Storyline

When successful attorney, Mitch Bright (Daniel Baldwin), returns home after more than 20 years to the small town of Trapper Falls, Alaska he runs into his old high schools rivals: the Reed brothers, Dan (Ted McGinley) and Greg (Brad Stein). Dan is building a new platform for the town's traditional nativity scene, but he is the mayor of the town, the platform is being built with city money, and it's on city property. To top things off: Dan is even married to Kristen (Nancy Stafford) the girl both Dan and Mitch liked in high school. The first thing Mitch does is file a legal injunction against the nativity citing separation of church and state. The second thing he does is decide to run for mayor against his main rival Dan; Dan has been the mayor for years. Mitch accuses Dan of forcing his Christianity upon the entire town, then Mitch goes on a rant about the arrogance and hypocrisy of all Christians. Mitch has a way with people, and plans to bring more business to the town, and soon he ... Written by Tana Colburn

Atheists Are the Most Intolerant People
11 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

This movie was good. Nothing wrong with a good natured family film.

I see many atheists are bum-hurt over the movie message about belief and miracles. What I have come to realize is atheists are the most intolerant folks on the planet. They especially hate Christians but some reason love Islam.

This movie had a message of hope and has a family theme. It has the familiar TV characters and if you do not like a Christian family movie, avoid it. It's funny that atheists preach tolerance but if anyone dares oppose their view, their proverbial fangs and character fault shows.

Good movie for what it is 7 out of 10. This movie shows the follies of non-believers and why hope is better than none.
