The film is slowly climbing in the trending of Netflix, however, it has a rating of 5.6 on Imdb. Along with Lindsay, this film stars Chord Overstreet and Jack Wagner. As a reminder, Lohan is best known for the leading roles in the hit remakes of the films "The Parent Trap" and "Freaky Friday", as well as for the teenage comedy "Mean Girls" from 2004.
How is this Christmas movie different from others ?
"I liked the character and her arc. I haven’t really gotten to play a character like Sierra, who is aloof and running around like a chicken with its head cut off.
I’ve never had the opportunity to play an heiress, so that was really exciting for me. I like to play a character where you can see the softer side of her. To come back after not doing movies for so long—almost a decade—I wanted to find something [where] people can relate to both sides of her character.
And it’s really heartwarming. I love a light love story: It’s not too heavy or deep. It made me really happy when I read it, and it made me laugh out loud—and that was important." she said to The Guardian.
Her name was previously followed by numerous scandals, and the public was informed about her fierce parties with Paris Hilton, bad relationship with her mother, stormy love relationships and the like. The stumbling actress filled the headlines every day with news about thefts, fines that the police regularly issued her for speeding, and then her sudden decision to convert to Islam.
