A Perfect Family Christmas Movie
11 December 2004 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

I watched this film for the first time on the Hallmark Channel last week and it is now a permanent fixture in my video collection, please please bring it out on DVD in the UK. As always Dolly Parton's warmth shines through, making this a great family film. Yes the acting is not tops but the simple sets, the innocence of the kids and the general easy going story makes it perfect. An added bonus is Dolly's singing, it is straight from the heart and gives you the feeling of watching a part of Dolly's childhood. Yes as usual she is done up to the nines and wanders around the Smoky Mountains in her high heels but that is part of the charm and whimsy of Dolly and this film, just take it for what it is, "ENTERTAINMENT" that all the family can watch and feel a part of . A Great Christmas family country classic leaving you feeling the warmth of Christmas!!
