Widower Tom Neil, a school counselor, recently married school coach Cindy Baer, a widow. Their respective offspring get along fairly well despite different parenting styles, but as their first Christmas with all the stepsiblings approaches, each set is desperate to respect their own seasonal traditions reminiscent of their late parents. Tom's father, retired preacher Joe Neil; and Cindy's mother-in-law (from her deceased husband Dave), businesswoman Evie, each liked by both, hope to bridge the gap, but when that fails, she returns home alone. Just that gets the kids reconsidering their pouting pact. —KGF Vissers
Lost Lewis Smith
I watched this 3 times to see Lewis Smith. i guess he was on the cutting room floor. Lewis is the best contemporary actor I've seen since the day of big studio & big stars. I'd buy anything he does but the business is more interested in nepotism than quality of performance. The story line touched on real issues & confusion in blended families. Many hallmark stories portray realistic content but entertainment still needs to give an escape from some of the daily conflict. Inspiration is so much desired in a very difficult political & financial climate. More period/teaching story lines are great for taking us away from daily disappointments.
