Outstanding movie - Our TOP favorite!
23 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My wife and I watch a variety of Christmas movies each season - this one we viewed for the 1st time and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is my top favorite. Tim Matheson and Melissa Sue Gilbert have perfect chemistry in this movie...they are PERFECT for each other and appear completely natural. If you want to watch a great Christmas movie that will warm the soul...this is the one!! The story is that the Bean Tractor Co. is having financial issues and may need to layoff or close the plant. Tim (Jake) is chosen to go to the Athens, Nebraska plant unannounced to see what his thoughts are as he is a senior executive. He meets lovely Melissa Sue after his car skids off the road in a snowstorm several days before Christmas...the chemistry between them starts right away - two hearts meeting. Merry Christmas to all in 2008!
