Streaming: Operation Christmas Drop

Merry Christmas! If you haven’t yet caught the bug then those two words will irritate you. Otherwise, the rest of us have had Christmas on our brains since late October. That is why Operation Christmas Drop comes at just the right time.

In the movie, Erica (Graham) is a congressional aide with a demanding boss. Erica is sent to an army base by the beach. There, she meets Capt Andrew (Ludwig), who has a laid back approach to everything, including the fact that she might have been sent there to close down one of the island’s most long standing traditions. That tradition is Operation Christmas Drop, where the island airdrops Christmas packages for needy families during the festive season. But because of budget cuts, this is one of the things that could end – even in the movies bali mu struggle.  Erica and Capt Andrew do not get along at first – of course. But as the movie progresses, Erica starts to warm up to island life and Andrew – as expected.

The movie is proper holiday mushiness even with the seriousness of what is happening. Fun fact: Operation Christmas Drop is a real humanitarian operation that has been happening since 1952, benefitting Guam, where the movie was shot. The shock of seeing Ludwig out of his usual Vikings look wears off when you realise that he is actually good eye candy. The chemistry between him and Kat is so-so but we don’t watch Christmas movies for that. All we want is a story that ends well, and that the entire family can watch. You’ll get that here.
