Movie Reviews

(5 out of 5 stars)

"The screenplay justifiably won an Emmy. The movie was nominated for five (5) Emmies and won two (2). The dialog is brilliant and the leading characters are very appealing. It is one of the best movies that I have ever seen (I am reviewing the movie, not the DVD). It is a movie that the whole family would really enjoy.
The plot twist at the end is wonderful."
This Is a Good Christmas Movie!
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Off Season is a cute and heartwarming Christmas movie that I first watched on The Hallmark channel last December of 2004 and I liked this movie. It stars Rory Culkin (brother of MacCulay and Kiaran) as a ten yaar old boy who lives in a hotel resort with his mother played by Sherilynn Fenn (Twin Peaks) who works at the resort and he meets an elderly man named Sam Klausner played by Hume Cronyn (Cacoon) who he is convinced is Santa Claus who may be the real thing or a con artist. This is a good movie and it also stars Bruce Davidson as a potential love interest for the mother. If you liked this movie also check out the Christmas movie Santa and Pete in which Hume Cronyn plays Santa Claus. I think Off Season is a better movie but I also liked Santa and Pete which was pretty cute."

"Since we enjoy different looks at Santa, this movie provided a good story line. Hume Cronyn is good in almost any role. My husband plans to make it a part of our Christmas viewing."
