The best film I've seen in a little long time. This film should be on everyone's Holiday must see list along with Its a Wonderful Life. Once you see it you will Love it! It's very much the old fashioned family movie with a variety of important morals people need more of. It used to be a requirement in films that now seem to be a lost talent. We need more positive influences in our daily life and this film can help bring some of those good values back. Watching a good movie like this can remind a person of what's really important in life. As someone once said, "You slide down in your seat and make yourself comfortable. On the screen in front of you, the movie image appears— enormous and overwhelming. If the movie is a good one, you allow yourself to be absorbed". This movie does just that. True enjoyment!
