Exes reunite in new Christmas movie on Great American Family
Great American Family will premiere the new Christmas movie Aisle Be Home For Christmas this weekend. The romantic comedy, which stars Jennifer Freeman, Garrett Watson, Jessica Ruth Bell, and Erica Duke, tells the story of two exes who get trapped by winter storms and must spend Christmas together in a big box retail store.
“This weekend grab a cup of hot chocolate and get cozy on your couch and check out my new Christmas movie,” wrote Jen Freeman on her Instagram page, @msjenfreeman.
New Christmas movie
In Aisle Be Home For Christmas, Freeman plays a woman who gets stranded with a group of people in a big box store when a winter storm hits. The strangers try to make the best of a bad situation, cooking up some food and setting a table for the holiday meal. But the situation is a little awkward as two members of the group — Michelle (played by Freeman) and Drew (played by Garrett Watson) — used to be a couple.
In a preview of the movie, Drew tells Michelle, “Something is giving us a second chance.”
