One of my top favorites!...along with part 1.
Although this movie was made in 2005, my review is here to say that these Christmas movies (part 1 & 2) are timeless...since they continue to be enjoyable year after year!
The talented Steve Guttenberg and talented Crystal Bernard carried the great plot so well!
I like it because it really stays focused on Christmas...and in a delightful way...and with magic...and with no annoying characters! That is the way GOOD Christmas magic movies are supposed to be.
The plot had a nice flow...not boring at all...all of the players were great...the lines and directing were great.
Thankfully their dialogue was not drowned out by blaring, annoying "music" or atrocious singing...as some other Hallmark Christmas movies are noted for having.
The only one oddity that stood out was Crystal's heavy TN accent...compared to her "mother," who had no accent and spoke ultra-refined. That didn't make any sense.
But in such an enjoyable movie as this...always a pleasure to watch... who cares??
