Not only can he not provide his family with the finer things, he has also found he is not as close to his kids as he would like to be. His 17 year-old son Kyle is constantly preoccupied with sports and will be leaving for college soon; his daughter Sienna (14) is always lost in her phone. So for the upcoming Christmas holiday, Jack has the brilliant idea to reconnect with his family while also trying to spark his desired career in writing by going on a Christmas vacation to a cabin resort in the mountains without any technological distractions - no phones, iPads, etc., and embark on their trip to have the best Christmas vacation ever!

Most under rated Christmas movie!
20 September 2020 | by maria-62789See all my reviews

Sweet, beautiful family movie! And the scenery is SPECTACULAR!! Came here to see where it was filmed and ended up sharing this review. Highly under rated Christmas movie. Burt Reynold's voiceover as the family dog is priceless! As a single romantic with no family, loved it just the same. Smiled all the way through. The teenage kids are perfect. And can't say enough about the STUNNING scenery!
