My Choice for Best Christmas Movie of All-Time
3 December 2006 | by (Hampton, NH, United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is not available on DVD unless one cuts it himself off a taped-from-TV videotape. It is an "old-fashioned" Christmas tale--others have summarized the setting about the young boy's being stuck with a very grumpy old grandpa. Its plot is very unusual and very sensitive, because it deals with harsh realities of LOSS that we all face. The characters in this extended family help each other, sometimes without meaning to help, find meaning in their lives and help lift heavy BURDENS and family secrets that have haunted them for years. I taped this movie off TV in 1993, and have NOT seen it on TV since, which is a shame--they should wipe that BB-gun-boy Christmas movie permanently off television and substitute this REAL Christmas movie for it and play it EVERY Christmas so that people who don't remember how to feel and love rediscover these cozy sentiments.
