Storyline

Willow Creek, Alaska, is going through a depression because the local cannery has shut down putting many of the residents out of work. Ray and Pete are truck-driving brothers, different as day and night, who are hired by an old friend to bring Christmas presents and one huge surprise from sunny California up to his home town. Along the way, the brothers and Pete's son Michael argue and get stuck in a blizzard, but finally reconcile with each other. Written by Jeff Olsen

Goofs

At the end of the movie, on Christmas day, the residents of Willow Creek (who have no money) are able to hire someone to spray fake snow on Al's house. Something like this would be very costly. Especially at the last minute AND on Christmas day. See more »

Quotes

Ray: What would you think about maybe staying in Willow Creek for just a little while and giving this chili business a shot?
Jessie: Well I always figured home is where the people you love are. So if Willow Creek is where you want to be, I'm home.

Still a wonderful movie
14 November 2008 | by (Louisiana, United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of my all-time favorite movies. This film proves that you don't have to use profanity every other word, endless scenes of meaningless violence, and that hope does still exist. Yes, it does look like a Dukes Of Hazzard reunion, but they make this film work. Hoyt Axton is excellent as Al Besinger.

The scenery is beautiful to view. The plot is wonderfully set, with a heart-warming ending. It is a perfect film to watch at Christmas time. I would not be worried about letting my young children watch this film because of the message it sends out.

I wish that movies made today would take some lessons.
