Wealthy workaholic Michael Madsen (as Joseph "Joe" Johnson) doesn't show up for a dinner party planned by attractive wife Alexandra Paul (as Christine). This proves to be the last straw in their rocky marriage and she secretly begins planning a divorce. Still, the couple embarks on a Christmas vacation in the mountains, with young adult daughters Elyse Levesque (as Teresa) and Melanie Papalia (as Amanda). The former's boyfriend Brendan Penny (as Matt) goes along... This TV Movie is too predictable. The parents get in a plane and the titular "Christmas Crash" occurs. Luckily, she has some survival skills learned as a Girl Scout. While we wonder if they will make it out alive, forces maneuver to take control of Mr. Madsen's company. The script repeatedly mentions severe weather conditions, but this looks like a pleasant walk in the park. Worst of all, we have scant interest in whether these characters stay married, divorce or even live. *** Christmas Crash (11/10/08) Terry Ingram ~ Alexandra Paul, Michael Madsen, Brendan Penny, Winston Rekert
