Happy Holidays
20 December 2008 | by (Fresno, CA) – See all my reviews

THIS is what a heart-warming Christmas movie is all about. The feeling that represents why many of us look forward, every year, to watching the Christmas season movies. A feel-good feeling that you can let spill over into your hustle-bustle season's rituals and calm your frenetic pace. I only wish I could give this a 12 rating! Joining "A Grandpa for Christmas" and "The Christmas Card", this movie enters into my top 5 picks for the seasonal specials. And what a pleasant surprise is Henry Winkler! He was wonderful and so believable. I never imagined this level of performance from "the Fonz". There are those who may think it too predictable, but that's what kept me attached, awaiting the ultimate prize ending. I only wish that the endings would not end so quickly. It could spill over for a longer effect if we could just put the best part on a lingering pause. And really give it more time to settle into our hearts. Hope you enjoy too!
