Wonderful holiday film my entire family loved

Finally wholesome entertainment with uplifting values and well crafted, beautiful filmed and directed with a great cast. Good work Warner Brothers! Please make good films like I got to grow up with. I believe society has so many violent films with the wrong message for our kids! No wonder the world is like it is now. Films should strive for to reflect values like this more! A big thank you to the filmmaker who made this family gem that got lost by putting it out in summer. They threw a real winner away. So glad we found it through work of mouth on DVD.

Great messages
