A So-So Hallmark Christmas Film
21 April 2016 | by jacob-916-219982See all my reviews

Christmas with Tucker is supposed to be a prequel to A Dog Named Christmas which itself was adapted into a Hallmark Hall of Fame film back in 2009. I haven't actually read the books these films were based off, so I can't actually compare them, but I can compare the two films.

In A Dog Named Christmas, there was a brief flashback involving the farmer's youth days with Tucker that took place around the 1940s. Here in Christmas with Tucker, those youth days are in the current time setting which was 2013. In other words, this film has continuity errors.

Honestly, Christmas with Tucker was a So-So Hallmark Christmas film and one of my least favorite Christmas films made by the company. The only good thing I love about it was the great acting by the actors involved with the film, especially Barbara Gordon as the grandmother. If the film's story and most of the characters were given improvements, this would've been a great Christmas film. If I had to choose between this and A Dog Named Christmas, I'll stick with A Dog Named Christmas. I also consider this another Christmas film from Hallmark to watch only once.
