The Lacey Chabert Hallmark Movie That's Actually Worth Your Time

Lacey Chabert is best known for her role as Gretchen Wieners in "Mean Girls." For soap opera fans, she's a familiar face from her time starring on "All My Children" as Erica Kane's daughter, Claudia. While her famous line, "I'm sorry that people are so jealous of me ... but I can't help it that I'm so popular," became somewhat of an identity for the "Mean Girls" generation, her acting roles go far beyond playing a ditzy high schooler (via Rotten Tomatoes).

In fact, Chabert got her start as a young girl on the show "Star Search" (per IMDb). Her initial fame led her to Broadway for two years before she was cast on the television show "A Little Piece of Heaven" at just nine-years-old. After acting in many award-winning TV dramas, Chabert dipped her toes into voice acting. She was the voice of Eliza Thornberry on the Nickelodeon show "The Wild Thornberrys," and voiced parts for popular '90s shows like "Hey Arnold!" and "Hercules." Of all her parts, though, Chabert may actually be best known for her time on the Hallmark channel, where she's been crowned the "Queen of Hallmark Christmas Movies." The actress has starred in 18 — yes 18! —Hallmark movies so far, but which of them are actually worth watching?

Lacey Chabert's best role is in an elevator

If you turn on the Hallmark channel at any given moment, you'll likely see Lacey Chabert on your screen. The actress has starred in numerous Hallmark movies, including "The Wedding Veil," its two sequels, and "Sweet Carolina" (via Hallmark Channel). Of course, a collection of Christmas movies like "Christmas at Castle Hart," "Time for Us to Come Home for Christmas," and "Christmas Waltz" are what Chabert is best known for on the channel.

Of all her charming movies, the one that's actually worth sitting down and watching is called "Elevator Girl." In the film, Chabert stars alongside Ryan Merriman, who many know from his days on The Disney Channel. According to Hallmark, Chabert plays a girl named Liberty who gets stuck in an elevator with a young, successful lawyer. The two, although widely different, fall in love and see if their love-at-first-sight ends in a successful relationship. While the plot is a bit cliché, the movie is funny and adorable, and it may even prompt you to put down your phone to watch uninterrupted.
