Goofs

The number plate on Pat McKerrod's car has the number THE BO55 on it, this is definitely not a British registration number and would result in him being prosecuted. British number plates have 2 letters 2 figures and three letters ie. AB23 ABC. See more »

Quotes

[last lines]
Narrator: Well, this is certainly gonna be a Christmas we all remember. The year a wee girl showed us what Christmas really means: friendship and forgiveness. But the greatest gift of all is love. Or, in my case, socks. Again. Merry bloomin' Christmas to the lot of you.

Nice!
5 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

Based on other reviews, I watched and I'm glad I did - it was good! I have no idea why the overall rating is poor. The acting was excellent - children and adults - the scenery's lovely, and the story is pertinent - economic development. (I learned that the Irish say 'nigh' for now ;) which is either pronunciation or a different word - I plan to use it more often!) The story is completely clean, no harsh enmity just conflict. ..Although Pierce Brosnan insults his worker, and the worker insults his son - not great but not awful. This may be best for ages 8-9 and up, since there might not be enough action or shiny things for small tots. If you like this, also see Journey to the Christmas Star (Norway). That makes two great finds for me this season, I'll be watching this movie and that one again this year, and onward. Thanks, Netflix!
