This is one of those movies that makes one feel like it's really Christmas in the South. No sudden snowfall at the end. It is St Martinville, Louisiana, after all. However, that wouldn't make a difference in some Christmas romance movies. "Christmas on the Bayou" is a feel good movie. As someone else has said, it isn't corny.
Ed Asner is great as Papa Noel. Is he the REAL Papa Noel or not??? The other actors and actresses are perfect in their roles. The accents aren't over the top and the fact that it's still warm in December in Louisiana isn't lost in this film.
My only regret about "Christmas in the Bayou" the fact that Lifetime seems to have forgotten about it and no longer airs this fine movie. And it isn't available on DVD, either. Just Prime Video. I'd rather have it on DVD.
If Lifetime ever does air "Christmas in the Bayou" again, be sure to catch it. Joyeux Noël!
