Love In The Time Of Christmas
30 November 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Love In The Time Of Christmas. Good clean Christmas family humor.

Love it! Love it! Love it! Family friendly. Not over the top. Funny, emotional etc. Real. My favorite actors, Morris Chestnut and Gabrielle, who have amazing chemistry when they collaborate, brought it once again!!! They are truly great actors, who aren't getting the recognition they deserve. Love it!

This movie was such a wonderful love story at Christmastime. A divorced mom who just wants to get on with life and love, daughter who wants Santa to make her mom's wishes come true, and a teenage son who just wants his parents to get back together. Well, Santa delivers, though the sleigh ride to love was not easy!!!

GREAT XMAS MOVIE TO WATCH WITH THE FAMILY
