Trivia

In the scene where Harry Connick Jr is trying to take the large snowman upstairs, the snowman is smiling. When you see the head of the snowman being stuffed up the attic stairs, the top down shot shows the snowman frowning. May have been intentional to show the snowman's unhappiness. See more »

Goofs

After Michael dodges the reindeer and dives off of his bicycle with his back to the camera, one shoulder of the actor's (or stunt double's) hoodie is covered in leaves and twigs, and his other shoulder is clean. However, when the camera angle changes, his previously clean shoulder is now covered in leaves. See more »

Absolutely Brilliant!
28 January 2015 | by rgates-223-339600See all my reviews

I will not make this long: See this brilliant movie! At parts it may seem silly, but the very profound parts will move you to tears. Willie Nelson is perfect in every way. He is so believable, but make sure you watch the very last scene! The one who steals this movie is Lyle Lovett! I am not sure a more beautiful smile has ever graced us. His haunting voice will leave shivers down your spine. There are a couple scenes towards the end that follow each other that are pure magic. It takes place while Lovett's gorgeous and haunting "Christmas Morning" is sung. A very likable movie that really grows on you. By the third watching, it will become a favorite! Watch it. And, grab the tissues!
