"Falling for Christmas" is a much better title than "A Snow Capped Christmas" because the story is about a Figure Skater. The actors were all very enjoyable- well done- enjoyed watching it. This is the first time I've seen the lead actress (who is 31 playing a 20 yr old- but it worked well). The lead actor was in "Finding Father Christmas" and he is very likable in both roles. The two were great together especially with the 8 year old daughter in the mix. In the supporting cast we have Blair from Facts of Life as the mom and Lochlyn Munro who played a part in Christmas Mail- 2010 (both these added to the film). I also thought the receptionist at the clinic was a nice touch.
I recommend watching it (especially for those familiar with women's figure skating), but it failed the doze test. I dozed a few times past the half point watching on a commercial free DVD. Little effort was put into making the figure skating scenes special. The plot: previous years Silver medalist from the National Women's Figure skating contest meets former NHL MVP (for 3 years) Hockey Star. I think that should have been toned down a bit to maybe a regional figure skating championship and a former pro hockey player.
