Hannukah is a great time to watch "Full Court Miracle"!
28 January 2005 | by jillsypillSee all my reviews

If you enjoy gathering around the TV for a happy family movie, "Full Court Miracle" is an excellent choice. During Hannukah, the movie takes on the full importance of the true meaning of the festive holiday. It is an excellent way to point out the fine qualities of Judah and the Maccabbees. The movie also shows some fine morals about accepting all people, that may not have the same beliefs that you hold. Alex D. Linz is an exceptional child actor. Maybe in our own lives, miracles do not take place as they do in this movie, but it is nice to know that hope and perseverance can spawn a kind of "miracle". I highly recommend this movie to families of all faiths. It is very heartwarming and a joy to watch!
