Ashley's Christmas Dash

Andrew W. Walker and Meghan Ory in Debbie Macomber's Dashing Through the Snow (2015)

Christmas time and crafter Ashley Harrison (Meghan Ory) is due to fly home to Seattle to see her mum, except when she goes to the airport something strange has happened with her ticket and she can't book in. Desperate to get home she goes to rent a car but finds herself beaten to the last car by the handsome Dash Sutherland (Andrew Walker) who is off to Seattle for a job interview. Offering to share the car the two of them find themselves on quite a ride which amongst other things include a run in with thieves, a stop off in the town of Mistletoe and a case of mistaken identity as some agents are tailing Ashley. But of course spending so long together in a car leads to Ashley and Dash becoming close.

There is a scene in "Debbie Macomber's Dashing Through the Snow" where Dash offers Ashley a ride and she says something along the lines of "I've seen the movie, I know how this goes, woman meets handsome stranger they share a car journey and ....". Well I've seen that movie too, many a time and whilst this Christmas roadtrip movie has some twists on the usual Christmas roadtrip tale it is still that familiar story of two strangers sharing a car and falling for each other through various complications. It is no spoiler to say that because this is such an often used idea that even before you sit down to watch "Debbie Macomber's Dashing Through the Snow" you can guess what the outcome is going to be because it is inevitable.

But there are the variations and those include the various problems that Ashley and Dash suffer on their journey which are not as typical as you normally get. And then there is the mistaken identity element as we have agents mistaking Ashley for a dangerous person and we have them tailing her. It is purely there for comedy with typical bumbling agents but it is kind of amusing.

What this all boils down to is that "Debbie Macomber's Dashing Through the Snow" is not one of those special Christmas movies which make you feel like Christmas has arrived. But it is one of those fun Christmas movies which are a good afternoon time filler when the Christmas season arrives.
