With a title that riffs the Steve Martin/John Candy comedy classic Planes, Trains and Automobiles.
This is anything but two people who have just met trying to get home for the holidays by any means.
Event planner Kayley (Kathryn Davis) and sports agent Brett (Olivier Renaud) are unable to fly home to New York for Christmas due to a snowstorm. The two team up to make their own way home.
Only to find themselves holed up in a small sleepy town of Redwood, Ohio. It just happens to be Brett's hometown that he left years ago.
The biggest problem with this movie is. It becomes inert once it ends up in Redwood. Brett tries to reconnect with his family and eventually Kayley falls for Brett.
Most viewers would had expected a mad dash to get somewhere and some scrapes. I'm not talking about driving up the wrong side of the road!

Predictable scripts, awful acting, irritating music throughout.
Both storyline and it's very title have been lazily copied and modified from the amazing, Planes Trains and Automobiles movie starring Steve Martin & the unforgettable John Candy.
Unfortunately, many writers of today's era are so badly talented with zero creativity. Directors appear satisfied just to meet targeted budgets & deliver on time without ensuring the casts can act.
In 2023, what is it with the Hallmark concepts of having endless stupid music & audio effects during the entirety of today's movies??
Rather than Paramount, Prime, Netflix etc. Producing endless nonsense, it's about time they learned from the success of talented box office hits from the past and understand how movie making in recent years have become boring, predictable and somewhat pathetic.
To conclude.... Planes, Trains and Christmas Trees is perhaps one of the worst Christmas movies of all times.
