Decent Heartwarmer
16 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie was enjoyable. It was a little predictable but most Chistmas movies are. It was well acted and well presented - they casting choices were solid. It would certainly be suitable for children to watch, and it is something you can show your elderly relatives too. The dilemmas the boy in the movie faced and his different solutions were realistic. This movie is upbeat and amusing. But, it also deals with traditional Christmas themes and the problems with focusing on yourself versus the satisfaction of focusing on others. So many Christmas movies feel the need to be heart wrenching and dramatic - this one is primarily feel good.

If you are expecting Hitchcock - then pass. If you are looking for a feel good Christmas movie that kids and adults would enjoy (except maybe the most hardboiled action movie junkie) this is a good choice.
