A movie that is worth watching over and over
30 November 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

A movie that is worth watching over and over I went to see this movie twice last year! it was sooooo good! I had a feeling that they were going have it come out on DVD around the holidays this year, which is good to watch wit the family for the holiday season! its a lot of laughs and some tears! very good movie!

The movie is more than just excellent. It has an all star cast that not only delivers the story they live and are the entire story. This is already a classic in our home where it is watched on a regular basis. I love the growth of the entore family as they lived, loved, and fought around the holiday. Wow it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
