BEWARE OF BOGUS REVIEWS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY REVIEWED ONE FILM. THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 200 Christmas MOVIES. I HAVE NO AGENDA. I AM FARE ABOUT THESE FILMS.

In this film Peter Falk reprises his role as Max the angel in this heartwarming holiday drama about two very different families who need his help at Christmas. This time, Max's job is at stake when his heavenly supervisor comes to earth to discipline him for contacting the wrong family in need. Also stars Katey Sagal, Tammy Blanchard, and Seann Gallagher.

Now this film is a "Typical" Christmas film but it is well done The story is cute but very predictable. What the film does correctly is cast likable people in all the roles. The film is not boring but it could of used a little more work on the story itself. Now that doesn't mean avoid the film. I want people to watch it because it is well made and has a huge heart that is in the center of the film.

Just don't think too much about the plot because you will be able to figure everything out after 10 minutes into the film.
