Really good little family film.
3 July 2001 | by (Michigan, Detroit) – See all my reviews

Solid little family movie. My children liked it. Good Christmas themed story. It was a bit predictable, but I think most of these types of stories are things we've seen before. I liked the values taught. Recommend the rental for the kids.
