Easy watching
1 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this movie. Easy and enjoyable with great acting. I don't believe that every movie has to be thought provoking or deep. Sometimes, people just want to sit back and relax, fall into the story line and enjoy and hour and a half without having to think too much. This movie is a staple for me every Christmas. As I said, the acting is great; I believe the story and that I am at the cabin with them. I also feel the heart ache at the end when she wants to stay but can't. People are lonely during the holiday, and sometimes they are more alone with family than without. This movie moves me in so many ways. Simple, clean and believable.
