Diane and Norm reunite...sort of
7 January 2017 | by studioATSee all my reviews

The main draw of this TV movie is really the fact that 'Cheers' stars Shelley Long and George Wendt reunite in it.

But actually this is worth watching without that detail, because a decent story is being told. Yes, it's a little predictable, and it's certainly more than a little cheesy, but it's well meaning, and hey- it's a Christmas film.

I enjoyed this far more than I thought I would, and that's because of the performances that were given by the actors, who try their best to rise above the sentiment that can sometimes clog films like this.

If you're in need of a 'Cheers' reunion, this could be the place to go.
