Lots of Music and Singing
26 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A great family show with musical artists. My family enjoyed it. I rated it as high as I did because it is a quality Christmas production. There seems to be a limited number of plot lines for Christmas. This film had a bittersweet twist that gave more substance to it. It is definitely not a fluff movie. I found nothing offensive that would prevent viewing by a family. Willie Nelson's character, Nick adds a bit of whimsy to the story. Harry Connick plays a caring, intelligent father with a tender heart and a load of guilt. It is well balanced with music and acting, which I thought was credible. It is a new movie this season and I bought it not knowing anything about it except that it had a cast of monumental musical talent. I was not disappointed, although a little more singing by this talented cast would have been welcome. It's a sweet story, but not saccharin.
