Xmas fun
29 January 2002 | by (Sydney) – See all my reviews

This is just one of those movies that words can't explain. All I have to say is that this has to be one of the best Xmas movies I have seen for a long time. The music is great the location is lovely. Watching the movie you can see a lot of Sally field comming out of the main actor. Watch this movie with a loved one next Christmas.
