Great Movie
28 November 2007 | by See all my reviews

This is my favorite Christmas movie. I guess that when it showed on TV in the US, my parents taped it. Now we have a copy and I can't go a Christmas without watching it. Yes, it was made in the 80's but a lot of great films were! The story line is so cute and it will surely touch your heart. Though it might scare you that it is in French, they made an English version as well! Trust me, you will love this movie. It is good for children too. It is clean and fun for your whole family. My dad even took on the job of being the family ogre after watching it!! I hope you enjoy this movie as much as my family has. I have been watching this movie every Christmas for almsot 19 years.
