Top-Notch, Warm-Hearted Christmas Movie
3 June 2002 | by (Fairbanks, U.S. Territory of Alaska) – See all my reviews

This was the second time I've seen this in the past six months and this 2nd time was just as good, maybe even better, than the first. What a wonderful movie. Yep, Connie Selleca is made-for-tv royalty but here she comes out above average and country music singer Randy Travis fits right in without missing a beat. Only drawback to this movie is South Carolina, where this takes place, is in the south and doesn't get *that* much snow, even in the upstate. (Maybe it was an irregular year?) Other than that, overall this had some decent acting as well as very smart writing. The runaway kid was definitely the little scene stealer. Just about everything that came out of his mouth wasn't too corny and was excellently executed. He was what held this story together. Rue McClanahan's nice, likable performance added to this like a piece of a puzzle that needed to be there. Easily this could have been, not really a disaster, but another drab & dull piece of work but it wasn't, it really did shine. Like I said, Randy Travis fit right in, he was the southern gentleman, another very likable character. Come to think of it, just about everyone who's important to the story in this, you could easily have a liking for... there wasn't a bad guy or anyone you rolled your eyes or really despised. Even the one person who'd be closest to that I kind of felt for. She didn't get the guy in the end of the romance part of this story, but then again, without even watching this you know she wouldn't. That's the nature of TV movies like this, they're usually not full of twists and surprises which is often a TV movie's downfall. This was predictable but had no downfall, nothing to make me yawn and everything to feel good about Christmas and coming together, helping those less fortunate, and being with those you love. Make a list of 500 not so great Christmas movies then make a list of the 50 best. This one'll be on the list of the best! My grade: A
