| O Henry Tale Updated In This Enjoyable Film
BEWARE OF FALSE REVIEWS & REVIEWERS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW TO THEIR NAME. NOW WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE FILM. IF ITS A NEGATIVE REVIEW THEN THEY MIGHT HAVE A GRUDGE AGAINST THE FILM . NOW I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 200 HOLIDAY FILMS. I HAVE NO AGENDA. I AM HONEST!

After "A Christmas Carol" and countless rip-offs of "It's a Wonderful Life" the O Henry book "The Gift of The Magi" is probably one of the most adapted works done at Christmas time. I can understand why. It's hard to go wrong adapting the beloved story. This film could have been

bad but, the film is truly faithful in the spirit of the original story. That is what makes this film work.

The Original tale of the "Gift of the Magi" took place in the 19th century. In this film the story is updated to the 21st Century. In this film a newly wed couple is having their first Christmas together. He loves working on classic car and she is a amateur photographer.

The leads in this are enjoyable and so is the supporting cast. What is nice about the O Henry Story is that "The Best Gifts are one the ones you give of yourself and making personal sacrifices for the person you love"

This film is well worth watching.
