Will You Merry Me?

Could have been titled: Will You Marry Me? or better yet Will You Marry My Family?

I just loved this movie, but I must premise it with the fact that I am a really big "sucker" for most of the holiday movies.

"Will You Merry Me?" premiered on Saturday, December 13, at 9PM (ET), featuring Wendie Malick ("Just Shoot Me") and Cynthia Stevenson ("Men in Trees") .

Rebecca and Hank/Henry are from very different backgrounds. Hank is mid-Western, Christian and corn-fed. Rebecca's a sophisticated Jewish city girl. As Christmas approaches, Hank pops the question. Rebecca says yes, and the two couldn't be happier. But the road to happiness will have some potholes. First they must meet each other's families. And, it's time to meet the parents during two important religious holidays, Christmas and Hanukkah. Not only must this couple go through the natural anxiety-filled process of meeting the in-laws, but they also go through the stress of immersing each other into two very different families, with very different holiday traditions.

Up to their eyeballs in conflicting family holiday traditions. This movie will be on again on USA network on Thursday, December 25th. at 7 PM. What a fun family movie, in the spirit of "Meet the Flockers", to watch on Christmas day evening, or make certain to set your recorders and Tivos if you can not watch it then.
