Heartwarming and relevant for the state of the economy!
20 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was an excellent movie that I would recommend to anyone! The quality of the film-making was exceptional, from the camera work to the actors to the audio clarity! This is truly a classic in the making! It has a message that is relevant to the state of the current economy as well as any time! There will always be individuals that can relate to Jack in that they have been laid off or let go from a job! This movie is timeless! It has all of the qualities of a truly great movie: humor, drama, thought-provoking, and tears. It makes you appreciate the less-fortunate people in our world and be more compassionate to them. Homeless for the Holidays is definitely the best Christmas movie for 2009 and for the future! It should shape up to be a classic!
