Storyline

For spoiled, wealthy college girl Layla Turner (Keshia Knight Pulliam, Beauty Shop, TV's The Cosby Show), Christmas usually means designer wrapping paper and holiday gift bags from Bloomingdale's. But this year, Layla will learn the true meaning of the season when an unlikely angel in disguise (Pooch Hall, Hood of Horror, TV's The Game) arrives with a very special mission: to turn this pampered brat into a caring young woman! Don't miss this unforgettable modern-day Christmas Carol - a coming-of-age story full of heart and soul. Also stars Emmy nominee Tom Bosley (TV's Happy Days, Murder, She Wrote), Earl Billings (Thank You for Smoking, Antwone Fisher) and Richard Lawson (Guess Who, How Stella Got Her Groove Back).

Warm Christmas Message
10 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really appreciate a movie that captures the true spirit of Christmas. Many times we get caught up in the idea of presents and material possessions, that we forget that there are people who never experience a happy Christmas. And Christmas at Water's Edge reminds us of the true meaning of having family and friends in our lives. Filled with a great cast of notables such as Keisha Knight Pulliam and Tom Bosley creates a familiar setting for TV buffs who grew up with Happy Days and The Cosby Show. I thoroughly enjoyed the positive images all of the cast brought to the screen-especially for African Americans. Far to often television portrays the African American Family as entertainers as oppose to business people like the father portrayed in Christmas at Water's Edge. It was nice to see images of African Americans in another line of work.

Also, the story was inspiring and well thought out. The perfect story for young adults. Our young adults born in and after the 80's are of the "give me, and mine, mine, mine generation," that movies like this awaken them to recognize true meanings in life. Christmas at Water's Edge is a wholesome family movie worth repeating for years to come.
