The second movie in the series this time Mike is offered a chance to be on a celebrity reality house decorating show, but then the producers see how he and his brother Brandon are together and decide they should compete for the prize.

This honestly disappointed me, the first movie was incredible and I had such high hopes that this one would be as good, but it just wasn’t. It didn’t have as much of the heart in it, which is sad.

Brandon got completely swept up in it all and was so major in his competing he wasn’t focused and was stressed out. He wasn’t listening to his husband who was telling him it doesn’t matter. He wanted to beat his brother that much he stopped at nothing to keep competing against him. It was shocking just how competitive he was over it all.

I did like that eventually they all worked together and it was really sweet again and the family unit was back to how it was before. I hated that Noah’s dad Zane showed, I wasn’t a fan of that guy at all. He just kept getting in the way, showing up whenever, interrupting Mike and Andie. It was a weird storyline and it felt like because he was there Noah wasn’t the same anymore either.

I did like this movie but it just really wasn’t as good as the first one and it wasn’t as heart felt and beautiful, it was fun and Christmassy either, though yes still Christmassy in looks but it didn’t feel like it. The ending was so beautiful and stunning, filled with love and heart again though, they got it so beautiful, so at least they knew the perfect way to end it.
