A nice story over all with likable characters
23 December 2016 | by alipoopinkSee all my reviews

A typical straight to Netflix movie but I did quite enjoy this movie over the Christmas build up. The plot was different and the lead characters were likable. The angel in heaven who helps Sarah is a great character and I liked the entry to heaven concept with the iPad.The main male character was likable and his moments with Sarah added some humour. The young boy is great to watch on screen too. The ending was a bit confusing though in that it isn't quite logical to the whole story line but who cares!

A good movie to watch during the day in the lead up to Christmas with a cuppa and a few biscuits
