Well above average Christmas TV movie
8 December 2015 | by MattyGibbsSee all my reviews

This is a made for TV movie about a teenager who has a terrible Christmas day but gets to re-live it again and again. He gets the opportunity to change the way Christmas pans out.

It's a good natured tale and is very entertaining and while not laugh out loud funny, there are plenty of good light hearted moments. In addition there are also a few poignant moments. The setting is great but what makes this a well above average TV movie is the talented and likable cast. Whilst many TV movies suffer on this score, this one has a cast that features no weak links at all. Zachary Gordon is great as the teenager coming to terms with groundhog day and Bruce Dern adds class as the grumpy grandad. Bailee Madison also shines as the girl next door, putting in a very natural performance.

The usual Christmas messages abound but are dealt with here without the usual schmaltz. This has the feel of a much higher budgeted movie and is one of the best Christmas TV movies I've seen.

This is one of those films that is much better than you think it will be. As an easy to watch Christmas film this really hits the mark.
