However, when the camera angle changes, his previously clean shoulder is now covered in leaves. See more »

Enjoyable, hug-your-family Christmas movie!
30 December 2013 | by chris-ywamSee all my reviews

Angels Sing was a lovely, whimsical comedy-with-tear-jerker moments.

Yes it was predictable, but it was a lovely Christmas movie which I am now going to add to our ever-increasing Christmas movie family extravaganza!

Having all the musicians in the movie could have been a bit more prominent, (I would have loved to hear HC Jr show us some of his amazing Christmas singing), but nevertheless I loved the music, which was fresh and not the overdone usual Christmas classics.

Give this movie a chance! I think you'll be hugging your family on the couch, and making up your own version of the 12 Days of Christmas!
