I am fall in love with this movie when I first watched it. Now,I watch it
over and over. though, it brings fresh tear every single time.
Great movie to watch in the morning to have a good start for your day. It's a guaranteed happy tear movie.
This is why I love Christmas. People gathering and renewing life with hapiness abound! Jimmy Stewart is phenomenal and this movie will send you to bed with a much improved outlook on life! I recommend that everyone watch this movie every year for life!
Interested in learning everything you need to know about film acting in
over 2 hours? Then observe the glorious Jimmy Stewart in "It's A Wonderful
Life." It's all there. Just keep watching his eyes. Ask any actor and
will tell you that the secret to good acting isn't what you do when you're
reciting lines - it's what you do when you're NOT saying anything. Stewart
was the MASTER. Proof? Take a look at the scene towards the end when
turns away from talking to his mother (who in Clarence's world does not
recognize him) on the porch of Ma Bailey's Boarding House... oh my GOD,
way he looks into and THROUGH the camera, the film, the walls of the
across time and straight into your soul! How did he do it? And to think he
never won an Oscar - shows what a sham that whole concept
So I watched it again for the billionth time this past holiday (NBC actually seems PROUD of the fact that they have a lock on the TV rights and yet feel no pressure to perhaps NOT cram as many commercials as possible into a masterpiece) and a funny thought occurred to me: wouldn't it have made more sense for Clarence to simply tell George WHAT HAPPENED TO THE $8,000 ?!? :-)
The best Christmas movie ever made. A wonderful story about a man and the difference one person can make in the lives of so many people. Christmas wouldn't be the same without this classic. If you've never seen the movie (you need to see it) and if you don't own it on DVD (you have to buy it and buy it now)
Love this film and never get tired of watching it. Jimmy Stewart's performance in particular is wonderful and heartfelt, but I like most or all of his films. In this movie, I especially the love phone scene between he and Donna Reed, wow!!! I've seen it for several Christmases now and that scene still makes me cry, he exudes such tender emotion. Beautiful story, superb actors, great movie!!
This movie is now 55 years old. It is the best movie ever. All the ideals expressed in this movie are still 100% valid today. The performance of Jimmy Stewart absolutely blows me away. Even seeing it for the umpteenth time, I got choked up all throughout the movie. There is no denying the focus of the movie: life is more valuable through the people you effect than the fame and fortune you make. The idea that this is just a Christmas movie is silly; everytime I feel down or meaningless, this movie shows me exactly what life is all about. I want to be George Bailey, because, as brother Harry says "To my big brother George. The richest man in town." Anyone who has not truly watched this movie is missing out on one of the most important lessons of life.
One of the best movies ever made, Frank Capra's Christmas masterpiece shows
us that even in the depths of our despair, our lives mean something to the
people around us. The overall message of "It's A Wonderful Life" is that
all lives are interconnected, everyone's life touches so many others, that
when one person doesn't exist, it leaves an "awful hole." Capra's genius
was that even though he gave us small town stereotypes, they were lovingly
human. The characters were nearly all likeable, even when they had
problems, and you honestly feel for the misery of George Bailey and the
confusion among his family at his plight. In the end, George is redeemed
the people he helped all the time, and Clarence, the guardian angel,
gets his wings.
an outstanding film about redemption and realization.
It really is a wonderful life, isn't it? How could someone not think so after watching this? One of the few movies that is guaranteed to make a grown man cry, "Wonderful Life" is a staple of the Holiday season around my home. Truly uplifting, very nearly epic in it's message and scope and one of the few unadulterated tear-jerkers, it looks to remain a staple of every new generation. Among Jimmy Stewart's many grand performances, his every-man, uncelebrated hero in "Wonderful Life" is probably his best loved. To describe this movie is pointless--if you haven't seen it, do--if you have, see it again. "Should auld acquaintance be forgot..."
It's a Wonderful Life is a great movie to watch, especially on Christmas. This movie is wonderful. Wonderful story and legendary actors. Although I haven't seen the movie in it's entirety, I've seen enough to be able to comment on it. If you haven't seen this movie, you've got to buy it or rent it. Chances are they'll show it on Christmas on TV. This movie inspires and encourages men, children and women.
This film never fails to lose my interest every time I see it. With a moral that is relevant to anyone, anywhere whatever the time you are watching it, this film appeals to all. James Stewart brings his own sympathetic style to the role of George Bailey making the film highly watchable and appealing. This film is certainly a credit to it's director and actors. Brilliant.
