great movie
26 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed Sunshine Christmas and watch it whenever it comes on TV. I have it on VHS tape and watch it on my own also. I really liked the premise and the stars, especially Bill Mumy and Corey Fischer. Sunshine was one of my very favorite shows of the 70's. I felt that this movie fit my life as it was in the 70's and when I saw it Christmas 2004 it brought back some very wonderful and tender memories,as well as some sad ones. It also brought home how much growing up I have done since then and how much I miss those fun, 'innocent' times. This movie and series showed us young people were not only into drugs, sex and rock n roll in the 70's as most adults at the time thought. The John Denver music was wonderful especially the title song, Sunshine on my shoulders, my favorite song.
