Movie Reviews

Not an Oscar - Just Great Entertainment
Susann BeDell | Tucson, AZ USA | 07/19/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"While I agree with the previous reviewer regarding the original movie being a classically better production, I must say that I find this remake with Dyan Cannon and Kris Kristopherson a delightful and light holiday movie. It is one of those "feel good" holiday movies that gets you in the spirit of Christmas. Tony Curtis is halirious as the producer who is worried about ratings and network politics; the side stories are light and provide comic relief every few scenes. If you are looking for a deeply emotional movie like "It's a Wonderful Life", then this movie is not for you. However, if you, like me, want to intersperse George Bailey (admittedly a humourous movie in many areas) with a few laughs and a simple, light hearted movie during the Christmas season, give this movie a chance. If you're looking for light-hearted romance based on the spirit of Christmas, you won't be disappointed with this remake (or the original) Christmas in Connecticut."
Update of a Christmas Classic
Jeanne Thompson | Long Island , New York, USA | 12/20/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I actually rented this movie the first time by mistake after a freind had recommended the original with Barbara Stanwyck. After viewing both versions (both are excellent) I decided that I prefered this timely updated version. Dyan Carrol is charming as the Martha Stewart-type hostess of a tv cooking and home-craft show who dispite being unmarried and living in a sparse city loft, broadcasts a quite different image to her viewing audience. She talks on her show about her (totally fictitious) daughter, grandchild, husband and her big country house in Connecticut while cooking up gourmet dishes that are actually produced behind the scenes by her assistant. Her producer (played with hysterical results by Tony Curtis) cooks up a publicity scheme involving a live Christmas show broadcast from her Connecticut "home" where she will be surrounded by her "friends and family". When he also arranges for her to be playing hostess to a reluctant local hero (played by Kris Kristofferson), who is unaware that this is all a charade, an already humorous plotline becomes a series of hilarious mixups, mishaps and mistaken identities. This truly wonderful, heartwarming and funny movie is sure to become one of your holiday favorites too."
A Fun Remake of the Original

"Okay - I admit it, I love Dyan Cannon and even though this doesn't have the depth or sentimentality of the original, this more contemporary version is still a great holiday film. Cannon's comic timing here is great and the best reason to get this version. Yeah, it's cute, but it is also charming and good fun. Recommended for your annual holiday viewing."
A Very Good Remake!

"I have seen the original 1945 Christmas in Connecticut movie that starred Barbara Stanwyck, I taped it when it was shown on TCM and there is no doubt that it is a wonderful movie that is very underated when it comes to Christmas classics but I also liked the 1992 made for cable remake and no it wouldn't win an Emmy Award but it was a pretty charming movie and every year I try to buy at least one Chrismas movie on DVD for my collection and this past Christmas of 2004 I bought this movie on DVD and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys Christmas movies."
