Great heart-warming Christmas movie, we enjoyed it immensely!
24 December 1999 | by (Keswick, Ontario CANADA) – See all my reviews

This is the second time my wife and I have viewed this film and we think it's a perfect Christmas film. It's heart-warming and can be viewed by the whole family. I hope in the near future that it is released on video as I would love to purchase a copy for my very own (that's my Christmas Wish).
