Storyline

Arkansas furniture maker Grins Jenkins is a cheerful man and loving father to his five kids, as well as the life of every party in their small town. When his wife Sharon, who used to be the 'bad cop', slowly dies of TBC, so does Grins' sense of fun. The kids refuse to keep mourning forever, but dad practically retires from the world and turns his back, opposing them enjoying life again. Then Christmastide arrives, and son Alvin refuses to let his kid brother's dream be spoiled. Written by KGF Vissers

Two movies in one
1 November 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

First we see the happy, carefree family. They are a bunch of old-south hillbillies. They might not be too easy on the eyes, but they have big hearts. They are simple, decent, loving people.

Then we see the family in sorrow with the loss of their mother. The father starts losing it and goes crazy. But the mother has left many wonderful kids, and they help him realize not all is lost.

There is good banjo music, nice scenery, laughs, tears, drama, a quaint wood cabin with a specially designed glass room, and other highlights...

Hooray for papa's angels!
