Goofs

In the restaurant when Buddy and his father are eating oyster's, the Tabasco bottle on the table is not vintage from the 1930s. It is the present-day bottle with a red plastic top. That would not have been a 30s bottle. See more »

Buy it and watch it every Holiday Season
17 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is wonderful. I can not find enough great things things to say about it. Its a very special film!

One thing this film does is that it shows that its "life's little moments that count the most".

Now in this film A young man is sent to visit his estranged father for Christmas in 1930 in New Orleans which is played by Henry Winkler! The boy however is wiser then his father and more compassionate then most adults will ever be.

The great Katherine Hepburn gives a performance that proves her iconic status. Swoosie Kurtz co-stars and gives a performance that at the end makes you want to reach through the screen give her a huge hug.

There are many holiday theme movies but this is one of the best!
