I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 400 Christmas MOVIES.

BEWARE OF BOGUS REVIEWS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW. WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. NOW I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 400 Christmas MOVIES. I HAVE NO AGENDA. I AM FARE.

JoBeth Williams is one of Americas most reconcilable actors. She first made a huge impression in the film "Kramer Vs Kramer". She went on to star in "The Dogs of War" but her breakthrough role came when she landed the lead role in "Poltergeist" as the mom who will do anything to save her child. She was also great in the BASED ON A TRUE STORY films "Murder Ordained" "Adam" & "Baby M" In fact when it came to portraying real women nobody is better then her. In this film she is exceptional (as usual) but the story has problems near the end.

In this story a woman has filed for divorce after her husband cheated on her. It was a one night stand and her hurt was understanding but with the help of Mother Nature her kids and Two New Strangers in the airport she is forced to deal with the cheating issue because her husband is also now stuck at the airport and none of them can go anywhere.

Now this film isn't exactly a Christmas film. Just because this takes place on December 24th doesn't make this a Christmas Theme film but it is about "Hope" "Love" "Forgiveness" and looking at your own defects and trying to move forward after betrayal.

Not the greatest film but if you come across it on TV then watch it.
