A little heavy-handed but I liked it
27 December 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's Christmas Eve and a man with a wife and two children can't find a job. His wife is heavily depressed as is he. He turns to drink and finally leaves his wife because he's a failure....

It gets better after that but it really pours on the pathos at first. It's not as depressing as it sounds and the second half is very light and cheerful and it all ends on a happy note.

Minor but very enjoyable.
