Movie Reviews

A rare movie
bookloversfriend | United States | 09/06/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is a find! It manages to deal with real people in a realistic way without resorting to the usual easy gimmick of making the people nasty and hostile. The people here are not perfect, but they are sympathetic.

Also, the relationships in this family are very realistic--again without making anyone a pain or an impossible person. Whoever wrote this had a lot of understanding of the relations between grown siblings and between grown children and their parents.

The film also explores some of the big questions of life and how important "little things" are in those big questions. The mother's admitting that she gave an incomplete version of her recipe to a friend who had admired the dish, and that she had been bothered by that and wants to make it right--this was priceless. Also, her determination to return the library book!

The transitions of the characters are well-developed and believable. They manage to work things out without everyone suddenly becoming angelic creatures without a fault in the world.

If you like human dramas about real but decent people, this is not a film to be missed. There are all too few like it.
Warm and wonderful Christmas!

"This moving incorperates all the elements of a magical, beautiful Christmas! Tracey Neeham (Sarah) is a terrific actress and her character is someone I would like as a friend. At first I thought that Natasha Gregson Wagner was not a very good actress because she was so "dead pan." Then I realized that her character, Beth, is a self-centered, pasionless, joyless person until the "magic" begins. Ronny Cox, Buddy, is one of the best character actors of our time and, of course, Meredith Baxter never disappoints. An enjoyable, heartwarming movie for Christmas or anytime!"
