Smokey mountain Christmas-greatest Christmas movie of all time
30 October 2006 | by bumpkin9601See all my reviews

I had just turned 4 when this movie was first released and I remember watching it at least 50 times since, but sure it has been more! I absolutely loved this warm Christmas story and how it brought them all together like a real family! Was so great! I am very grateful to have had the privilege of sharing such a movie in my lifetime and plan to share this movie with my own son time and again! You just don't see movies like that made anymore. Such a shame! It shows how love and trust in any family, blood or not, takes some time and patience. But is well worth it all in the end! Also it's just all around a great family movie for any age. As I had said before, I loved it when I was a kid and am planning to share it with my own kids as time goes on. I recommend to anyone looking for something that the whole family can enjoy this holiday to watch A Smoky Mountian Christmas! It's sure to warm your heart and put a smile on your face! So when you're looking for the right movie this Christmas season, don't forget to run out and pick up your copy! Enjoy and happy holidays!
