Not Comparable to The Christmas Shoes
Rebekah A. Lane | USA | 10/24/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Last night my sister found this at our local movie rental, and I was really excited because The Christmas Shoes broke my heart . . . in a good way. After watching this, however, all I can say is that it's interesting, enjoyable, and -- in a few places -- genuinely touching. I really wish they had done a better job with this. The plot is unfocused and flimsy. This guy Nathan (Neil Patrick Harris) loses a teenage boy on the operating table and is suddenly ready to give up his career as a doctor to return to his hometown and work in his widowed father's auto shop. To me, the motive for this sudden change was too weak. Perhaps if there had been a series of setbacks and dissapointments with his job . . . but they didn't make time for it. Soon he is attracted to a spunky young schoolteacher and starts dating her, not knowing that her health is in jeporady due to a bad liver. She is a lot like his mother was -- very compassionate, loves kids and helping people, etc; etc. His insecurities keep him from sharing with her about his decision to quit being a doctor, which causes problems in their relationship when she finds out later. Meanwhile Nathan and his dad have trouble understanding each other's needs, so there is some drama from that quarter. There are several underdeveloped and distracting sub-plots, the dialog is trite, and the scenes that were meant to be heartwarming usually get bogged down in syrip. But Neil Patrick Harris's bad acting during the last leg of the movie is the straw that breaks the cammel's back. He is able to potray Nathan as being attracted to his love interest, but he entirely fails to potray the emotions Nathan would have expirienced upon finding out she was very likely to die. There was no passion, no agony. . . just frusteration. They should have chosen a straight man for the role. I also missed the beautiful Christmas carols that were in The Christmas Shoes. The only singing in The Christmas Blessing was country music."
Not the best...

"The acting was not that great and the story was thrown together. I don't understand why the writers can't just try to script it from the book. It was just too far out there. In opinion, this is a terrible sequel to The Christmas Shoes."
Very touching Movie!

"This is a real "down to earth" movie. It shows family love, God's love and the ability one can have when they believe and ask God for help in times of tragedy in their lives. There are very sad moments in this movie but the end is rewarding. Be ready for a lot of tears as you follow this family through one of the deepest tragedies one can incounter in this life!"
