9/10
Moving and funny.

If you want something new and a little out of the ordinary for Christmas movies, this is the one. Dee Wallace Stone plays an American woman married to an Australian man whom is a farmer. They have two children, an older daughter and a younger son. There is also a wealthy widowed Englishman with a son. (If my memory serves me right, I believe the Englishman's son is courting the farmer's daughter.) It is actually about two families dealing with different situations ( a drought being one of them) and is at times moving and at other times side-splitting in its humor (as mentioned before a scene with a roasted pig, a heat-exhausted guest, a screaming housekeeper, and a Yule log escaping the fireplace making for a very funny scene). It would be wonderful to see this come out on DVD because it really is a good Christmas movie. Well worth watching if you can find it. When I watched this movie the title was 'Miracle Down Under'.
