Not Exactly a Christmas Movie
13 March 2017 | by Christmas-ReviewerSee all my reviews

BEWARE OF BOGUS REVIEWS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW. WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. IF ITS A NEGATIVE REVIEW THEN THEY MIGHT HAVE A GRUDGE AGAINST THAT PRODUCTION. NOW I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 200 Christmas MOVIES. I HAVE NO AGENDA. I AM FARE ABOUT THESE FILMS.

In this film Mitch Albom has a pretty great life. Then two men come into his life, and he realizes something's missing. Albom witnesses first-hand how these two very different men not only live life, but celebrate it. They believe there's divine spark in all of us - and that a single person can make a big difference in others' lives, as long as they have a little faith.

This film seems to play at Christmas time on the Hallmark Channel. Now I find that funny because you never see "CHristmas Decor" anywhere. The film ends around Christmas time but you never see a tree.

Now what I loved the most about this film was the message that "You are not your Past". People "Can Change".

There is a scene in the film where Laurence Fishburne character is preaching and it brought me to tears. It was very moving and hits home.

Family safe but children will be bored. The film doesn't have a "Cookie Cutter" premise. Nice change pf pace from typical "Hallmark" film. If you get the chance watch it when its on.
