And this is a Deck the Hallmark podcast synopsis!
"Never Been Chris'd" originally aired November 4th, 2023. And it went a little something like this...
The movie kicks off showing a bunch of pictures of these two girls growing up together. We then see them as adults on the front of magazines, crushing life. Naomi and Liz are bff's, tech gurus, and they're trying to pitch investors to help build their app, Best Pals. But it's not going great, but there's no time to dwell on rejection - it's Christmas!
They're off to spend Christmas with their moms and they have very different relationships - Naomi is a little too close to her mom and Liz fights a little too much with her mom. They get to their home town and immediately bump into the high school hunk - Chris Silver!
They talk about hanging out and stumble over their words. They "hi" to their moms and then immediately go to a bar and bump into Chris again!
Chris is like, "hey I'm with a bunch of high school friends, come hang out."
They're like, "whattttt us?"
Apparently, they weren't cool in high school so they're like, "we get to sit at the cool table!" It goes well and they get invited to a party the following night and they're both soooo nervous.
Liz and Chris hang out and talk about the Great Gatsby and the chemistry is HOTTTTT🔥. They play Never Have I Ever and someone says, "never have I ever had a high school crush on Chris Silver," and Naomi eats a cookie. So naturally he follows up on that and is like, "I wanna hang out with the both of you again" (wink wink).
They end up getting together just the three of them, decorating a gingerbread house at this weird, like, bakery diner. He ends up having very intimate coversations with each of them individually. THEN they go ice skating together. Naomi isn't a good skater so Chris and Liz skate together and Liz fantasizes kissing Chris on the rink. This leads to her actually falling on the ice and hurting her ankle. She downplays any feelings when Naomi asks about it. Chris then takes Naomi out for a skate. They talk about how Naomi had a crush on him and when he catches her falling, they end up kissing!!!!
Afterwards, Liz and Naomi are walking home and Liz gives Naomi her blessing. So Naomi and Chris go out on a date, drinking hot chocolate, talking about how he's a vegan. Except is he?! Cuz Liz catches him eating fish at the Hanukkah party!
Liz gets a call that an investor doesn't want to invest, they want to buy the company.
Naomi and Chris go on a romantic date, and he tells her he doesn’t want the relationship to end. They talk about long distance and is doesn't go great so I guess Naomi calls the whole thing off. Then she sees him eat a bite of her fish when he thinks she isn't watching.
The Best Pals get into a terrible fight. Naomi knows that Liz lied about getting into Stanford. Liz feels like Naomi has always been holding her back. They decide to sell their business and move on without one another.
It is the night of the Jingle Ball, and Chris talks to Liz. He admits to being a sometimes Pescetarian. He tells Liz that she and Naomi will work it out.
Chris and Naomi make up and decide to give the relationship a fair shot and figure it out. Liz and Naomi also make up. They want to be in each other’s lives and are soulmates. They are also officially in the popular group, but maybe that doesn’t matter.
And that my friends was "Never Been Chris'd!"
