Don't bother

I love Christmas movies. Watch them all year round. From cheesie to funny to deep. This was terrible. None of the characters were likeable. As for the child actor?? Nothing cute or charming or even believable fiesty. Just terrible. Wooden staged acting. I switched it off and she was a massive decider in that. Love James brolin but this was an awful movie.
