A Little Refresher
In case you haven’t seen this movie since last Christmas, or if this will be your first time watching it, here’s a brief little reminder of what it’s about!
Amy Stone is a successful young businesswoman who works on Madison Avenue in New York City for a big corporation, and she’s on the brink of receiving a highly coveted promotion. Everything seems to be going swimmingly for her in every regard, except of course her love life. Cue the bad news from her small hometown. She finds out that her beloved Aunt Linda has recently passed away and left her entire estate (along with her bakery) to Amy and one of Amy’s old high school flames, Jack, with whom Amy had a major falling out in her youth. Ouch. As if that wasn’t awkward enough, amidst all of the drama and bickering that’s bound to ensue, Aunt Linda has also charged the two former lovers with organizing the annual holiday cookie bake-off that takes place in her establishment!

The Cast of A Christmas Reunion
As a few fans have already pointed out online, the movie A Christmas Reunion might as well be considered a Starship Troopers (1997) cast reunion of sorts, since both movies star Denise Richards, Patrick Muldoon, and Jake Busey! Although both films have vastly different plotlines, it’s always fun and interesting when two movies share the same cast members. Obviously, a lot has happened and changed in the lives of these actors throughout the 18-year gap between both film releases, so let’s dive right in!
Denise Richards as Amy Stone
There’s no denying that the beautiful actress Denise Richards, who was once married to actor Charlie Sheen, was a huge star in the ‘90s. Along with Starship Troopers, she starred in such notable movies as Wild Things (1998) and appeared in a whole slew of popular TV series throughout the 1990s and beyond, even making appearances on Two and a Half Men and Anger Management, alongside her ex-husband. Richards is currently working on a few projects that are in post-production, so keep an eye out for her in 2018!
Patrick Muldoon as Jack Evans
Patrick Muldoon is a California native who’s starred in countless film and television roles throughout his illustrious career. In addition to Starship Troopers, he also appeared in the original Melrose Place (which ran in the mid-1990s) as Richard Hart. Before that, he also had a recurring role on the teen hit sitcom, Saved by the Bell as Jeffrey Hunter. Currently, Muldoon is involved in several film and television projects that are in post-production and will be released sometime next year.
Catherine Hicks as Aunt Linda
You might recognize Catherine Hicks from the hit CW and WB show, 7th Heaven as Annie Camden. Since the show wrapped in 2007, however, Hicks has been keeping herself busy with a series of TV movies, including A Christmas Reunion, Win, Lose or Love (2015), and Honeymoon From Hell (2016). In total, she has 63 credits to her name and has been acting professionally for most of her adult life, beginning her acting career at Cornell University.
Jake Busey as Dylan Caruthers
Jake Busey has led a fascinating life to say the least. As the son of renowned and eccentric actor, Gary Busey, most of Jake’s childhood was spent on the road traveling with his father’s various musical groups from one city to another. He also spent much of his childhood on film sets learning the art of filmmaking and took an interest in it from an early age. As a result, he’s managed to build a very successful career for himself in Hollywood and has appeared on award-winning shows like Ray Donovan and in high-profile movies like Enemy of the State (1998).
