, gorgeous people, a lovely Christmas song by Colbie Caillat about Santa scuba diving, and my favorite witch Bonnie Bennett from TVD finally getting some respect and happiness. I was surprised as I watched the very end when a photo popped up and realized this is a real thing! It’s an annual Christmas tradition that started in 1952 where the U.S. Air Force airlifts crates of gifts and essential supplies to communities across Micronesia from U.S. bases in Guam and Japan.
Operation Christmas Drop was directed by Martin Wood, written by Gregg Rossen and Brian Sawyer a perfect start to the Netflix holiday movie season.
