Joy Holbrook is a market researcher about to get a sweet promotion just in time for the holidays. But she receives an urgent phone call from home and rushes back to help her Aunt recover from surgery, reuniting with her former crush, Ben.
This movie was very heartwarming. It was also very timely as we see a lot of bad news on TV or violence it was great to sit for a wonderful family movie. I especially enjoyed seeing Peter Falk in drag,he's a great actor. Tammy Blanchard, has a way of getting everyone to cry with her, that can be very liberating. Katey Sagal and Gallagher were very funny together. The young boy, Alexander Conti was very convincing and believable. He is very handsome I hope to see him again he seems to have the appeal of Brad Pitt/Leo Di Caprio. Overall the story and the actors were superb. I loved the way the story went back to the past in Berlin. This was a great touch of bring the storyline to a different level. This tied in the family in the story and also the viewers, especially those who were there in Berlin when the wall went up. I have friends who commented on the validity of the story. Their comments were that the cast and actors made the story great. I would definitely compare it to It's a wonderful life. A Great movie,I'll buy it on DVD.
