Another Rip Off Of "Groundhog Day"
31 January 2018 | by Christmas-ReviewerSee all my reviews

Review Date 1/31/0218

A self-absorbed 13-year-old (Erik von Detten) reliving Christmas, day after day, until he appreciates its meaning.

He pouts about gifts he doesn't want. Realities he doesn't want to see and little sister that is just a pain in the butt to him.

This is OKAY at best. However what it does show the viewer is the fact we will keep repeating mistakes if we don't learn from them. Those mistakes might not exactly repeat themselves in the same way but if you don't learn from them they will manifest somewhere.

What I like best about this film was that Christmas is more "Than gifts and giving gifts". "Its the giving of your time" how we "Treat One Another".

Family Safe.
