Goofs

After Nathan convinces Emilie to give him and the town two weeks, there is a montage of scenes implying the passage of time. However, in the final scene after the montage ends when Nathan comes out of the house and they're all admiring the lights, it's the same day as the day he convinced her to stay for two weeks. Also during the montage you see the Christmas tree up without any decorations; however, previously, when Alexander Foster shows up at her door, the tree is there and fully decorated. See more »

Love it !!!! Feel good movie of all time...
28 August 2007 | by taylorsterlingSee all my reviews

Whenever I feel like I need a pick me up, this is the one that goes into the machine...love, love, love it...never go wrong if you enjoy miracles and you believe...click your heels 3 times....another one is "It's a Wonderful Life..." The Bishop's Wife, Christmas in Conn...it appears this website will not allow you to post your comments unless their are 10 lines, so I am just writing now to fill up those ten lines :-)So I am babbling on, but you will truly enjoy this movie. It has everything for the family. For the kids, the parents, the grandparents, heck, even the-in-laws. THe story is woven around a lovely young woman who takes her sister's children away from the authorities and want to bring them to a place where they can have a better life. Hopefully this is enough to post....
