As an entertainment writer with a horrible memory, I have to take notes during the movie, or I’ll forget everything I wanted to say. So yes, if I’m watching a movie for review purposes you can find me writing notes in the dark while laughing out loud (or rolling my eyes). These are those initial notes below. Hopefully you’ll have fun reading through these notes. A full review will be posted shortly, so stay tuned! (And please don’t count how many times I screamed “oh shit”. Lol)
Is Noelle Any Good? My Initial Reaction Notes
This is gonna be SO good!
Is that her shoes? Lol
Awww … when Santa is your dad!
OMGarland! Oh my garland needs to be a hashtag!
Yeah, the hat don’t fit bruh! Lol
It’s cold! 8 degrees but they only have a jacket and a shirt on? How fcking cold is it really if you ONLY need a shirt? Lol
Dang he don’t even LOOK like Santa! Lol

Yay! Music. Love it!
This soundtrack is gonna be dope if the songs are all like this!
They really ice skate everywhere!
Lawd this nigguh sick! LOL
Shit! She said put some respect on his NAME! He’s not cousin Nick he’s SANTA! Lol
Already getting the “woman knows everything, man knows nothing, but still gets job” vibes.
Know what would make this even MORE relatable? If she was black.
Well damn, everyone wants an iPad?
What year is this? Don’t all kids already have iPads? Lol
WHAT THE !!!
It’s hard training a man huh sis? Lol
Never have I EVER had hot chocolate with peppermint. Lol
Santa wants to get away! Sounds like mom life. Lol
She REALLY refers to him as Santa! It’s so weird, cause it’s her damn brother. Lol
“But I’m in the tech department and LOVING IT.” Poor thing! Lol
So they just gon make the dude who don’t even WANT the job and in a WHOLE different department Santa?
Great! Now it’s her fault he didn’t come back? Why is it ALWAYS our fault when our OLDER brother messes up?
That sound affect was weird!
“What’s between Maui and San Juan?” Me thinking: Florida? Actual: Phonix! Lawd! LOL
“Phoenix, that sounds horrible!” Lol RIGHT! (Maybe I should go visit first before I judge! Lol)
Side bar: *tries to use my Raising Dion powers to summon my bag because I’m starving and I left my bag up front* Didn’t work! Lol
Oh lord! Here goes the techie! Lol
Online sir? NO! That’s not how Christmas works Santa! Loll
“Well he looks nice and polite, so I know I haven’t dated him.” OH SHIT! LOL
Sis just invite him to Hawaii! Lol
Yo! They faces! Lol These reindeer mad AF! Lol They throwing bird seed at them tryna feed them. Fcking humans yo! Lol
Ohhhh this song lit! Lol What kinda music is this? Detroit? Jump? Bounce? (I’m a failure for not knowing this. Lol)

Sis paid her private investigator in CHOCOLATE GOLD COINS! Lol
Ehhhh … cute dude with ex wife drama! Lol NVM!

Awwww I feel bad for this kid.
I bet he just wants his family together, like duh, and maybe an iPad? Since EVERYONE wants one? LOL
Wow he just said he feels like a camp counselor? So you don’t feel like a dad? THATS YOUR KID!! TF!!
OMG! She ate sunblock! LOL
Why is he SO excited to see her? Didn’t he run away? Lol
Santa tryna deliver presents via Amazon Prime! LOL (How much did Amazon pay for that advertisement? Lol)
Yessss these renditions of these songs are great!
No one sees her craziness? Lol
She still thinks he’s the person that can fix everything and it’s sad.
It’s crazy how I can see all the signs that she’s the person for the job but can’t see that for myself!
Awww these Christmas wishes make me wanna cry!
Everyone getting text messages from Santa!! LOL
I always see Peets Coffee, is it that good? Lol
Now he’s bribing a cop? He’s going to jail too! Lol
The writing of this is so cute! It’s honestly not as good as some of the Netflix Christmas movies I’ve seen though.
“Can you see love? Can you see sorrow? Can you see joy? Is there anything realer than that?”
I like the messages in this movie but it lacks something.
These nigguhs playing cards! Lol
Choir singing about missing Santa and the black guy is hilarious! Lol
OMG this is making me wanna cry!
“I know Christmas can’t solve all our problems but it gives us hope.”
I get it! She’s scared. She knows everything she needs to. She has ALL the power to do it, but she’s scared!
OMG, imposter syndrome much?
“Know what I’m scared of? Some kid waking up and seeing me and saying you’re not Santa!” That’s me, omg.
OMG! I get it now! So the clothes don’t fit (literally) until she BELIEVES in herself. We don’t fit into our new world, or our new life, new job, whatever it is, until we believe we belong there! Omg I’m gonna cry because this is so me!
Who the HELL left macaroons? LOL
This really isn’t THAT great! I wanna LOVE it, but I don’t. I like it, not love it. But I LOVE the messages in this, it’s just missing something.
OMG why does them singing merry Christmas Santa make me wanna cry?
OMG I’m really gonna cry!
Traditions change! Things change!
What happened to the Ho Ho Ho after Merry Christmas tho? Lol
Click here to read my full review of Noelle.
In Disney+’s holiday comedy “Noelle,” Kris Kringle’s daughter is full of Christmas spirit and holiday fun, but wishes she could do something “important” like her beloved brother Nick, who will take over for their father this Christmas. When Nick is about to crumble like a gingerbread cookie from all the pressure, Noelle suggests he take a break and get away…but when he doesn’t return, Noelle must find her brother and bring him back in time to save Christmas.
