The title is wrong
25 February 2018 | by Christmas-ReviewerSee all my reviews

Review Date 2/24/2018

PLEASE BEWARE OF SOME REVIEWERS THAT ONLY HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW. I HAVE OVER 400 REVIEWS OF "CHRISTMAS RELATED FILMS & SPECIALS" WHEN ITS A POSITIVE THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. NOW I HAVE NO AGENDA! I REVIEW MOVIES & SPECIALS AS A WAY TO KEEP TRACK OF WHAT I HAVE SEEN! I HAVE DISCOVERED MANY GEMS IN MY QUEST TO SEE AS MANY " C H R I S T M A S " MOVIES AS I CAN.

Now Someone keeps reporting my reviews. I guess they are jealous because I do tell the truth. I want to point out that I never make snide remarks about actors weight or real life sexual orientation. If there acting is terrible or limited "I talk about that". If a story is bad "I will mention that" So why am I being "picked on"? IMDB? When one of my reviews gets deleted IMDB will not even tell me what someone found offensive. Well on to this review.

This is an enjoyable film. The title is however very misleading. I did not read what this film was about. What I thought I was getting was a film about "A Child who spreads the Joy of Christmas" in any way he can. Well that is not the story. What this film is about how a man and child struggling to stay a family during Christmas. The main story is that a Chicago social worker (Cicely Tyson) helps a jazz saxophonist (Michael Warren) adopt a son (Trent J. Cameron) after losing his wife.

The cast is great. The story is a tad predictable. However the overall film is family safe and well worth watcing!
