Our family just finished watching this movie tonight. We wanted to spend the Thanksgiving weekend together and went to find an appropriate movie for all of us. Our first pick was "Christmas with the Kranks", but they were sold out at our local video store. I had never heard of "Blizzard" but the G rating as opposed to everything else available PG13, hooked me in. There are 4 children, ages 5-10 in our home and mom and dad make 6. I think it was a great film for the family and would recommend it to anyone wanting to get into the Christmas spirit. It was the kind of movie that made everyone "feel good" on the inside after watching it. I think all our kids thoroughly enjoyed it, and it wasn't beneath our 10yr old (daughter) who said "I'm glad you picked this movie mom." Great "family movie night" film! The importance of good quality films in the society we live in has been overlooked for too long and I am all for the reintroduction of character-building stories like what we saw tonight. The 2 story lines going on at the same time reminded me of "The Princess Bride", which is one of our family's favorites. I liked the fact that there was reality that even good wholesome characters make mistakes sometimes and that it is not the end of the world; there is forgiveness and second chances. It teaches our kids that we don't live in a perfect world and there are disappointments and we must learn to deal with them and grow from there. I'm glad the movie we wanted, wasn't available or we may never have seen this.
