Storyline

Walter Meyer (Danny Glover) is a retired mechanic who lost the love of his life almost a year ago. For the holidays, he invites his now grown children and their families to his house (where they all grew up) for a traditional celebration. Walter soon realizes that if his bickering children and the rest of the family can spend five days together under the same roof, it will truly be a Christmas miracle.

Goofs

Four days before Christmas, we see the family attending a morning church service. We know the year is 2016 (indicated earlier in the movie), so we know the date is December 21, 2016. This was a Wednesday. It seems highly unlikely that there would be a Wednesday morning church service. See more »

Watch it! The Story is just light but really relatable.
2 July 2017 | by ellesangeloSee all my reviews

Not perfect but a good one of it's kind. Story about struggles in the family. It is personal - a mother is indeed the great foundation of the family. Once she's gone, it causes great shaking in the relationship. It is funny since the actors are naturally are. Note: I didn't cry but I laughed.
