Holiday for Love, A (1996) (TV)
8 October 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Melissa Gilbert and Tim Matheson are terrific together. They have a strong chemistry on screen. I also love Noel, the daughter, and all the cast. This is such a wonderful, inspiring, homey, family oriented movie. I hope strongly they make a video. I want it so badly.
