Trivia

The scene where Shelby (Gretta Hambrook) gives Jack (Matt Moore) an envelope with money inside is actually based on a true event. When writer/director/producer George A. Johnson was going through financially difficult times, he was approached by a young girl named Shelby, who had raised over $100, and gave it to Johnson so that his family "could have a good Christmas". The envelope used in this scene is the actual envelope that Shelby gave to Johnson, and if you look closely, you will notice that the envelope says "Johnson Family". See more »

A must see movie!
20 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

Homeless for the Holidays is a great movie. While it is a hilarious movie it also is very serious and has a great message. Homeless for the Holidays reminds us what giving means even when the state of the economy is bad. This movie offers hope that whatever you may be going through is just a chapter in your life and it reminds us of what is truly important around the holidays and every part of the year. Throughout the course of the movie you will laugh, cry and be drawn into this story that shows both the ups and downs of joblessness. Even in those ups and downs is shows how when you put your Faith in God you will have everything you need. This is a must see movie.
