Every year, Isabelle and high school sweetheart Mike rocked the annual Christmas Eve Pageant with a sweet Christmas duet. But after graduation, Isabelle left to study at Juilliard in New York, leaving Mike behind. Years later, when Isabelle returns to her hometown to write music for the annual Christmas Eve Pageant, she is shocked to learn that Mike is the one directing the show.
Is there some big-wig at Lifetime who got dumped by their high school sweetheart after graduating? Every other holiday movie on the network seems to have the same plot: small-town girl with Big City dreams leaves behind small-town boy, only to return years later and find out he’s not only still there, but still pines for her.
In Jingle Belle, the protagonist who abandoned her hometown after graduating is Isabelle Williams (Tatyana Ali, best known as Ashley Banks from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air), who works in the Big City for an advertising agency as a jingle writer. (Get it? Jingle Belle?).
When her sister (Keshia Knight Pulliam, a.k.a. Rudy Huxtable) begs her to return home to write a song for their hometown’s 50th anniversary holiday show, Belle’s boss orders her to go, thinking the small town visit will inspire her to write a new jingle for her biggest client.
But, oh no! When she arrives back home, guess who she finds out is directing the holiday show? The boy she left behind! I think you can probably predict the entire movie at this point. Belle and ex-boyfriend Christian (Cornelius Smith Jr. from Scandal) pen the song and it’s a huge hit. In fact, it’s so good, her boss wants to steal it for the ad agency’s new jingle!
