Eric Close is so adorable in this. He plays the cutest Dad with the best laughter lines around his eyes. He really gives a great performance as well as looking like an absolute DILF.
It's a very Christmassy film, with lots of seasonal cheer, which I think is helped by the kids in it.
I like the idea that he's a toy maker, it gives the film an even more festive feel. I also like the thought that has gone in to the relationship, he gets tidier while she gets a bit messy. A compromise between them both to accept each other.
It's really rather charming and lovely. No unnecessary comedic characters and all acted very well.
