An excellent re-creation of "It's a Wonderful Life"
25 December 2002 | by (New Jersey, USA) – See all my reviews

I love this production, especially the very end. It's a daunting task, to re-create one of the greatest movies of all time, but the cast and crew of "Merry Christmas George Bailey" do it beautifully. This is now one of my annual Christmas standards, along with "It's a Wonderful Life" and "A Christmas Story."
