Just awful
30 November 2009 | by (Deltona, FL USA) – See all my reviews

Bad, even by "Hallmark Movie" standards. Look, I understand that Hallmark have a very specific audience they are trying to reach - but there are many, MANY other movies in this genre that are at least watchable. They do at least TRY to give it a modern edge with some ridiculous chat-room nonsense at the beginning, and our hero the son hams it up to his camcorder for most of the movie. Plus, they do throw in a girlfriend into the mix, and lets not forget the evil corporation trying to kill the tree. Oh no! In end, however, it's yet another rehashing of a "Father-son relationship rekindled" plot (and not a very well done one at that). The movie starts to drown in clichés by the end. Watch it if only for the amusement value, or to make your Mother happy.
