Excellent film - entire family would enjoy.
26 December 2002 | by (Kingsport, TN) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of the very best Christmas movies around. It has a good mystery along with a good lesson to be learned regarding the important things in life. Also, the love between the grandparents and grandson is very moving. Highly recommend this movie.
