a nice film
10 December 2002 | by (london) – See all my reviews

What a nice basic film, of course not a hollywood blockbuster, but how many xmas movies in the last 10 years have made it on to dvd like this one.

This was enjoyable enough to sit through without having to get up to fill the kettle or use the loo, and it still has a christmasy feeling about it even though its filmed almost entirely in an airport, the acting from Jobeth Williams is a little bit wooden though, not like her other more well known roles, she looks a bit bored and in need of filming to end, but the other main cast did a brilliant job, especially the two daughters. The story is basically about a couple heading for a divorce, who after taking advise from an elderly couple, that have been married for 40 years, decide to patch things up, none of this would have happened unless both there flights were delayed after a snow storm. The only real christmasy bits are of the dreadful clothes(hand knitted, granny jumpers) get the picture, and a few decorations that you don't really notice, but all in all a pleasant little film worth watching, with the kids, of course.
