Always Been a Huge George Newbern Fan
3 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This Christmas film is a winner. George Newbern and Roma Downey star and after all these years I still hope they will do some other film together.

In this film The Sons of Mistletoe boy's orphanage is a happy place. Run by the charismatic Jimmy Adams (George Newbern, Father of the Bride), the home has become one big family. But when its largest benefactor dies and leaves the orphanage to his daughter, Helen Radke (Roma Downey, TV's Touched by an Angel), Jimmy worries about funding, especially as the old house begins to show its wear. Just when it appears that Ms. Radke is going to pull the plug on her father's investment, a Christmas miracle changes everything.

This film channels the Disney films of the 1960's & 1970's. George Newbern has an effortless charm that makes this film a standout.
