Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

With its plots recycled from more popular Christmas tales about misers who hate joy and cheer, AN ANGEL FOR CHRISTMAS doesn't offer much dazzle.

But kids who are in the Christmas mood may enjoy this tale of do-gooders in the name of the holiday spirit. It's unlikely parents will move this film to the top of the Christmas flicks list, but it still imparts some decent lessons about compassion and the true meaning of the holiday.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
