Good clean fun and heartwarming
28 May 2017 | by jk-692-236394See all my reviews

I thought this was a different movie with the same premise, when I started watching it. I was pleasantly surprised to realize I had never seen this one before. I enjoyed this one very much. The acting was quite good. I like how they used the middle child as the ignored/overlooked one,and main character. That is a dynamic they do not use much. He discovers new facts about everyone as the movie continues and it is realistic and enjoyable. They did not play everyone in broad clichés. Also they moved quickly through the every day is the same part, thank goodness. They focused on what he was learning and doing to change things. The message was really about paying attention to your life and what is around you, and being thoughtful and aware of others. Being kind, thoughtful and living in the moment. It actually moved me to tears more than once. Bailee Madison as the neighbor was great, as she always is. I do not watch movies twice, but I will watch this again at Christmas. Well done again Hallmark! Thank goodness for the Hallmark Channel and all the uplifting movies they churn out, Especially the Christmas ones.
