I like to think my life matters.
Oh, your life matters, you've touched other people's lives in ways you don't even realize.
How do you know that?
Cause you've touched my life.

You understand? It's over. I forgive you for everything.
The old Calypso song goes "If you want to be happy for the rest of your life, never make a pretty woman your wife." But, what are you supposed to do if your fiancé is Penelope Cruz? That is Paul Walker's (The Fast and the Furious) problem, and he has a jealous streak. Who wouldn't with Cruz, but it is going to kill his upcoming marriage. No problem, Alan Arkin (Little Miss Sunshine) comes to the rescue in a strange way and saves the day.
But, Walker isn't the only one with a problem. Susan Sarandon (Dead Man Walking) has a mother with Alzheimer's and her life is a mess. Who to save her but a burned-out priest (Robin Williams). Well, they really save each other.
This is a sentimental Christmas tale with some laughs, but it is mostly about Christmas miracles. Watch it for the great cast.
