Is It Any Good?

Earnestness in its efforts to be uplifting holiday fare doesn't make up for the pedestrian writing, directing, and acting in this generic movie. Much of the plot is dependent upon happenstance, convenient discoveries, and cluelessness about the actual procedures in home foreclosure. The father-daughter relationship and the relationships of the large, loving Harrison family are thin and unconvincing. Still, it's harmless and contains some good -- if obvious -- messages, and horse lovers might enjoy some pretty pictures.
