I Really Connected with this Perfect Christmas Movie
23 January 2018 | by geheweSee all my reviews

This one was a delight from beginning to end. Starring Brooke Burns who I loved from The Most Wonderful Time of the Year (2008) and Fixing Pete (2011). Great to see her in a Christmas movie again. Loved Tom Everette Scott who played the lead actor and a widowed dad. He had the greatest presence with an unusual mannerism a little like Robin Williams. He's not the normal and this was tremendously effective with Brooke Burns. The little girl daughter and their interaction with her and Christmas made the movie effective. The story focused on these 3 main characters to its success. Loved how they did Christmas in this movie. The family gathered at different nights at family members houses to decorate a tree, make cookies, etc. The mystery of Brooke Burns character parents was well done and added depth to the movie. I agree with the Christmas Reviewer and want to see this one again next year. I only give about 1 in 10 movies a perfect 10 and that's after using IMDB to screen out the low rated ones. Well done. Well Done. Well Done.
