This is a cute movie. If you like movies from the Hallmark Channel's 25 Days of Christmas movie month, you will like this movie. Family friendly.

Sometimes you find a diamond

"This was a wonderful movie. Not only was it heartwarming but it illustrated a gospel point better than any other movie I have ever seen. Jesus said "You must lose your life to save it." and this is the lesson Calvin learns. When he stops trying to manipulate the situation and just does what is right (another gospel point), he abandons himself to just enjoying the time he has with his family. Noboby ever lies on their death bed and says "gee I wish I had taken my family business public!" or "nice family, but I'm really bummed about that business failing 30 years back." Watch this movie and get your priorities straight."

"The 12 Days of Christmas is one of those rather innane made-for-tv Christmas movies that crop up every holiday season. I believe this was a USA network picture as I recall. The movie basically borrows elements from Groundhog Day, It's A Wonderful Life, and Scrooge to arrive at its story. Steven Weber, a fairly likable actor plays Calvin a business owner who has taken the family store and built it into a national chain. But this has of course hurt him in his personal life leading to his marriage disolving and alienating his son and brother.

Calvin has an accident and wakes up to find that he's essentially dead...He's meets Nurse Angie who is his guardian Angel and he is told, ala Scrooge that he has 12 days to set things right with the rest of his family and his life...or else. Shannon provides most of the laughs in her own usual manic way, basically hammering Calvin over the head on what he has to do. And of course in the end we have Calvin discovering the true meaning of Christmas and he sets things right with his family. The performances were very good it's just too bad there wasn't more of an original story for them to work with."

"A cute modernized "remake" (or rip-off) of ITS A WONDERFUL LIFE.
Weber makes the film.
Of course he really wasn't such a bad guy to start with which throws the story a little out of whack... heck, he saved the family business from Chapter 11 and made it a success so the whole family is now financially secure.... cut the guy some slack!!

We watched this the same day as the Pitt/Jolie movie MR AND MRS SMITH and actually enjoyed this one a bit more."
