The new Christmas Rom Com of Netflix: Reviews and Responses
However, the Christmas tradition on Netflix when analyzed closer, this particular movie is no different. As far as the Christmas movies on Netflix are concerned, it stands in close alliance with Hallmark Productions and cliched plotline. Some have Christmas princes, some have Kurt Russell, but almost all of Netflix’s yuletide offerings blend seamlessly into a cheer-by-numbers mass and holy romance beneath the mistletoe. When it comes to “Operation Christmas Drop,” it serves as a romantic comedy that faintly distinguishes itself from its snow-sprayed genre which it replaces with enticingly balmy South Pacific scenery. The mutual amiability and romantic chemistry between Erica and Captain Andrew Jantz st in the Pacific scenery seem to be the only variance as far as the Netflix yuletide traditions are concerned.
Despite these cliches, the movie has managed itself to capture the rom com aura and Christmastide at its best!
