Funny and sweet family Holiday movie- something for everyone in this charmer
I watched this movie at the Seattle premier. I was happily surprised by the fun and sweet content of the film. I thought it would be a real "kids" movie and that I would be bored but it was completely the opposite. The script was well written with a few zingers for both kids and adults alike and the characters were likable and very real. The story line itself takes an original turn- even though it contains the echo of parent trap-like movies from the 60s and 70s. That may be why I like it so much- it stayed true to being a wholesome film suitable for the entire family but had enough humor and one liners in it to keep everyone entertained without feeling like they had seen it before. Plus, there is some really great original holiday music in it as an added bonus. I highly recommend taking your entire family to see this sweet, family film. Beware- the ending is so well written that it will invoke a few happy/joy tears. Loved it! It should be a Christmas tradition.
