Excellent Movie
30 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excellent holiday movie along the same lines as It's A Wonderful Life. Tammy Blanchard was AWESOME!!! Peter Falk was excellent also. Would love to see Tammy Blanchard get more featured roles, just saw an old Law & Order episode that she was in also & she does a great job there as well. Falk plays a haphazard angel along the same lines as Claraence in It's a Wonderful Life that even though he is being hounded by his higher ups, proves that he knows what he is going in regards to the situation at hand. This should be played EVERY Christmas & become a family tradition. Now, I am just trying to ramble on enough to get to the 10th line!! :-)
